    Unbelievable.

    Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi sent his foreign minister to Gaza to declare their open support for the Hamas terrorists who have fired 700+ rockets into Israel in the past several days.

    Morsi himself, at Friday prayers, and at several other moments, warned that "the price will be high" if Israel "continues the aggression."

    Obama responded by calling Morsi and thanking him for his efforts in calming the fighting, and asked if he would be willing to broker a peace deal between Hamas (which charter states as a founding principle the goal of destroying all Jews) and Israel (which has half of all the world's Jews inside its borders).

    [full text citation from Reuters link]

    "U.S. President Barack Obama called Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday to commend the country's efforts to help calm the situation in Israel and Gaza and underscored his hope of restoring stability there, the White House said. Egypt's prime minister, Hisham Kandil, has said Cairo is prepared to mediate a truce in the growing violence between Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip. Egypt's government is allied with Hamas, but is also party to a 1979 peace treaty with Israel."

    Is Obama really this clueless, or what?


    Yes. Yes, he is.

    What is scary is that I think POTUS knows exactly what he's doing.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    It's possible, but I suspect that Obama sees Israel as a colonial state, and the Muslim Brotherhood as an indigenous anti-colonial movement, rather than an arm of Islamic imperialism that goes back to Mohammed.

    Scary as he seems to think of our long time ally, the UK, as another colonial power. I wonder if he's just absolutely uninformed and doesn't care about "details", you know those devil in the details thing, or if he truly is pushing for the Islamists and the brotherhood to triumph. There has been so much said about his being a Muslim, but sometimes I wonder if the people on the far, far right just might be correct.

    I imagine Morsi waited for our $2 billion dollar check to clear before he shot his mouth off.

    If the US got involved, I'm still not convinced Obama won't order our military to intervene on behalf of Hamas.
    Be Not Afraid.

    You got a story link on this? I've been wondering just what size checks lady Klinton wrote to who so she could make her claims to fame.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    2016 is going to cost the taxpayers a bundle. Maybe she wants one of those Nobel Peace Prizes for convincing the Israelis to accept that ceasefire so the Palestinians can regroup and get more weapons shipped to them. Color me cynical.
