Sixty Dollars

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on April 24, 2008

Neal Boortz was discussing a man who raises funds for Barack Obama today.
The man in question is Hatem El-Hady. He was involved with an organization called “Kindhearts“. Mr. El-Hady says his group provides assistance to those in need. The U.S. Government says he is a fund raiser for terrorism, and shut down the group.
Mr. El-Hady has a “dedicated page on Barack Obama’s official website”. I clicked on the link to this page, and saw where Mr. El-Hady has raised $60 for the campaign.
Sixty Dollars.
A few thoughts are in order:
1- Mr. Boortz is quick to mock government when it involves education or the environment. However, when it suits his needs, he believes what they say without question.
A regular feature on his show is the “Government Outrage of the Day”. To this reporter, the biggest outrage in recent memory is the deployment of 160k troops eight time zones away. This is destroying our economy and has rendered us more vulnerable to terrorism.
2- Those who condemn Islamic Terrorism seldom make the distinction between Sunni and Shiite. This division is real and important. Al Queda is Sunni, and considers Shia to be more of an enemy than the United States.
Could it be that a Shia rival of Kindhearts ratted them out as terrorists?
3- In the wake of 9-11, the Government went into full terror hunt mode. Is it possible that legitimate charities were swept into this dragnet?
4- To be totally fair, it is possible that the Government is telling the truth and that Mr. El-Hady is a terrible person. In this case Mr. Obama should return the Sixty Dollars.
