The calls came as the State Department stated that the U.S. would work with the new unity government.

According to The Hill, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) said that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas “argues that the new government is composed of ministers without political affiliation, but this new government appears dependent upon Hamas and Hamas continues to support terrorism in its quest to destroy the state of Israel.” …

Not since they let Obama borrow the purse strings, no. They can’t even get any funding for new spines if they wanted them.

Obama will never stop supporting islamoNazi murderers and terrorists , so this is just a whistle in the dark Note, too, that It is Congress which controls the purse strings. Congress can end the subsidies to all the anti-Americsn, Islamicist groups anytime it wishes. Has Perhaps Mr Boehner said he will provide the leadership to achieve this? Has any congresscritter introduced a bill to do this? Or is this call for action just political posturing bs?

That’s my first thought as well. Everyone’s treating obama like a dictator. And as a result, he gets away with acting like one.
