Hamas Spokesman: Abbas Lying to Americans

Former spokesman for terror group says Abbas lied to Americans, tells group not to 'harp on everything I tell the media'
Obama and Abbas. One of them is lying and one of them won't listen to the truth.

Obama and Abbas. One of them is lying and one of them won't listen to the truth.

Conventional American wisdom has it that bringing Hamas into a Fatah-led government will be a moderating force on the terror group. Give them something to lose, they say, and they won’t be so fast to give it up.

It appears, unfortunately, that the opposite is actually true. Ihab al-Ghussein, a former spokesman for the Hamas government in Gaza, said Sunday that Abu Mazen has assured Hamas leaders that he has no intention of fulfilling his commitments to the United States. Instead, al-Guyessein said that Abu Mazen’s public statements have been constructed “in order to ‘trick the Americans’”.

According to Palestinian Media Watch al-Ghussein posted a note on his Facebook page poking fun at Palestinians who trust Abbas and the reconciliation. “You know what Mahmoud Abbas says behind closed doors?? He says: ‘Guys, let me [continue] saying what I say to the media. Those words are meant for the Americans and the occupation (i.e., Israel), not for you [Hamas].

“What’s important is what we agree on among ourselves. In other words, when I go out [publicly] and say that the government is my [Abbas] government and it recognizes ‘Israel’ and so on, fine – these words are meant to trick the Americans. But we agree that the government has nothing to do with politics (i.e., foreign relations). The same thing happened in 2006,’ he [Abbas] said: ‘Don’t harp on everything I tell the media, forget about the statements in the media,’” al-Ghussein wrote.

  1. There is no tolerance to the terorist.They must be chased out from the every country.

  2. DAMM THERE ARE THE TERRORISTS..DROP A BOMB….

  3. Uzi Kattan says:

    Two Islamic terrorists posing together.

  4. Gene Strong says:

    Obama is not an american.
    He is a Muslim kenyan imposter who , with the support of liberals, racist blacks and liberal American Jews , has illegally seized the presidency of america.

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    If I read this correctly the terrorist will be taking over the PA? The United States has agreed to work with this group? I thought we do not deal with terrorist organizations? Has Barack Hussein changed long standing United States policy?

  6. David Cohen says:

    Hamas kills innocent civilians, Norman Elliot, including Palestinian civilians who disagree with Policies. The Palestinian leadership takes the money given by Israel, the UN and other Countries and uses it for luxurious lifestyles for themselves, weapons and not to improve the lives of their people.
    Israel has repeatedly given up territory to try for Peace and the Arab Countries and Terror groups continully violate any agreements or treaties. Israel is correct to not take them at their word. The Palestinian Authority refuses to recognize the right of Israel to exist and defend it’s citizens. You can’t expect people who vow your destruction to make Peace.

  7. Sally Penso says:

    Too bad the world is so gullible

  8. Didn't Mr Bush do the same sort of "smoozie" with known terrorist families back in 2001. Least we forget what happened not long after that. Maybe a similar thing "God forbid" will have to happen before Obama changes his mind.

  9. No one in his right mind would believe abbas. And no one in his right mind would believe hubama. So what do we have here? Two men that just don't know how to speak the truth and two men who are stupid enough to think the majority of people believe them

  10. Attila Czako says:

    never sit an arab to the same table !

  11. Ugh duh! Maybe only the Bad Comic on the left doesn’t get all the trucks!

  12. Adam Green says:

    1 bullet 2 kills

  13. The clown knows the spade is going to prick him hard,

  14. THIS PHILISTINE IS A LYER AND THE FATHER OF LIES. I DO NOT THINK HE WILL BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE RADICAL MOSLEMS WHO SEEK TO BURN DOWN CHURCHES AND TRY TO DESTROY ISAREL. I WOULD NOT SIGN ANYTHING WITH HIM. IS THIS THE LAST POPE? I THINK SO. NEXT COMES THE ANTI CHRIST AND FALSE PROPHET!

  15. Alexx Bar says:

    Not only to Americans to everybody since the very beginning :poop:

  16. You can foul some of the people some of the time BUT YOU CAN'T FOUL "ALL" THE PEOPLE "ALL" THE TIME. There are millions of people and whole countries that know what is going on. The GOD of the UNIVERSE will soon take care of it ALL and may HE have MERCY on all of humanity.

  17. Tennille Thomson says:

    You read correctly – we can only hope Obama is doing the same thing secretly to keep Hamas close in a futile attempt I might add to maintain control. Good for him if it works but I have my doubts.

  18. I doubt the Muslims would deal with a female President. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see how negotiations would go then – they would show their true colours publicly.

  19. Has never kept a pledge

  20. Alan Kardon says:

    Tennille Thomson So far he is batting zero. Hope you are correct but I do not have much faith in it happening.

  21. Alan, I agree with your post. Obama seems to do just what ever he wants. We have not had such a President as Obama. I will be glad when his gone.

  22. So is Obama! Nothing New!!!

  23. So is Obama! Nothing New!!!

  24. So is Obama! Nothing New!!!

  25. Where did you get this picture of the “Liars Convention”? Oh, did I miss something? lol

  26. Where did you get this picture of the “Liars Convention”? Oh, did I miss something? lol

  27. Where did you get this picture of the “Liars Convention”? Oh, did I miss something? lol

  28. What’s new about that???

  29. What’s new about that???

  30. What’s new about that???

  31. The Middle East is spiraling out of control. Another failure for Obama – or is it a scandal ? … after all it's happening on his watch not GB …

  32. He reminds me of the dirty trick that they did in the World War. Talked peace and went to war!!! Anyone remember?? History, History sometimes repeats itself.

  33. Of course. Many people have been saying this kind of things about all his policies since he was running for reelection. I hope you didn't vote for him twice, let alone once!

  34. The world is gullible…especially Americans and Europeans. They are so besotted with their screwy theories that they can no longer apprehend reality. Let’s hope at least that Americans are finally waking from their freebies (which cost them a LOT of money), and beginning to see what “O” and his buddies (here and overseas) are up to. He is DESTROYING America and the Constitution that protects are rights, liberties, and freedom.
