You guys are aware that Abbas is the soft-line reformist leader of the PLO...

While it's good to find that you apparently recognize that there is no meaningful distinction between the "Palestinian Authority" and the PLO, you seem not to recognize the fact that the people responding to this thread know precisely who "President Abbas" is and what he stands for.

We are not fooled by the game of "good terrorist, bad terrorist".

BTW, welcome to FR.

We know who Abbas is noamsmi.

A good rule when new to FreeRepublic.com is to read the threads awhile before posting. It will give you time to collect your thoughts.

Calling Israel FIRST would have been a very good idea, in my opinion.

Yes, welcome to FR, troll:

noamsml |1 pointwritten 1 hour ago

It's actually amusing, though, how those comments are very similar in their structure and phrasing to leftist reddit comments.

EDIT: Though reddit is rarely so overtly racist (the closest it gets is in matters dealing with Jewish people participating in government, but even then there are at least some dissenting voices).

I expected this. Mahmoud Abbas will be the source of his first accomplishment. I believe Israel weakened Hamas enough so that Fatah can be the power that restores 'normalcy' to the Palis in Gaza. That pushes Hamas out of the way, and Abbas can use Zero to negotiate a two-state peace treaty with Israel, all before the Israeli elections.

That's what the Kadima Party has been angling for in this most recent war in Gaza.

Change WE can believe in? Who is WE? GUESS WHAT, IT’S NOT THEM.

If Clinton infected the White House with dangerous idiots, Obama is surrounding himself for slaughter. We are so liberal and compromised and surrounded nowadays, we will fear fighting back. It’s the same thing I saw in college, with dumb blond liberal girls still laughing at liberal rallies when surrounded by muslims screaming they’d be raped tonight... and they did but no complaint ever came out.

Denial’s a b!tch, for real.

Any f@g or whore like Obama “can believe” in anything someone threatening tells them. It makes their own lies more believable. Liar liar, pants on fire, has never been so true.

“In a Stunning Display of Ignorance, Absolutely Zero Freepers Knew Abbas is the More Pro-Western Palestinian Leader”


Interesting troll quote indeed, and typical way for them to express denial.

A similar story goes like this:

I know that the starving have clean teeth because they do not touch food with them.

Now liberals texting randomly at work claim that oral sex is the best of natural tooth cleaning activity... “in a stunning show of ignorance for us that it is the most ‘tooth friendly’ of foods”.

Things that makes one go hmmmmm....

Seriously. This guy is gonna make me stoke out. We are so screwed. Not like when Carter or Clinton were there. Like really screwed. Dangerously screwed. He is/will be the laughing stock of the entire world, the arab world for sure. They love to find weakness in their enemey the infidels. We now have a totally weak usurper in our White House. The terrorists never had it so easy.

I am finding the whole matter, from Nov.4th to now, to be rather surreal. It is a living nightmare. One day in, and he’s throwing all he can at America to bring her down. He is insane, not bordering on it, as posted earlier. This guy is a danger to every American. I especially feel bad for those of us who knew this stuff would happen. The dupes that voted for him, they deserve what they get. They will no doubt be too stupid to know what Usurper is doing, as they are too busy watching Oprah and sipping lattes. I am surprised at the damage he has done in less than 48 hours.

“fumbled the swearing in ...”

I did not see any coverage of the travesty on Jan.20th. However after I learned of his bobbling of the oath, I am a tiny bit sorry I missed that. I just could not watch our country get turned over to Hussein.

I do hope someone is “keeping tabs on him”, making him more nervous than he would normally be. He is so totally unqualified for the toughest job on the planet. He can only fail miserably. If we all survive it, it will be wonderful to see his downfall. The bigger they are the harder they fall. The media has made him pretty big, he has a long way to fall.

Do you think old Hill and Bill are putting the screws to Usurper? Amoung others of course.

Thank you for your support. It is good to know someone understands. I wrote the Supremes 2 more snail mails today, this time with no respectful terms, and laying it on the line in plain english, that what has happened is that they allowed our Constitution to be violated.

