Most American Jews chose to vote for the Democrats, but what they got instead are the Defeatocrats, and ultimately it is Israel that will be made to pay the price.
In the weeks leading up to the US election, various reports surfaced suggesting that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama was the favored candidate among the terrorists of Hamas.

Nonetheless, an estimated 78 percent of US Jews went ahead and cast their ballots for him anyway.

Well, now there is confirmation from Hamas that they have been holding talks for some time with Obama's advisers.

Ahmed Yousuf, political adviser to Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh, told the London-based Arabic daily Al-Hayat that "We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)."

Yousuf described the contacts with Obama's aides as "ongoing", said he is still in touch with them, and went on to suggest that Obama's Middle East policy "will differ from that of his predecessor George W. Bush".

There you have it - proof positive that Obama just can't wait to start talking with Hamas, cuddling up with them, and ultimately appeasing them, despite their bloody record of terror against the Jewish state.

Don't say we didn't warn you.
