NAUSEATING: U.S. Negotiating with HAMAS, Islamic Jihad

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember the U.S. policy of not negotiating with terrorists? Throw that out the window, because the Bush Administration just did.
HAMAS and Islamic Jihad leaders traveled to Egypt, last week, to meet and confer with Egyptian intelligence officials. And guess who just happend to be there also? Condi Clueless’ hand-picked Assistant Secretary of State David Welch. The fish rots from the head first. And the head is George W. Bush, with the next notch being Condoleezza Rice. If John McCain picks her as Veep, he will lose my vote (and I will vote Libertarian). This is nauseating beyond belief:



Clueless Condi Bends over:

HAMAS . . . The New American Partner for “Peace”

Egypt, backed by the United States, is exploring a truce between Israel and Hamas that would stop rocket fire on Israel in exchange for an end to Israeli attacks on militants and the resumption of trade and travel from Gaza. Border crossings have been closed since Hamas seized control of the coastal strip in June.
Militants from Hamas and Islamic Jihad traveled from Gaza to the northern Egyptian city of el-Arish on Thursday to confer with senior Egyptian intelligence officials on a truce. Assistant Secretary of State David Welch also was in Egypt.
The diplomacy appeared to reflect a growing understanding that a peace deal will not be possible as long as Hamas is in control of Gaza and refusing to recognize Israel.

Ya think?
Substitute the word Islam for HAMAS, and the same holds true. The fact that any U.S. official would meet with HAMAS and Islamic Jihad–and we know this isn’t the first time, just the first time it’s been acknowledged publicly–is just the latest slip down the slope.
You’re either on America’s side, or the terrorists’ . . . and the Bush Administration’s side.
You give 8 lives (and countless others beforehand), Condi Clueless takes a mile.

On No!! A Truce!!? How horrible…I hate when violence is put on hold.
Screw the militant factions of the Palestinians, and screw Israel as well, they are nothing more than a drain on our economy. Cheers!!

I don’t believe I’ve seen a statement as clueless as Matt-Man’s verbal excretions.
Anyone with any brains knows that Hudna only means time to rearm to kill more innocents.
It is clear to all that don’t hide from the truth that these groups that hate Israel are our enemies also and ignoring them and especially supporting them and giving them arms almost directly is arming our own enemies. This just empowers AQ their ilk all the more.
So, sweet dreams Matt-Man until your friendly, local Hamas agent threaten your near and dear.

Condi is officially the P.A.’s new b**ch.

As part of the “peace” deal, Israel would be required to end counter-terrorism operations not only in Gaza BUT ALSO the West Bank.
Why include the West Bank? Isn’t that’s Fatah territory. After Hamas successfully enlarged the border area around Israel that they contol by 3 times (Gaza plus N. Sinai now) when they destroyed the Gaza-Egypt border wall, they now have their eyes set on the West Bank. Hamas probably has already positioned a lot of loyalists in the West Bank. All that is needed is for Israel to close their eyes (no more counter-terrorism ops) for a few moments and Hamas can pull the takeover switch.

I suspect the West Bank will be controlled by Hamas in a very short period of time.

Debbie, just a thought. Stop allowing people to leave their name in blue. I went to that matt site and I got the impression that he’s a wine merchant. I could be wrong, I only read the top article he wrote today. Probably being a provocative sphinctor trying to drum up business.

Debbie, Israel has already agreed to a hudna. Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak have issued pro forma denials of an understanding with Hamas but Israel has scaled back military operations in Gaza and has unofficially sanctioned a Hamas presence in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria. Its nauseating of course but you could say Israel’s feckless leaders are as dhimmified and compliant in the face of radical Islam as Condi The Clueless who forced them to accept the arrangement.

John, I am not a wine merchant. I am a truth merchant. I stop by here once in awhile to get a laugh from the religious and political bigotry that thrives on this site.
And, my good man, while it is true that I have one, I am hardly a sphincter. Cheeers!!

As you know, McCain will be in Israel this week. His visit will have to be watched closely for indications of what he might do if elected President.

PS I just read that VP Cheney is also going to the Mideast to urge both parties to adhere to the ‘steps towards peace’. As you said, it is extremely clear that Rice is not acting on her own. There is no doubt that US policy in the Mideast is driven at least in part by Anti-Semitism. Some commentators say that Rice et al just do not have all the facts, and are isolating themselves from some of the facts, but these issues are so clear that no other conclusion is possible.

It would funny if it wasn’t so tragical.

dannygirl on March 10, 2008 at 8:41 pm

It’s all the brotherhood. The scull and bones, which is the Muslim Brotherhood.

I honestly do not forsee John McCain drawing personnel from the Bush Administration for his running mate or any future administration of his. The President isn’t exactly scoring high marks in his approval ratings.
As you know, I kinda like to “think outside the box” and I could see McCain chosing William Cohen as a running mate. The Democrats would have a tough time trashing Cohen given the fact that he served as Sec. of Defense under President Clinton. Plus, given his resume, Cohen offers some nice national security credentials.
Your column showing Bush Administration betrayal of his “war on terra” doesn’t surprise me. The moral clarity of President Bush’s “war on terra” has been eroding gradually since September 2001. I think you’ve done an excellent job of documenting that.

Condi, Baker, and Bushki are anything but “Clueless”, they are committed to the destruction of Israel and the Arab plan for genocide against the Jewish people.
Also…….America’s LOANS (not GRANTS) to Israel are at high rates and less than favourable terms. Restriction on the loans mean that the LOANS must be spent on American products (WELFARE for Boeing and Lockheed?). All in all, Israel’s relationship with the USA is an enormous drain on our economy.

Miluimnik on March 11, 2008 at 10:05 am

Hamas is doing precisely what it was created to do from its inception: Prevent a peace deal.
Condi’s hip to this, and is acting in concert with Hamas and Israel to keep peace from breaking out.
Sometimes things are exactly as they’re supposed to be. Hamas and Fatah are supposed to do Israel’s work, and continue the slow-motion shoah between them (just like Iran/Iraq, and Shias and Sunnis in Iraq) when IDF is idle.
Only ignorant, arrogant FOXbots would think that Condi and the Neocons at State are dopes! Malevolent, treasonous smash-and-grab fks, yes. Dumb? Hardly.
