Obama Talks Peace With Abbas

Posted by Phoenix Woman on November 18, 2008

From AFP via TPM:

US president-elect Barack Obama on Tuesday called Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and vowed to continue pushing Middle East peace efforts, a senior official said.

In their first conversation since the November 4 US elections, Obama also reiterated his strong support for a Palestinian state living alongside Israel, top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat told AFP.

But of course he’s evil and not to be trusted, never ever ever ever.

    Mahmoud Abbas is the guy Bush forced on the Palestinians, leading to the Hamas takeover. He is widely regarded as a US puppet.

    Meeting with Khaled Mashaal might be gutsy.

    By “he”, do you mean Abbas or Obama? The wingnuts would say both are not to be trusted ever ever ever.

  3. MEC: Yes. (See Charles’ comment.)

    Sadly, the wingnuts are the least of Obama’s problems right now. There is no honeymoon for him, because the hatestorm has kicked in full force over Lieberman. Because of that, everything Obama and the Democrats do will, now and forever, be seen in the worst possible light.

    I may have to give up blogging because of it.
