Obama Talks Israel, Jews, Hamas, Middle East


In looong interview with The Atlantic, the candidate condemns Hamas and says Jimmy Carter was wrong to use the word “apartheid” to describe Israel.

“It’s emotionally loaded, historically inaccurate, and it’s not what I believe.”

Also tackles Jewish settlements, Zionism and more.

Update: House Minority Leader John Boehner uses interview to accuse Obama of calling Israel a “constant sore.”

Obama camp hits back, calling it a “dishonest and ridiculous distortion.”
