Surprise!… Obama's Trinity Church *Hearts* Hezbollah
Obama Spoke Out For Israel– His Church Spoke Out For Hezbollah
In an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg this weekend at The Atlantic Barack Obama insisited that he was a staunch supporter of Israel and even referenced his statements in support of Israel (video here) during the Israel-Hezbollah War in 2006:
When Israel invaded Lebanon two summers ago, I was in South Africa, a place where, obviously, when you get outside the United States, you can hear much more critical commentary about Israel’s actions, and I was asked about this in a press conference, and that time, and for the entire summer, I was very adamant about Israel’s right to defend itself. I said that there’s not a nation-state on Earth that would tolerate having two of its soldiers kidnapped and just let it go.
But, although the Illinois senator spoke out for Israel his church didn’t.
Barack Obama’s church of 20 years spoke out in support of Hezbollah.

U.S. Must Stop Middle East Violence
The escalating Middle East violence and the continued bombing of Lebanon and Gaza is threatening regional stability. Though appeals have gone out from the religious community for the United States and other world leaders to intervene diplomatically, as of Wednesday when the TUCC bulletin is published, the U.S. refuses to call for a cease-fire. Instead, the U.S. is increasing arms shipments to Israel and Congress has passed resolutions declaring unconditional support for Israel’s devastating military campaigns.
Hezbollah’s opportunistic raid that captured Israeli soldiers and rocket attacks on Israel have been nearly universally condemned. However, the excessive force with which Israel is responding goes far beyond defense against Hezbollah and promises to destroy most of what has been rebuilt in Lebanon since its civil war 15 years ago. The disproportionate attack on Lebanon may backfire, strengthening Hezbollah,increasing sectarian strife, and weakening Lebanon’s democracy and security.
As Israeli troops drive further into southern Lebanon and the bombings continue, the U.S. State Department needs to shift direction radically and President Bush should call for an immediate cease-fire to stop the growing loss of civilian lives in Lebanon. In 14 days thus far, over 400 Lebanese and 54 Israelis have been killed. The critical humanitarian needs worsen every day.
It is urgent that Trinity members, visitors and videostream “members” contact their members of Congress and President Bush and ask them to work proactively, especially with the Israeli government, to restrain the use of military force and to reach a negotiated cease-fire in Lebanon and Gaza. Weakening Lebanon and threatening regional stability are against U.S. interests. Only U.S. cooperation in renewing comprehensive negotiations will bring a fair peace and lasting security to Israel and the region.

Pastor Jeremiah A Wright, Jr
Do you suppose the Obama’s missed this church bulletin, too?
This is the same pastor who believes, “Israel is a dirty word.”
It is interesting how the words of Obama’s church of 20 years conflict with everything Barack Obama says today from the campaign trail.
It’s a bit strange.
Ed Lasky wrote much more on Obama’s Israel policy back in March, 2007 at The American Thinker.
