Barack Obama Receives Illegal Donations from Palestinians

The evening edition of WorldNetDaily (WND) publicized a report detailing illegal campaign contributions to Barack Obama. WND reported two Palestinian brothers from the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip donated $29,500 to Obama's campaign.

Bob Biersack, a spokesman for the Federal Election Commission (FEC), confirmed to investigative reporters that donations from foreigners are illegal and donations from individuals cannot exceed $ 2,300 for a single election. The $ 29,500 donation from the Palestinians clearly violates the law on both fronts.

Perhaps Barack Obama's announcement that he is a "citizen of the world" puts him above American law. I'm sure Barack's European compatriots would forgive his Palestinian gifts, equally forgiving will be the American media.
So how do a few brothers from the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip donate nearly $30,000 to Obama, and who are these Palestinian brothers? Well, here is what is reported with supporting resources:

On July 31, Atlas Shrugs' blog reports a reader discovered the illegal donations by perusing the FEC site. Once there she uncovered the Middle Eastern donors’ infusion of cash, dating back to October 2007.

Most folks I spoke to didn't think it probable that a couple of Gaza Strip dudes would raise that much cash for an American election. Then again, most of those folks were not aware of Barack Obama's Gaza Campaign Head Quarters:

Blogger, Debbie Schlussel discovered a third Palestinian brother that also donated to Obama. The third brother is Osama Edwan. The other two bros are Homas and Monir Edwan.

At the time of this writing it couldn't be determined if the third brother that Debbie discovered was a fictitious third party created by the illegal donors. It is possible that the Hamas controlled supporters realizing that their contributions were adding up made some lame attempt to make it appear the money was coming from different sources. That would make sense if they had some vague knowledge of American election law. Regardless if Osama the Obama donor is real or contrived, the Middle Eastern brothers by virtue of their foreign status is not allowed to make such contributions. Can someone please inform Mr. World Citizen?

The Gaza brothers electronically sent their donations to Barack Obama. On the forms, they listed their street as "Tal Esaltan," located in "Rafah, GA."

Rafah is NOT a city in Georgia. "GA" in this case stands for GAZA. Come on folks, can it get any more obvious? Perhaps, when you receive illicit donations with the Left hand, you only read the forms with the Left eye and in Obama's case, the more subversive the better.
The Edwans' donations are listed in official FEC filings and other election filing sites, such as CampaignMoney and donordata.org.

A WND investigation tracked down the Edwans, who are brothers living in the Tal Esaltan neighborhood of Rafah, a large refugee camp in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. The Edwans are a large clan that includes top Hamas supporters.

The brothers initially claimed the money they sent Obama were not donations. They ridiculously claimed they purchased Barack Obama T-shirts, which they peddled to their Hamas controlled brethren and fellow Obama supporters. They alleged the T-shirts sold for a profit at $9.00 a piece. When it was brought to their attention that the Obama campaign sells the shirts for 17 bucks and it was virtually impossible to get the goods shipped to their location due to various blockades, a concession was apparent:

"We don't want to cause any damage to Obama's campaign," was Edwan's reply. Mr. Edwan said he wants Obama to be president.

Unfortunately, the implications are more severe than the purchase of campaign T-shirts. I can only hope and pray that the Obama Head Quarters in Gaza fails. One of Obama's co-chairs in the states is the illustrious Jesse Jackson Jr. Who do you think is running the campaign in the Gaza Strip? Louis Farrakhan, or did Barack finally find a place for Reverend Wright?

More evidence of Islamic support for Barrack Hussein.

Muslim communities around New York are holding fundraisers for him. They "know" he will "be the next President," perish the thought.

Their support has implications especially in context of Mr. and Mrs Obama's manifest contempt for America.

Re Gaza strip source of financing - British aid workers stated privately that they were shocked at the absence of effect of aid money, ie conditions in the West Bank and Gaza were still appalling - this was during Arafat's time, but it demonstrated that aid money was not used appropriately - did it all go to the Arafat swiss bank account?

Since that world prefers cash and carry, the bizarre, heavily funded speech in Germany raises a few flags.
McCain is rich in culture, heritage and heroism - an open book, discreet where appropriate (national security) a man who's walked through flames and hell and triumphed. The Michael Phelps of politics!
