The Palestinian president reportedly told Obama that lifting the naval blockade of Gaza would bolster Hamas, a move that shouldn’t be done at this stage.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is opposed to lifting the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip because this would bolster Hamas, according to what he told United States President Barack Obama during their meeting at the White House Wednesday. Egypt also supports this position.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once more put off announcing the creation of a committee of inquiry into the naval commando raid on the Gaza Strip flotilla, and the matter will not be brought before the cabinet for a vote.
The issue of the Gaza flotilla and lifting the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip was the main topic of discussion between Obama and Abbas last Wednesday night.
European diplomats updated by the White House on the talks said that Abbas had stressed to Obama the need of opening the border crossings into the Gaza Strip and the easing of the siege, but only in ways that do not bolster Hamas.
One of the points that Abbas raised is that the naval blockade imposed by Israel on the Strip should not be lifted at this stage. The European diplomats said Egypt has made it clear to Israel, the U.S and the European Union that it is also opposes the lifting of the naval blockade because of the difficulty in inspecting the ships that would enter and leave the Gaza port.

The so called Islamic Gaza – aid flotilla – from Turkey has belled the cat in Europe.
While moderate Islamic militants like Mahmoud Abbas do not want the Islamic Revolution of Iran to speared from Gaza to Ramallah, the leaders in the Europe Union has voiced strong support for the Turkish and Iranian backed regime of Hamas.
To make the European folly complete, the Islamic Republic of Egypt do sternly oppose an end to the Naval blockade of Gaza.
Egypt correctly points to the fact that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza, that can not met by a road convoy of aid trucks into the Gaza-strip. Such truck convoy’s are subject of proper border control.
The problem in Gaza is not the lack of beef and potatoes, but that Gaza has an Islamic terrorist as the head of every governmental office.
The leaders in the EU is now standing with their pants down. While Jew-hate runs high in cities like Oslo, Dublin, London and Paris, there seems to be more sanity in Arabic cities like Cairo and Kuwait.
What a mad, mad World of old fashioned Nazi-style European antisemitism we live in.
