Huh?… Obama Says Israel Should Not Talk To Hamas
More From the Obamapalooza Global Comedy Tour…
My word! This guy is getting hard to keep up with!
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said during a visit to Sderot Wednesday that “Israel should not talk to Hamas as long as it poses a threat to its citizens.”
“If someone was to fire at my house, where my two daughters sleep, I would do everything within my power to stop him and I expect Israel to do the same,” he said.

And, here is what Obama said about meeting with dictators:
QUESTION: In 1982, Anwar Sadat traveled to Israel, a trip that resulted in a peace agreement that has lasted ever since.
In the spirit of that type of bold leadership, would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea, in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries?
OBAMA: I would. And the reason is this, that the notion that somehow not talking to countries is punishment to them — which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration — is ridiculous.
But, at least he gave the Israelis good advice.
