The Thinking Man’s Madrassa Smear

February 13, 2008 8:16 a.m.

If things continue on their current trajectory and Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee we should get used to much more of the still largely subterranean effort to scare Jews and broader portions of the electorate into believing that Obama is anti-Israel. The truth is that there’s little apparent difference between Obama’s position and Hillary’s or, for that matter, anyone else in the mainstream of the Democratic party or most of the non-Taliban wing of Republican party. Here’s a relatively mild example of the effort — a story in the New York Sun about how Obama supporter Zbigniew Brzezinski (the article calls him an ‘advisor’ — he’s probably something between a supporter and advisor) is leading a delegation to Syria sponsored by the highly controversial left-wing Rand Corporation.

On another front, here is a recent post at The Politico about emails sent out by a member of Clinton’s finance committee asking friends and acquaintances to “read the attached important and very disturbing article on Barack Obama.” The enclosed article is this one by the neanderthal American Thinker blog by Ed Lasky.

There’s much more of this going on than you realize. And it may be prepping to expand dramatically.
