Obama Thanks Morsi for Ceasefire, Hamas Thanks Morsi for Making “Israel Scream with Pain”


I wonder which one of them is on the right track.

President Barack Obama spoke Wednesday to Egypt’s President Morsi thanking him for his efforts to achieve a sustainable ceasefire and for his personal leadership in negotiating a ceasefire proposal.

And it seems like Obama has a developed a bit of a man-crush on Morsi.

 The White House phone log tells part of the tale. Mr. Obama talked with Mr. Morsi three times within 24 hours and six times over the course of several days, an unusual amount of one-on-one time for a president. Mr. Obama told aides he was impressed with the Egyptian leader’s pragmatic confidence. He sensed an engineer’s precision with surprisingly little ideology.

Mr. Obama further told his aides that he sometimes dreams of Mr. Morsi cradling him in his big strong arms.

The Egyptian side was also positive about the collaboration. Essam el-Haddad, the foreign policy adviser to the Egyptian president, described a singular partnership developing between Mr. Morsi, who is the most important international ally for Hamas, and Mr. Obama, who plays essentially the same role for Israel.

Well at least we’re conceding that Morsi is Hamas’ biggest ally. Unfortunately Israel’s biggest ally is also Morsi’s biggest ally and so by extension Hamas’ biggest ally.

You don’t need to be a San Francisco therapist to sense problems coming in this relationship.

And Hamas is meanwhile thanking Obama’s new man-crush for...

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh thanked Egypt and Iran on Thursday for their support in helping make “Israel scream with pain,” he said.

    This is going to go all sorts of wrong. Just what path the wrongness is going to take, is the question.

    I have a feeling ol' Morsi may be collaborating with the Administration to have the Stealth thing going on. At least for now.

    The" Arab Spring" is nothing more than "Chicago Community Organizing" on an International level.

    Obama, you sure fooled a lot of people.

    Not a word of thanks for BiBi and the risk he took especially with the election coming up…why am I not surprised. Obama wants a ME legacy and if he has to lie through his teeth to tie and blindfold BiBi and the Jewish people to do it he will. According to Islam, there are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them. I am ashamed to say the president is adept at both…no other words needed!
