This Is Who Obama Wants to Talk To?

As Forest Gore, er, I mean Forest Gump, might say, terrorism is as terrorism does. From Debkafile , an Israeli news site I highly recommend for information that does not make it through the MSM filters:

  • Palestinians tell reporters that Hamas locks whole families in their homes from which their gunmen fire. Some of are booby-trapped to blow up Israeli invaders along with those families.
  • Shedding their uniforms, Hamas operatives emerge from bunkers to seize petrol stations and ambulances and grab most of the incoming food and medical aid carried in daily by hundreds of trucks from Israel and Egypt.
  • Their firing stations are located in schools. One huge explosives and weapons arsenal was uncovered next door to Shifa hospital in Gaza City.
  • Hamas terrorists force small children to accompany them on combat missions.
But I'm sure the troubled kids forced by Israeli intransigence to join Hamas will give up such slightly unreasonable tactics when uncle Barack comes to town and soothes their hurt feelings, and gives them the chance to tell him the Israelis started it.

OK, sorry, but I think this is a little "fearmongery" of you. Obama doesn't want to talk to the person in your picture. He wants to talk with leaders of differing organizations. To which I'll ask... what's wrong with opening up dialogue to try to resolve differences?

Sure, many of these differences won't ever be resolved, as the difference and hate are started from a basis of religion...

Perhaps Obama does not want to talk to this particular guy, but he does want to talk to his superiors. The problem with opening a dialogue with terrorists is that they themselves have said that they are not interested in genuine peace. They will use Obama's well intentioned efforts as an opportunity to weaken the support the Israelis have by pretending that Israel is the aggressor. Hamas has an open mission: wipe Israel from the face of the earth. No meaningful conversation can be had until they change their mission; they would also need to make that change tangible.

OK "Posty",
set aside the graphic, which I grabbed in a hurry, and I admit, chose for its inflammatory character. WOuld you care to address the elements of the accusation? What do you think of men who hide behind little children? Deliberately endanger the families they also use as justification for fighting in the first place? Would you say this is more or less despicable than say, parading a prisoner around with panties on his head? Do you actually think there is anything left to say to such barbarians?
And by the way, the only fear I have is that the Israelis will again pull back before they eradicate the problem, and try again to negotiate with evil--that is, if they listen to people like you.

Harold-

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I certainly wouldn't have expected commentary from anyone like you so soon after starting it up. I've been following P&P since earlier in the year during the elections after enjoying your articles at American Thinker.

I look forward to hearing from you in the future!
