Though I try not to make this blog political, I thought this was an interesting letter found on the Monsey Shuls yahoo group.

This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since then. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to the other. I must admit this drives my husband crazy, but I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with. About six months ago, I started wondering 'where did the money come from for Obama?' I have four daughters that went to college, we were middle class and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans.
I started looking into Obama's life.
Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental. He tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time. Even though he had a brilliant mind, he admittedly did not apply himself to his studies. 'Barry' (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both of Pakistan. During the summer of 1981, after his second year of college, he made his 'around the world' trip. He stopped to see his mother in Indonesia, next he went to Hyderabad in India, spent three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africa to visit his father's family. My question is 'where did he get the money?' Neither I nor any of my children would have had the money for a trip like this when they were in college. When he returned to the states he began attending Columbia University in New York. At this time he wants everyone to call him Barack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap to say the least! Where did he get the money for tuition? Student loans? I couldn't find that information. After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer earning $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He already lived there.
By 'chance' he met Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, born in Aleppo, Syria, a real estate developer in Chicago. Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year, he also was named Entrepreneur of the Decade by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association. Approximately two years after meeting Rezko, Obama enters Harvard Law School. Again the question where does he get the money? More student loans? After law school he moves back to Chicago Rezko offers him a job which he turns down and then accepts a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland. Guess what - this law firm represents Rezar which is owned by Tony Rezko. Rezko is one of the first major financial contributors when Obama runs for political office in Chicago In 2003 Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama. Chicago Tribune reporter, David Mendelland, claims this was instrumental in providing Obama with 'seed money' for his U S Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in the Kenwood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those student loans - where did he get the money? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining property, an empty lot, for the full asking price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi born billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's home was purchased. Obama has met Nadhmi Auchi many time with Rezko.
Now we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett was Michele Obama's boss and is currently Barack's chief advisor. He has stated that he makes no major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this - Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here or am I crazy?
On May 10, 2008 the Times reported Robert Malley one of Obama's advisors was 'sacked' after the press reported he was having regular contact with 'Hamas', which controls Gaza and is connected politically with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will 'Take care of things'.
Oh and by the way, remember the college roommates that were from Pakistan? They are in charge of all 'small' Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country or could it be from the Middle East?
This final bit of news - On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on 'This Week with George Stephanapoulas'. Obama on talking about his religion said, 'My Muslim faith'. When questioned he replied, 'I made a mistake.'. Some mistake!
All of the above information I got on-line. If you would like to check it these were my source: Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times, May 10, 2008.
Now the BIG question - if I found all this information on my own, WHY HAVEN'T ALL OUR INTELLIGENT MEMBERS OF THE PRESS BEEN REPORTING THIS?
A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear -'Beware of the enemy from within!'
