Jeremiah Wright's influence is far reaching (UPDATED)

Apparently:

The Obama administration is barring a significant group of Israel's nuclear technicians from entering the U.S.:

NRG/Maariv (Hebrew link only, sorry) reported today that the Israeli government was stunned when every nuclear technician at Israel's Dimona reactor who had submitted visa requests to visit the United States for ongoing university education in Physics, Chemistry and Nuclear Engineering had their visa applications summarily rejected, specifically because of their association with the Dimona reactor.

If this is true and I'm having trouble finding anything but the link in Hebrew to corroborate, the ramifications are huge.  And clearly, Obama has turned the concept of friends and enemies on its head.

I think I've had my fill of this sort of hope and change.

UPDATE: From the comments:

English translation of the article from above:

Bottom line on this one is that if they were Iranian nuclear scientists Obama would be tripping over himself and bowing to everyone in sight to get them into the US for a conference on nuclear physics.

But because these scientists are Jews he decides to make an international point of humiliating them.

It's because he's a bigot. How else do you explain why he bars scientists from an academic conference?

The money graph:

Israel's Dimona nuclear reactor's employees have told Israel's Maariv daily that they have been having problems recently getting visas to the United States where they have for years attended seminars in Chemistry, Physics and Nuclear Engineering. They also complain of being treated in an 'insulting manner' by President Obama's people. Until recently, employees of the Nuclear Research Center routinely traveled to the United States for seminars and courses.

Not good enough just to deny their visas, Obama's people had to be rude and offensive too. That kind of crap comes from the top down.

jim m:

The real question is: When will people stop being surprised that Obama is an anti-Semite?

And with regard to friends and enemies, Obama does not consider our traditional allies as 'friends' since they are democracies and Obama hates democracy. He has been actively driving off all of our allies for the last year. He has been trying to cozy up to thug regimes that in truth reflect what kind of leader he wants to be.

Secondly, there has not been any allegations of misuse here. This is just another anti-Semitic slap at Israeli citizens. Obama likes to consider himself an academic. There is a powerful anti-Semitic influence in academia that has shown itself in attempts to isolate Israeli scientists and punish them for their nationality and religion.

Last, Obama has shown himself an anti-Semite in his dealings with the Israeli government and with palestinians. Obama doesn't need any sham excuse to be rude and offensive to Jews. Nor has he ever thought to excuse or explain his offensive actions. If he were not an anti-Semite and proud of hat fact he would have sought to explain himself in he past.

I expect that if Iran figures a way to deliver the bomb on target that there will be champagne corks popping in the White House celebrating the incineration of Tel Aviv and several hundred thousand Jews.

P. Bunyan:

There is one thing about the Democrats that every voter must understand. When they say "our allies" they're not talking about America's allies, they're talking about the far-left's allies.

And it's not just Obama- it's most of them. John Kerry was another great example of this. The propaganda machine that masquerades as the news networks tried to pass him off as a war hero-- which was true, except they failed to mention the rest of the story, that Kerry was a war hero for the enemy--communist North Vietnam.

When Obama says things like "strengthening ties with our allies", by "allies" he means those who want America weakened, fundamentally transformed to a third world Marxist state, or even destroyed.

Every voter should know this fact before they vote, but so few do.

Why was I suprised that Adrian is so utterly heart-broken over the death of a terrorist? A death that is still unsolved -- the last report I saw indicated that some of the hit squad fled to IRAN after the killing.

Now, Adrian, tell us how the diabolically clever Mossad managed to use Iran as a safe haven...

A lot of people wanted to see that dirtbag dead, and the world is a better place without him in it. The only real indicator that I've seen linking it to Israel is that it was done so efficiently -- zero collateral damage, no one even knew it had been done until well after the death. Quite frankly, the Arab/Muslim powers that benefited from his long-overdue extermination aren't that good.

Obama just issued a death sentence for an American citizen who has yet to be tried for his alleged crimes, Adrian. Personally, in these circumstances, I have no problem with that. Where's YOUR outrage?

