Did you know that convicted fixer Tony http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=5216?
Also known as the http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=3668 that, in prehistoric times, the vile Dr. Yacub genetically engineered Europeans to be a race of human wolves.
Fat Tony, of course, is neither Black nor Muslim—he’s a white Christian immigrant from Aleppo, a famous Syrian rug-trading souk.
The Black Muslims are also notoriously anti-Semitic—but not when it came to their friend Tony Rezko, whose partner in Rezmar, the notorious government-subsidized slumlord racket, was Daniel Mahru, who is Jewish.
But that’s the kind of town Chicago is—diverse, vibrant, tolerant … as long as you’ve got clout and are willing to put aside petty differences and play ball with others with clout to http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=4783.If you want to understand Barack Obama, you have to understand Chicago, the city where he twice chose to make a political career.
Chicago sits at the conjunction of America’s two great watersheds, the Mississippi and the Great Lakes, which made it the transportation hub of the nation by the Civil War. Even today, the convenience of direct flights from O’Hare make the Chicago area central to American corporate life. The ample amount of money that can be extracted from businesses before they finally resolve to flee Chicago means that the city has always been a politician’s paradise.
I’m still amazed that I only found out about Rezko’s decades-long relationship with the Black Muslims last week. It showed up in the obituaries of Jabir Herbert Muhammad, the son of Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad of evil memory, whose followers assassinated his rival Malcolm X in 1966.
Jabir’s funeral was quite a success. Both current Nation of Islam boss Louis Farrakhan and The Champ, Muhammad Ali, were in attendance.
Malcolm had converted the young Cassius Clay to Elijah’s race-baiting Islamic heresy in the early 1960s. In 1964, however, Elijah excommunicated the dangerously charismatic Malcolm and installed his own son, Jabir, as Ali’s business manager. The energetic Rezko, who had arrived in Chicago from Syria in 1974, went to work for Jabir in the 1983 and was soon managing the ex-champ’s business affairs.
Rezko, sadly, was unable to make the memorial service because he’s been busy at Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center since his conviction on 16 counts in June.
And there had been some recent unpleasantness between Jabir and Tony.
