Chicagoan Ali Abunimah is a pro-Palestinian activist who was an associate of President Obama’s in the 1990s.

The Hamas jihad group follows four pro-Palestinian blogs, including Electronic Intidadah. That blog was co-founded by Chicagoan Ali Abunimah, a pro-Palestinian activist who was an associate of President Obama’s in the 1990s. 

In the 1990′s, Obama was a speaker at events in Chicago’s large Palestinian immigrant community to raise funds for U.N. camps for Palestinian refugees. Abunimah recalls introducing Obama at one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for the Deheisha Palestinian camp in the West Bank.

“I knew Barack Obama for many years as my state senator – when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time,” stated Abuminah during an interview in 2008 with Democracy Now!, a nationally syndicated radio and television political program.

“I remember personally introducing [Obama] onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. And that’s just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation,” Abunimah said.
