Hamas agrees with Jews who worry about Obama

Jews and other in the pro-Israel community who have serious misgivings about Senator Obama's stand on Israel's security aren't crazy. Obama supporters minimize the concerns about  the candidates choice of Israel- bashing advisors, unscripted statements calling for more painful concessions by Israel (while it is undergoing the pain of daily attacks on its civilains), and affinity for Israel haters. They claim that some neurotically paranoid, war-mongering, and biased Jews are reacting only to his name-Hussein.

Now we know that we are not the only ones who interpret Obama's record and rhetoric as anti-Israel. Hamas, the terrorist organization whose charter commits it to the violent destruction of all Jews and Islamic dominion over every inch of the Middle East, agrees that Obama is their man.

Carl Cameron reports that in an interview on WABC radio Sunday, top Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said the terrorist group supports Obama's foreign policy vision.

"We don't mind-actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance."

The Hamas endorsement, of course, heightens anxiety over the existential threat to Israel under a President Obama, but at least we know we are not crazy!
