Democratic Congressman Rahm Emanuel has accepted fellow Chicagoan Barack Obama's offer to be the White House Chief of Staff.
Back in April of 2007, I wrote the following, which is telling about Rahm Emanuel:
Who Stripped Jim Webb's Iran Clause?
Senator Jim Webb had introduced legislation that George W. Bush may not attack Iran without specific Congressional authorization. Webb's legislation would have made it clear that the authorization to use force against those who committed 9/11 was limited. Who killed that legislation?
AIPAC (The Jewish Lobby) did. Rahm Emanuel did. The Democratic Leadership Council did. The closet neocons in the Democratic Party did.

Emanuel is a Political Zionist and Religious Zionist rolled into one. He served in the Israeli military (the Israeli Defense Forces or IDF). This is not a good sign for peace in the Middle East. He calls Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations while his own father was a member of Irgun, a Political-Zionist terrorist organization without doubt. One wonders whether or not Rahm Emanuel might also be part of the Mossad (Israeli intelligence agency). I'm not saying he is an Israeli spy, but that sort of relationship certainly isn't rare amongst those who would be raised American but go join the IDF. Frankly, I believe there are many American Jews who would think that would be just fine. They want Israel and America to be joined at the hip and not for the right reasons.
Barack Obama is going to really go down in the polls. Many, many of the people who voted for him in the primaries and the general election are going to wish they had supported a peace candidate.
