frandroid: A key enters the map of Palestine (palestine)
National Union's Katz reminds Emanuel he's Jewish

Katz claims that in a private meeting with the unnamed leader, Emanuel said, "In the next four years, there will be a peace agreement with the Palestinians on the basis of two states for two peoples, and it does not matter to us who is the prime minister."


Political postering? (hat tip: [livejournal.com profile] richardhetu)

[livejournal.com profile] chapatimystery brings to light some of the unsavory connections of two of Obama's new peeps... Many people have talked about Rahm Emanuel and his commitment to Zionism, but Sepoy also brings up Sonal Shah's RSS roots. In a latter entry, Sepoy writes about his belief that Obama cannot be summed by his advisers, but commenters aren't so hopeful. Someone in the comments there links to CounterPunch's devastating profile of Shah's Sangh Parivar connections, and an explanation of why that's bad, for those who don't follow Hindu-supremacist politics. The article also describes the Center for American Process, the Democratic thinktank where Obama's transition team comes from. What's the point of evincing Hillary when you get all of Bill's people in?

Special kudos to [livejournal.com profile] esizzle for kicking me in the pants about Rahmbo.
