During a town hall meeting in Florida this week, DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz gave President Obama a free pass for his stance on Israel, regardless of his calls for Israel to go back to its 1967 borders in May. As a reminder, if Israel were to go back to its 1967 borders, the Jewish State would be indefensible against Hamas, the terrorist organization and group in control of the Palestinean Authority. She instead blamed the rise of Hamas in the Gaza Strip on....President Bush.
The Shark-Tank has more:
During the second of her scheduled town hall meetings held at a Jewish Community Center in Pembroke Pines, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz stated during the Q&A segment of the program that Hamas came to power because of President George W. Bush’s push for democracy in the region, and said “the rise of Hamas is thanks to quote -un-quote Democracy.”
Let’s call it her “Denial of The Nile” take on foreign policy. Wasserman-Schultz is correct to note that we should be leery of what results may come from “democratic change” in the Middle East, but what she’s blaming Bush for (again) is actually what the Obama Administration has aided in the so called “Arab Spring” in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt, where the supporters of Islamic fundamentalism promising a return to Sharia Law are ascendant, and anti-Israel sentiment along with Christian persecution is on the rise.
