Concerns have been raised among Israel supporters following the appointment of a controversial veteran political advisor by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.Last week, Obama introduced Zbigniew Brzezinski as “one of our most outstanding thinkers” during a policy speech on the Iraq war.

Brzezinski, selected by Obama to advise him on foreign policy affairs, has taken a highly critical stance towards Israel in the past, and has defended an academic attack on the American Jewish lobby which has been branded by some as being anti-Semitic. He has previously served as a national security advisor to President Jimmy Cater.

Brzezinki’s appointment immediately came under fire from Harvard law professor Alan Dershowiz, who was quoted by the Politico website as saying: “It is a tremendous mistake for Barack Obama to select as a foreign policy adviser the one person in public life who has chosen to support a bigoted book.”

One of the most troubling aspects of Brzezinski’s appointment for allies of Israel is his defense of the book, ‘The Israel Lobby,’ by American academics Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer. In it, the academics attack what they say is an overly powerful Jewish lobby which is damaging America’s interests. Their case has been accused of echoing traditional anti-Semitic thought and critics say it is based on faulty scholarship. But Brzezinski has described critics of Walt and Mearsheimer as “McCarthyists.”

    Obama’s policies are like internet sex.

    All talk and promises with no credibility or experience.

    Obama is causing more trouble than he is worth. He is Insane, and has a quirk that is very weird. Obama reminds me of a radical Muslim for some reason, just waiting to pounce. He has that back ground and upbringing and his wife has a subtle influence that is not good. She is a bitter woman, on a mission. Something is just not jiving about these two as true Americans? Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall when Barack and Michelle talk and they think no one is listening!! Juicy!!!

    I agree. I see Obama as an extremist who is all talk that sounds really good but just has no experience and no proven character that is becoming of a leader that America needs right now. America’s security is at stake with this guy talking his flip flop mumbo jumbo. Does Obama think we are suckers for his oratory skills? Come on America !

    If you read and listen to Barack Obama carefully you can note Barack has very tiny hesitations of speech — almost unnoticable “blocking.”  While this often indicates an attempt to pre-censor oneself, in Barack’s case he has actually practiced telling stories so much at home with Michelle and others he has brain-washed himself, so he appears “even to himself” to be telling the truth.

    There is a Muslim word in the Koran (Quran) for this type of mental training . . . do YOU know what it is?  Barack’s Muslim half-brothers and sister know it, and his Muslim father knew . . . is it time for you to find out?  Check it out!

    @Charlie Ross: It’s called “Taqiyya”…Islamic permission to lie for the sake of Jihad

    So he appears  (kinda sorta) ”even to himself” to be telling the truth.  Yeah, there is a way that kinda sorta seems right to a man, but- ttttt that way is the way of death.  Oh dear!
    What is this mental training, so I’ll never take part?  I’ve lived too sheltered life, which could be good, and not so good.  So much of this Form of Insanity is hard to grasp, for me.  It’s too deep. . . Taqiyya – OK I’m lost!  Sorry, but glad to be learning this, better late than never.  I went to college but studied horticulture, and never heard of a Muslim, now that is a good thing.  So I’m green in more areas than one.
