(Yoda Voice) The need for perspective I see....discontent flows strongly here. mmm...
Okay, first off.... I'm rather shocked. How did the OP rate getting pounded?? As I read it, he started right off by acknowledging both sides are
guilty and are very much parties to share blame. I sure didn't see him suggesting that Israel was a land of sunshine and lollipops while Hamas locked
themselves away to devise evil plots. It would read to me like the point of the OP was that Hamas is *ALSO* guilty, here is an example, and perhaps
seeing both sides is a good starting place.
I'm sure I'll be corrected quite quickly here if I'm misinterpreting that.
Now, Hamas ARE NOT NICE PEOPLE. Palestinians in Gaza are NOT all Hamas. However, Hamas is among the very last hold outs for even recognizing Israel
and absolutely, positively and under no uncertain terms, refuses to. Period. This is NOT exactly how peace is made and if we want to even JOKE about
the idea of peace being the final outcome there......all sides who have actual power, as Hamas is the Government of Gaza, need to at LEAST have basic
respect for each other.
Hamas has NO respect for Israel and in fact has been the ones firing rockets and mortars into Israel on and off right up to quite recently. Not the
West Bank and the PLA, but HAMAS. Again, these are not nice people. Not even a little......and they are not looking to stand alone. They're branching
The victory of Mohammed Morsi in the Egyptian presidential elections could enable Hamas to secure international recognition, an official in the
party told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency on Monday.
He predicted that Morsi as president will “get the international community to recognize us and deal with us, just as it did with the Islamists
in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen.”
He noted that the movement would accept any condition from the international community in exchange for international recognition except one:
recognizing Israel. He claimed that a Hamas recognition of Israel means giving up
As I said earlier on another thread. There are no White hats or even Black hats as pure sides in this conflict and the coming open war. Everyone is
wearing shades of grey. Some darker than others. Hamas is among the darker shades in my view and continues to show it.... The PLA in the West Bank can
apparently be worked with.....but Hamas is not budging. Well, that is how wars are simply the only path left....and they're doing they're part to
get there. No doubt.
