… POTUS supports Hamas [#is he insane] ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 19th,2014

.. POTUS and his cronies support the so – called Palestinian Unity government . This is one that includes a terrorist group [Hamas] that is completely and thoroughly dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the mass murder of all Israelis . So what do these goonie birds do ? ..

.. they kidnap 3 innocents from the West Bank [Judea and Sumaria] . One of whom is an American citizen .

.. what is Obama thinking ? In particular , giving those bastards financial and any kind of moral support . Most of all , and most galling , is what POTUS is doing is against our law . It prohibits the financial and other support of terrorist groups and whatnot …

Funding Hamas is a direct violation of United States law:

(a) Prohibited Activities.—

(1) Unlawful conduct.— Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).

On Wednesday, a day before the kidnapping, 88 senators sent a bi-partisan letter to the Obama administration demanding that the United States cease its assistance to the government:

Dear Mr. President:

We are appreciative of your Administration’s dedication to achieving a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unfortunately, the recent formation of a Palestinian Authority unity government supported by Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization that has never publicly accepted the Quartet principles, represents a serious setback to efforts to achieve peace. We are gravely concerned that the formation of this government and President Abbas’ renewed effort to upgrade the status of the Palestinians within international organizations will jeopardize direct negotiations with Israel to achieve a two-state solution.

By its actions and inaction, Hamas has demonstrated it is not a partner for peace. Hamas has openly called for Israel’s destruction and last month Hamas leaders again repeated their refusal to meet recognized international demands: recognition of Israel, renunciation of terror, and acceptance of previous Israel-PLO agreements.

Recent events have consequences as to U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority as provided for in the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006 and restrictions contained in the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2014, including prohibiting foreign assistance to Hamas or any power-sharing government of which Hamas is a member or over which Hamas has undue influence. These troubling developments, including the role played by Hamas in the formation of the government, have undermined Congressional support for U.S. assistance to the Palestinians. Any assistance should only be provided when we have confidence that this new government is in full compliance with the restrictions contained in current law. We urge you to continue to impress on President Abbas the need for him to cease any alliance with terrorist organizations such as Hamas and to return to the negotiating table with Israel.

… Israel has Every Right …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 17th,2014

.. to insist on being recognized as a Jewish state .

.. it is not just an issue of being a Jewish state . Making the Arab World in general , and the Palestinians in particular , recognize Israel…. now …. cuts off the argument that the Palestinians have any cause for a Right of Return ….

.. there will be a Jewish state (Israel) and a Palestinian state (Palestine) as indicated in the U.N. Resolution that helped create Israel in 1947 . It will also in effect keep Jews from living in Palestinian territory and non – Israeli Palestinian Arabs from living in Israel .

.. I hope and pray that PM Netanyahu holds his ground . POTUS and JohnBoy Kerry are trying to bully him , and he is having nothing of it …
