Why did Obama broker a victory for Hamas?
PowerLine ^ | November 25, 2012 | Paul Mirengoff

Posted on 11/25/2012 7:46:22 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

With unusual candor, the Washington Post declares in its top headline that “Hamas’ tactics garner support” and that “Palestinians see path to victory through fighting.” This strengthening of Hamas is the entirely predictable consequence of the cease fire that the Obama administration worked to impose on Israel. Because Hamas waged war against Israel and the Israelis backed down, it is (to quote) the Post “the commonly held view in both territories (the West Bank and Gaza) that the Islamist militants of Hamas — who refuse to recognize Israel — defeated their enemy, and that they did it with weapons, not words.”

Since this consequence flows so naturally from he U.S. arranged cease fire, it is very difficult to believe that the U.S. did not intend it. But the Post does not even consider this possibility (its candor has limits). Instead the Post suggests that Israel wanted to strengthen Hamas at the expense of the Palestinian Authority, which looks increasingly irrelevant following Hamas’ victory. The notion is that Israel will find it easier to avoid making peace with Hamas.

However, the Israelis are fixated on Iran, not the PA. Stengthening Hamas strengthens Iran’s hand. So it is highly unlikely that Israel would have handed Hamas victory had the U.S. not applied pressure.

But why does Obama want to strengthen Hamas? Probably because he views it, not unreasonably, as the authentic and rising voice of Palestinian aspirations...

Well, let's look at the outcome.

Israel was well on its way to destroying Hamas's ability to continue to be the aggressor. Now they have a reprieve and can rearm with Iran's help.

Hitler killed six million Jews. Obama doesn’t want that record to stand for another four years.

There is one other possibility. Israel is going to hit Iran soon, but first they had to weaken Hamas.

Well, supporting Hamas IS the Democrat thing to do:

Finally after months of hammering away it is beginning to sink in. We have been taken over by the communists and the way out looks very bleak. Our very laws that protected us were broken down and used against us. What is the way back, you tell me and the millions that were true to our fore fathers and the Constitution.

Why? Because Oberreichfuhrer 0bama loves Islamists and hates America and Israel.

That was an easy one.

Obama’s career, including his Occidental, Columbia and Harvard sojorns have been funded by the Saudis, who fund the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas. Those who paid attention, before the media were fully engaged, recall Percy Sutton, an honest attorney, who defended Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, The Muslim Brotherhood, and lots of others, not all connected with Black Nationalism. He told us, when he was too old and distinguished to be muffled by Axelrod’s henchmen, about his call from Khalid al-Mansour, Alwaleed bin-Talal’s US legal representative, asking for help in getting bin-Talal’s ward, Barack, into Harvard Law. al-Mansour made it clear that money was no issue because of bin-Talaal’s wealth. Harvard got a twenty million dollar donation from bin-Talal and Barry was into Harvard Law, and "President", not "editor" which is functional and requires actual writing, where "president" is an honorary appointment, of The Law Review.

This is not rumor. Khalid al-Mansour was a leftest Black Nationalist since the late 60s, a Boalt Hall grad, and a founder of the Black Panthers. He has spent thirty five years spending Saudi money to recruit Wahhabi jihadists. He is the organizer of funding for Wahhabi mosques in the US. Obama has been subsidized by the Saudi family for most of his life. Bin-Talal is the largest external fund-er of FOX News and the WSJ through News Corp. His (our) money is fed through a large number of our major corporations and banks - Cisco, Apple, Citibank, Oracle, ...

Both parties have played the game and both are complicit. While the Saudis don't own all of us, they own the executive, judicial, and military branches, not to mention, through crony capitalism, many of our legislators. Why do you think Obama restricts oil drilling our waters? For his Saudi clients our dependence is important, because we are their protection.

We have no longer a representative republic because both parties have rendered our elections systems a joke. We don't have elections. A group of leaders decides what election results to report and the media dutifully analyzes the often ridiculous numbers they provide. In fact controlling those numbers is a useful propoganda tool. How often do you hear "69% of US Jews voted for Obama"? That helps to discourage upper middle class Jews who are afraid all their friends are the idiots the voting claims suggest. The lie is shown by Haaratz' poll showing that around 85% of US Jews living in Israel voted for Romney. These US Jews are from the same communities as those voting in Israel, but, but whatever reason, corrupting the absentee ballots of Israeli Jews must not have been possible. Voting in the US has no meaning, and cannot, because we have completely eliminated audit trails from our voting, by agreement with both parties. About 30 years ago a Republican raised the voter fraud issue resulting in an injuction, in effect to day, issued by a Carter apppointee, who comes out of retirement to keep it current, forbidding montiory by Republicans of precincts were any hint of racial bias might play a role - all precincts!

Let me suggest that we all join the Democrat party. It makes no difference so ar as votes are concerned because the systems is entirely controlled by politically appointed judges and votes are counted by opaque machines and the SEIU. By becoming Democrats we may have some influence which we will never have, probably because the Republicans have played along. They insured the McCain was a nominee, initiating two Senate bills in 2008 to pretend he was eligible. He was probably a party to this fraud, but we'll never prove it. With Obama in office, and the well-organized Marxists running elections, we had no elections, and will not until there are unlikely major changes in our voting systems. Become a Democrat. Republicans are probably intentionally dense, because their presence maintains the ruse that we have a two party system, and the Republicans make a good living being the symbolic opposition.

Many of us, possibly even the numerical majority, still favor a representative republic, but will never see one without major reform. Republicans won't address the ridiculous sieve, the guaranteed lack of verifiability of our voting systems, rather like they dismissed the Constitutional eligibility issue, an issue Democrats addressed with energy and legal clarity when they proved that McCain was ineligible between 2005 and 2008. Then, when Obama was in the paddock, and McCain could silence eligibility questions, they turned around and and tried to pass Senate Bill 2678 (Obama/McCaskill) to make McCain eligible. That bill failed so McCaskill went back, two months later, April 2008, with Senate Resolution 511. They understand ignorance. Republicans will never win an election Democrats don't want them to win. Become a Democrat and make a difference.

Their goal was power; they have it and are not about to let it go. We cannot win any election they want to fix. Better to join their party and make change from within.

And as a bonus, Obama got the chance to elevate that Muslim Brotherhood neo-Nazi Morsi as a mediator in the region.

Because.......odumbi can give ‘em food stamps, disability checks, unemployment checks, because he has a printing press, but.....he can’t print oil. If there is a closure of the Persian Gulf and Saudi Oil fields are sabotaged and North Sea Oil and other oil fields are hit by islamic terrorist......there will be no gasoline. The trucks will not be able to haul food to the cities......and all of odumbi’s homies will have to eat their checks.

Those little pieces of paper dont taste good nor do they sustain life. In a few days, the cities would be up in smoke and fire.

So odumbi had to make sure Israel kept its nukes cool. How did he do it? That what I want to know, what he said to Netanyahu....got any ideas? Have you heard anything?
