Middle East headlines: Obama sides with PLO in NYC anti-terror lawsuit and more

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

Hamas is digging more tunnels, say Israeli authorities after interrogating a prisoner who also confirms that civilians are endangered because Hamas stores explosives within residential structures. PLUS:

* Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seeks a political comeback

* Obama's administration has intervened in a New York City lawsuit against terrorists who killed and wounded Americans; John Kerry argues that the Palestinian Authority can't afford to pay the judgement

* Researchers at Tel Aviv University may have taken one step closer to curing melanoma

The people of Obama are the Islamic people. The American people are not his people, they are only the people who elected him as President. If only the media has mentioned that during the election!

Obama clones already running Ontario/Quebec/Alberta/ soon to fill PM’s seat! Bad guys don’t need tunnels here, they’re on the payroll in all government departments backed by all unions.

Obama’s main goal is to start WW3, why else would he cause all these problems.

Holy shit. Obama will not finish his term before all hell breaks loose

This, along with the Iran deal, Keystone, and Obama’s economic policies will surely cement him as the worst President ever. Unfortunately it may take 50 years for the world to realize it. This posting may still be on the net then. Ha Ha. Keep your reports coming Igal. I appreciate them.

AhmadiNejad can seek re-election but he can’t win. Not this time, anyway, not with his former ministers doing time for corruption. And once the Ayatollah passes away, may God speed him, Iran’s business community may be strong enough to usher in an even more moderate leader than Rouhani and make sure no one ever hears again of any future bid by AhmadiNejad for power.

That is great news about a cure for melanoma! Israeli medical research rocks!

My eyes glaze over when I see stories about Obama or Kerry, about their duplicity and their treachery. I just can’t attend to any more than headlines. They always confirm what I already know.

I like the Trump solution for IS – “We’ll take their oil and their banks” and I favour that sort of solution for Hamas too. Enough of the long suffering already.

Obama showing his true colours…

Traitor Obama shows more of his alliances!

barry wants iranian oil – he’s not getting House of Saud oil – it’s his only financial option that is left.

so barry sucks off Iran.

It is not surprising as to how Obama & Kerry (his puppet) have reacted. Don’t be surprised either if you wake up to the news one morning that all the detainees @ Guantanamo have been released or moved to a US prison. I applaud the DOJ’s stance re Obama’s interference in this matter. Would not have happened under former AG …Eric Holder.

My pals, PLO and PA can’t afford that award! Be nice to my pals.
