McCain: ‘I Will be Hamas’s Worst Nightmare’

United States Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Saturday that if he were elected, he would be “Hamas’s worst nightmare.”  McCain said that Senator Barack Obama, one of the two candidates currently vying for the democratic nomination, was Hamas’s favored candidate.  Senior Hamas terrorist Ahmed Yousef recently expressed hope that Obama would win the US election.

McCain said Hamas favored Obama due to Obama’s willingness to meet with “rogue regimes” such as Iran with no preconditions.  In contrast, McCain said, “I think it is very clear... why [Hamas] would not want me to be president of the United States.”
