Obama Desecrates Holiest Site In Judaism (BUMPED & UPDATED)

No, not by this.




Yeah, that's right -- campaign banners at the Wailing Wall. Apparently the acolytes of the Obamessiah seem to believe that this remnant of the sacred precincts of the Temple is an appropriate place to actively campaign for President. I don't fault him for visiting the site -- I do not believe anyone should visit Jerusalem without taking a moment to visit the sacred site and offer prayers to the Most High. But this constituted a desecration. And since it was a "surprise visit" to the site, the banners could only have happened with the active complicity of Obama campaign officials.

Quite frankly, it reminds me of this from 1 Maccabees:

And he commanded the holy places to be profaned, and the holy people of Israel. -- 1 Maccabees 1:49


On the fifteenth day of the month Casleu, in the hundred and forty-fifth year, king Antiochus set up the abominable idol of desolation upon the altar of God... -- 1 Maccabees 1:57

Apparently some of those gathered there for prayer rather than a campaign event had a few choice words for the candidate who would trump God in this holy place.

Orthodox men interrupted their morning prayers to catch a glimpse of the Illinois senator, reaching out to shake his hand as he passed them by. But not all were taken by the Democrat. One yelled out: “Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!” before Mr. Obama was whisked away to his waiting plane.

There seems to be a lot of indication that Israelis are not happy with Obama -- especially since "Israelis for Obama" has only six members in Israel (four of whom apparently turned out to hold banners for his campaign).

I hope the Swiss Guards have their halberds ready if Obama tries to visit the Vatican -- he'll be trying o put his logo on the dome of St. Peter's Basilica!

UPDATE -- 7/29/2008: I intentionally did not cover the content of Obama's prayer when it was reported by one of Israel's largest news organizations. After all, removing it from the Wall was wrong, and I believed that any reporting on my part would only further the wrong done to Obama by that newspaper.

Now, however, it appears that Obama and his campaign were parties to a second desecration of the Western Wall -- by actively cooperating with and encouraging the media outlet in question to retrieve the paper with the prayer on it from the Wall for publication.

"Obama's note was published in Maariv and other international publications following his authorization to make the content of the note public. Obama submitted a copy of the note to media outlets when he left his hotel in Jerusalem. Moreover, since he is not Jewish, there is no violation of privacy as there would be for a Jewish person who places a note in the wall."

While that last sentence is somewhat inflammatory (shades of Jerry Falwell's "I do not believe that God answers the prayer of any unredeemed Gentile or Jew.”), it is the rest of the statement that is really big news. That Obama and his campaign were actively complicit in violating the sanctity and privacy of the prayers offered at the Wall is simply an outrage -- but simply one more on which he will continue to get a pass from his adoring acolytes in the Media.

However, I believe that a previous claimant to the title of Messiah may have had something to say about such behavior.

And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. -- Matthew 6:5

Maybe Barack Obama should have attended a church where they spent more time on God's Word than on calling for God to damn America.

UPDATE 2 -- 7/29/2008: Or perhaps they didn't quite approve the note snatching. But Maariv has always claimed that the text of the prayer was released to them by the Obama camp -- which makes the quote from the Gospel of Matthew above still quite fitting.

I'm sure the G-D less progressive socialist he is surrounded by see nothing wrong with such a display of arrogance.

The more we learn about Obama the more we loathe him. He is despicable.
