Obama gets Hamas Endorsement

You gotta love the Obamessiah. He just keeps piling on the unappealing admirers.

During an interview on WABC radio Sunday, top Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said the terrorist group supports Obama’s foreign policy vision.

“We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance,” Yousef said in response to a question about the group’s willingness to meet with either of the Democratic presidential candidates.

Philip Klein of The American Spectator cornered Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod for a response. This is the tapdance he got:

Axelrod focused on the Kennedy portion of the quote, and was “flattered” by the comparison.

“I like John Kennedy too,” Axelrod said. “That’s about the only thing we have in common with this gentleman from Hamas. We all agree that John Kennedy was a great president, and it’s flattering when anybody says that Barack Obama would follow in his footsteps.”

……I followed up by asking Axelerod why Obama didn’t urge Jimmy Carter to not meet with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal.

“He said today that he fundamentally disagrees with Jimmy Carter,” Axelrod said.

But I reemphasized that Obama never said that Carter shouldn’t do the meeting, and then Axelrod launched into a straw man argument about personal freedom.

“He said that it was ill advised, that he shouldn’t do it, but that he can’t. We actually don’t have any ability. This is the United States of America. We don’t have any ability to go seize someone and neither does the President of the United States, who also asked Mr. Carter not to do it.”

But nobody is urging Obama to seize Carter. The debate is over why he can’t take a moral stand against an ex-president who is meeting with a terrorist group.

I began asking another follow up question on why Obama said Don Imus should be fired, which was a private matter, but would not take a moral stand in the case of Carter.

But a frustrated Axelrod turned away and took another question.

Is this all the Demrats have to offer America besides the Hildabeast?

Let’s see, Barack Hussein Obama so far, as accumulated Louis Farrakhan, Daniel Ortega, Jeremiah Wright, and now, Hamas among his admirers. He’s a human bug light for despots, terrorists, and hate spewers. No wonder the democrats love him.

Hell, if this keeps up, he’ll get a Nobel Peace Prize.

    Hussein was not only stupid and crazy, he was a megalomaniac who thumbed his nose at the UN inspectors and every UN WMD resolution enacted for 12 years.

    The military superiority of our armed forces wasn’t enough of a deterrent because we didn’t make enough of an impression the first time around. We should have gone all the way to Baghdad back in 1991. Instead, he was left alive, in power, and gloating about it.

    He really did not believe we would attack in spite of his violations, deceptions, and terrorist support. Well, surprise, surprise.

    “Shock and Awe” should have been only the beginning of our retaliation. No one, not even George Bush said Iraq had a direct connection to 9/11 itself. It has been indisputably established, however, that he had direct connections to terrorist groups responsible for 9/11.

    READ BEFORE YOU TRY TO THINK:

    The redacted version of “Saddam and Terrorism” is the most definitive public assessment to date from the Harmony program, the trove of “exploitable” documents, audio and video records, and computer files captured in Iraq. On the basis of about 600,000 items, the report lays out Saddam’s willingness to use terrorism against American and other international targets, as well as his larger state sponsorship of terror, which included harboring, training and equipping jihadis throughout the Middle East.

    “The rise of Islamic fundamentalism in the region gave Saddam the opportunity to make terrorism, one of the few tools remaining in Saddam’s ‘coercion’ toolbox, not only cost effective but a formal instrument of state power,” the authors conclude. Throughout the 1990s, the Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) cooperated with Hamas; the Palestine Liberation Front, which maintained a Baghdad office; Force 17, Yasser Arafat’s private army; and others. The IIS gave commando training for members of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the organization that assassinated Anwar Sadat and whose “emir” was Ayman al-Zawahiri, who became Osama bin Laden’s second-in-command when the group merged with al Qaeda in 1998.

    At the very least the report should dispel the notion that outwardly “secular” Saddam would never consort with religious types like al Qaeda. A pan-Arab nationalist, Saddam viewed radical Islamists as potential allies, and they likewise. According to a 1993 memo, Saddam decided to “form a group to start hunting Americans present on Arab soil; especially Somalia,” where al Qaeda was then working with warlords against U.S. humanitarian forces. Saddam also trained Sudanese fighters in Iraq.

