President Obama hosted Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, in the Oval Office, Wednesday, June 9, 2010. As you see in the photo, Obama and Abbas are shaking hands very warmly.
This photo of a handshake should not be an issue but it is because Obama is going out of his way to show disgust with Israel and Prime Minister Netyanyahu.
When he hosted the Israeli PM in the Oval Office last month Obama specifically made a point of not allowing any pictures of their meeting and certainly no photos of a handshake. Someone should tell Obama that Israel is our ally and has been for the last 62 years.
The American people will not allow President Obama to continue to disrespect our friend and ally in the Middle East. Obama’s behavior is outrageous. The a$$ that he should kick is his own!
Gateway Pundit had this:
Barack Obama invited press photographers into his meeting today with Palestinian Fatah Leader Mahmoud Abbas.

But, just three months ago Obama would not allow photos of himself with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visited the White House.
Tonight on Special Report Charles Krauthammer commented on the Fatah photo-op.
“Obama has shifted and reversed American sympathies in the Middle East.”
