The fact that receiving Hamas support does not appear to disturb Obama should worry us even more than the fact that terrorists see something in him that they really like.
The 2008 Presidential campaign has already seen a number of outlandish, and patently false, attacks. The idea that Islamic terrorists are picking a side in selection of an American president might seem to be yet another for the list if it didnt have its basis in truth.
A few weeks ago, Ahmed Yousef, a top political adviser for terrorist group Hamas, said in an interview on WABC radio in New York that the group supports Obama. We like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance, Yousef explained. Hamas, which seized control of the Palestinian Gaza last June, has long been designated as a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department.
The Obama campaign has claimed to be flattered by the fact that the Hamas endorsement compared their candidate to Kennedy. Obama himself told the Atlantic magazine that he understands why Hamas would support him. Its conceivable that there are those in the Arab world who say to themselves, This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so hes not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy diplomacy as George Bush. Obama concluded that the perception is legitimate as long as they understand he will be unyielding in his support for Israel.
So what have Baracks Hamas friends been up to lately? Well, on the very day President Bush arrived in Israel to mark the nations 60th anniversary and to renew his push for a Palestinian state as part of elusive Israeli-Palestinian peace process, Baracks buddies fired a rocket into an Israeli shopping mall. The mall was devastated, and 14 innocent civilians were seriously injured.
The Hamas endorsement of Obama is even more interesting when viewed against the backdrop of the groups aggressive promotion of violence among young Palestinians in Gaza and in the context of a recent Al-Jazeera story about how young Palestinians in Gaza have banded together to call American voters at random asking them to vote for Obama. Rockets by night, Obama phone banks by day?
It all started at the time of the US primaries, says the pro-Obama Palestinian organizer, 23 year old Ibrahim Abu Jayyab. After studying Obamas electronic campaign manifesto I thought this is a man thats capable of change inside of America. As for potential change in the Middle East, he can also do that if he can bring peace to the area. At least this is what we hope. The full Al-Jazeera television report can be viewed here.
Obamas campaign may argue that there is no apparent direct link between the young Palestinian men and the Hamas terrorist organization. But the young phone-bankers have also received coverage from Ramattan, the Palestinian news agency, in what reads like a Hamas-generated anti-Israel press release.
Can anyone seriously believe that young Palestinian men are allowed free and easy access to operate an internet phone bank in the impoverished and violent Gaza Strip and bring that effort to the attention of the international media without Hamas knowledge and approval? The support that Barack Obama is receiving from avowed terrorist enemies of America should bother him. The fact that it does not bother him should bother us even more than the fact that terrorists see something in him that they really like.

Change to die for.....
“The fact that receiving Hamas support does not appear to disturb Obama should worry us...”
What should worry us most is that his supporters do not seem to care that their thinking parallels that of Hammas’. But then again, Hammas is a part of the ROP so why should we have to worry?
Ummmm, let me guess....Is it because he is, at heart, a terrorist?
His support is blowing up?
I guess it is for the same reason he wasn’t bothered that his church’s newsletter reprinted a letter from a senior member of Hamas.
Barack Obamas Marxist Mentor
Obama is a Muslim. It’s as simple as that. And all the Muslims seem to know it.
Obama isn’t bothered by this as he really believes he is some sort of Messiah, and that HE can talk peace with said life forms such as Hamas.
Unfortunately, should he be elected his high self esteem won’t be just his alone to mourn.
I know that we have to be really careful about the tinfoil hat stuff...
But I sense and fear that there might (potentially) be some sort of tacit alliance or kinship between Obama and the Islamists. I have no special knowledge, just a hunch based on the way he and the evil side act (in this case, an endorsement by Hamas). This is not an accusation, it is however a fear of mine.
Based solely on observation (and perhaps some suspicion), I also sense that as slippery and as slimy as the man is, he is simply unable to act comfortably as a patriotic, America-loving, military-supporting presidential candidate! For whatever reason, a deep appreciation of this Country, our values, and our way of life is just not in the man's DNA.
Obama himself is just like his supporters, they would be excited if Ron Jeremy endorsed him. I would say Larry Flint, but he’s been a Clinton supporter for years now.
“Obama is a Muslim. It’s as simple as that. And all the Muslims seem to know it.”
He is a deceiver. The lubricious ease with which he disavows longtime associates—and their happy acceptance of disavowal—is a major warning sign.
I like your trojan horse Lucy, very cute post!
Good graphic Phil
I agree with you 100%. Obama is rotten to the core, Hillary is Kate Smith by comparison. If Obama is elected, we are in deep deep crap....if Hill is elected were are just in deep crap....if McCain is elected we are just crap out of luck. Fun election eh?
Good post Phil
Somebody out there is upset with my Nøbama graphics
Obama isn’t bothered by terrorist support because he knows that the MSM will deflect the truth for him. He and they will cry racism no matter what charge is leveled at him. I hope McCain’s prepared to bring up Obama’s record and be strong in his criticism. McCain and all his supporters will be called racists. Better get used to it.
