Why is a P.L.O. Flag Hoisted in D.C.? January 22, 2013 By Joseph Puder Almost immediately following his reelection as president, and just weeks before his inauguration, Barrack Hussein Obama sent a clear message as to his intentions regarding the Middle East and the Jewish state. He nominated a national security team consisting of U.S. Senator John Kerry (D-MA) as Secretary of State, former U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as Secretary of Defense, and John Brennan to head the CIA. These figures are known for their various degrees of hostility to the Jewish state, and their partiality towards and appeasement of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah. But if that was not enough, the Obama administration granted in 2011 permission to the Palestinian Liberation Organization to fly their flag in Americas capital Washington, DC. ... The U.S. Congress reaction to the Palestinian UN move on November 29, 2012, was to send President Obama a letter on December 21, 2012, signed by 231 members along with the chairman and ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee declaring We believe that the U.S. must react strongly to the Palestinian leadership failure to uphold its obligations. Members of Congress suggested that the U.S., at a minimum, should close the P.L.O. offices in Washington. President Obamas national security nominees notwithstanding, his approval of the PLO flag flying in the nations capital is an affront to peace and justice. Why is a P.L.O. Flag Hoisted in D.C.?
