White House concludes ‘no real value in keeping Hamas in power’

Their new slogan? “Spreading ‘democracy at will’.” Just as an employer would terminate an employee at will, so does this administration terminate democracies.
Sources close to the administration said that policymakers in the White House . . . have now concluded that there is no real value in keeping Hamas in power. Hamas is not making any significant effort to moderate and act pragmatically, administration officials recently told Washington insiders. The Hamas government's support of continued terrorism against Israel — whether it is the launching of home-made rockets from Gaza, the kidnapping of Israelis or suicide attacks against Israel — is viewed by the administration as intolerable and therefore as justification for decisive Israeli action, sources said.

"In the war against terror, in 9/11 there was a line drawn. As far as this administration is concerned, you get our support if you're on the right side of the line, and you don't if you're on the wrong side," said Aaron Miller, a former senior State Department negotiator on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

A line was drawn on 9/11. Where have I heard that before?


"Some moments define who you are. This is one of them."

* * *
From national networks to small-town newspapers, the view that AMERICA'S TERRIBLE TASTE OF TERRORISM will finally DO AWAY WITH EVEN MODEST CALLS for the restraint of Israel's military attacks on Palestinian towns has become an instant, unshakable axiom.

* * *

It's a short step to a catch-all defense of any action taken in the name of quashing terrorism.

The syllogism is already impossible to challenge, says Bennis: "If you don't allow us to use F-16s against refugee camps, if you don't let us demolish homes, if you don't permit us to detain people without charges forever, WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER WORLD TRADE CENTER-PENTAGON ATTACK."

BACK to the future . . .

In addition, administration officials said that they understand the domestic Israeli pressure on Olmert to act decisively. The fear, sources told the Forward, is that American efforts to restrict Israrel's reaction to Hamas-sponsored terrorism could hasten the fall of Olmert's government and lead to the demise of his plans for an Israeli withdraw from large parts of the West Bank.

The administration is deeply concerned that developments in Gaza — whether a continued standoff or a massive Israeli military campaign — could lead to a humanitarian crisis. Earlier this week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called her Israeli counterpart, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, to urge her to take action to prevent a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Israeli and American sources said. The next day, Israel sent truckloads of food — including flour, corn, oil, meat, fruit and milk— as well as fuel and natural gas into Gaza. A shipment of medicines was delayed because it was not deemed urgent by the Red Cross, according to a statement by the Israeli military spokesman. Israel keeps contact with representatives of international organizations to assess the vital needs of Gaza's civilian population.

How compassionate. Too bad, it's not sincere.

The Israeli military's efforts to avoid injury to Gaza's civilian population has helped Jerusalem secure relatively sympathetic coverage for Israel in the American press. Unlike the European media, America's major news organizations have not given daily front page coverage to the drama in Gaza since the abduction of the Israeli corporal, even as Israel moved tanks and infantry forces into Gaza, bombed military, political and infrastructure targets, and left more than 100,000 Palestinians without electricity.

How obedient.
Overall the coverage in the United States was positive, said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, a public relations expert who heads The Israel Project, an organization devoted to improving Israel's image in the media. Laszlo Mizrahi specifically cited editorials in the Washington Post and The New York Times, which squarely held Hamas responsible for the current escalation.

Advocates for Israel in Washington were gratified. Only two weeks ago, one of them said with deep concern that as a result of several unintended Israeli killings of Palestinian civilians in Gaza, the big public relations boost that Israel enjoyed when it withdrew from Gaza last year would be obliterated. That has not happened.

"What we found is that almost every story [in the American media] points out the most important fact, which is that Israel left all of Gaza," Laszlo Mizrahi said. "It's important to refresh people's memory; our polls show that 94% of America's opinion elite know that Israel left Gaza and by a ten-to-one margin they feel better about Israel as a result," she said.

David Segal, the chief spokesman for Israel's embassy in Washington, agreed.

"In general, the U.S. press has been understanding and supportive of Israel's objective of rescuing Gilad Shalit and to make sure that this kind of outrage never happens again," he said.

Polling America's 'elite' and scanning the MSM is a lousy way to gauge 'how Americans feel about Israel.' If they want to know how Americans feel about Israel, they should spend a few hours online.
Still, according to Israeli officials, pro-Israel activist and Middle East experts in Washington, support for Israel in the administration and the American public may erode as the conflict between Israel and Hamas escalates.

