According to columnist David Brooks, who has been talking in his naive boy-scoutish way to Barack Obama, the teflon candidate believes that “the U.S. needs a foreign policy that ‘looks at the root causes of problems and dangers.’ And, again according to Brooks, “Obama compared Hezbollah to Hamas. Both need to be compelled to understand that ‘they’re going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims.’”
By virtue of the distribution of Muslims, who pursue the cause of the Hamas, all over the globe, and strive for its victory, for the reinforcement of its positions and for the encouragement of its Jihad, the Movement is a universal one.
(..) We must imprint on the minds of generations of Muslims that the Palestinian problem is a religious one, to be dealt with on this premise. It includes Islamic holy sites such as the Aqsa Mosque, which is inexorably linked to the Holy Mosque as long as the Heaven and earth will exist, to the journey of the Messenger of Allah, be Allah’s peace and blessing upon him, to it, and to his ascension from it.
"It's conceivable that there are those in the Arab world who say to themselves, 'This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so he's not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy diplomacy as George Bush,'" Obama said in an interview with The Atlantic.
"That's a perfectly legitimate perception as long as they're not confused about my unyielding support for Israel's security," Obama said.
Even as he accepts and understand Hamas, he is speaking out about his support of Israel. Of course, he needs the Jewish vote to be elected. He doesn’t want Hamas to be confused. I doubt they are. Its not very difficult to see where his loyalties lie, as long as you aren’t caught up in the Messianic persona.
A candidate who cannot get elected is being nominated by a party that cannot be defeated, while a candidate who is eminently electable is running as the nominee of a party doomed to defeat.
`We've got to be careful about guilt by association,'' the Democratic presidential candidate said during a town-hall meeting yesterday at a synagogue in Boca Raton, Florida. ``The tradition of the Jewish people is to judge me by what I say and what I've done.'

he felt that Jewish community was too inflexible, and that was why the situation in the Mideast could not be resolved.Creo que la comunidad judío es demasiado inflexible, y que esta es la causa de por qué la cuestión de Oriente Medio no puede ser resuelta.
