When faced with important decisions, it helps to understand the situation as completely as possible. In light of all the facts, and with an understanding of history, one can usually see the right choice, or the right set of options, with little difficulty. Knowing Hamas and their ideology, it then becomes impossible to understand why anyone would want to compromise with them without coming to the conclusion that it is only because of an overwhelming desire to avoid reality.
This from our friend in Jerusalem:
The Palestinian Authority’s President, a Hamas member, is in Iran. He says Hamas will never accept the State of Israel. More, the only acceptable way to be rid of Israel is by force of arms.
Land for peace anyone? I’ve spoken with several Leftists who either don’t know what the Jihadis are saying, or do not believe them, or do not believe that their words are actually their words. They instead attribute their hatred for the West to silly things like U.S. foreign policy or our “taking” (like we never pay for it– to the tune of billions) of mideast oil (the fact there is, America is their best customer– they should love us).
I suggest that if you want to know why they hate us, you might try listeneng to them. Oh, but I understand that that wouldn’t let you blame the U.S. and the Jews, or G.W. Bush, which seem to be the main goals for some Americans.
