Same Old Democrats?

A letter from Barack Obama to the US representative to the UN Zalmay Khalilzad:

Dear Ambassador Khalilzad,

I understand that today the UN Security Council met regarding the situation in Gaza, and that a resolution or statement could be forthcoming from the Council in short order.

I urge you to ensure that the Security Council issue no statement and pass no resolution on this matter that does not fully condenm the rocket assault Hamas has been conducting on civilians in southern Israel...

All of us are concerned about the impact of closed border crossings on Palestinian families. However, we have to understand why Israel is forced to do this... Israel has the right to respond while seeking to minimize any impact on civilians.

The Security Council should clearly and unequivocally condemn the rocket attacks... If it cannot bring itself to make these common sense points, I urge you to ensure that it does not speak at all.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama
United States Senator


Appalling considering that this opinion on what is happening to Gaza is so far to the right of most of the world's thinking on the region. Not that a single issue would make me vote for or against a particular person, but this really puts the lie to all the Obama supporters who think of him as a real voice for change in our imperialist capital.

This tells that the Americans always elect one who has an oath to continue the war against Islam!

During the war on the Gaza Strip during 2008-2009 over a thousand Palestinians were killed, most of them civilians, and only about 13 Israelis were killed by the "scary" Hamas rockets. Do the math. Then Obama says that we must understand why Israel is doing this. In Palestine, we don't have any terrorist groups. Look up the definition of the word terrorist and its verb terrorize and see who it applies to.
