Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas welcomed President Barack Obamas speech in Jerusalem on Thursday, while Hamas condemned Obama for adopting Israels position.
"President Abbas welcomed President Obama's speech in Jerusalem saying that achieving peace and the option of two states on the 1967 borders are the way to bring security for the Israeli and Palestinian peoples," the PAs peace negotiator Saeb Erekat told AFP.
Gazas Hamas terrorist leaders, meanwhile, criticized Obama and condemned Abbass Palestinian Authority for cooperating with the U.S. government.
Referring to comments made by Obama during a joint press conference with Abbas in Ramallah, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the remarks "lack content and do not include anything new or an obligation toward the Palestinian people.
Abu Zuhri claimed that Obama has adopted the "Zionist position regarding the right of return," adding that the Presidents demand that Hamas stop terrorism and accusations that the group is responsible for the suffering of PA Arabs is a reversal of reality and a bias in Israel's favor. Abu Zuhri claimed that the reason for Arab suffering is the alleged siege imposed by Israel on Gaza and the Israeli attacks on the region.
Abu Zuhri also said that President Obama's remarks on Israel being a "Jewish state" are a racist approach.
Salah Bardawil, a senior Hamas figure, said that "the only way is to exercise the right of the Palestinian people to struggle until the liberation of the land, self-determination, return of refugees and the release of prisoners."
During his speech in Jerusalem, Obama spoke about the need for establishing a state of Palestine with viable borders, so that Israel could achieve peace.
...receiving warm applause throughout his speech, Obama eventually reached the point at which he called on Israelis to put pressure on their own government.

Abbas funded the Munich Olympic murders.
Therefore, he is a terrorist financier.
Y-you mean, he’s b-b-b-ad? My world is crushed. How could a great man like Obama keep such company?/s
Of course he would. Obama is a Muslim.
Obama does not even bother to hide being a Muslim anymore. People in Washington are abuzz about the collection of antique prayer rugs he keeps in the White House residence — at least that is what I have been told.

Okay, I’ll bite. Who told you this?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I had better not give the name. But Google “Obama” and “prayer rugs” and see how many hits you find.
Well, I did as you requested and Google search revealed no such thing. There were some jokes about it but no attributable quotes, so unless you can provide something other than innuendo, I’ll continue to believe this is bullcrap.
Obama is not a good president, but the Muslim stuff makes some on the Right seem like idiots.
I’ve got liberal friends who spout similar nonsense about conservatives.
Idiocy knows no political boundaries.
