WND Exclusive FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU After attack on Jews, Obama gives condolences to Palestinians Woman killed, at least 38 wounded in attack at crowded Jerusalem bus stop Posted: March 23, 2011 4:24 pm Eastern

JERUSALEM President Obama's official statement on today's bombing at a crowded bus stop in Jerusalem included a clause expressing his "deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday."
The statement seems to draw a moral equivalence between today's attack in Jerusalem, in which Jewish civilians were targeted, and the death of four Palestinian civilians who were killed in an Israel Defense Force strike targeting a site used yesterday by militants in Gaza to launch mortars at nearby Jewish population centers.
Gazan terrorist groups routinely use civilian zones, including apartment buildings and hospitals, to launch rockets and mortars aimed at Jewish neighborhoods near the Gaza Strip.
The IDF said in a statement the army here believed it was targeting a terrorist rocket team and did not know civilians were in the area.
A 59-year-old woman was killed in today's blast in Jerusalem, with at least 38 people wounded in attack.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
It never ends with this pos.
God bless Israel and all who protect her.
President Obama’s official statement on today’s bombing at a crowded bus stop in Jerusalem included a clause expressing his “deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday.”
Bet that video that L.A. Times(?) has but won’t release is very interesting.
LOL! Well 70+% of American Jews voted for this Jew hater and they still love him. They sure hated Bush.
BTW - their pin up boy gave the Palestinians at least $800 million to kill Jews. Elections have consequences. If Hilter came back from the dead with a D after his name - they would vote for him. Sad.
Well we’ve always known where O’s sympathies have been so no surprises here.
Obama - step off. THose are the only civil words I can use here.
...to draw a moral equivalence between today's attack in Jerusalem, in which Jewish civilians were targeted, and the death of four Palestinian civilians who were killed in an Israel Defense Force strike targeting a site used yesterday by militants in Gaza to launch mortars at nearby Jewish population centers...
Typical for the pResident-in-Chief.
Zero, like his mother and father before him, is an embarrassment to the civilized world
What video might that be?
Amazing. “Condolences to the Palestinians” indeed. This guy is just plain bold-faced evil.
Just like the clinton condolences to the poor palestinians killed by a retaliatory strike while offering “condolences” to families of the brave US Sailors murdered by islamic terrorists on the USS Cole. Only the names change. The sentiment remains the same.
Zero’s Grandfather was an embarrassment also, by welcoming the very married African that knocked up his underage daughter into his family.
Zero’s Aunt is an Embarrassment also.
Well stated. My first thought was this pos.
From Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
The only reason he attended a `christian’ church is that
the preacher had nothing good to say about this country.
The IDF can write their condolences on some mortar rounds and send them over to the Palis.
The WND title leads one to believe that Obama offered sympathy only to the Palestinians. We have plenty to beat up Obama over, but this is not a good choice. Here is the statement:
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the bombing in Jerusalem today, as well as the rockets and mortars fired from Gaza in recent days. Together with the American people, I offer my deepest condolences for those injured or killed. There is never any possible justification for terrorism. The United States calls on the groups responsible to end these attacks at once and we underscore that Israel, like all nations, has a right to self-defense. We also express our deepest condolences for the deaths of Palestinian civilians in Gaza yesterday. We stress the importance of calm and urge all parties to do everything in their power to prevent further violence and civilian casualties.”
I do not have a problem with this statement.
Thanks for the update. It has been at least three days since your last reminder.......added to your last 100 reminders. Again, a big THANKS!
My neighbor, like most U.S. Jews, will be voting for Obama again ... and inviting me to donate to some Israeli charity. The disconnect never ceases to amaze me.
WND is really a rag
The one where Obama is celebrating some Palestinian, I think in Los Angeles — they wouldn’t release it to the public.
Wonder why that is? Well, there must be a reason.
“I do not have a problem with this statement.”
This statement, that I posted? I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
I do. The `religion of peace’ gives us infidels three choices: conversion, capitulation & subjugation, or death. Period.
And I don’t believe a word his teleprompter says, most recently, for ex., that the war in Libya isn’t a war, that it isn’t regime change and it will last days, not weeks.
I believe his sympathies and ultimate loyalty will be with the muslim religion. This is why, I think, the Constitution requires that presidential candidates be `natural born citizens’.
Of course, you are free to believe what you want; it’s a great country, while it lasts.
“We have plenty to beat up Obama over, but this is not a good choice.”
This sounds like the old, “We’ve got better things to spend our time on than attacking his qualifications for office under the Constitution ... “
Like what? This site is comparable to `letters of correspondence’ in this county a couple hundered years ago, and I’ll admit that I’m partisan.
We should attack him with every weapon in our arsenal. Was this bomb set off by Israelis? No, they never are—they are exploded by murderous Arabs. And Zero is extending his sympathies to them. I think that may be the point some are trying to make.
Obama should mind his own business if he can’t stop lending aid and comfort to the enemy. He’s certainly got a full domestic docket but he can’t resist playing general and statesman. He’s neither.
Well you are wrong. It was despicable - and deliberate - to combine the two statements.
The real meaning is, “BTW you Jews killed some people too, so don’t think this statement means I am siding with you”.
I do. It creates the impression for the ignorant that there is a moral equivalency between the victims of a vicious terror attack and individuals who (if they were really even "civilians") were unfortunate to get caught in the middle of a defensive counter attack to another ARAB act of war.
The Israelis risk their own lives to help protect civilians. The Arabs fire warshots while hiding behind civilians.
Those who can't see the difference here are willfully blind.
The dinner for Rashid Khalidi, a real Israel hater, now spewing at Columbia U, Zero’s alma mater.
I long to be a fly on the wall when that tape is played.
