Obama appeases Palestinians within hours of his talk to AIPAC.
Just hours after Barack Obama promised AIPAC that he would never allow Jerusalem to be divided, he backtracks after pressure from the Palestinians!
No wonder Hamas endorsed him.
al-Reuters reported (they ought to know):
U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama amended his support for Israel’s stance on Jerusalem on Thursday, saying Palestinians and Israelis had to negotiate the future of the holy city.
Palestinian leaders reacted with anger and dismay on Wednesday to Obama saying Jerusalem should be Israel’s undivided capital.
“Well, obviously, it’s going to be up to the parties to negotiate a range of these issues. And Jerusalem will be part of those negotiations,” Obama told CNN when asked whether Palestinians had no future claim to the city…
In Washington on Wednesday, Obama told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobby group, that if elected president in November, he would work for peace with a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
“Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided,” he told the lobby group.

This is unbelievable!
Obama is already siding with the Palestinians over Israel.
Maybe he was reading those church bulletins after all.
