Liberal Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is blaming the Bush administration for the rise to power of Hamas, the fundamentalist Islamic group that controls the Gaza Strip and wants to eradicate Israel.

In an appearance at the Jewish Community Center in Pembroke Pines, Florida, Wasserman Schultz said that Hamas came to power because of President George W. Bush’s push for democracy in the region, and said “the rise of Hamas is thanks to quote, un-quote democracy,” according to The Shark Tank political blog.

“Here’s the thing about democracy: you never know what you’re going to get,” she said. “We have to be careful what you wish for. So remember that President Bush pushed for democracy in Gaza and the West Bank and you got Hamas, in charge of Gaza… The rise of Hamas is thanks to quote, unquote, democracy.”
