'President Obama has done a great disservice to our strongest, most reliable ally'

Hugh Hewitt on President Obama's speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday here.

One big catch in Hewitt's brief remarks. Hewitt says Israel shouldn't have to negotiate with Hamas, because Hamas doesn't accept Israel's right to exist. That's true, but no one is asking Israel to negotiate with Hamas - at least not yet.

But Israel is being asked to negotiate with the 'Palestinian Authority' and with Fatah which do not accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state and which are not willing to agree to an 'end of conflict' statement in return for the creation of a 'Palestinian state.' Asking Israel to negotiate with Fatah under those circumstances is just as wrong as asking Israel to negotiate with Hamas.

The truth is that there is no difference between Fatah's and Hamas' ultimate goal: The destruction of the State of Israel and the expulsion of all Jews from Dar al Islam (Islamic land). The two parties differ only on tactics.

This is exactly what Andrew McCarthy says in this excellent article.

I'd like mindless Israeli leaders to explain to us how Fatah and Hamas are different. Fatah is willing to negotiate - for an Israeli surrender. Hamas refuses even the diplomatic fig leaf and vows to destroy Israel through jihad.

Now that is a true Hobson's Choice!
