Jay Sekulow’s Response about Obama siding with terrorists over Israel

May 19, 2011

Today, President Obama delivered an unprecedented rebuke of the Israeli people by an American president. In words that were designed to reach more Muslim citizens than United States citizens, Obama called Israel’s legitimate West Bank settlements an “occupation”; and by calling for a return to the 1967 borders, he is calling for a divided Jerusalem. He continued to press Israel to negotiate with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and, subsequently, with the “Unity Government” the PA has formed with the terrorist group, Hamas.



If there was ever any question about the intent of those whom President Obama expects Israel to negotiate with, this week’s news report gives a clear answer: “A member of the Palestinian Authority parliament spelled out his organization’s vision for the genocidal annihilation of the Jewish people … [giving] Arabs ‘the honor’ of annihilating ‘the evil of this gang.'”


While President Obama may not recognize the threat a terrorist-run Palestinian government poses to Israel, we do and we’re taking action. The ACLJ is stepping up its efforts to defend Israel in the diplomatic and legal war being waged by Hamas.

I am now en route to Washington, D.C., to personally lead our legislative team’s work with Congress to prevent U.S. tax dollars from going to the terrorist-run government and to coordinate our work at the United Nations (U.N.) to prevent the U.N. from recognizing the Palestinian Authority as an independent nation. I have also assembled a special senior legal team that will be in Israel to work in conjunction with Israeli officials on our legal efforts.


President Obama’s disconnect from the facts on the ground in the Middle East is obvious. News reports show that the Hamas terrorist group has “not given Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas permission to negotiate with Israel,” and now he all but abandons Israel in favor of giving in to the demands of terrorists.

Even members of President Obama’s own party have recognized that we cannot support the Palestinian Authority now that the terrorist organization, Hamas, has joined the “Unity Government.” Twenty-seven Democratic Senators have sent a letter urging President Obama to defund the new terrorist-run government.

Hamas continues to refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist, emphatically stating that it will stick with its “plan of resistance and not negotiations.” How can President Obama demand that Israel negotiate with an organization that continues to utilize terrorism against it? It’s absurd.


If President Obama will not defend Israel and continues to tell them to negotiate with terrorists, we must take a stand.

It is abundantly clear that as long as Hamas is a part of the Palestinian government, there can be no peaceful solution in the Middle East. We must not allow American funds to be used to support this terrorist-run government, nor can we allow

Israel to be pressured into negotiating with terrorists.

ACLJ Chief Counsel

Being an American, I stand with the U.S.A. as does President Obama. He’s doing his job and trying to do it well in an area where that’s nigh onto impossible.

But it’s no surprise those who profit from the ongoing theft of Palestinians’ lands abhor this fair proposal. They fear peace and settled boundaries because they stand to gain so much from unsettled boundaries where they can keep on grabbing land.
