Chicago, IL - Obama Supporters New 'Meshigas' Change Their Own Names To Hussein

Chicago, IL - A growing band of supporters of Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, are expressing solidarity with him by informally adopting his middle name.


The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.

Some Obama supporters say they were moved to action because of what their own friends, neighbors and relatives were saying about their candidate. Mark Elrod, a political science professor at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., is organizing students and friends to declare their Husseinhood on Facebook on Aug. 4, Mr. Obama’s birthday.

I am not sure what your question about Yole is, yoel was a Rebbe, Obama is a black Muslim jew hater, just becuase he talks the talk, dosent mean anything.
he defiantly dosent walk the walk, talk is cheap, he will say anything just to get in and its sad that people listen to his trash, and that jew would add Hussain to their name,insane is more like it.

Just like Iran had (and still has) its Kho-maniacs, the U.S. has its Huss-aniacs.

Is this REALLY someone we can see as the President of our great nation!!!!

Below are a few lines from Obama's books; In his words!

These statements indicate conflicts that most children never have to face. This is a man with issues that bear on his personality, his decisions and his world view.

From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspec t that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'

From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'

From Dreams of My Father: 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'

From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'

From Dreams of My Father: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'

But the most telling is from his book:

From Audacity of Hope: 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'

Just the fact that he MIGHT win- this will cause there to be a very small window of opportunity for Israel to pre-emptively attack Iran
, that is to say while there still is a "friendly" ( or friendlier) White House. Israel recognizes that in general they have always faired better during American Republican regimes, and this time around the difference in the candidate's views on the middle east (regardless of speeches that sound great at AAIPAC) are more strikingly different than ever.

How ironic. We spend billions to depose one Hussein, and then we might actually elect another one to our own whitehouse. The question is indeed:
"Whose sane"?

This is a little like the first gulf war when the Israelis named their kids nachman after broadcaster nachman shai. The Arabs named their kids Hussein after Saddam, and the Falashas named their kids Schwartkopf after the general.

Some Republicans have been pretty bad for Israel. Are you old enough to remember Eisenhower openly supporting Egypt in the Suez War in 1956? And can anyone forget James Baker (today a big McCain supporter) in 1991-1992 during the administration of the first Bush?

I can't find much difference between Obama's and McCain's positions. Both support Land for Peace and a Palestinian State.
