CLEARWATER, Florida (AFP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday condemned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s anti-Zionist and anti-US remarks in his speech at the UN General Assembly.
“I strongly condemn President Ahmadinejad’s outrageous remarks at the United Nations, and am disappointed that he had a platform to air his hateful and anti-Semitic views,” Obama said in a statement. >>>>>
So, then does this mean that the change that Senator Obama has been seeking was from a just U.S. administration? Whatever points of change that Obama meant in his own campaign refers to precisely what Ahmadinejad was referring to. These are referred to as war crimes and violations of UN Resolutions, illegal occupations, murders, maiming, ethnic cleansing, kidnappings, false imprisonments, razing of lands, plunder and the list goes on. Aren’t people in Obama’s Democratic Party pushing for issues like impeachment; the withdrawal of troops from Iraq; war crimes indictments; restoring the previously removal of civil rights via the Patriot Act; and again the list goes on?
Is Sen. Obama pandering a bit too much? Where is the change he speaks about? If this is going to be the continuation of his efforts; then there will be little difference between the Republican and Democrat parties aside from a few collateral issues. As far as justice is concerned, Muslims are already at the bottom of that slope; they are just trying to avoid all others from avalanching on top of them.
