(CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama says in an interview scheduled to air on TV Friday that he would have left his church if his pastor had not retired and had not acknowledged making comments that "deeply offended people."
Obama talked about the dispute as it continued to brew over some of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's sermons and comments, which many viewed as anti-American and racist toward whites.
Bulletins from Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ in 2007 include comments -- reprinted from other sources -- that maintain South Africa and Israel worked on "an ethnic bomb that kills blacks and Arabs." They also quote a historian who said that "what the Zionist Jews did to the Palestinians is worse than what the Nazis did to the Jews."
The articles appeared in a church bulletin section called the "Pastor's Page," and include one that originally ran in The Los Angeles Times. That article was written by a senior official with Hamas, which the U.S. government considers a terrorist organization.
Obama denounced the articles this week, telling the Jerusalem Post that the church was "outrageously wrong" in reprinting the pieces.
Get this, now. He doesn't say that what Jeremiah Wright did, allowed or said was incorrect, prejudiced, racist, xenophobic, what he says is that Jeremiah Wright was "outrageously wrong" in reprinting the pieces.
Do YOU get it?
Hamas and an Arab-American activist have written pieces that have shown up on the "Pastor's Page" of the TUCC website. THIS leads me to believe that Barack H Obama is very aware that he's told a falsehood about qualifying in the USofA to call himself an "African-American" and that he knows right well that his heritage is "ARAB-American."
Barack H Obama used TUCC because it was or is considered "protestant" as a church but still allowed him to remain true to his identity as a Muslim Arab American.
My money's on Hillary R Clinton getting the nomination from the DNC. What do you think?
