Charles Krauthammer: Obama Has Shifted American Sympathies in the Middle East

Barack Obama called the increasingly tense environment in the Mideast "unsustainable" Wednesday and said Israel needs a "better approach" in blockaded Gaza that would satisfy security and humanitarian needs.

Turning his attention to the troubled region as he welcomed Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to the White House for talks.

Obama would not allow any photos taken of him with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he came to the White House for a visit in March.


In response to President Obama’s photo-op and handshake with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Charles Krauthammer says, “Obama has shifted and reversed American sympathies in that region.” Krauthammer pointed out that just a few months ago Obama wouldn’t even allow a picture of himself to be taken with the Prime Minister of Israel. Krauthammer called it “an unbelievable contrast.”

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama bows to Abbas and Islam. No room in the Inn for Israel.

To Obama it is always Israel that needs a "better approach". Obama has made it crystal clear that he expects Israel to commit national suicide.

It is so horrible to have a president that is the enemy of our country and seeks to destroy it.

There is no doubt what obama's intentions are, that is to destroy the U.S. and Israel in favor of the Islamic Terrorism and the Caliphate.

Israel is being thrown under that enormous obama bus. The encourages Israel's enemies and makes the MiddleEast and the world more dangerous.

Something like three hundred million dolalare were channeled into Obama's campaign from sources that could not be traxed. I think that we can see tha hand of national wealth behind Obama's election. We now see the march of technological progress confronting Obama now. He will be desperate before 2011. That bloges like this one can exchange imfomation beter than than three networks could in the sixties is saving us.
