President Punchdrunk gives our money to Hamas miscreants.
Feel safer with this assclown in charge?
Calling the situation in the Gaza Strip “unsustainable,” Obama on Wednesday said the Israeli blockade of the area should be curbed to focus only on weapons and separately announced a new $400 million aid package to help the Palestinian people there and in the West Bank.
Obama made the comments after meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the Oval Office, where the two said they discussed how to allow more goods and services into the region, which has been the target of an airtight blockade by Israel aimed at preventing arms shipments.
……Abbas said his government is committed to peace and pushed back against suggestions it is inciting violence.
“I say in front of you, Mr. President, that we have nothing to do with incitement against Israel, and we’re not doing that. What we care about is to live in coexistence with Israel, in order to bring about the independent Palestinian state that will live side by side with Israel in peace and stability,” he said.
That Abbas, he’s such a card isn’t he? ‘Nothing to do with incitement against Israel’. “Oh yes, brother B. Hussein, you have our word that we are peaceful, non-violent people with nothing but the utmost respect for our Israeli neighbors. We would never dream of launching rockets, sending homicide bombers, or calling for the destruction of our wonderful Jewish friends. And that $400 million will be put to good use building bridges to peace and brotherhood. Make sure to extend my gratitude to the American people for such a generous donation.”
The story left out the part of a drummer in the corner doing rim shots.
Hell, the Dems even included Hamas in the stimulus bill:
The United States plans to pledge more than $900 million to help rebuild Gaza after Israel’s offensive against Hamas and strengthen the Palestinian Authority, a U.S. official said on Monday.
The money will be channeled through UN and other bodies and will not be distributed via the militant group Hamas, which rules Gaza, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to make the announcement next week at a Gaza donors conference in Egypt.
The March 2 donors conference in Sharm el-Sheikh resort aims to raise humanitarian and rebuilding funds for Gaza after Israel’s offensive against Hamas at the end of last year.

And here’s a real comforting thought:
Obama reiterated his support for a Palestinian state, calling it the “only real way to solve this problem.”
Yeah, just what we need. Endorsing a way for Palestinian/Hamas thugs to have a center of gravity for their terrorist state.
Say Obama, while your making us foot the bill for the “security” of an Islamic terrorist group in the Middle East, do you think you might be able to spare some for our border/national security? Nah, didn’t think so. You’re too busy being a Dhimmi tool. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called. He wants a cut.
