Obama’s Pan-Terrorist, Anti-Israel Republican: About Rep. LaHood, Scary New Transportation Secretary

By Debbie Schlussel
Obama’s appointment of Rahm Emanuel’s close friend, Congressman Ray LaHood of Illinois, is emblematic of the types of “Republicans” Obama likes–RINOs.
LaHood, who is retiring from Congress, was one of the most anti-Israel Republicans–no, make that, one of the most anti-Israel Congressman–which has a lot to do with his Lebanese heritage. Although he’s a Christian, LaHood was not exactly opposed to Hezbollah or HAMAS. And don’t forget his sponsorship of the anti-Israel “Rachel Corrie Resolution,” among many other damaging votes he cast on the Middle East. (In case you don’t know, Corrie is the granola-y bim, who aided Palestinian terrorists, laughingly burned the American flag for them, then got herself killed when she stood in front of an Israeli bulldozer, trying to destroy a terrorist smuggling hideout and the driver didn’t see her–call it natural self-selection.) He’s soft on Syria and Bashar Assad, too.
And then, there’s his 2000 sponsorship of H.R. 2121, the Secret Evidence Repeal Act, designed to protect Islamic terrorists in our midst by disallowing courts and law enforcement to use profiling, secret evidence, and secret methods and sources to fight terrorism on our soil. His fellow sponsors were the usual pan-terrorist friends of Sami Al-Arian, then in Congress, Democrat David Bonior, and Republicans Darrell Issa a/k/a Jihad Darrell and Tom Campbell.

Ray LaHood: Obama’s New Transportation Sec. Loves Hezbos, HAMAS & Other Terrorists

In May, he sent a joint letter with Democratic Congressman David Price, calling on President Bush to pressure Israel and equating Israel’s defense of its citizens against terrorist rocket attacks to those terrorist attacks. The letter was supported by the usual cast of anti-Israel and far-left Jewish characters: the Arab-American Institute (which openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah), Americans for Peace Now, Israel Policy Forum, J Street, and Churches for Peace in the Middle East (which boycotts Israel and had members serve as human shields to protect Palestinian Islamic terrorists).
He’s made several trips to Lebanon with fellow Hezbo-panderers in Congress, Republican Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” and Democratic Nick Joe Rahall. Each time, he returned with either attacks on Israel or moral equivocation of Israelis and the Iranian-backed terrorist group that murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and officials.
Normally, I’d say it’s great to get LaHood out of Congress, where he can continue to be Hezbollah’s water carrier and do damage to American interests in the Mid-East. But he retired from Congress. He was out of the picture. Now, Obama has resuscitated this classic specimen of a political hack without a conscience.
Far more disturbing, as Transportation Secretary, LaHood will have access to classified information about when and where our nuclear weapons and toxic materials are being transported on federal highways. Should a man who carried water for HAMAS and Hezbollah in Congress have access to this info? Sadly, he’ll have it.
And that’s a very scary thought.
More scary, given his views on profiling and secret evidence, is the fact that LaHood will oversee the FAA. Think about that the next time you’re flying and the six flying imams get on the plane.

Thanks for the heads-up Debbie. This is quite disturbing and I for one, don’t like the way President elect Obama’s cabinet is taking shape.

