Congressman Trent Franks blasts Obama for Having the “Reprehensible Gall” to Support Terrorist Group Hamas
Congressman Trent Franks from Arizona, the Co-Chair of the Israel Allies Caucus, issued a stinging one minute speech Friday on the House floor, powerfully rebuking Obama’s feckless response to rocket attacks launched against Israel by “evil” terrorist group Hamas.
“Last month Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas openly united with the evil terrorist group Hamas. And at this very moment, they are raining down rockets upon the innocent citizens of Israel,” said Rep. Franks, a Republican said in a passionate and forceful tone.
“Half of all Israelis have sought cover in bomb shelters across their tiny country,” the Republican congressman said. And the Obama administration has had the reprehensible gall to praise Abbas as someone who is, quote, ‘committed to non-violence and cooperation with Israel,’” Franks angrily explained, while quoting Obama as saying, “Finally peace is possible.”
Rep. Franks went on to accuse Obama of conducting a “flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists,” and an “unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal” towards Israel, the only democracy and strongest American ally in the Middle East.
“I thought that nothing this president could ever say or do would surprise me anymore. But this president is flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children is an unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal.”

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
