Nobody Is Suffering More Than The Palestinian People?

Barack Obama is very charismatic, and a very good public speaker. Additionally, he strikes me as a man without a moral compass. Check this out:

Muscatine, Ia. - Illinois Sen. Barack Obama on Sunday told a small
group of Iowa Democrats that U.S. policy in the Middle East can be
compassionate as well as tough - while he also provided these
influential voices in the leadoff caucus state with an up-close view of
him as a presidential candidate.

Obama told the Muscatine-area
party activists that he supports relaxing restrictions on aid to the
Palestinian people. He said they have suffered the most as a result of
stalled peace efforts with Israel.

"Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people," Obama said while on the final leg of his weekend trip to eastern Iowa.

No one is suffering more than the Palestinian people? Not the Sudanese who are being killed in a brutal genocide? Not the North Koreans who are being slowly starved to death by their own government in a country which is little more than a large concentration camp at this point?

And, has it occurred to Obama that his loose language here does not acknowledge the fact that the world, including Israel, has been helping to fund the Palestinian regime for years on end? That they have been given a chance to form a working government, to build businesses, to educate their children, and that instead of doing so they have squandered it all on providing their entire population with a 24 hour a day curriculum of Jew-hatred.

Yes, the Palestinian people are suffering alright. They are choking themselves to death on their own hatred of Jews.
