Condeming Hamas is truly ironic in that they were elected DEMOCRATICALLY, and that's what the big push in the ME by the US State Dept is all about,
bringing democracy to the Arab street.
i think that's where the rub is at,
the US spin is to ignore the fact that Hamas was freely elected
also the Hizbollah, it too has a 'political wing', and was chosen as a minority representation in the legitimate Lebanon government lawmaking
i see the US as lumping the political wings of Hamas & Hizbollah
together with the military wings of both Hamas & Hizbollah
and painting them as being exclusively terrorist orgs
~and by inference; that Hamas & Hizbollah were not ethically elected in free elections,
& therefore have no standing in the democratically elected community.
in-other-words, Hamas & Hizbollah used threats & force (as is the nature of terrorist orgs according to this administration) to get elected in the
? you then ask what would Condi do/say?
She would jump at the latest statement by a Saudi Wahhibist who issued a comdenation of Hizbollah actions & Iranian support of the Hizbollah war like
actions that are not in accordance with Islamic law....
