Once again, the Obama administration engages in the whitewashing of Islam and Islamic terrorist activities. Following and Israeli Defense Force Soldier killing a Palestinian teenager, who was throwing a Molotov cocktail at Israeli civilians, the Obama administration declared that the American born teenager, who had been in the West Bank since he was 6, was not a terrorist.
Not only did the administration not call him a terrorist, but in a statement on Friday, they actually expressed their “deepest condolences to the family.”
Well, that was the same question that Associated Press reporter Matt Lee asked of Obama State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Lee asked Psaki if she thought it was appropriate to express “deepest condolences” to the family of someone that was killed while engaged in attacks on civilians.
First, Lee began by asking Psaki if she was aware of the circumstances in which the teenager was shot. When Psaki began to shake her head, Lee continued, “There are reports that [the Palestinian teenager] was throwing Molotov cocktails at cars on a highway, and I’m wondering, if that is the case, would you still have been so speedy in putting out a statement and offering your condolences to the family?”
“The argument that is being made by some in Israel is that this kid was essentially a terrorist, and you don’t agree with that, I assume,” Lee continued.
“Correct, we don’t,” Psaki said. Psaki replied, “I just don’t have any more details on the circumstances.”
“Would that apply even if he was throwing Molotov cocktails?” Lee pressed.
Psaki then said she wasn’t going to speculate because she didn’t have details, which begs the question of why you issue condolences without details.
Lee then pointed out that there was a photograph of the teenager wearing a Hamas headband as he was being buried. He asked whether or not that was “of concern at all.”
Psaki clearly was annoyed with the questions and basically waved them off as if they were not of any significant importance, but this is exactly the kind of thing the Obama administration has been hiding behind for years. They whitewash Islam. When a person or group of people act according to the Islamic doctrine found in the Koran, it’s labeled “workplace violence,” mere accidents, or other such non-sense instead of calling it what it is, jihad attacks.
I’ll say it as clearly as I can, Jen Psaki is an Obama stooge. That’s all she is.
As for the State Department’s actions, on Friday they called for a “speedy and transparent investigation” into the teen’s killing. However, just two days earlier, following a Palestinian, with ties to Hamas, ramming his car into a group of bystanders in Jerusalem, killing 3-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun, they would only refer to it as a “despicable attack,” but wouldn’t refer to it as having anything to do with jihad or Islam. That jihad attack also resulted in a twenty-two year old woman’s death as well.
Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Paul Hirschson was interviewed by The Blaze for his reaction to the Obama administration’s statements:
“We in Israel and most of West believe in personal responsibility,” Hirschson said. “It wasn’t the parents who threw the Molotov cocktail and if you want to give condolences that’s fine.”
Throwing Molotov cocktails at passing cars “is a manifestation of the pursuit of conflict and it does warrant, deserve stark criticism and condemnation, first and foremost from the Palestinian Authority,” Hirschson said.
“They’re doing the opposite which is disastrous,” Hirschson said of the Palestinian leadership. “They are encouraging the pursuit of conflict.”
As Pamela Geller pointed out on Monday, the Obama administration didn’t have a hard time blasting Israel without knowing all the facts. She wrote, “This past summer, when Hamas staged a hoax – a staged school attack – without verification or confirmation, Obama called Israel “indefensible,” instead of calling the blood libel “indefensible.” His administration was “appalled” and “horrified” by Israel, not by Hamas. What is more appalling, horrifying and indefensible than denouncing Israel on the world stage without the facts? Calling a terrorist attack that kills a baby “a traffic incident.”
Exactly right, but that is how Obama has been from the beginning. He speaks to incite people against his enemies. Remember guys like Henry Louis Gates and George Zimmerman, who were railroaded by Barack Obama, only to discover he didn’t know what he was talking about? Remember Obama’s blasting the Egyptian Christians for protesting the Muslim Brotherhood? Remember how he always goes off halfcocked, claiming to not know the facts about the many scandals that have occurred in his administration, even going so far as to openly lie and have his people lie about the reason for the Benghazi attacks, but assuring the American people that there is no corruption in his administration, not even a smidgen?
This is just more wrongfully placed blame by the Obama administration on those that are seeking to do what is right in order to cover for their sinister actions against those that they disagree with.
