Hopeless in Gaza

So, the one set of people more reliably unreliable than the British Tory Party, ie the Palestinians, have shown the extent of their "respect to the opinions of mankind" by electing as their new government Hamas, an organisation so terroristic that even the Zeropeans noticed, and whose party platform includes:

“Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of [Hamas]”;

“There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad.”;

“[Israel] is behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion.”

(And, ladies, check out Article 17: Hamas evidently regards any kind of outreach activity as an act of war).

Hamas considers Palestine to be “the navel of the globe”; I would argue that it more closely resembles another small, circular body part.

I do not condemn the Palestinians for wanting a state of their own; rather, I condemn them for blowing up children to score cheap political points. (I forget who it was that said that if these people would only adopt the tactics of Ghandi, they'd see an Israeli Labor government in three months and an internationally-recognised sovereign Palestinian state in three years...)

Some may say that the Palestinians have been hard done by, and I would agree: hard done by the Israelis, possibly; hard done by their enablers in the Zeropean Union, probably; hard done by the Arab states, certainly. (The motto of the other Arabs with respect to the Palestinians has always been millions for murder, but not one cent for relocation. The one Arab state that made a serious attempt to accept Palestinian refugees, ie Jordan, ended up the target of a Palestinian coup, which gives you some idea.) It's perhaps an explanation; it's no excuse. A human being will weep and rage for a brutalised, frightened child, even as he administers the lethal injection to the serial killer that child grew into.

(Commentator Vercingetorix at protein wisdom is all over this one.)
