4. More on Obama's former Chief of Staff and his ties to Israel

"Emanuel took part in a two-week civilian volunteer holiday, known as the Sar-El, where, as a civilian volunteer, he assisted the Israel Defense Forces during the 1991 Gulf War, helping to repair truck brakes in one of Israel's northern bases."

(From Wikipedia) - that is the sum total of the devious connection Mondoweiss is trying to suggest. For those who may not recall, during the 1991 Gulf War, Bush prevailed on Israel to not do anything, even as Saddam Hussein without provocation attacked Israeli cities with missiles in hopes that this would get the Muslim world on his side.

The OP: Just any chance to make you know who look bad. Mondoweiss.
