Obama's friend Rashid Khalidi raising funds for new Gaza aid ship

Reported in today's Haaretz.  I say, bravo, Rashid - and anyone else who contributes.  (Where do I sign up?) 

Unfortunately, this is going to buy Obama - and his supporters - a world of hurt in the right-wing blogosphere, especially as elections approach.  And to the extent that Obama feels compelled by them to disavow any former association with Prof. Khalidi (a fine historian who's also a major advocate for the Palestinians' cause), he only winds up undercutting even more the promise of his 2009 Cairo speech (which seems like an aeon ago - well, for that matter, do any Muslims around the world really take that speech - or Obama - all that seriously any more?).
