Barack strikes out after promising swings at the plate

Reader comment on item: Obama's Failed Middle East Speech

Submitted by daveinboca (United States), May 21, 2011 at 02:19

When I consider the "gratitude" and common sensical response of the Palestinians to Israel's withdrawal from Gaza [/sarc], I have to admit that Obama has fallen under the influence of Rashid Khalidi, whom I knew during his time as prof at U.of Chicago while I was an Entry Strategy Executive at Amoco. Rashid must have really put the arm on his buddy Obama and political hack Donilon & pro-Arab Samantha Powers may have done an end run around Hillary.

And shame on Hillary if she agrees with Obama's repudiation of three decades of US policy guarantees to Israel, including UNSC 242 & 338, and a joint vote in Congress to uphold the security of Israel's borders in 2004.