The administration may object to Israeli moves that could have regional impact, such as an attack on Syrian territory, Miller said.

Israel contends that Hamas leaders in Damascus are responsible for the June 25 cross-border attack in which Shalit was kidnapped. "If an Israeli action threatens to tip the situation to the point where it escalates mutually, and it impacts negatively on some of the things that the administration does care about in the region, then you'd see a much more interested administration and a much more serious reaction," Miller said.

The American envoy to the United Nations, John Bolton, called on Syrian authorities to arrest Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, who is based in Damascus. Bolton dismissed comparisons between the kidnapping and Israel's response.

"There is no moral equivalency to, on the one hand, deliberate attacking of civilians, taking lives, taking hostages versus the inadvertent and highly unfortunate civilian deaths that occur when a country exercises its right to self-defense," he said June 30, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. "Those are not the same act, they are not motivated for the same reasons, they do not carry the same moral weight."

Read it and weep. This guy represents US before the UN.

"Democracy" and "Communism" are just EMPTY NAMES.

For those of you who are history buffs (the real kind, not propaganda), you will find out that both "camps" came from the SAME "source", which is often referred to as the Rothschild family/"international bankers"/money-changers/"jews", or just simply the Ashkenazi, which came from a land known as Khazaria, between the two seas.

Research it!

You'll also find out that the "Communist Manifesto", i.e. Karl Marx author, was "jewish", but the really interesting thing was this -------------- he was ordered to write it none other than by the AskeNazis (the Rothschild family). In fact, the author of the 'book' was NOT disclosed until decades AFTER his death. Not only did they START/SET-UP the "central bank" (i.e. "fractional lending" scam), in countries all over the world, they used the "red" or "communist threat" to manipulate the populace, just like how OBL and "Ai Quaida" is used today (note that Ai Quaida is the term invented by 'jews'/askenazis.

In fact, the Czar of Russia, refused, and his family was slaughtered in the "Boshelvik revolution" against the 'whites' (i.e. royalty), which over 10 million russians were slaughtered by the "jewish" lead "revolution" with Stalin (another "jew") as their leader, endorsed, funded, and orchestrated by the Ashkenazis and Rothschild family --- this family is TERRIBLY RICH (i.e. compared to Bill Gates, makes him look like a "beggar", yes, seriously, research in how much "money laundering" is done by way of "central banks" owned by private 'families').

Now, why do you think there are so many "jews" in Russia ----------- here's a hint for you, the land where the Ashkenazis originated from is now in present day Russia (as it has for the last several hundred years), and it's NOT Palestine/Israel, but KHAZARIA.

Didn't you guys NOTICED how the so-called "jews" are all WHITE. And the Arabs and people in Palestine/Middleast/N.E. Africa/Saudi Arabia/Persia/India/Eqypt --- the SAME ethnic racial group which of been there for THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of years are BROWN/DARK OLIVE/BLACK SKIN, and ABORIGINAL FACIAL and PHYSIOLOGICAL FEATURES ---------- whereas the so-called "israelites" are WHITE, many of them are friggen RED-HEADS, which beady eyes, and large pronounced 'hooked' noses (this is a physiological observation by people around the world). They are friggen WHITE -- how obvious can it get?!! ---- one of these does NOT fit in! Is it the Palestinains, Jordanians, Saudis, Indians, Persians, Egyptians, Northern Africans ----- the BROWN/BLACK ones ----- OR is it the WHITE ASKENAZIS?!!!!!

Research it!

This is something, I've noticed qrswave, has knowledge of, at least in terms of "international bankers/central bank".

There are awesome, objective, and authentic video, text, photo, data sources.

Just Research It!

By the way, the Zionists are the modern term for "Askenazis"....

Yeah, I know, they keep changing names so we can't keep track of them ----- but you know what, many of us DO KEEP TRACK. That's right, whether "you" change your family name from Bauer to Rothschild ('rots' = Red, 'schild' = 6-side star sign in German), or Goldberg, Bilderberg, Silverstein, etc -------- we keep records.

Sad, that international community sits there with their dicks in their hands, not knowing what is happening around them.
