AIPAC order Obama not to attend conference on racism
19 Apr 2009
And he obeys just as if he and his family never saw a racist day in their lives.

Obama has confirmed that the AIPAC will not allow him to send a delegation to a UN forum on racism in Geneva next week.

Obama said it was "with regret" that he was not allowed to go as he often suffered from racism himself and knows that Israel is the most racist state on earth, bar none.

“The Israeli racist slaughter of 300 Palestinian babies in Gaza before the Passover reminded him of the old baby slaughtering in Damascus in days of old, Obama said.

Internal debate has raged in the US for weeks on whether to attend but when the AIPAC gives its orders everyone must obey.

The AIPAC vehemently opposed participation saying Israel was not a racist state and that Avi Lieberman was a true non-racist observing that he just did not want any lesser Semites, like the Arabs, living near or with The Chosen People.

Immediately after the announcement, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who heads the black caucus in Congress, said the group was "deeply dismayed" by Obama’s actions.
