Security breakdown at White House ~ By Joseph Farah

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah By Joseph Farah Posted: December 05, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 It figures that a White House unconcerned about national security would have little care about clear and present security threats directed at the presidential team – or, at least, be oblivious to the potential. Maybe that's the story behind the story of the recent "gate-crashing" of a state dinner. The Salahis and President Obama at state dinnerIt seems Tareq and Michaele Salahi, two wannabe celebrities, were able to gain entry to the event and even get their photos taken greeting Barack Obama in a receiving line. But that's hardly the end of the story. Far more interesting are the Salahis' ties to the extremes of anti-Israel Palestinianism. Rashid KhalidiTareq Salahi served on the board of the American Task Force for Palestine, where Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi served as vice president. The names of both Salahi and Khalidi have been meticulously scrubbed from the task force website, although Salahi's bio still comes up on a Google cache search of the site. The Task Force lobbies for a Palestinian state and demands the so-called right of return for Palestinian "refugees" – a formula Israeli officials across the political spectrum have warned could destroy Israel by population genocide, with the Jewish state forced to accept millions of Arabs, thus diluting its Jewish majority. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel. He has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group. During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state. He has multiple times expressed support for Palestinian terror, calling suicide bombings a response to "Israeli aggression." READ FULL STORY >
