McCan Camp Hits Obama on Jackson’s “Zionists” Statement

The McCain campaign issued this statement by foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann:


“According to a prominent Democratic supporter of Barack Obama, the ‘Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades’ will ‘lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.’ It should not surprise anyone that Obama’s supporters see what others, from the terrorist group Hamas to Iranian President Ahmadinejad, have seen: an Obama presidency would bring real change to America’s policy of support for Israel. Barack Obama has claimed that nobody has suffered more than the Palestinians, praised a former spokesman of a Palestinian terrorist group for reminding him of his own ‘blind spots’ and ‘biases,’ and told the New York Times that Hamas and Hezbollah have ‘legitimate claims.’ Barack Obama expressed support for Jerusalem being the undivided capital of Israel and switched his position 24 hours later in the face of criticism from Palestinians. Barack Obama has said it is a “disgrace” that the United States has not met unconditionally with leaders committed to Israel’s destruction. Now, Barack Obama claims to be a strong supporter of Israel but his supporters — here and abroad — know better.”
