President Obama has been busily comparing himself to Lincoln of late. Perhaps he can take this opportunity to write his own version of the famous “Bixby Letter” which Lincoln sent to a mother who had allegedly lost five sons during the Civil War:
Washington, September 2011
I have been shown in the files of the United Nations a statement by the UNRWA that you are the mother of five sons, one dead and four now serving lengthy sentences for killing Israelis.
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the imminent terrorist state they worked to bring about.
May the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, intercede before Allah to assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of genocide.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
Barack Hussein Obama
