Obama Urges Israel Not to ‘Destabilize Situation’ After Hamas Murdered Teens
NRO ^ | 6/30/2014 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 07/01/2014 8:39:51 AM PDT by mojito

President Obama urged Israeli leaders not to “destabilize the situation” following the discovery of the bodies of three teenagers, including one American citizen, who were kidnapped by Hamas, according to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“As a father, I cannot imagine the indescribable pain that the parents of these teenage boys are experiencing,” Obama said in a prepared statement. “From the outset, I have offered our full support to Israel and the Palestinian Authority to find the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice, and I encourage Israel and the Palestinian Authority to continue working together in that effort. I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation..."

Netanyahu vowed retribution for Hamas, whom he blamed for the murders. “Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay,” Netanyahu said, per Haaretz.

A Hamas leader praised the kidnappers last week but would “neither confirm nor deny” that his organization was responsible. “Blessed be the hands that captured them,” Hamas’s Khalad Mashaal said, according to the Times of Israel.

Barry has blood on his hands...again. It was US policy to bring Hamas into a Palestinian coalition. And this is the result.

But nothing is too good, no bridge is too far, for Barry's muslim brothers.

I’m certain that Israel is listening intently, hanging on every word.

What situation would Israel be destabilizing, BO? The present situation where Hamas feels they can impudently and brazenly murder Israeli children?

I never understand this. Israel is just supposed to roll over and accept continual terror attacks and crimes against humanity such as this, but not retaliate. Per Obama, retaliation is an unacceptable response, and retaliation is the action which destabilizes the region, not the original terrorist attack. How does this make sense?

Early intel suggested that ISIS, Obozo’s blood bros, may have been involved.

The last thing Obozo wants is to have ISIS and any of his Sunni bros taken out.

Hey Barry?

What happened to “get in their faces.” “Punish your enemies”

And why the hell is it Israel’s responsibility to not escalate the situation when her citizens, and ours mind you, are murdered, and they have rockets raining down on their cities?

‘Destabilize Situation’

Only antisemitic bigots would think a stable situation in which terrorists murder innocent civilians is worth preserving. The whole point of striking back with overwhelming force against terrorists, terrorist training camps, and those who fund terrorists is to destabilize an unacceptable situation and move toward a more civilized equilibrium. There is no acceptable nonzero rate of rocket and mortar attacks, kidnappings, murders, and suicide bombings at which decent people want to keep the situation stable.

I think Israel could do a lot to stabilize things by driving the entire population of Gaza into the Med or the Sinai and annexing it.

Can anyone cite even ONE instance in which he did not side with the Muslims over any other party? Or ONE instance in which he CONDEMNED the violence of Muslim jihadists without offering up the “don't overreact” theme?

Hitler's Germany killed all the Jews he could get his hands on, and that's how it is with Hamas.

Obama is essentially a modern Hitler supporter.

“Blessed be the hands that captured them,”

Here is the voice of the so-called religion of islam: "Blessed" be hands that murdered innocent boys. Islam is no religion - it's a repulsive hideous satanic cult and allah is its prophet - may his followers spend their eternity in hell drowning in pig feces.

Barry has blood on his hands...again.

As I never tire of reporting on FR, even though the story got very little 'traction' then and gets less now, Obama's history as a facilitator of Christian persecution goes back a lot farther than Iraq.

This is the man who in 2006 stumped in Kenya (illegally) for Raila Odinga, whom he claims as a Luo cousin. Odinga trained in East Germany, along with several Obama relatives, is a fervent communist who uses jihad and sharia law to subvert Kenya's shaky democracy.

Odinga's Obama-supported platform: Independent Muslim provinces ruled by Sharia law, expulsion of missionaries from Kenya, expulsion of Christians from Kenya's government, confiscation of Christian-owned lands

This East Germany-Trained Communist jihadi terrorist Odinga for whom Obama AND Dick Morris raised several $million (illegally) and for whom they campaigned on the ground for in Kenya (illegally),lost his internationally monitored election.

Odinga and Obama decided to ignore the results. Odinga fomented a Muslim insurrection in which at least several thousand Christians were massacred, their lands confiscated, and survivors driven from their homes.

Whereupon the then-Jr. Senator-from Illinois Obama, began intense lobbying with the our Department of State and The UN to broker/blackmail a power-sharing deal to include Odinga in the legal government of Kenya as PM. Odinga was an honored guest at the Obama Inauguration.

This entire sordid episode was financed by none other than George Soros on a pass-through the Clinton Foundation. This was amply documented by the BBC at the time, but the story was buried in the US and even the McCain Campaign chose to ignore it, allowing a President to take office with Christian blood on his hands.

Obviously then, it is completely fatuous to expect this administration to come to the aid of Christians or Jews. Christians have been crucified in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria and Iraq. Burned alive in Pakistan, tortured in Afghanistan. Jewish children in Israel are kidnapped and murdered. Through the Obama Administration, our tax dollars pay for it. The United States has officially made us all war criminals. The Republicans? In this they are complicit, even if only by their shameful silence.

1. If having your kids kidnapped and murdered at random is "stability," then "stability" has got to go.

2. That's not how he reacted to the Trayvon Martin shooting. Screw stability, let's all get Very Upset.

A US citizen was killed here, and all Obama can do is tell our ally to restrain itself. If I were President, I would tell the Israelis that they could take whatever means to deal with the situation and that we would back them up with intelligence and other support.
