Obama figures that this will give Israel a feeling of security from attack by its neighbors. The fact remains that Hamas (and Abbas to a little lesser degree) are bloodthirsty neighbors whose extremist Islamic views perpetuate terror on women aqnd children). They call Israeli women " Zionist baby factories who must die". Ask the Egyptians why they have no relations with Hamas and have even closed their Rafah border with Gaza. Something about Hamas's connection with the Muslin Brotherhood organization that wants to overthrow the egyptian government?
