Matt Brooks of the Republican Jewish Coalition responds:
“Regrettably, Robert Malley is but one of many people with troubling views advising Sen. Obama. We are still waiting for Obama to take principled action and remove Gen. McPeak – who has made disturbing and anti-Semitic comments about the American Jewish community. If Obama really wants to be a uniter, he should examine all the past associations and public comments of his advisors, and act accordingly.”
McPeak remains an advisor to Obama. As for Malley, the mainstream media has now at least restated the basic facts of Obama’s endorsement by Ahemd Yousef. But will anyone in the media pack following Obama today see fit to question him on the Malley connection with Hamas or on why he was receiving advice from Malley in the first place? You don’t even have to read the accounts to know the answer to that one.
