  1. Although not totally relevant to your February 15th piece above, I do think that an interesting article today by Akiva Eldar, Haaretz Correspondent, bears some relationship to the Obama “miracle” and those who would crush it. The link to the Eldar piece is as follows: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/954434.html. And one sample paragraph might help one to decide whether or not to read it:

    “Jewish advisers and non-Jewish supporters are almost obsessively occupied with searching for skeletons in the black candidate’s past. The Republican Party’s neoconservative clique is trawling archives for ‘anti-Israeli‘ essays by advisers who had been seen in Obama’s staff. Robert Malley, who was President Bill Clinton’s special assistant during the Camp David talks, joined Obama. The neoconservatives reached Malley’s father, a Jew of Egyptian descent, who, alas, kept childhood ties with Yasser Arafat. Malley junior is accused of publishing a joint article with an Oslo-supporting Palestinian, in which they dared to argue that Ehud Barak played a major role in the Camp David summit’s failure in July 2000.”

    For any number of reasons, this ostensibly pro-Israel effort becomes part of an anti-democratic (small “d”) process of disinformation and obscurantism, an end to be achieved by any means. I consider this attempt to harm Obama’s image and thus his candidacy more dangerous to the ultimate well-being of Israel than Obama would ever be. “With friends like these…” etc.
