HANNITY: Hang on a second.
OBENSHAIN: Yes, actually.
HANNITY: Privately we all know
that the Obama administration has done everything they can do to prevent the
Israelis from doing what is in their best national security interests which is
going to be, you know, pretty obvious pretty soon, in my opinion. And then he
talked about Jerusalem being the capital, directly repudiating this idiocy of
Jay Carney in the White House last week. So he is drawing lines of distinction
that are going to be pretty big in the campaign.
OBENSHAIN: Yes, we will see
what Mitt Romney says if he becomes president. That's the idea that he, you
know, he's just pandering in such an unbelievable way.
HANNITY: Pandering? Like Barack
Obama doesn't pander?
POWERS: You guys can't
distinguish between the fact of Barack Obama having a disagreement with the
right-wing government and actually Israel. They are not the same thing. All
that Barack Obama has done --
HANNITY: You know -- we
shouldn't interpret those words he spoke in Cairo the way we do.
POWERS: Because he doesn't roll
over for Bibi Netanyahu you think he
doesn't support Israel. That's not the point. He has just honestly had an
honest conversation with them about settlement and suddenly, you know, we can't
-- we can't do that?
And we haven't even talked
about how Mitt Romney went over there and insulted the Palestinians and acted
like everything in their economy is -- has nothing to do with Israel.
HANNITY: Kate, last word.
OBENSHAIN: There's been nothing
honest, Kirsten, about the way this president has handled Israel. Before he
became president, he said that Jerusalem was the indisputable capital of Israel
and now he says it's not.
What this president has done
fundamentally is emboldening Israel's enemies by constantly attacking not
Netanyahu, although he's been nasty with him, with Sarkozy, those nasty little
But what he's done is he's told
Israel's enemies the United States will turn a blind eye every time that they
go after Israel, as they attack them verbally and encourage and foment this
opposition particularly among Palestinians and the Muslim Brotherhood. And
fundamentally in Iran, we are turning a blind eye against it and we're
abandoning our best ally in the world.
HANNITY: Thank you both for
being with us. Appreciate you being here.
POWERS: Thank you, Sean.
