يارب يسوع المسيح ابن اللّه الحيّ إرحمني أنا الخاطئ

Oh well, so much for peace

If anyone thought the next US President might offer change you can believe in, they were obviously sucked in by a lot of empty rhetoric.

Hat-tip to Sam PF for this one.

Barack Obama has pledged unwavering support for Israel in his first foreign policy speech since declaring himself the Democratic nominee for president.

He told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac), a prominent lobbying group, that Israel’s security was “sacrosanct” and “non-negotiable”.

Mr Obama told Aipac real security came from lasting peace in the Middle East – and he would work from the start of his administration to achieve a Palestinian state alongside an Israeli one, but with Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel – a comment rejected by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

    I heard a clip of this speech on the radio. This is what American candidates for president have to say to be elected. I’m just afraid that Obama might be selling his soul for the White House, and the exchange could never be worth it.

    People Power Granny is already disappointed with Barack Obama’s position of promising to not negotiate with Hamas in the Middle East, if he is elected president. Do you think that Hamas should be negotiated with, as former President Carter has done? Vote in my poll at my blog so I know what you think.