Ms Schlussel: Great post. And to be found nowhere but on your blog! I never knew all this about LaHood when he was in office: I just knew he always struck me as “lacking.” What a creep. Compare him to the very outspoken Lebanese ex-pat Brigitte Gabriel: While she is very outspoken regarding the abuse of Lebanese Christians at the hands of their Muslim countrymen, LaHood carries their water for them. Clearly a dhimmi. Pathetic.
[GJ: UM, SORRY, BUT I'LL HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH YOU ON SELF-PROMOTING FRAUD BRIGITTE GABRIEL. I USED TO LIKE AND SUPPORT HER AND PROMOTED HER ON MY SITE. BUT SHE RECENTLY SPOKE AT AN EVENT TO RAISE MONEY FOR AN ORGANIZATION WHOSE EMPLOYEES DEFENDED HEZBOLLAH DEATH THREATS ON MY LIFE. WHEN I INFORMED HER OF THIS, SHE REFUSED TO CANCEL THE SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT, BECAUSE TO HER SELF-PROMOTION AND SELLING BOOKS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT OPPOSING HEZBOLLAH DEATH THREATS ON OTHERS' LIVES. THIS IS THE REAL BRIGITTE.
MEMBERS OF HER ORGANIZATION WANTED TO BOYCOTT THE FISHER-PRICE DOLL THAT SAYS "ISLAM IS THE LIGHT" ON BLACK FRIDAY, BUT BRIGITTE OPPOSED IT. AND SHE FIRED ONE OF HER TOP ADVISORS AFTER HE AND ANOTHER PERSON WROTE AN ARTICLE ON SAUDI-FUNDED FACULTY AT A U.S. UNIVERSITY. THAT'S NOT TO MENTION HER IGNORANT PRAISE OF PAN-JIHADIST BENAZIR BHUTTO. BRIGITTE'S A COMPLETE FRAUD WHO REALLY DOESN'T KNOW A LOT OR GET IT, WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT. SADLY, I WAS FOOLED BY THIS DIVA. DS]

Too many people assume that because a guy is a Lebanese Christian is sympathetic towards Israel. Not so. The most anti Israel people I met during my college years (class of 1975) were Lebanese Christians. These Chicago (Illinois) politicians should make everyone sick.

And you were expecting someone different!

Thanks Debbie – you know Brit Hume & API are using your blog as a reference.
Wake up ! Obama is a Communist,Fascist – Trilateral Commission Zbigniew Brzezinski boy! This was all Planned. Where do you think he got the $600M , Congressional Resolution 511 Bill was sponsored by Obama making McCain a natural born citizen, there is no Constitution, and no rule of law we have been coned since JFK and they have disposed of it since the Warren Court, Welcome to the US Socialist State of American.
‘We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism
to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in
giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly
awake to find they have Communism.’
– Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev, 1959
The Rockefeller Plan for Obama – http://www.newswithviews.com/Cuddy/dennis144.htm
Twas the night before Christmas, and with with great elation,
Barack Obama was planning to ìchangeî the nation.
Corporate stockings were hung at the Congress with care
in the hopes that bailouts soon would be there.
The public was nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of tax cuts danced in their heads.
Women in their kerchiefs and men in their caps
had unfortunately settled for political c___.
When over the airwaves there arose such a clatter,
people sprang from their lethargy to see what was the matter.
Away to the TV, they flew like a flash,
heard economic bad news and feared for their cash.
Stocks on the Dow hit a new fallen low,
creating more fears down the tubes we would go.
When what to our tearful eyes should appear
but Congressional leaders allaying our fears.
With their leader Obama so lively and quick,
we knew in a moment there must be a fix.
More rapid than politicians fleeing all blame,
Barack whistled and called his allies by name.
Now Daschle, now Geithner, now Gates and Biden,
on Rahm, on Pelosi, on Reid and Clinton (Hillary).
“To the top of the world,” we heard him call,
ìProclaim our agenda, Socialism for all!îÖ
Obama flashing his smile spoke in such prose
that the world was in awe at this king that arose.
He sprang to his throne, to his team gave a whistle.
National sovereignty was gone without the firing of missiles.
But I heard him exclaim from his lofty height,
Now I possess such great power, thereís no use to fight (it)!

How about an expose of Rahm Emmanuel or is he considered one of the good guys?
http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=322
Excerpt:
But the Zionist Jew, Rahm Israel Emanuel, who is a dual Israeli/US citizen, will do much more than ìkick ass & take names.î Emanuel will act as an effective spy in the White House for the Mossad, Israelís intelligence agency. With Emanuel running the White House, Mossad HQ will enjoy an unprecedented direct flow of Americaís highest level national security information.
Emanuelís connections to the Mossad began at birth in 1959. Rahm Emanuel is the son of Israeli-born physician, Benjamin Emanuel, who passed secret codes for Menachim Beginís Israeli terrorist group known as the Irgun. ìSecret codesî are the province of the Mossad, and the Mossad, only.
