Lincoln University, which gets public funds, hosted an event on their campus in 2003 When I called today and asked if the College condoned hate speech and violence they refused to answer me. I asked them if they ever hosted a Muslim group or a Muslim event they denied this. Somehow this College hosted a event without their knowledge with Kaukab Siddique and Abdulalim Addullah Shabazz, a former teacher of mathematics and former Professor at Lincoln University, is a Member of a Hate Group .. the Nation of Islam. Connection to the White House is Nation Of Islam leader is Louis Farrakhan who is best buddies with Rev Wright.
Abdulalim Abdullah Shabazz is a former mathematics professor at Lincoln University, in Pennsylvania. He participated in a JAM event at Lincoln in April 2003 with Kaukab Siddique, who has called him the "educationist and philosopher of" the group. During the event, Shabazz argued that American policies in the Middle East, particularly support for Israel, are based on the concept of "white supremacy." Shabazz is a former member of the Nation of Islam.
Another connection of is Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General, is the founder and leader of the anti-Israel International Action Center (IAC). IAC views Hezbollah, Palestinian terror groups like Hamas and groups fighting U.S. forces in Iraq as legitimate popular resistance forces and a bulwark against U.S. imperialism and "Israeli terrorism." IAC's affiliated anti-war group, ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), has been one of the main anti-war protest movements in the U.S. since 2001 ANSWER
If you remember from my other Blog "Emmanuel Lopez, PLO, Hamas, ANSWER Coalition, CAIR" organization the connection to Obama is through Ramsey Clark aka William Ramsey Clark who pressed impeachment charges against Bush for the war when his real reason was because Bush was friends with Israel.
Is Hezbollah a Terrorist Organization?

JOHN GIBSON, HOST: You might have thought you heard it all, but no. Former Democratic Attorney General Ramsey Clark thinks President Bush has committed an impeachable crime for providing funds to Israel while it battles Hezbollah terrorists. Clark has also announced a planned "National Emergency March" on Washington, along with several anti-war and Muslim groups.
Let's debate that one with Brian Becker, national coordinator for the Answer Coalition, which is taking part in the march, and Ariel Cohen, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
So, Brian, you first, how does President Bush deserve impeachment?
BRIAN BECKER, ANSWER COALITION NATIONAL COORDINATOR: Well, I want to start by saying that Mr. Ramsey Clark and tens of thousands of other people will be joining us on August 12 in front of the White House for a mass demonstration to protest the Israeli bombing of Lebanon and the bombings of Gaza, crimes that we can see have taken the lives of almost 700 people in the last two weeks and crimes that the Bush administration fully supports.
The Bush administration gives Israel $15 million each and every day. That's about $3 billion a year, and he has lied to the people of the United States and lied to Congress and lied to the whole world when he said this is somehow a struggle against terrorism.
The acts of the Israeli government, the Israeli Air Force, with U.S.-supplied weapons and U.S. taxpayer money are acts of terrorism against civilians. Almost 800 Lebanese and Palestinian people have died.
GIBSON: Mr. Cohen?
ARIEL COHEN, HERITAGE FOUNDATION: Well, we are hearing and seeing the big lie, the big lie of Ramsey Clark and of Mr. Becker who haven't met a dictator they didn't like.
Ramsey Clark goes all the way back to the 60s and the 70s. He is a lawyer for and supporter of Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic in Bosnia, the convicted war criminal Radovan Karadic. So now these people who are connected to North Korean communist regimes, who are supporters of Fidel Castro and of Hugo Chavez, are coming and telling the American people what policy President Bush should conduct.
It's obvious that Israel is defending herself. Israel was attacked across the international border. And Israel is an ally of the United States in the global War on Terror. Hezbollah is an “A” team on the global War on Terror. And Iran is a sponsor.
GIBSON: Brian Becker, how can you attack the United States in this way and not similarly attack the actions of Hezbollah?
BECKER: Well, Mr. Cohen and many others like him who are apologists for the Israeli war criminals, they cannot find one crime that the Israelis commit that they defend as an act of retaliation.
GIBSON: Brian, I asked you a question about Hezbollah. Do you have an answer or are you just going to dodge it?
BECKER: Hezbollah was born in 1982 after Israel carried out the invasion of Lebanon, taking the lives of 17,000 Palestinians and Lebanese.
GIBSON: Brian, Hezbollah has been shooting rockets into Israel. Are you endorsing this?
BECKER: Do you want me to answer that question or do you want to pepper me with questions?
GIBSON: I'm going to ask you questions, Brian. Do you want to answer them?
BECKER: Why invite guests if you don't want them to answer the questions?
GIBSON: Mr. Cohen, go ahead.
BECKER: I would like to answer the question. Do I consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization? The answer is no.
COHEN: Excuse me. I will answer the question.
BECKER: The Lebanese people are considering those who are dropping bombs on them to be terrorists.
GIBSON: Brian, if I've got it straight, you say Hezbollah is not a terrorist organization?
BECKER: No. Ask the Lebanese people, Christians, Sunni, Shiites. Right now Hezbollah has tremendous popular standing.
GIBSON: Mr. Cohen, what about Hezbollah, has it terrorized the Israelis?
BECKER: Right now the Israeli government has killed 800 Lebanese. Those bombs are dropping every day.