Justrand:

in the 1930s Hitler blamed EVERYTHING on the Jews...sowing the seeds of the "Final Solution". The German people came to believe that anything done to the Jews was justified due to all the terrible things their very existence had subjected the poor German people to.

the so-called "Palestinians" blame EVERYTHING on the Jews. They are told that ANYTHING that is done to the Jews is justified due to all the terrible things their very existence had subjected the poor "Palestinian" people to.

The land area in the Middle East is roughly the size of the entire United States, Alaska included. Israel is the size of Kern County, Calif. The populations are in roughly the same ratio.

But Obama sees the evil JEWS as the problem...just like Jimmy Carter did and does. PATHETIC!

"Tell us how you feel about Obama planning on doing to this American what Israel may or may not have done to this Palestinian, but far, far less tidily."

I imagine you're asking:
"Do I think it's more beneficial to the US to assassinate individuals with a bullet or drop 500 lbs depleted uranium bombs on people as a way of killing them?"

Dropping bombs on people is a way of getting around the fact that assassinating people is illegal by US law. There is probably less collateral damage with assassinating individuals and if you're using that narrow criteria assassinating people is probably better than dropping bombs on them.

"Because killing with missiles from drones is less likely to get blood on your hands; doing it personally is just so icky."

I guess you're trying to imply that I would prefer dropping 500 lbs depleted uranium bombs on people rather than assassinate them because it's "icky." I don't and the constant use of bombs creates a lot of propaganda against us.

Poor Adrian. Still can't articulate why he's so heart-broken that a Palestinian terrorist and arms dealer was helped into making the world a better place by absenting himself from it.

Adrian, it's simple. In this world, there are some people who just need killing. The Palestinian that has your panties in such a knot was one of them. So is the traitor American that Obama has passed a death sentence upon.

I'd prefer if the same hit team that got the Palestinian took out the American, as they have shown that they are remarkably tidy, but if it's a missile that takes him out, that's OK with me. Even if it means some non-combatants also get blown up -- morally, as a target, it's his obligation to keep away from innocents, not hide behind them.

jim m:

"500 lbs depleted uranium bombs "

Adrian, We don't use depleted uranium for bombs. It doesn't have any properties that would make it beneficial. We use it for armor piercing ammunition as its density does give it the ability to penetrate most types of armor.

The "depleted" means that it has been depleted of its radioactive isotope, so it cannot leave any radioactivity on the target.

The issue at hand is Obama ordering the targeted assassination of an American Citizen. At what point do you believe that any given president should be allowed to order the extra judicial death of an American? It's one thing to allow that he may be killed or captured in combat, but another to order his murder.

Take it easy on Adrian, jim. He can't conceive of us actually NOT slamming Obama at every opportunity. He's trying to reconcile what he laughably calls his principles with 1) Obama acting in a way that grossly violates them, and B) our support for Obama doing so.

I'm slamming him for sitting at the feet of that twisted Bigot Jeremiah Wright for 20 years. I'm criticizing him for being a bigot and anti-Semite himself. I don't agree with the idea that he should just sign an executive order for the assassination of an American citizen.

Bill Clinto signed executive orders and fired the travel Office staff. Obama signs them and snuffs out someone's life. Sure I think the target is a scumbag and should be captured or killed. I just don't like the idea of saying that a particular person should be murdered. If it is part of a military action then fine. But to seek a citizen out for assassination is something the Stasi or KGB would do.

Jim Addison:

It seems Jake isn't armed very well, either! I'll pass on his take on the Bible, which he clearly hasn't read, because I don't agree with the interpretation some put on the Book of The Revelation.

Russia, however isn't the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics anymore, though: they have become a full-fledged kleptocracy, a virtual recreation of the communists' conception of what capitalism is like. Many of the same people are in charge, but nowadays they aren't content with a few extra privileges, they are stealing billions. The nuclear arsenal hasn't been verifiably maintained since the fall of the Soviet Empire - they just haven't spent the money.

The once-feared Russian Army can't seem to keep a lid on their own rebel province, and their once-vaunted Navy is deteriorating - dare I say "sinking"? - fast. They are no longer the fearsome military which crushed Afghanistan . . .

I know these truths must hurt leftists deeply, since so many of their hopes over the decades have been invested in Moscow, and I'm sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

Okay, well, maybe I'm not, but I'm trying to be compassionate here, mmmkay?
