Palestinians Man Phone Bank for Obama :eek:
Hamas Terrorists For Obama
We are a group making the U.S. people to elect Senator Obama.
For the past seven months, a group of students and young professionals has gathered nightly to phone U.S. voters and urge them to support Barack Obama in the presidential elections.
This would not be at all unusual were it not for the fact that the callers are Palestinians living in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
The callers are volunteers who meet in a local Internet café or a room at a youth center equipped with computers they use to make their calls.
The group was organized by Ibrahim Abu Jayyeb, a 23-year-old university student, who told The Media Line he is working on behalf of Obama because he is “the kind of person who when he says ‘I will change America,’ [he] will do what he says.”
He also said: “I believe that Barack Obama will achieve peace in the area, in the Middle East and Palestine, between us, the Palestinian people, and the Jewish people.”
A typical phone call monitored by The Media Line went like this:
Gaza: “Hello, how are you? I hope you are fine.”
U.S.: “How may I help you?”
Gaza: “Give me two minutes. I am here, living in the Gaza Strip, in Palestine. As you know, we live here in a miserable situation and we need peace, necessarily.
We are a group making the U.S. people to elect Senator Obama. We think he is a man of peace, so please kindly support us by electing Senator Obama.”
