Obama Wants US Support for Hamas. Seeks Change in Law.


I guess Obama thinks that making a deal with the devil will save mideast “peace”?

This is just plain stupid.

I’m starting to suspect that Obama is less interested in diplomatic discussion with these regimes and more interested in bolstering the arabs against Israel. I guess his “advisors,” Mitchell and Carter, have finally succeeded in convincing a president that, if Israel just disappears, there will be peace.

I guess Obama just isn’t sure how to deal with that one sticky issue: Jews. Hello? Mr. Obama? We are still here, we are still Jewish, and we still support Israel. Didn’t you get the memo?

Wait? You are unconvinced that Obama is against Israel? Well, let’s just do a tally, shall we?

OK, including this story:

  • Obama wants to change the law to financially support Hamas.
  • Obama approved an arms sale from Turkey to Lebanon.
  • Obama has made overtures to Hugo Chavez.
  • Obama has made overtures to Mamud Ahmadinejad.
  • Obama has promised the arabs a “palestinian” state.
  • Obama has blocked Israel from acting against Iranian Nukes.
  • Obama has refused to act against Iranian Nukes.
  • Obama has bowed to the Saudi King.
  • Obama admitted he is a Muslim.

I’ve probably left a few things out, but heck, that’s a dang good start for the destruction of Israel, don’t you think? I guess all those Jewish Obama supporters got exactly what they wanted: an arab president who hates Israel.

The question is: Next time, will those voters put Jerusalem above their highest desire?

If they do, we get rid of Obama’s undue influence in the midterm election and he loses the presidency in 2012.

If they don’t, he continues to destroy Israel and the US with the avid support of liberal Jews.

Obama administration asks Congress to change US law so as to enable allocation of funds to Palestinian unity government that includes terror organization. Move sparks outrage among Israel supporters

Published: 04.27.09, 09:20 / Israel News

The Obama administration is laying the groundwork for dialogue with a Palestinian unity government that includes Hamas, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.

According to the LA Times, the administration has asked Congress to amend US law so as to enable continued financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority even if Hamas becomes part of a future unity government.

US law requires the PA to adhere to three conditions in order to be eligible for aid: Recognizing Israel, renouncing violence and accepting past agreements. Hamas, as an organization, does not meet these conditions.

According to the proposed change, if the rival Palestinian factions reach a power-sharing agreement, the US would like to provide aid as long as the government members backed by Hamas meet the administration's criteria.

This new initiative, reported the LA Times, signals a break from the policy of the Bush administration, which opposed a unity government.

The move has already sparked anger among Israel supporters in Congress. Rep. Mark Steven Kirk told Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at a House hearing last week that the administration's proposal is akin to agreeing to support a government that "only has a few Nazis in it."

Clinton, who is seeking support for the move that would enable the transfer of $840 million in aid funds to the Palestinians, assured Congress that no assistance would be given to Hamas or an entity controlled by Hamas.

She added that the US will not recognize a Palestinian unity government that does not meet the Quartet's criteria.
