Obama: "I'll Suck Up To Israel With The Best Of Them"
"WASHINGTON (AFP) - Democratic hopeful Barack Obama said Wednesday that as president he would do his utmost to help Israel defend itself from any regional threat, as he criticized ex-president Jimmy Carter for seeking to meet with Hamas.
"As president, I will do everything that I can to help (Israel) protect itself ... We will make sure that it can defend itself from any attack, whether it comes from as close as Gaza or as far as Tehran," Obama told a synagogue in Philadelphia, according to his campaign aides.
He said US-Israeli cooperation, although successful, "can be deepened and strengthened."
Obama, who has said he would meet with US enemies Iran and Cuba if elected president, criticized Carter's expected meeting Wednesday in Cairo with Hamas, stressing: "Hamas is not a state, Hamas is a terrorist organization."
No, Obama, Hamas is the duly elected Palestinian government that wasn't favored by the ziofascists. Because the Palestinian people elected them Israel has used savage collective punishment on them in a bid to force Hamas from office. Change? You're nothing but another zionist shill. You support the bloodsoaked murderers in this endeavor, Obama? Of course you do, you have to.
"The sources said there was recognition that such an operation would be extremely costly, both in terms of soldiers and Palestinians killed. Nevertheless, the operation is being considered out of a widespread sense that the current situation in the Gaza Strip cannot continue festering indefinitely."
Sort of like the Sabra and Chatila slaughter, only this time the Israelis will do it themselves instead of just handling logistics.
