UN Envoy to Middle East Maintained Hamas Contacts

And he probably isn’t the only one. There is a high likelihood that the Obama Administration has its own contacts with Hamas.

The United Nations envoy to the Middle East acknowledged Sunday that he has maintained quiet contacts with the Islamist group Hamas for “years,” despite the international community’s policy to isolate the group.

In an interview with McClatchy, Robert Serry described his office’s contacts with Hamas, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007, as “quiet engagements” and said his office was now “hoping to help the parties get to a more durable solution”.

“Because we are on the ground we have our informal contacts with Hamas. How could we not?” he said. “We also have our quiet engagements with Hamas to work for a calm. In the last years I have been working to pass on messages to Hamas.”

One wonders what was in those messages.

    Is there NO limit to the DECEIT the US Government, UN and EU is engaged in? They have given these Mad Men, Terrorists and Thugs Legitimacy. One can only hope when the dog turns it will bite it's masters FIRST. Why don't they just admit they are all cowards, traitors, and in league with the Devil? How do we fight this when the very power that are sworn to protect and defend freedom and justice and the unjust driving us to bondage? I Pray to G-d for an answer. The governments of mankind on this earth have failed to teach and protect your children Father. When will the multitudes cry out ABBA, we can't do this alone?

    Either the Serry guy is a Useless Idiot like former MP John Manley of the NDP (in Canada), or he really is a deliberate problem.

    I've got a foolproof plan to ensure Hamas never bothers anyone again. It will last forever, guaranteed.

    What about Robert Malley and Sandy Berger? What about Carter and the Clintons? We can' be surprised at all. The real question is why aren't more Americans ANGRY?!
