Is Obama a Victim of “Guilt by Association” or “Connecting the Dots”?

After receiving a comment on a recent post:

Obama Claims Mccain is “Loosing his bearings” regarding Hamas Support for Obama,

I wondered if Barack Obama was truly the victim of “guilt by association”. “Guilt by Association” is a phrase that everyone has been hearing a lot lately regarding attempts to connect or associate Barack Obama’s actual sentiments to those of his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t believe Obama shares the feelings or beliefs of his minister.”?

As I’ve stated in a previous post, I actually considered voting for Obama rather than Hillary Clinton but realized that I knew very little about him. So, I set about to find out more about him and the more I found out, the less I liked.

As before, in trying to determine whether Obama is a “victim” of “guilt by association”, the more I found out the less I liked.

The crux of the question of whether Barack is a victim is,

“Why would Hamas prefer Obama as president of the United States?”

Unfortunately, I didn’t have to look that far.

Power Line: Hamas Endorses Obama

Back in 2007, Barack Obama appointed a fellow graduate of Harvard Law School, Robert Malley, as a foreign policy advisor to his campaign. Malley has a track record as being anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian and writing numerous anti-Israeli articles in cooperation with former Arafat advisors.

Sorry about that … more “guilt by association”. But, like Obama’s minister, Robert Malley was hand picked by Obama. Malley has a long track record and his pro-Palestinian sentiments aren’t exactly a secret.

It’s interesting to note that, like Jeremiah Wright, Hamas leaders attribute any anti-Hamas rhetoric by Obama as simply political posturing, specifically referring to Obama’s criticism of Jimmy Carter and his recent Middle East visit.

Some might say that it’s ridiculous to think that Hamas leaders might have any intimate knowledge of Barack Obama in any way as close to what Jeremiah Wright might have known or knows. Well, enter Robert Malley again.

Robert Malley has direct connections with and access to Middle Eastern leaders through his participation in ICG, International Crisis Group, for which he is the Middle East and African advisor. This also puts him on the payroll of George Soros who founded ICG and currently serves on its executive committee.

A “bio” of Robert Malley on can be viewed with the following “cut and paste” web address:

There are also a number of other interesting “hotlinks” at this site.

Of very little surprise, Obama’s appointment of Robert Malley as a foreign policy advisor is stricklingly consistent with a similar position held by Jeremiah wright’s church.

Needless to say, all of these acts of”guilt by association” are being decried by Obama supporters as “dirty or negative politics” such as the following found in the Huffington Post:

Obama Hamas Ties Pushed In McCain Letter: So Much For “Respectful” Campaign

It’s no surprise that what some may consider “guilt by association” others might simply consider a process of “connecting the dots”.

And it’s very interesting to see where the dots lead.

  1. I don’t know, I enjoy connecting dots with McCain and finding associations that actually affect his actual politics and have affected his actions as Senator, that bely his character and how he would actually govern.

    Not this silly stuff. Oh no Barack knows someone who is pro palestine! I don’t know, I think most of this stuff is just about smearing and paranoid conspiracy theories.

  2. Then there is the crazy man in Iran, whom Obama wants to talk with that actually has some control over Hamas. Hmmm, I wonder if there is a connection there…
