Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - WASHINGTON - With Barack Obama just 10 days away from being installed as the next U.S. president, his advisors are urging him to open a dialogue with the Hamas terror organization, according to Britain's The Guardian.

According to the article, three of Obama's closest advisors recommended clandestine meetings with Hamas, similar to the way the US began secret talks with the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) in the seventies.

The advisors said no preconditions for opening dialogue -- such as acknowledging Israel's right to exist, renouncing terror or accepting previous agreements between Israel and the Palestinian Authority -- should be imposed on Hamas.

The advisors allegedly said failure to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would damage America's status in the Middle East and strengthen Iran.

And according to The Guardian, Obama was admonished to promote reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas to facilitate the formation of a PA unity government.
