Letter From Shalom International President

Just how many people is Obama going to sacrifice playing his very stupid and immature politics? When Obama offers to unconditionally meet and offer direct diplomacy and dignify America's and Israel's enemies, he is betraying all of their victims and showing extreme weakness to those Islamic Nazis and other criminals.

Groveling and appeasement has never worked, but why would Obama care to read history when he wants to repeat it? The very Arabs who were aligned with Hitler in WWII and participated in the Holocaust then, cowardly denied both the Holocaust and their role in it, but now want to finish the job. They have an ally in Obama who is the worst person for Israel and America's security AND CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

PLO's Arafat claimed the Mufti of Jerusalem with his 20,000 "SS" and committed to the mass murder of all Jews in Palestine, was his uncle and those Arabs in all their named forms have never stopped killing Jews ever since. From Hitler to Hamas, the Holocaust Continues.

That Iran denies the Holocaust, but wants to nuke Israel. This doesn't concern Obama, who keeps changing the subject and saying that Iran's strength is because of Bush's Iraq policy.
Yet, Obama wants to legitimize Iran and his own 'social work' foolishness, when not only Israel is a target, but also America.

Our enemies don't talk. They KILL! They want all Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and "Infidels" dead... Obama's 'doubletalk' will not change that...nor Obama's support from Rev. Wright, Farrakhan, Jimmy Carter, Robert Malley (just released from Obama's campaign for meeting with Hamas) and a host of other supporters of Hamas, etc.

It's either them or us. Obama represents such an immense danger to America's and Israel's survival with his outrageous and reckless naivety, that it will only invite more attacks upon us. In these days of weapons of mass destruction and those who are willing to use them, no matter the cost, Obama's 'peace at any price' mentality, is just that kind of impotence, our enemies will take advantage of.

Pakistan's Bhutto, before her assassination, said that dealing and giving in to the terrorists was a disaster. You give an inch, they take an arm and a leg. But don't tell Obama, whose arrogance and elitism is revealing and why he is surrounded by those who want to negotiate with Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia...all committed to Israel's destruction, and who likewise support Obama for the White House. Perhaps Obama will invite Osama in for 'talks' too.

Here is the latest example of how those in Gaza and the West Bank, who have Hitler as their hero, feel about making peace with Israel, while those like Obama keep insisting that Israel 'talk' and give up everything and get nothing but more war in return. It is this exact experience that is endangering America as well. Remember "9/11"? We will make sure that the Jewish community and Christians and other communities fully understand the threats that Obama's politics presents to Israel, America and the West.

If the Democrats are so dumb as to select Obama as their candidate, they are guaranteeing McCain's election. Florida will be a pivotal state in this election. Jewish, Christian Zionists and others will bring the majority to understand the great dangers that Obama represents and is pushing the U.S. into.
Yours in Shalom,
Bob Kunst

I'm a libertarian, but I'm still somewhat "iffy" on Bob Barr.

What really surprised me was his statement about the Presidential Debates.

Where is Bob Barr polling today? I would suspect that he is polling well below 1%.

Thus, how is he ever going to raise his support to over 15% of registered voters in less than 14 weeks? That would have to be one of the most dramatic turn arounds in U.S. political history.

Given his lack of funds, I just don't see how he can do it. I wonder what his strategy is?
