Abbas Welcomes Obama's Jerusalem Speech
Arutz Sheva ^ | 22/3/13 | Elad Benari

Posted on 03/21/2013 6:02:18 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas welcomed President Barack Obama’s speech in Jerusalem on Thursday, while Hamas condemned Obama for “adopting Israel’s 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 PA’s peace negotiator Saeb Erekat told AFP.

Gaza’s Hamas terrorist leaders, meanwhile, criticized Obama and condemned Abbas’s 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 President’s 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.

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.

“peace and the option of two states on the 1967 borders are the way to bring security for the Israeli and Palestinian peoples”

A Palestinian state and false peace, coming soon to an Earth near you.

“peace ... security”

English Standard Version

“peace and security”

King James Version

“peace and safety”

Did you read that piece in the Boston Globe where Obama is talking about Passover and says "it’s a part of the three great religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- that trace their origins to Abraham, and see Jerusalem as sacred" ? As a Christian, I have attended a Seder and know many Christians who are very interested in the Passover... but never would I consider it a Christian Holy Day. How about Muslim? What was Obama smoking when he said that Passover was part of Islam? It gave me goose bumps just to read his comments, all I can say is that the Lord is not in the business of smiting people any longer!

Unfortunately, it’s not just Obozo who promotes this lie of islam being from Abraham. A worldwide “religion” will follow after this lie.

Okay, I’ll bite. Who told you this?

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.