I have added to my gun collection since Nov.4th, added lots of ammo, since it is likely Usurper will make such things too expensive to buy or just plain not available. Can’t tell by your name if you are female or not, I am, and I would recommend that you do find a home defense gun and get trained to use it. The NRA can help with that. Many Freepers are gun savvy. I ask them questions all the time. They will tell you rule #1 is “treat every gun as if it is loaded”. Go to the FR topic “the banglist” on the homepage, there is a wealth of knowledge there.

The other thing I do more now than ever is pray. I pray God forgives us for having an abortionist in The White House. I pray he does not condemn those of us who are desperatley against abortion, but are nonetheless now ruled by an illegal usurper who will make abortions more common. I pray The Lord will let us see 2012 and have this fire we are in forge an army of conservative candidates for the next elections. The GOP is so clueless. Unless they get a really conservative leader there, they are done for.

I have found that reciting The Lord’s Prayer is comforting. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done” is especially helpful. I have to trust The Lord’s will is being done right now.

It is scary to live through this. I have never been afraid of a ‘president’ before. He is really a dangerous man. The things he has done already make me sick, I mean I feel sick to my stomache.

He does everything exactly wrong. Bass ackwards as my Dad always says. Pray my dear. All Christians should be praying like there’s no tomorrow. God Bless.

Yes. That and more. He is the most dangerous man on the planet now. He could cause total destruction with his stupidity. I would add “narcissistic” to your list of Usurper’s mental problems. Other faults: Egotistical, God-Complex, delusions of grandeur, detachment from reality, snobby, liar, criminal, tax cheat, real estate fraud,friend to terrorists, hates America, ignores his white half, raised by a muslim loving whore, OK, that’s enough. I gotta stop before I get sick. Let’s just say, to my horror, I’d feel a lot better with Hillary in there instead. Now that’s saying a lot.

become rivals as soon as this ass-clown begins to lose grip on power.

You’re right, this inexperienced zero is going to fall hard, he’s surrounded himself with buffoons.

The irony will be his own impatient peeps will likely be his downfall because all that promised pie isn’t even so much as in the oven, so this idea that people won’t see change for 3-4 years won’t fly Mr. President Zero.

“Have them call back after seven...

If something happens to Israel as a result of Obama, he will have destroyed the good will he had going into his term in office.

The white folks who voted for him, will be furious with him.

People in this nation believe in God by a vast majority. They are mostly Christians and believe in Israel. They may be soft-headed at times, but when push comes to shove, they are going to side with God’s chosen people.

Pity the guy who doesn’t, and doesn’t know this.

Obama’s first call was to BFF Moqtada al-Sadr just to say what’s up.

Al-Sadr was his first TEXT message on that blackberry he couldn't live without.

Speaking of Castro, Obama may be using Castro's history from 50 years ago as a guide. Castro began his tenure in Cuba by "reaching out" to the US and coming here on a tour on which he was perceived as "the George Washington of his country." It was only when the mask was removed shortly thereafter that he was revealed unmistakably as a Soviet puppet, which many had suspected beforehand.

Obama now is uttering some platitudes that appeal to middle class American values, but there are already signs that such an appeal is merely a stunt out of the Alinsky playbook, "Rules for Radicals."

I think that was a clear signal to Israel about who Obama will be supporting in a Middle-East conflict.

Israel didn't need another "clear signal." It had already had enough of them. Any research into O's background and friends would have been sufficient.

Israel's withdrawal from Gaza on the eve of the coronation was not coincidental timing.

“Obama, Oslo Reactionary”
By P. David Hornik
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, January 26, 2009

SNIPPET: ““It will be the policy of my administration to actively and aggressively seek a lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as between Israel and its Arab neighbors,” President Obama said last week.
He also remarked: “Just as the terror of rocket fire aimed at innocent Israelis is intolerable, so, too, is a future without hope for the Palestinians.”

A day earlier Obama had made his first phone call as president to President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority. And on Wednesday this week, his new-old Middle East envoy George Mitchell is already due here to meet with Israeli and PA leaders.

In other words, Obama means business. Yet each of his above-quoted statements has something fundamentally wrong with it.”
