Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese journalist Hassan Hamadah, which aired on Al-Jadid/New TV on November 6, 2008.
Hassan Hamadah: We should not be surprised by [Obama's] team of advisors. His advisors will be from among the extremist Zionists. A few hours ago, there was an announcement about the appointment of Mr. Rahm Emanuel as the chief-of-staff of the White House, which is, in fact, the prime minister of the administration, the prime minister of the U.S. president. The chief-of-staff is the center of everything in the White House. Mr. Rahm Emmanuel is an officer in the Israeli Mossad, and he served in the Israeli army. His father... Allow me...
Interviewer: That was the first thing Obama did after he was elected.
Hamadah: Exactly. But please let me clarify something really important. The father of Mr. Rahm Emanuel was a member of the terrorist Zionist Lehi organization, the most extremist of all the Zionist terrorist movements. Along with Yitzhak Shamir and Israel Eldad, he was a member of the squad which ambushed the international envoy, Count Folke Bernadotte, and killed him, in 1948. The sole reason was that Bernadotte wanted to issue a resolution that would bring back the Palestinians who had been driven out during the war. This resolution was eventually issued after the death of Bernadotte, and it is known as Resolution 194. This is very important. If the chief-of-staff is an officer in the Israeli Mossad, we can figure out what needs to be understood.
