and they prompted Abbas, the president of the Palestine Authority, to
stretch a hand of brotherhood to Hamas, and to call for talks and
negotiations to re-establish Palestinian unity in the struggle against
the Zionist colonial settler state.
A very welcome move! But one which was critisized right away by Mr.
Obama. Hamas should not have a seat at the negociating table according

I have seen that on Aljazeera English, and I can say that I have never
seen Sa'eb Erekat being so angry (yes! I now have Aljazeera English in
my Cable TV!).
Well, it was not only Barack Obama's speech, but also those by Ms.
Clinton and Mr. McCain, who made clear that there was, is, and will
always be an unshakable support from the White House for the Israeli
colonial settler state. Apparently Arab leaders had hoped that Barack
Obama would change that, and they were disillusioned by his AIPAC
Nontheless, I would like to see B. Obama becoming the next POTUS. And
I would like him to chose somebody else but Ms. Clinton as his
vice-presidential running mate.
