Skip to comments.Obama: Terror groups have 'legitimate claims'
Posted on 09/08/2008 3:17:27 PM PDT by Winged Hussar
JERUSALEM The Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations have "legitimate claims" that are being "weakened" by the violence the terror groups carry out, Sen. Barack Obama stated in an interview today with the New York Times.
Speaking with columnist David Brooks, Obama said the U.S. needs a foreign policy that "looks at the root causes of problems and dangers."
The presidential candidate compared Hezbollah to Hamas, stating they both need to be compelled to understand that "they're going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims."

AAAAAAAGH! We have GOT to defeat this guy!
Hopefully this gets put in an ad.
“Root causes” is a euphamism which refers to US military and economic support of Israel.
Well, that ought to peel off a good amount of the Jewish vote right there.
oh my GOD! See if that one pops up on tubes.
Any “legitimate claims” these a-holes ever had disappeared when 220 Marines, 18 Sailors, and 3 Soldiers were killed by the “Islamic Jihad” (Hezbollah) on October 23, 1983. Nice move, Barry.
The Nazis had some “legitimate claims” and so did the Soviets. And so does Hugo Chavez and the Ayatolahs in Tehran. But their lunatic claims were and are what counts most with these people. The “legitimate claims” are what they put out to justify and shore up their real claims - like the need for lebensraum for the master race or to create the conditions needed for the return of the 12th imam.
Leftists like Barack Hussein Obama are seemingly incapable of understanding real evil even when it is thrown in their face. The Palestinian terrorists murder women and children and proclaim their undying determination to exterminate every Jew in sight and he prattles about “legitimate claims”. This man is a complete and utter fool.
You’d think so, but it seems the US Jewish contingent is solidly Democratic no matter how big of a hater the Dem candidate is. It confounds me.
Ummm Uhhh Hey Obambi... Amadmanjihadi Want Isareal Destroyed. Hamas wants the Jews Murdered, Hezzbollah Wants to Kill the Zionists in Jeruselem. Now What part of that is a Legitimate Claim? Jews want to live in Peace and they are slaughtered so they take up arms to protect themselves and you have the Nerve to give that Moral Equivelancy....
Obama you are the most dangerous man in America right now.
Maybe Obamamaniac can use his 911 speech to the victims and their familys to tell them that the Heinous crime committed on that day only served to undermine AL QAIDA’s Legitimate Claims....
What a Baffooon thats is so much worse then Kerry’s World Test moment.
Maybe it would be easier to convince Bambi to drop out of the race.
"Root causes" are always easy to identify. When it comes to actually dealing with problems and dangers, knowing their root causes doesn't help you do squat about them.
This idiocy is enough to disqualify him. What a maroon.
Every day that I begin to think that this moron can’t get more stupid-er.... he gets more stupid-er.
Please clarify what these legitimate claims are Mr. Obama. I can't seem to figure out what they are.
He wants to look for the root cause? Oh please Bambi look no further than their blood oath to kill all Christians and Jews as demanded by their religion. There saved him some time. What a idiot. He is surrendering before the election...way to go oh brave leader.
The expression “root causes” is standard liberal buffalo plop.
It proves Obama doesn’t have a single independently conceived thought in his entire head.
Except how to obtain more money and power.
Leiberman needs to get to south FL and get this news out about Obama.
My wife was driving (she drives)though an elitist compound/gated community and she said there were 3 houses all in a row with Obama signs on them.
All of them were Jewsih
Why do the Jewish community support a man who hates Israel
I just don’t get it
I would like for His O’lyness to clearly enunciate exactaly what those ligitimate claims are.
That is unbelievable - I’m speechless...
We need to defeat this guy by 10+ points.
If NOTHING ELSE in the litany of EXCELLENT REASONS for NOT making ZEROBAMA the President of the UNITED STATES convinces the OBAMAZOMBIES, the independents or....ANYONE!...then it HAS to be this. This man is INSANE!!!
(sorry for shouting)
.....and with a backdrop of planes crashing into buildings, subways blowing up, kiddy suicide bombers, etc.
Yes B.O.. They claim all Jews and Americans should die. Lets talk it over with them, before they kill us.
For the same reason that 50% of Americans support a man who hates America. It's a sign of the times we're living in. People aren't rational anymore, everything seems inside-out, perverse. One explanation is that God is blinding people as a spiritual punishment for the massive falling away from faith in our times. It is a Biblical explanation of course, and hence will likely be dismissed as 'superstition'. But since 'science' can't explain today's suicidal irrationality, and logic and reason are confounded by it, I personally opt for the Biblical explanation.
As a man who can still apply common sense and reason in this perverse world, I look to Europe as a perfect example of the Biblical explanation of self destructive behavior. Europeans have walked away from their Christian heritage, churches are empty on Sunday, their faith is in socialism and hedonism. At the same time Mohammedans have come in the tens of millions to fill the void created by European apostacy from Jesus Christ, while the former power and glory of Western Europe has declined to near impotency. Cause and effect? I think so. Now look at America, we too are falling away from our traditional faith and values, and we too have fallen into secularism and drunk from the well of multiculturalism, feminism and 'diversity', and our former power and glory are also on the wane. It is entirely possible that in less than three months our elected leader will be a true friend of Islam and Communism, our two worst worldly enemies.
To sum up, when people have finally paid a high enough price for expressing our freedom through license, hedonism, humanism, atheism and secularism, they will return to Jesus Christ and the collective eyes will be opened again, sanity will return.
negotiate with this?
Well, that ought to peel off a good amount of the Jewish vote right there.
It doesn’t matter, has never mattered and is unlikely to matter in the future. American Jews will vote dem no matter who is running and how anti Israel they are. It boggles the mind that this is true. Carter is no friend of Israel and doesn’t hide his views regarding jews, especially Israelis yet American Jews voted for him big time when he was running for office.
Speaking with columnist David Brooks, Obama said the U.S. needs a foreign policy that “looks at the root causes of problems and dangers.” <<<
Maybe some of us, should clue him in on the roots of terrorism.
Is he that stupid?
A sign of desperation among Obama and the Dems. Proves that the McCain/Palin ticket looks good as each new day comes.
He is a terrorist supporter, Big Time.
The O man must be defeated.
In His mind we are the root cause and we should just bring them here for tea and cous cous..easy to get drivers licences and citizenship..new cards printed daily..pssssst..got $5
