Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

In March 2005, Yona Baumel, Zachary’s father, who died in 2009, told this reporter that sources he had cultivated in Syria told him they visited his son that year at a Syrian military installation just north of the border with Iraq. Baumel was also given a book from a confidante of a family in Syria that contains coded messages that Baumel says could have been written only by his son.

Yona Baumel in 2005 showed this reporter pages from the book, a 1999 novel titled The Map of Love. The lettering has been stained after extensive Israeli forensics testing, but a series of marks are visible under the letters “BAZMUTACUMKCEL” – ZACK BAUMEL MTUC.

The MTUC, Yona had explained, came from an old family joke that outsiders would not be in a position to know. “It had to have been written by Zack,” said Baumel. “It refers to an old joke he was told from a long time ago when his mother, whose maiden name was Miriam Turetsky or MT, was a kid. The other children would point at her head and say ‘it’s empty you see,’ or MTUC.”

Additionally, phrases throughout the book were underlined or circled, including “A child forsaken,” “I have hope” and “help me.”

  1. Amazing. I told Klein myself that I had no knowledge of Obama being a member of the New Party, despite meeting with him and supporting his race, or 'signing a contract', or that the New Party was 'socialist' (it was not) or that it was 'far left' (the far left in Chicago all opposed the NP as too reformist for them). But yet he cites my name to back up all these claims. I suggest readers keep this in mind about everything else about which he has an axe to grind.

    The New Party’s stated objectives were: “full employment, a shorter work week, and GUARANTEED MINIMUM INCOME FOR ALL ADULTS ; a universal ‘social wage’ to include such basic benefits as health care, child care, vacation time, and lifelong access to education and training; a systematic phase-in of comparable worth and like programs to ensure gender equity.”

    Wow! Everything but a free pony.

    To paraphrase Bastiat, socialism is that great fiction by which everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else!

  3. Aaron Klein Responds:

    Similar to a tactic popularized by his ideological comrades at the controversial Media Matters for America, Carl Davidson here is denying statements that were never actually attributed to him in the first place.
    In my column above, I reported on evidence from the New Party's own literature listing President Obama as a member. I also reported that Stanley Kurtz at the National Review Online dug up Obama's signed contract with the New Party.

    As anyone can read, the only mention of Davidson in my entire column was the following factual statement: "This reporter also conducted an exclusive interview with Marxist activist Carl Davidson, a founder of the New Party, who recounted Obama’s participation with the party."

    No where in my column did I cite Davidson's name to back up any of the information he misleadingly mentions in his posting. I only wrote that Davidson recounted, as a New Party founder, Obama's participation with the party.

    My column is a shorter version of a longer article of mine in which I posted Davidson's full quotes reminiscing on Obama's participation. Unfortunately due to space limitations (I must squeeze three Quick Takes into 900 words) I was not able to include Davidson's full quotes, although the paraphrase was accurate.

    For trivia purposes, here is what Davidson told me:

    “A subcommittee met with (Obama) to interview him to see if his stand on the living wage and similar reforms was the same as ours. e determined that our views on these overlapped, and we could endorse his campaign in the Democratic Party,” Davidson said.
    Davidson said that to his knowledge Obama was not a member of the New Party “in any practical way” – using qualifying language.
    Asked whether Obama signed the New Party contract, Davidson replied there was “no need for him to do so” – information now contradicted by Kurtz's discovery.
    “At the end of our session with him, we simply affirmed there was no need to do so, because on all the key points, the stand of his campaign and the New Party reform planks were practically the same,” Davidson said.

  4. But to be fair, you would state what I actually said, that the party was not socialist and that we exempted Obama from signing any contract at the meeting I was at. But that didn't fit your aim. I'll leave it to your readers to evaluate your 'spin.'
