Oprah Winfrey Supports Terrorists

Here is an interesting column by Joseph Aaron in the Chicago Jewish News. Mr. Aaron finds Oprah petty, defensive, self-absorbed, lacking a sense of humor, and a know-it-all. None of that is cause for concern. That's basic behavior of the rich pampered TV and movie star. Near the end of the article though, he describes an article that ran recently in her magazine, O. And that is a cause for concern.
In the current issue of her magazine, Oprah has a story that truly shows how delusional she is.

It's the story of Yusra Abdu, an 18- year-old Palestinian. "A wonderfully frivolous teenager," "a happy girl with an optimistic smile."

Oh, by the way, Yusra Abdu wanted to be a suicide bomber.

According to the article in Oprah, she was a girl with "velvety skin" who did it all for love. And, of course, because the Jews made her do it.

Indeed, the article's headline is "Love and Terror," and the introductory paragraph refers to Yusra as "one of the youngest casualties of an unending conflict."

Catch that word "casualty?" Yes, according to Oprah, this young woman, who the article says has an "overfull closet of clothes, whose doors are layered with posters of handsome Arab stars," is a casualty. Why? Because she's now serving a 15-month sentence in an Israeli jail. Why? Because she was planning to murder Jews, not that the article would ever use the word murder.

Only in the strange world of the Palestinians, and evidently Oprah, is someone who is setting out to kill innocent people, actually the victim in the whole thing.

That she evidently fell in love with Hani Akad, the top man in the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine in the city of Nablus, as they were planning her mission, makes her all the more the victim, according to Oprah. Oh by the way, Akad, an explosions expert responsible for many suicide bombings and on Israel's most wanted list of terrorists, is referred to by Oprah as a "charismatic young rebel."

And that indeed is the tone of the entire article with every Israeli military operation "bloody" and every Palestinian a victim.
There's more and it's equally as sickening. Read the whole article. You get a better picture of Oprah, the clueless dope.

For more sickening moral ambiguity, courtesy of Oprah, read this disgusting piece. If she were truly concerned, she would be reaching out to Israeli girls who have been left orphaned or maimed thanks to murderers like Yusra Abdu and Hani Akad, whom she romanticizes.
