Hamas is bullish on Obama

Hamas found some things to like in President Obama's interview with Al-Arabiyah on Monday.
After earlier dismissing Obama as following the same policies as Bush, officials from the militant Palestinian Hamas group, which rule the Gaza Strip, softened their stance.

"In the last couple of days there have been a lot of statements (from Obama), some of them very positive, and choosing this George Mitchell as an envoy," said Ahmed Youssef, a senior Hamas official interviewed on the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera news network. "I think there are some positive things we have to count."
Hopenchange anyone?

The kind of Hopenchange Israel and her friends can do without.

An endorsement from Hamas, even a qualified one, is a kiss of death for the "peace process." So their belated bullishness on Obama might have a silver lining.

Why do you think it's belated? They supported Obama before the elections too.
