Though often quoted as the head of "Israel for Obama", on the Obama site Israel for Obama is a rather dubious Messianic Black Hebrew group whose leader Yeshaya Amariel is busy passing himself off as an American Jew who supports Obama, while waiting for the apocalypse and one of whose members may have been involved in violent attacks on Jews in Arad.
"Israelis for Obama", which is the group getting the press, is really headed by Tony Jassen. Tony Jassen may have created "Israelis for Obama" but neither he nor the rest of the group, barring one actual Israeli, can write in Hebrew.
This is the pathetic recitation of how Jassen managed to get Altman-Schevitz quoted in media around the world.
Today we meet at the Kind David Hotel, and surprisingly were able to make it inside. Barack was meeting with Israeli opposition leader and head of the Likud Benyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu. We hung around the lobby making our prescence known to the media waiting by passing out flyers explaining who we are (thanks to Shahar for helping with the Hebrew translation and design!) and being interviewed by some as well (RTVi- Russian TV, Army Radio, Reuters, AP).
Nothing says Genuine Israeli like not being able to write in Hebrew and needing help to translate simple flyers and slogans. At least Tony Jassen and the gang at "Israelis for Obama" are slightly ahead of Yeshaya Amariel at "Israel for Obama" who is not actually Jewish and doesn't seem to like Jews all that much. But you have to wonder why this campaign of support couldn't hunt down Israelis. At this point it should be renamed "Black Hebrew and Subliterate Anglos Hanging Around Israel for Obama".
Meanwhile aside from this "Israelis for Obama" has little content except to repost Yeshaya's material, including his announcement that his father's Black Messianic Church has endorsed Obama. Of course he calls the place "Tabernacle Congregation of Prayer Yeshiva in Israel" which just goes to show that Jassen has no monopoly on Ivrit illiteracy.
But it's only fair that with a shortage of actual Israelis to campaign for Obama, there should also be a shortage of actual Jewish synagogues in Israel to endorse Obama. At this point Obama would be better off clapping a Kippah on Reverend Wright's head and renaming Trinity, "The Cobernacle Tangregation of Yeshiavism in Chicago".
But Israel for Obama or Israelis for Obama or Frauds for Obama gets even better than this... its membership list is headed by Aly Baba Faye, a dubious character, who has been written up before and appears to be a non-Jewish Somali living in Italy who is not a US citizen and is heavily involved in promoting Obama.
Then there's Bradford "Hussein" Lyau, seemingly an Asian fellow from New Mexico. He's followed by Citoyen De Monde, who lives in Japan. At this point you might reasonably wonder why Obama can't hardly find any Americans who support him, let alone Israelis.
Going down the membership list of Israelis for Obama, I couldn't seem to actually find any Israelis living in Israel who support Obama besides Shahar Golan, their token Israeli who translates things into Hebrew and makes posters for them. I did find Jamella from Brooklyn, who isn't Israeli or Jewish. There's Jon Car Harris, a black man/lady from Wyoming. Then there's the Reverend Bry, a Presbyterian minsiter from Virginia. No he isn't Jewish or Israeli either.
I hesitate to say how much of the Israelis for Obama fraud is aimed at Jews and how much of it is simply the commonplace social networking inflation that characterized the Ron Paul campaign and now characterizes the Obama campaign. Phony friends lists and large numbers of people joining groups that have no connection to to make it seem as if these groups are influential or relevant. Right now Israelis for Obama is giving Jews for Ron Paul a run for its money in the lack of credibility department. And that is a genuine achievement when you consider that the head of Jews for Ron Paul was a gay Wiccan minister who stole money from people and pretended briefly to be Native American.
For those truly bored, other highlights of Israelis who support Obama from the group include, Abdoulaye Dieng ,Standing Rock Sioux Nation and Ehuzu Hussein who truly exemplifies Barack Hussein's message of being "All Things to All People".
Ehuzu Hussein is a member of African Americans for Barack Obama
1,000 Black Men for Obama , 30 something women for Obama , A Rosary A Day for Barack Obama , Gay, Lesbian, BiSexual Committee for Barack Obama ,Chicago Jews for Obama , Church Of God In Christ For Obama , Cuban Americans for Obama , Delaware United Auto Workers for Obama , Disabled Oregonians for Barack Obama , Dogs for Obama! , Native Americans for Obama, Gay Republicans for OBAMA , Irish Catholics for Obama , New York Asian Americans for Obama, Iowa Latinos for Change and of course Jews for Obama.
Hussein, Ehuzu rather than Barack, exemplifies the culture of fraud on Obama's blogs, on Digg and YouTube and elsewhere that creates the image of widespread support, often by foreigners like Aly and Hussein, for Obama.
Obama's campaign is a scam and its subsets like "Israelis for Obama" or "Ukranians for Obama" or "Arabs from Abroad Promoting Obama" are scams too, cashing in on identity politics and fake user names with groups that may really have a small handful of members to promote their candidate.
Next time you encounter someone online who claims to be a Disabled Gay Asian-American Autoworker for Obama, keep in mind you're probably just talking to Ehuzu Hussein. And when you run into Israelis for Obama, you're dealing with people who can't even write in Hebrew without help.
How do you spell scam? Yes we can.
