Skip to comments.Obama: Terror groups have 'legitimate claims'

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.
