No leaders practice what they preach, anywhere.
Hamas have not launched a martyrdom operation since 2005. Maybe this "humanitarian" move is a good sign as stated in the article?
Ronen Bergman, an expert on Israeli intelligence affairs, told Fox News that he feels the permission granted to Haniyeh’s brother-in-law for
treatment in Israel could however be part of a bigger picture. "Hamas is well aware that Israel will give high quality treatment to Palestinians
without taking into consideration their organizational membership," he said. "Furthermore, this case could be interpreted as a signal to Hamas ...
that the channels of negotiation that brought about the release last year of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit ... might potentially be used to
develop better relations between the two sides.” Read more:
Either way it is hardly the largest case of hypocrisy in a region RIFE with examples such as Saudi Arabian funding of the Syrian rebels while
suppressing their own Shiite population as well as in Bahrain, Israels proclamations that it is the only democracy in the region, whilst approaching
an apartheid like situation in regards to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, Israel demanding an end to the Iranian nuclear program whilst in
possession of anything up to 200 nuclear weapons.
To be sure Iran and Syrian leaders, opponents of the Israeli/Sunni axis commit their own hypocrisy, just look at Assad and his cynical attempts to
dissolve Syria almost in co-operation with the likes of Israel and the Saudis.
My point is this is an interesting but minor detail in a region where hypocrisy and cynicism are currency.
