The Long Arm of Qatar

Though few Americans paid any attention at the time, in November of last year, Secretary of State John Kerry announced to the world that this summer would be defined by violence against the Jewish state. Warning Israel to make a deal with the likes of Hamas and Fatah, Palestinian parties who do not acknowledge Israel’s right to exist, Kerry said, “Does Israel want a third intifada? … “I believe that if we do not resolve the issues between Palestinians and Israelis; if we do not find a way to find peace, there will be an increasing isolation of Israel. There will be an increasing campaign of delegitimization of Israel that’s taking place on an international basis.” Kerry’s November comments were followed up in May by other, albeit anonymous, officials… one who stated, “I guess we need another intifada to create the circumstances that would allow progress.”

These were thuggish words, even for an administration that has aided, abetted, encouraged, and armed the anti-Semitic, genocidal Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda rebels in Syria. Yet the Obama administration spoke with more than words. In June, the administration had the State Department approve $500 million of funding to a unity government between Hamas and Fatah. This, despite the fact that according to U.S. law, it is illegal to fund any Palestinian entity in which Hamas is a member. Repetitively calling the Palestinian government “technocratic,” as (opposed to what, “terrorist?”), State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki brazenly lied to the press, stating, “[There is] no evidence that Hamas plays any role in the interim technocratic government.” One month later, that “no evidence” is technocraticly launching rockets into Israel.

And here I thought that the Saudi royal family was the sponsor of most 9/11 terrorism.

I guess that we have a new oil state tying to take the lead in state sponsored terrorism away from Russia and Iran.
