Nothing says “rebel with a cause” like a hate scarf. Barack Obama’s best man brother, who was the best man at his wedding, took a picture of himself wearing Hamas regalia with a threatening message printed on it then posted it to his Barack H. Obama Foundation website.
Malik Obama is Barack Obama’s half-brother, but he is close enough to the president to have been the best man at Barack and Michelle’s wedding. He has also visited the White House, and is president of the Barack H. Obama Foundation.
It’s at the BHO Foundation website that Malik Obama has posted this curious photo. The Barack H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked to IRS tax-exempt status at the same time that the IRS was abusing numerous Tea Party and conservative groups. While those groups’ tax-exempt applications were taking two years and mountains of paperwork and invasive queries about their memberships and activities, the Barack H. Obama Foundation won its status in just 30 days. That status was back-dated 38 months, which is against the law.
The scarf is a Hamas scarf. Hamas is a designated terrorist group according to the US State Department. It has held that status since 1997. The text on the scarf that the president’s brother is wearing in the 2010 photo reads, “‘Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING!’” It also includes a map of Palestine that reads “From the river to the sea!”
How delightful that Malik Obama is confident enough to wear his hate on his sleeve…er apparel. I guess at least not hiding his dislike of Israel, which shows he’s got more integrity than Barack.
