Hillary Clinton Refuses to Rule Out Working With Hamas…or C’mon! Those terrorists are just misunderstood, freedom loving peeps
Although Hamas condemned the United States over the military operation that killed Osama bin Laden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday refused to rule out the terror group’s inclusion in peace negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.
One day after Fatah and Hamas signed a reconciliation agreement in Cairo, Clinton was asked if this closed the door on Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations for the foreseeable future. “Many steps” must be taken to implement the Fatah/Hamas accord, she said, and “we are going to be carefully assessing what this actually means” because “there are a number of different potential meanings to it.” Clinton repeated the Obama Administration’s call for Hamas to accept conditions that include recognizing Israel’s right to exist and renouncing violence.
Hamas has continued to attack the United States for killing bin Laden. Its leader, Khaled Meshaal, demanded the West “recognize the atrocity of the American raid and the burial of [bin Laden’s] body at sea.”
Shortly after news of bin Laden’s death was announced on Sunday, Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas regime in Gaza, said: “We condemn any killing of a holy warrior or of a Muslim and Arab person and we ask God to bestow his mercy upon him.”
I’d like to say that this suprises me but, considering the way this administration has treated Israel since Obama took office, it sadly doesn’t. I wouldn’t be surprised if, in the near future, the propoganda doctors start a slow campaign to villify Israel and make any Muslim attack seem justified.