GIBSON: Mr. Becker, I asked Mr. Cohen a question. Mr. Cohen, is Hezbollah terrorizing Israelis?
BECKER: Yesterday, in Qana more than 60 people were killed, most of them children.
COHEN: As I said, Brian Becker — if Brian Becker wants to scream, he can scream. But Hezbollah is responsible for massacre of the Lebanese Christians, is responsible for Lebanese Muslims.
BECKER: Go back to Sabra and Shatila, my friend.
COHEN: OK. And Hezbollah is a fully owned subsidiary of the Islamic Republic of Iran, of its mullah regime that is trying a diversionary tactic not to be exposed for the nuclear military program that Iran is pursuing.
And Hezbollah started its attack against a recognized international border so that the world's attention will go away from Iran and at the Arab-Israeli conflict right now.
BECKER: Even the Christian community in Lebanon, according to all the polls, shows that those who are resisting the Israeli bombings have very strong popular standing.
GIBSON: Let me get this straight. Are you taking the position that Hezbollah is an innocent party here and is not stockpiling weapons and firing them at Israel?
BECKER: I think both sides have armies. I think both sides have weapons. But the use of the label terrorism is in order to demonize one side and justify any crime committed against the Palestinian and Lebanese people. And in that sense the word terrorism, if you're going to use the word…
COHEN: Hezbollah and Hamas are targeting innocent civilians and you know full well they killed children, they killed mothers, they killed grandmother.
BECKER: What do you say about the airstrike yesterday in Qana? What about all those children who were pulled from the rubble yesterday in Qana?
GIBSON: Before I go, Mr. Cohen, thank you very much. Brian Becker, you did notice that Hezbollah was shooting rockets from that building.
BECKER: Every time an Arab shoots back, they're a terrorist, but Israel can commit any crime.
GIBSON: Brian Becker, thanks a lot. Ariel Cohen, thank you.

In the U.S., the Day of Action was initiated on just one week's notice by a call from the ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom, Free Palestine Alliance, National Council of Arab Americans, and Al-Awda - International Palestine Right to Return Coalition. In Washington DC, over 20,000 took to the streets in the freezing rain to demand, "Let Gaza Live!" The streets were so backed up that thousands of people in buses and cars were still arriving after the march had left Lafayette Park.
The demonstration began with a rally at the White House. Featured speakers included former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who was just on a humanitarian relief mission attempting to bring supplies to Gaza when the boat she was on was intentionally struck by an Israeli military vessel; Mahdi Bray, Executive Director, Muslim American Society Freedom; Rev. Graylan Hagler, National President of Ministers for Racial, Social and Economic Justice; Mounzer Sleiman, Vice Chairman, National Council of Arab Americans; Ralph Nader; Paul Zulkowitz, Jews Against the Occupation; Brian Becker, National Coordinator, ANSWER Coalition; Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, attorney and co-founder, Partnership for Civil Justice; and others.
The spirited march then led to the Washington Post, where demonstrators denounced the paper for its biased pro-Israeli coverage of the massacre and its complete blackout of protest activities in the United States.
In San Francisco, 10,000 took part in the march and rally. The rally included a huge outpouring from the local Arab community, and energetic participation from Bay Area youth.
A crowd of 2000 demonstrators confronted a heavy police presence in downtown Orlando for the "Let Gaza Live: Florida Statewide March for Palestine" called by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism Coalition/Florida—just six days prior. The demonstration is the largest anti-war demonstration in Florida in more than a decade and certainly the largest ever protest in Florida calling for a free Palestine. Police tried to intimidate marchers by initially searching all bags, forcing protesters to remove sticks from signs, and denying the use of amplified sound. Organizers and protesters challenged and pushed back their unwarranted scare tactics, and the protest turned out to be a powerful success.
In Los Angeles, 10,000 people participated in a regional mass march and rally to “Let Gaza Live” at the Westwood Federal Building. Hundreds of Palestinian flags and signs reading “Stop bombing Gaza!” and “The real terrorists: U.S./Israel war machine!” lined all sides of the street and the lawn in front of the federal government headquarters. It was the largest protest and the first major march in Southern California since the Israeli bombing campaign and invasion began.
A funeral procession led the march with makeshift coffins draped with Palestinian flags, representing the hundreds of people killed by Israel’s genocidal attack on Gaza. Hundreds of children followed, along with a huge, hand-made Palestinian flag, in a contingent organized by the Palestinian American Women’s Association.
The worldwide movement is continuing to grow with more protests today, Jan. 11. There will be countless other actions in the days to come. Today in New York City, the police carried out a violent assault against those marching in mid-town Manhattan in support of the people of Palestine. A number of people were injured and arrested.
With the support of the United States, the Israeli military machine has expanded its invasion into urban areas of Gaza. The death toll among Palestinians is now nearly 900, with many thousands wounded. The injured and hungry of Gaza have no relief. We must do everything in our power to deepen and broaden this movement in the coming days.
Donate today so we can keep this movement growing
A heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated in the last week to help pay for the expenses for the many mass demonstrations that took place on Jan. 10. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of individuals who came forward to donate. We must go forward. The war is deepening. The death toll is climbing. We will be in the streets again in the next few days. Please continue to show your generosity and commitment and make a donation today by clicking this link.
