The State of Our Cynicism by George F. Will
Washington Post Jan. 31, 2006
On Sunday, on ABC's "This Week," Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said:
"My hope is that as a consequence of now being responsible for electricity and picking up garbage and basic services to the Palestinian people, that they recognize it's time to moderate their stance."
That would have been only a week or two after Obama met with the Mayor of Ramallah during his trip to the Middle East.
"Oh Americans, Allah will punish you...
because you have fought anyone who raised the banner of Islam."
