Barack Obama appears to have come down on the side of Hamas in the current conflict with Israel.
The Times of Israel reported Saturday that Israeli officials were infuriated by the latest proposal by Secretary of State Kerry. They said they were “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that there were no demands made of Gaza but Israel and Egypt were told to open their border crossings with Gaza and to also allow Hamas to build a seaport on the Mediterranean, which Israel and Egypt should help pay for. It also required “the creation of a post-conflict funding channel for Hamas from Qatar and other countries, according to the sources,” the Times of Israel says.
The seaport and crossings would be used for arms shipments in all likelihood.
Israeli officials said that there was no mention of Israel finishing the job of eliminating the tunnels.
This information is impossible to believe but, if true, Obama should be arrested for conspiring with known terrorists.
After the failed negotiations, Kerry flew to Paris and met with representatives of Qatar, allies of Hamas, and Turkey, known enemies of Israel.
Turkey has now decided to throw the weight of the Turkish army behind a Gaza flotilla – Freedom Flotilla II – supposedly laden with humanitarian aid. It is not yet organized but the people behind it are the same people who backed the last flotilla. These flotillas could be carrying weapons.
Last Monday, according to MSNBC, President Barack Obama called for an immediate ceasefire and at the same time Secretary of State John Kerry announced $47 million in aid – humanitarian – to Gaza.
Netanyahu said on Sunday that Hamas had fired 2,000 rockets in recent days, forcing Israeli’s hand. “I mean, we didn’t seek this escalation,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Hamas forced it on us. They started rocketing our cities, steadily increasing the fire.”
That appears to be irrelevant to President Obama. Also, irrelevant to him is the arms deal allegedly being worked out with N. Korea, if the telegraph is accurate in their reporting. At least he hasn’t addressed the issue. He went golfing today at the renowned Congressional Country Club course according to White House Dossier, but feel reassured that he has his teleprompter with him in case he needs to give yet another speech.
In a telegraph exclusive, Hamas has paid North Korea for missiles and communications equipment in an arms deal worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The deal will allow them to continue their offensive against Israel.
A Lebanese trading company is allegedly brokering the deal with a cash down payment already having been made. They are eager to get Pyongyang to provide hundreds of missiles together with communications equipment that they will use to attack Israelis.
The Obama-Kerry donation of $47 million to Hamas is very timely.
Obama has been pressuring Israel to agree to truces and during this recent truce, agreed to by Hamas, Hamas kept firing rockets into Israel.
On CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, President Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said that Secretary of State John Kerry is seeking “a common place” between Israel and Hamas in order “to stop the violence” in Gaza.
Ben Rhodes, a foreign policy adviser close to Obama, criticized Israel over alleged civilian casualties in Gaza, saying “I think you can always do more.”
Hamas claims a loss of 1,000 lives, Israel 45. If the numbers were reversed and Israel was losing, Obama might be happier.
In early June, according to the NY Times, Barack Obama said he would negotiate with the Palestine Authority even though they formed a coalition government with Hamas. In other words, he agreed to negotiate with the terror group Hamas that exists only to destroy Israel. He also insisted that Israel negotiate with Hamas.
The preamble of the Hamas charter begins: ″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it″. The charter is as anti-semitic as Mein Kampf.
Here’s some advice Mr. Obama, stay on the golf course and take Kerry with you!
