UPDATED-Fred Thompson Hires Spencer Abraham - Red Flags Fly as the FredHeads are Silent?
I want to update the original post with a link I received in the comments.
Israel Jewish New writes
But Abraham, who is a Christian of Lebanese descent, has also carved out an image of himself as a facilitator and supporter of anti-US and anti-Israel Islamic fundamentalism.
During his one term in the Senate, Spencer was the driving force behind a bill that granted more than $250 million in US taxpayers' money to Hizballah-controlled southern Lebanon. Nearly every penny went into the terror group's pocket.
His next move was to exhort American Muslim Association (AMA) director Agha Saeed as a positive influence on the US political scene. That despite the fact that the AMA had recently sponsored events that incited violence against the Jews and upheld Hizballah and Hamas as models for Muslims everywhere.
In 2000, just months before his electoral defeat and the end of his short legislative career, Spencer was one of only two senators who refused to sign an open letter condemning escalating terrorist attacks by Yasser Arafat's PLO against Israeli civilians.
It was previously reported that Thompson was planning to visit Israel in the coming months in order to gain more perspective on the Middle East peace process. That visit, if it still happens, is expected to take on a whole different tone with Spencer Abraham in charge of Thompson's schedule.(READ IT ALL)
What is Fred thinking?
