Perhaps someone can put me straight here, but why is it that governments around the world accept and support Egypt's government yet call Hamas terrorists? They are both factions of the same group (Muslim Brotherhood) yet one is a government and one is a terrorist - I find it hard to get my head around.
Also, why is it that the US and UK feel that Israel has the right to defend itself against the missiles that are constantly fired at them and say that "no government would put up with this"
yet feel that it IS acceptable for Israel to occupy and confiscate land that is privately owned by Palestinians?
My views and questions might sound too simplistic and have no straight answer but am I alone in feeling that certain governments have much 'deeper' issues for supporting such disgusting behaviour?
What makes some countries/conflicts worth getting involved in whilst others go unnoticed for years where far worse goes on?
Now with regards to Hamas, Hamas is considered by many as being legitimate. It's tactics however could be considered extreme just like Israels.
