SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Monday backed the Bush administration's policy of shunning contact with the Islamic militants of Hamas in its Middle East peace diplomacy.
The Illinois senator has said he would break with President George W. Bush's stance of declining to talk to some other international adversaries but that stance does not apply to Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip and is committed to the destruction of Israel.
RLCC: People say things from which they will back away once they stop being treated as subhuman.
Also, why is Hamas a terrorist group while the French Resistance during WWII was not?
The Palestinians had their land stolen by force. They've been bullied for more than sixty years. The Israelis have admitted that if any nation were doing to them what they are doing to the Palestinians, they too would fight back. Think about it.
