I have repeatedly told people that Barack Obama chose Sotomayor as his judiciary pick because she is a perfect reflection of him, right down to the racism.
Don't believe me that Obama is a racist? Have you read "Dreams of my Father?"
My opinion catches a lot of flack, and that is fine. I know what I see. Problem is, many folks think that only white males can be racist. Everyone else has an excuse for their racism.
When someone agrees with me, but come to their conclusion for a different reason, it always catches my attention. When it comes to Obama being a racist, the opinion came from a place I hardly expected. The accusation came from Israel.
The fuel for the racist charge against President Obama comes regarding his policies against Jewish construction in eastern Jerusalem, and the West Bank. In a rally in front of the U.S. conslate in Jerusalem, 2,000 Israelis proclaimed that Obama is a racist, and that Obama's envoy to the conflict over Jerusalem, and outer territories, George Mitchell, needs to go home.
"Obama should not be pressing Israel to compromise and freeze building in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem," a protest organizer by the name of Yaacov Steinberg told World Net Daily.
The belief is that Obama's policies, if followed by Israel, would show Israeli weakness, and embolden Palestinian terrorists. Obama dictating to the Jews in the area where they can and can't live didn't go over too well either.
Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, said of the issue, "It's absolutely an outrageously racist policy. Especially in light of how Obama should be sensitive when it comes to anything that would remotely constitute discrimination of people based on ethnicity or religion."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly rejected the American demand.
"Imagine what would happen if someone were to suggest Jews could not live in or purchase [property] in certain neighborhoods in London, New York, Paris or Rome," he said.
