** Now they know how we feel back here in America! **
Haaretz News reported this morning on Speaker Pelosi’s diplomatic disaster:
…The Prime Minister’s Office on Wednesday strongly denied that Israel relayed a message to Syria via Pelosi, accepting its calls to renew peace negotiations.
The bureau responded to questions raised Wednesday by a statement Pelosi made following her meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad. Pelosi said she had relayed a message from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, to the effect that Israel was ready for peace talks with Syria.
The Prime Minister’s Office was quick to issue a denial, stating that “what was discussed with the House speaker did not include any change in Israel’s policy, as it has been presented to international parties involved in the matter.”
In a special statement of clarification, the bureau stressed that Olmert had told Pelosi that Israel continued to regard Syria as “part of the axis of evil and a party encouraging terrorism in the entire Middle East.”
According to sources at the Prime Minister’s Office, “Pelosi took part of the things that were said in the meeting, and used what suited her.”
The Washington Post was more direct on the Speaker’s shameful diplomatic disaster:
HOUSE SPEAKER Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered an excellent demonstration yesterday of why members of Congress should not attempt to supplant the secretary of state when traveling abroad. (Ouch!) After a meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, Ms. Pelosi announced that she had delivered a message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that “Israel was ready to engage in peace talks” with Syria. What’s more, she added, Mr. Assad was ready to “resume the peace process” as well. Having announced this seeming diplomatic breakthrough, Ms. Pelosi suggested that her Kissingerian shuttle diplomacy was just getting started. “We expressed our interest in using our good offices in promoting peace between Israel and Syria,” she said.
Only one problem: The Israeli prime minister entrusted Ms. Pelosi with no such message. “What was communicated to the U.S. House Speaker does not contain any change in the policies of Israel,” said a statement quickly issued by the prime minister’s office. In fact, Mr. Olmert told Ms. Pelosi that “a number of Senate and House members who recently visited Damascus received the impression that despite the declarations of Bashar Assad, there is no change in the position of his country regarding a possible peace process with Israel.” In other words, Ms. Pelosi not only misrepresented Israel’s position but was virtually alone in failing to discern that Mr. Assad’s words were mere propaganda.
How do you spell Terrorist T-O-O-L?
Maybe Pelosi will now understand that her liberal “media pass” will not necessarily follow her on her shameful international diplomatic missions to undercut the current Administration.
Of course, all is not lost…
Islamic Jihad, Hamas, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, and Hezbollah all endorsed the Speaker’s brave trip to Damascus!
UPDATE: And, now World Net Daily has the audio of the terror group leaders endorsing Pelosi.
The Speaker looks a bit out of her game in Saudi Arabia today.
Fausta says a pawn is a pawn.
