US: Palestinian deal 'internal' matter
United States remains on sidelines over deal signed between Hamas, Fatah to end long-running discord between rival Palestinian movements. Says it is an internal affair
An internal matter? This is just so typical of the Obama administration. Like the progressive-left more generally, the Obama administration cannot find it within itself to stand up to the rise of radical Islam, even as the European Union welcomes them with open arms.
The European Union offered qualified support Monday, saying it considered Palestinian reconciliation and elections as important steps toward an eventual Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
So, the EU thinks that it's necessary to bring a Jihadi group, with an historical provenance that goes to Nazi Germany, into the negotiations with Jews? Oh, that makes terrific sense.
Meanwhile the Obama administration has nothing whatsoever to say beyond the facile and worthless observation that it is an "internal" Palestinian matter. Actually, I am not so certain that it is merely an internal Palestinian matter. If the Palestinians wish to be represented, at least in part, by modern day Nazis, this should be of interest to Jewish people everywhere.
Part of the problem that we have, clearly, is that the Obama administration does not consider radical Islam a problem for if they do so then they would oppose a Hamas-Fatah unity government.
But they don't.
