    The cautionary enthusiasm.....

    Hello teacher!

    I can't fully comprehend the following sentence.
    Would you please paraphrase it for me?

    The cautionary enthusiasm of Hamas displayed vis a vis Obama's comments should be viewed in compliance with this line of thought.

    Thanks.

    That is certainly a difficult sentence Is there a particular word or phrase that is more difficult than the others?

    The cautious excitement of Hamas demonstrates they may be in agreement with a thought or idea that Obama has stated.

    There are a lot of political implications made in this sentence!

    Re: The cautionary enthusiasm.....

    It's a very odd sentence. It's pretty clear that 'cautionary' is supposed to mean cautious, but I've no idea what 'in compliance with' is supposed to mean.
