Obama Administration Labels Islamic Jihad Leader as Terrorist

By: JTA

The Obama administration has designated Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s deputy secretary general Ziyad al-Nakhalah as a terrorist, the U.S. State Dept. announced.

The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the Dec. 22 bombing of a bus in Tel Aviv in which quick thinking by two passengers and the bus driver prevented a mass casually disaster.

“Ziyad has repeatedly taken credit for attacks against Israel,” the State Dept. said. “For example, Ziyad took credit for…indiscriminate missile attacks into Israel in 2011, 2009, and 2008.”

U.S. law bans any transactions with designated terrorists and any assets they have that come under the control of any U.S.-based institution are frozen.

    We are getting closer and closer to the mid term elections and the Obama Administration knows that it has marginalized Israel and the Jewish People who believe in Israel. Now they are trying to put their best foot forward towards showing their voters that they care for the State of Israel. Just another example of pure rubbish coming out of the White House.

  3. Wow. I thought there were no more terrorists. How expansive of the administration to actually include some truth in their meme.

  4. Then gives him a job making 6 figures..