    The Pentagon report cites this as “a tactical example” of their cooperation. When Saddam “was ordering action in Somalia aimed at the American presence, Osama bin Laden was doing the same thing.” Saddam took an interest in “far-flung terrorist groups . . . to locate any organization whose services he might use in the future.” The Harmony documents “reveal that the regime was willing to co-opt or support organizations it knew to be part of al Qaeda — as long as that organization’s near-term goals supported Saddam’s long-term version.”

    For 20 years, such “support” included using Fedayeen Saddam training camps to school terrorists, especially Palestinians but also non-Iraqis “directly associated” with al Qaeda, continuing up to the fall of Baghdad. Saddam also provided financial support and weapons, amounting to “a state-directed program of significant scale.” In July 2001, the regime began patronizing a terror cartel in Bahrain calling itself the Army of Muhammad, which, according to an Iraqi memo, “is under the wings of bin Laden.”

    Screwed up the oil seizure? How? By not taking it all for ourselves, which is the excuse you give for us going into Iraq?

    Nothing pleases you lefties. You don’t like the way the war is being fought, but you offer no military plan of your own, let alone which (pick one) terrorist state you think we should attack. Come to think of it, you don’t want us in Iraq, Afghanistan, or anywhere else in the ME. Hell, most of you assclowns blamed America for 9/11 to begin with. Al-Zawahiri loves you.

    Between having to constantly move to avoid being killed/captured, and not being able to show his ugly mug, except on outdated al Jazeera videos, Osama Bin Laden is not a happy camper.

    But, you keep rooting for him. I’m sure he appreciates all the support he can get.

  2. 1. Saddam would have to have been both very stupid and very crazy to attack the USA whose military force is thousands if not millions of times more powerful than his.

    2. “Shock and Awe” qualifies as terrorism. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

    3. Just because Bush/Cheney screwed up the oil siezure did not mean that was not the reason.

    4. The US invasion of Iraq made Osama happy in his cave.

  3. gasdocpol:

    Even though your comment is WAAAAAAAAY off topic and not even in the correct grid zone (that’s ‘area’ for you civilian types), I’ll address your stupidity anyway:

    Saddam Hussein, as evidenced by the WMD found, his previous use and continued willingness to use them, and the documents discovered which connected him to terrorists, was a threat. The fact remains that the inspectors got absolutely nowhere with regard to full disclosure of Hussein’s WMD program. He wasn’t the only threat. Just one of them. But, not anymore, is he?

    When you retaliate, ie: attack an enemy, it’s usually a good idea to hit them where they live and breed, as well as their allies.

    In the Middle East it’s something like this: Pick one.

    Terrorists cross borders. They sure as hell crossed ours, didn’t they? The 9/11 attacks preceded our invasion of ME countries, not the other way around.

    One of the letters we intercepted from Ayman al-Zawahiri to the now in hell Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, specifically mentioned the establishment an Islamic Caliphate in the “heart of the Islamic world”, to include Iraq.

    He mentioned this as being vital to Al Qaeda’s war against Western civilization. Afghanistan was a side show. Despite this, you Dem sockpuppets keep spouting the line that Iraq is a “mistake” because it diverted our attention away from the “real war” in Afghanistan. Well, looks like Zawahiri refuted that notion. Zawahiri also said that Afghanistan is “just the groundwork and the vanguard for the major battles which have begun in the heart of the Islamic world.”

    Newsflash: Even after victory is officially declared in Iraq and Afghanistan, this war ain’t over by a long shot. Terrorists are funded, aided and supported throughout the Middle East.
    The Islamofascist vision of a world Caliphate will continue unless we kill them all off.
    Our policy should be simple: you attack us, we annihilate you, your supporters, your country, everything.

    That’s how you fight a “jihad”. But, I’m a former Soldier, not a politician.

    Oh yeah, and if it was “all about the oil”, we must really suck at it. Most of the crude is going to other countries and being used to pay for the rebuilding of Iraq/Afghanistan infrastructure.

    Meanwhile, I’m still paying almost 4 bucks a gallon. All about the oil, my ass.

    Bin Laden is hiding in a cave somewhere in the mountains of Pakistan. The Al Qaeda and Taliban have been beaten to a pulp.

    He’s not real happy.

  4. GW Bush made Osama Bin Laden happy when he invaded an oil rich Arab country which was no danger to the USA and had not attacked the USA thus confirming what Osama had been telling Arabs for years.
