Ayers and Obama served on the board of The Woods Fund, and gave the Arab American Action Network $40,000, a group headed by Khalidi's wife.
The LA Times refuses to release the tape.
Khalidi supports suicide bombers:
During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state.
He has multiple times expressed support for Palestinian terror, calling suicide bombings response to "Israeli aggression." He dedicated his 1986 book, "Under Siege," to "those who gave their lives ... in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon." Critics assailed the book as excusing Palestinian terrorism.
The Times claims that its reporters promised the source of the tape it would not release it to the public. Maybe. Or is the Times, a very liberal paper, trying to protect Obama?
Two days ago the Audit Bureau of Circulations released a report on newspaper circulation. Overall, 4.6 percent fewer newsapers were sold compared one year ago.
The circuation of the Times was down 5.2 percent. The Chicago Tribune, owned by the same parent organization, saw its newspaper sales decline 7.8 percent.
Gee, I wonder why readers are running away from newspapers?
Newsbusters has a good thought:
Just a thought here, folks, but perhaps everybody is appealing for that Khalidi video in the wrong place. The Los Angeles Times staff won't easily release that video because of their obvious bias. However, the person who actually owns the LA Times is Sam Zell. I don't know Zell's politics but I do know he definitely doesn't want to lose readers. An appeal should be made for that video directly to Sam Zell. If Zell orders the Times to post that video on its website, the hits to that newspaper would reach an all-time high. If they don't then the Times will continue to bleed readers. Sam Zell: that is the person to contact. The e-mail addy I posted earlier didn't work. However I did fax him successfully at the L.A. Times. The fax # is: 213-237-3535. I sent it for free from a free fax site: FAX ZERO.
So did I.
