Hamas Endorses Obama


On Sunday, Aaron Klein and John Batchelor interviewed Ahmed Yousef, chief political adviser to the Prime Minister of Hamas, on WABC radio. The interview produced a scoop which, for some reason, has not been widely publicized: Hamas has endorsed Barack Obama for President. Yousef said, “We like Mr. Obama and we hope he will win the election.” Why? “He has a vision to change America.” Maybe Yousef has some insight into what Obama means by all these vague references to “change.”

Of course, Hamas’s taste in American presidents is suspect. Yousef also described Jimmy Carter, who was about to pay a call on Hamas when the interview was taped, as “this noble man” who “did an excellent job as President.”

Yousef was asked about Obama’s condemnation of Carter’s visit with Hamas, but didn’t seem troubled by it. Hamas, he says, understands American politics; this is the election season, and everyone wants to sound like a friend of Israel. Nevertheless, he hopes that the Democrats will change American policies when they take office.

    Of course Hamas loves Obama and wants him to win the election. They think he would throw Israel under the bus, and they’re probably right.

    Yup And watch them test that thesis shortly after the inauguration. The world simply can’t afford this guy.

    “Yousef also described Jimmy Carter, who was about to pay a call on Hamas when the interview was taped, as “this noble man” who “did an excellent job as President.””

    Given that the pinnacle of Carter’s Middle East policy was the Israel Egypt peace deal ( which was possibly actually brokered by someone else), and Hamas’s ideological allies assassinated President Sadat for that deal, it seems strange that they should be so admiring of Jimmy Carter.

    I don’t think it is a question of admiration. I think they see “useful idiot” stenciled on his forehead everytime he walks into a room.


Well, SAY something...
