PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama on Wednesday disagreed with former President Jimmy Carter's overtures toward Hamas, saying he would not talk to the Islamist group until it recognized Israel and renounced terrorism.
The Illinois senator, campaigning in Pennsylvania which holds the next presidential voting contest on Tuesday, told a group of Jewish leaders he has an "unshakable commitment" to help protect Israel from its "bitter enemies."
"That's why I have a fundamental difference with President Carter and disagree with his decision to meet with Hamas," Obama said. "We must not negotiate with a terrorist group intent on Israel's destruction. We should only sit down with Hamas if they renounce terrorism, recognize Israel's right to exist and abide by past agreements."
"Hamas is not a state. Hamas is a terrorist organization," he said.
Obama's opponents have criticized him for saying as president he would be willing to meet with foreign leaders who are hostile to the Unites States. Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican John McCain have called those comments naive and said such meetings would bestow credibility on those leaders.

Obama is a liberal dupe a pawn to be played by the Leaders of enemy states and Terror organizations..and they know it...
Heck would he sit down over a Hookah with Osama Bin Laden too? I mean as long as he said he wouldn't harm Americans again.... Right?
Obama criticizes ex-President Carter's Hamas meeting
Obama will seek aid from these anti-American nations in his own quest, in keeping with his own ideology/theology, to bring the traditional American way of life to an end.
Yeah, really. You know Reuters would cringe at using the word “terror”.
I'm beginning to think that "liberal dupe" is redundant.
I wonder if he would’ve talked to the KKK in the 50s like that. I guess that they had a “legitimate greivance” and were a sponsor of terrorism. In fact, why not give Obama his own talk show and have him yakk it up with every dictator ala Larry King Live.
Of course if it is an ally of our procedures he will just bomb them, yeah great thinking Obama! Somehow a guy who protected Pakistan from making the terrorists get a bomb(and possibly might have OBL in that country) should be bombed rather than the guy who might be hiding OBL and has said to nuke Israel. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense... to a rear-end jerk.
Originally Obama said he would NOT criticize Carter’s trip because “Jimmy Carter is a private citizen” (unlike Don Imus, apparently, who was criticized by Obama).
he has even got the backing of hamas and other terrorists obama has
Now it speaks volumes when the enemies of this country want obama.
I hope that jewish group didn;t fall for his lies like some idiots have.
obama is becoming a bigger flip flopper than kerry and he has the gaul to say it’;s clinton who would say anything to get elected
Do not change the headline. If you want to editorialize in the headline, add your comments after the actual headline in brackets.
I didn't know Midwesterners had a problem with Israel.
Sure took him long enough. The poll results must have just come in.
Didn’t he say he would meet with the President of Iran even though Iran is on the Terrorist list?
“I wonder if he wouldve talked to the KKK in the 50s like that. I guess that they had a legitimate greivance and were a sponsor of terrorism.”
He would be talking to his own political masters if that happened.
