US: Hamas Okay, Homes for Jews No Good

Washington's recognition of Hamas gov't only latest example that president doesn't understand nature of Islamists.
U.S. President Barack Obama

Other examples abound. On Obama’s watch, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has purged both the military and the judiciary. Likewise, Turkey’s oppression of journalists has continued unabated. In Syria, the president has looked on helplessly as Bashar al-Assad has gassed civilians and rebel groups, and as al-Qaeda-linked groups have infiltrated the country to create a solid base of operations if and when Assad is eventually ousted. In Afghanistan, Taliban groups are re-asserting their primacy in many areas of the country.

Failure to identify democrats

Perhaps worst of all has been the administrations failure to identify potential democratic elements in most or all of these countries, and to support them. With strong economic interests in all the country’s mentioned above (with the possible exception of Afghanistan) the United States maintains the ability to use economic and diplomatic pressure to encourage democracy, human rights and personal liberty. Having failed to do so, one can only conclude that the president simply fails to understand both the nature of radical regimes and the nature of Muslim complaints about the United States.

All of which leads directly back to Washington’s recognition of the Palestinian unity government. Yet again, the Obama administration has thrown its support behind an Arab government known for corruption, violence and suppression of minority opposition rights. Once again, the US administration appears to given in to a strong inferiority complex. Once again, American officials have ignored the murderous, illiberal program of a radical Islamic movement to plead for a little recognition. “Please, Mr Haniyeh. We recognise your “right” to oppress your countrymen; would you mind very much not killing us now?”

Or, in the words of one American diplomat shortly after Obama’s election, “everybody loves the new tenor of American foreign policy. But let’s see what happens when the world realises that American interests haven’t changed.”

But it is hard to demand the world recognize America’s policy interests in the Middle East when it seems that Obama himself lacks a clear understanding of what those interests are.

  1. What is wrong now? He can’t even touch base with his Muslim roots either? What’s next?

  2. Ali Shah says:

    Silly criticise.

  3. WHAT A TERRORIST YOU ALL VOTED FOR….
    TRADOR TRADOR…
    GOD BLESS ISRAEL

  4. Well, we all know what this administration is all about now as it openly supports the islamists in Israel, Afghanistan, Iran, Qutar, et al. Anyone who now supports this administration, including the reprehensible Harry Reid, is an open supporter of the racist islamist murderers

  5. Now that M OBAMA does not need the Jew vote in Election he his showing his true face…..it is a shame. But in Israel we don’t care about M Obama position we do what we want in our sovereign country?

  6. Will he ever be gone……I think not!

  7. Obama will spend time in pit for this and other anti American and Jewish ideas.

  8. Gail Sados says:

    For sure can’t help but wonder where his interests lie esp after release of Taliban terrorists

  9. Yishav Levi Kohen Zaza says:

    EVIL!

  10. Zak Klein says:

    Screw you Obama

  11. Gavin Knight says:

    Obama will burn in hell with Mohammed the pedophile if he dont get saved

  12. Yay! Keep moving forward – do your own thing – there are countries that support you.

  13. Yechiel Baum says:

    Obama does understand the islamists since he comes from them.
    Obama turned the white house into the black house.

  14. Tommy-Wanda Robbins says:

    Obama and his wife are pure raciest. Tommy.

  15. Gil Gilman says:

    It is extremely difficult for me to believe the premise of this article, but no the contents. President Obama has been a divisive figure since he first entered office, not all of which can be blamed on the Tea Party. They have been hugely silent of late, actually ever since the embarrassment of their failed agenda. No the fault lies squarely on his intentions, unvarying from the first moment in office, and before.

  16. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    It is elementary the Amateur hasn’t the slightest idea of practical policy or how to deal with ideologies with a sinister core. Well, he can make speeches but not very well-funded. I doubt Mr. Amateur has any qualifications whatsoever, politically speaking. Fund-raiser in Chicago and third grade social interrogator in poor urban quarters don’t make him suitable as POTUS.

  17. America, Britain, Middle East, China, Bangladesh all are traitors, they are equal to evil.

  18. Bobby Harris says:

    none of them are qualified neither is Obama he is not qualified either he is a dictator of America now as it is already he is bowing to muslims and opening his door to them I think is a violation to America and we need to do something about it to put a stop to it before it worsens

  19. Benjamin Fox says:

    Israel obozo's words should tell you where his heart is, never trust him.

  20. Moshe Milich says:

    Just in from the Newsroom…Israel will freeze construction in Judea, and Samaria soon after the US freezes all construction in the state of Texas, and reaches a final agreement to return Texas to Mexico. Opps it’s not even the same..Judea, and Samaria are part of Israel, Texas belongs to Mexico!

  21. By the time he's gone, it may be too late. I feel bad for the next Pres…….unless of course it's a democrat. In that case, he/she deserves to clean up the mess Obama made. However, I'm sure another democrat will probably make more messes. OMg………there's no end to this crap!!!

  22. Randy – while you hit the nail squarely on it's head you also might have violated the 'ethics' of this web site BUT it doesn't matter, I think, because you not only hit that nail but you are not afraid to speak truth to power ! Actually it is worse than you wrote… because this President is laying the ground-work for armed dissent in the streets of the United States and that is exactly what he wants. Look who raised him please.

  23. We now have an openly pro Hamas,Anti Israel leader. Obama plans to use your tax money to provide aid to the new united Paestinian party. It includes as a full participoant ,HAMSAS,a violent,hate mongering,terrorist organization bent on the destruction of Israel and genocide of the Jewish people. It has fired thousands of rockets at civilian populations and wants to liquidate all Jews between the Jordan river and the Mediteranian sea, It is an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood of which Mr Obama has always been an ardent supporter.Next time you pay your income tax,think of where it goes. He incidentally has worked hard to damage Israel while giving speeches of how he supports Israel. B–l S–t.

  24. I DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA .he is clueless about terrorists. He won’t even use the word. He is above the law I have started calling him king obama as he IGNORES the law.

  25. U will face the wrath of God for your decisions on trying to separate tis land given by God to the jews. Watch out obama!

  26. It is Sad;. Obama blew it. He will leave sad Memories of his Administration.

  27. Cody Flecker says:

    I hope the Jews are happy now that they voted for Obama twice, plus donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the Obama and Democratic political campaign. Now the Jews are flocking to the Hillary campaign. When the Democrats put the Jews into the ovens, don't blame me as I told you so.

  28. I utterly cannot believe why the Israeli Government would listen to one word said by any American Government person,they are all liars deceivers and follow the guff spouted by their masters Obama and Kerry.They are determined to stab Israel in the back.

  29. Stuart Wilson says:

    POTUS is POTTY!!!!

  30. Miles Fisher says:

    I am Jewish, and it is sad to say, but you are 100% correct. Unfortunately, for the majority of my people, it is:
    Democrat Party first… Israel last.
    Democrat Party first… Jewish self-respect never!
