by Javier ManjarresOn my trip to Washington, D.C. I was able to meet up with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the Chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the House of Representatives. I asked her about the recent union between the terrorist organization Hamas and the Fatah government. Ros-Lehtinen echoed Congressman Allen West’s concerns about how this ‘unity-government’ could be a labeled as a legitimate state and open the door for U.S. aid.
Ros-Lehtinen opposes the merger and said that U.S. law would prohibit the acknowledgment of this government, thus prohibiting U.S. tax dollars to go aid the new Fatah-Hamas government. Hamas’ organizational charter calls for the destruction of Israel, and Ros-Lehtinen believes that Hamas will completely take over Fatah, and impose its destroy-Israel position that is stipulated in the Hamas charter. Ros-Lehtinen is concerned that the Obama Administration will not do the right thing in acknowledging this ‘unity government’.
