Obama friend Khalidi wrote obit for Black September terrorist

According to Fox News, in 1991 Khalidi wrote an obituary for Salah Khalaf, a founding member of the terrorist Black September organization which, among other things, carried out the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics. Khalaf was known as Israel's most-wanted terrorist. Fox News reports that in the obituary Khalidi praised Khalaf and said he would be "sorely missed by the Palestinian people to whom he devoted his life."
He was, no doubt, missed by those who approve of terrorist mass murders. It is fair to say that Khalidi, a representative of the PLO, was among that number.

It was shortly after this that Obama and Khalidi became friends and, as Obama has said, Khalidi
"offered constant reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases."
[W]hat sort of a person would consider [Khalidi] to be not just a profound thinker but a moral compass? That is to say: what sort of a person is Barack Obama?
I know.


A slim sliver of circumstantial evidence of Khalidi's terrorist sympathies:
A children's dance troupe performed at the Khalidi farewell at which Obama spoke. Debbie Schleusel reports she obseverved, at another performance of this children's dance troupe in 2004, the child dancers pull out swords and simulate beheadings.
