“We don’t mind — actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance,” Yousef said in response to a question about the group’s willingness to meet with either of the Democratic presidential candidates.
UPDATE: Some context. Last June, Yousef wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post urging America to engage Hamas. I blogged about it at the time. It’s pretty clear what’s going on here. Hamas wants an American president who they can manipulate, Arafat-style, into believing they seek peace, while they continue a campaign of terrorism and hang on to their ultimate goal of destroying Israel. They know they have an easy mark in Obama.
