Who’s Handling Security For Obama’s Visit With Abbas?

Last week I noted a section in Aaron Klein’s book Schmoozing With Terrorists, in which Klein details his discussions with various members of terrorist groups, in which they praise Barack Obama and sneer at John McCain.

Today, Klein has another eye-opening story:

Members of the most active West Bank terror organization are set to serve in security forces being deployed to protect Sen. Barack Obama during his trip to the West Bank tomorrow, WND has learned.
Obama is due to visit Israeli officials in Jerusalem and leaders of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank city of Ramallah as part of a wider Middle Eastern and European tour that includes Jordan, France and Germany.
According to security officials coordinating deployments of forces with the PA for Obama’s Ramallah visit, members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah’s declared military wing, have been called upon by the PA to participate in the protection of Obama, particularly in securing the perimeter during a scheduled meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas…
…”Maybe the Israelis will try something because of Obama’s policy on Israel, which the Zionists don’t like, but we will certainly protect Obama. We are professional security forces,” the Al Aqsa member said.

Despite the claim that they’re there to protect him… I’m unnerved by this story for several reasons, not the least of which is the safety of Obama.
