As I posted yesterday, the terror group Hamas has endorsed Barack Obama. They compare Obama to JFK, say they believe he can change America, and believe he has great principles. For most normal people, the endorsement by a terrorist group isn’t something one would tout.
Team Obama, on the other hand, is flattered.
“I like John Kennedy too,” Axelrod said. “That’s about the only thing we have in common with this gentleman from Hamas. We all agree that John Kennedy was a great president, and it’s flattering when anybody says that Barack Obama would follow in his footsteps.”
Er, “gentleman from Hamas”? It’s a terror group, Mr. Axelrod. Michael Goldfarb notes Axelrod’s attempt to tread safely:
Note the slipperiness. Axelrod first distances himself from the “gentleman from Hamas,” but in the next breath he embraces the gentleman/terrorists’ comparison to Kennedy, pronouncing it “flattering.” Only recently Obama declared that “nobody has spoken out more fiercely on the issue of anti-Semitism than I have.” Apparently there’s an exception for when anti-Semites compare Obama to Kennedy. Then all bets are off!
Obama’s church also happened to reprint an article by Hamas on the Mid-East crisis.
By the way, NiceDeb looks into the disturbing trend of terrorist and dictator endorsements of the Messiah. It includes everyone from Castro to FARC. Just think: Our next president may be Castro-approved!
