Obama Refuses to Condemn Carter’s Hamas Visit

Five Arab armies (Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq) invaded Israel in 1948. Their intentions were declared by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades.

“We like Mr. Obama and hope he will win the election.”

Who said those famous words? John Kerry? Governor Bill Richardson? The latest of the Clinton defectors, former Labor Secretary Robert Reish? If you’d guess any of those, you’d be wrong. The words are those of Hamas chief political advisor Ahmed Yousef. You might have come up with Jimmy Carter, too, in which case you’d be half right. Former president Jimmy Carter is on a free-lance foreign policy cruise to the Mideast to meet with Hamas leaders. Cover for the Carter trip is that he’d get one of the captured Israeli soldiers back but Hamas terrorists are milking his visit for all of its worth. Carter is beating a track into the carpet at his hotel as he is summoned to parlay at Islamo-Nazi Central Command. What arrogance from this former president who failed to obtain the release of a hundred American embassy hostages tied to poles while he was president!

Barack Obama was asked about the Carter trip in Wednesday’s debate and Obama refused to condemn the Carter tete-a-tete with terrorists. Obama is worse than naïve—he would be a foreign policy disaster who says he would hold direct talks with the Iranian regime. That means Amadinajad, a holocaust denier who has called for the country of Israel to be “wiped off the map.”

It’s bad enough that Obama supporters are self-deluding apologists for their candidate’s self-indulgent cant, but they want to deceive you, too. Obama supporters like Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.) routinely tell public lies that redress Obama’s real foreign policy statements and couch them in favorable terms as if he is a friend to Israel. Mr. Obama must add the Carter trip to all the other things he should condemn to have any credibility as a presidential candidate.
