Obama/Hillary Visibly Tilting Towards Terrorist Fatah Over Israel

By WILLIAM MAYER and BEILA RABINOWITZ

March 5, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - While Iran convened a conference declaring its support of Hamas, the Obama foreign policy amateur hour descended on Israel.

At a joint press conference held in Ramallah with Mahmoud Abbas leader of Arafat's Fatah Party, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly criticized the Israeli decision to go forward with an archeological project which will require the demolition of a number of homes in East Jerusalem.

Clinton's criticism was pointed, ""Clearly this kind of activity is unhelpful and not in keeping with the obligations entered into under the road map."

In the run up to Clinton's visit John Kerry, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee met with Iranian backed Syrian dictator Assad who - surprise - now claims to be interested in direct talks with the Jewish state.

The controversy that the Obama administration inserted itself into is central to the question of whether Muslim radicals will be allowed to determine the ultimate fate of Jerusalem, something so-far resisted by Israeli politicians.

Kerry's leaden diplomacy, Clinton's unhelpful public meddling in the Jerusalem question combined with this administration's decision on Monday to kick in nearly $1 billion in aid to Hamas controlled Gaza should give great pause for concern among American Jews who voted in such large numbers for an administration which has now by every conceivable measure tilted towards the Palestinian radicals.
