Ari Yashar, writing in Arutz Sheva, tells us:
The Hamas terrorist group was present as the Palestinian Authority (PA) unity government held its first full cabinet meeting on Thursday in Gaza, and according to the White House it was a "positive step."
"The only way to have a long-term sustainable solution for Gaza is for the Palestinian Authority to assume full authority in Gaza," US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said Thursday. "So we support this interim technocratic government in its efforts and we view this meeting as a positive step in that direction."
"Interim technocratic government" is dishonest Obama-Gibberish for an Arab government that includes Hamas.
So, yet again, the Obama administration believes that there are good Islamists like Hamas and the Brotherhood and bad Islamists like Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The difference is that the bad Islamists do not really represent much of a threat to Americans until such a time as Iran gives them nuclear weaponry. The good Islamists are primarily interested in harming Jews and eliminating Israel and despite this (because of it?) the Obama administration is happy to see them join with Fatah.
In my opinion, Israel would be absolutely crazy to negotiate with any government that contains Islamists, period. And for the Obama administration to insist upon any such negotiations is a direct betrayal not only of the State of Israel, but of Jewish people around the world.
The Obama administration just never fails to disappoint.
Meanwhile, we also read this:
Hamas leader Khalil al-Haya insisted that Hamas "would not abandon its weapons" on Saturday, boasting that the group is allegedly closer to defeating "the Israeli entity and its leaders" more than ever.That is what the Obama administration is defending and insisting that Israel negotiate with and it is fully consistent with his racist view that Jews should not be allowed to live in Judea.
"We say to those who brought the Jews [to Israel] from all over the world, we are now confident and believe more than ever in the implementation of the promise of Allah - that we will not keep you [Jews] in our country," Al-Haya threatened. "The option available to you is to leave the country for its native residents [Palestinian Arabs]."
Hamas is a genocidal organization that the Obama government has saved on at least two recent occasions from the full measure of Israeli reprisals. The truth, of course, is that Hamas should be eliminated entirely and Israel could do the job, but for the fact that neither Barack Obama, nor the EU, nor the UN has any patience for Jewish self-defense.
Jews are expected to get kicked in the head and like it.
