ANTI ISRAEL Obama Makes It Possible For PLO Flag to Fly in Washington D.C.
Palestinian terrorists burn Israeli and American flags during a demonstration outside the Palestinian parliament in Gaza City July 17, 2007.
The United States State Department has announced to the Palestinian Authority/Palestinian Liberation Organization Mission representative in the United States that its status will be upgraded from a 'bureau' to that of a "general delegation' and that this change will allow the office in which the representation is situated to fly the PLO, now also the Palestine Authority, flag at its entrance.
The upgrading, besides allowing the flag to be flown, also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity, although it is not equal to embassy status.
The PLO's chief representative in the United States, Maen Areikat, said that this step makes the PLO's status in the United States equivalent to its status in Canada and many western European countries.
Israeli Radio reported that sources in Prime Minister Netanyahu's office said that the Prime Minister knew of the planned step and did not object to it. . Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem claimed that the step was taken to strengthen Abu Maazen and try to get him to agree to direct talks with Israel. However, they expressed dissapointment that the White House did not make ceasing the PA's anti Israel incitement a condition for the status upgrade.
Wild Thing's comment........
"also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity"
Imagine the possibilities of a terrorist organization that enjoys diplomatic immunity, e.g. the PLO. Imagine what you could smuggle into this country in diplomatic bags, which means stuff that could blow up, or stuff that could make you sick. So when car bombs start going off in American cities we'll have no one to arrest and prosecute.

Hell, obama also flew the Red Chinese flag over the White House. He hates America so much that he is going to rub our noses in shit while he tries to destroy us.

Excellent observation, Wild Thing.
How long before a suicide bombing from a diplomatic bag on a D.C. Metro bus or subway train kills dozens of innocent passengers.
Israelis live under this threat every day, and with this current Washington leadership in denial, this could very well happen when such an attack brought here within the homeland and the loss of innocent life finally wakes up Americans to this real and potential threat.

Now he's giving known Terrorists Diplomatic Status. and immunity. This is brand new for the PlO, So when a PLO Terrorist sets off a bomb at an Israeli Mall, the PlO diplomat can give an official denial. And when Israel strikes back, the PlO diplomat can go right to obama and protest.
Hopefully Prime Minister Netanyahu will chase these dickweed out of Gaza and Jerusalem.
What does this mean to Israel? And the so called vote in the Senate to support Israel a month ago sure rings hallow now.
