Skip to comments.Hamas endorses Obama (audio)

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.

this ought to make a good commercial!
This was inevitable since Farrakhan is not running.
its now on fox and circulating the blogosphere.
Perhaps the Dems can get Ahmed Yousef to keynote their National Convention in Denver.
To the average Joe this might seem a preposterous idea, but the frightening thing is it is all too real a possibility.
According to Yousef it’s the Jewish propaganda machine that convinces the world that they are terrorists, because everyone knows that they represent the mainstream of Islam.
Let me help Yousef out: The west has made a mistake labeling Hamas as a fringe organization that has hijacked Islam. The truth is Yousef is right: Hamas is representative of mainstream Islam, as terrorism is a founding principle of Islam.
Another good one! You do great work!
Who is Farfur the Mouse endorsing? How about that bumblebee? Can’t Hamas have a seance to find out who they support?
So Jimmuh’s goal in traveling to the Middle East was to snag the Hamas endorsement of Obama?
Oh man — RF — that’s awesome! LOL
Wow - antoher terrorist endorses BHO... 3:55 into the clip.
I am sooooooooo shocked!
I’m shocked I tell you, shocked! (sarcasm)
Birds of a feather.
First Ayers and now these guys.
I find it embarassing for our country that obama is even in the running.
It is truly surreal. I am not all that old but I feel like my country has changed radically in just the last 12 years. It isn’t the same place it was when I was younger.
I suspect it will just get weirder.
