Love the Palestinians, Hate Hamas

The Palestinians are on the receiving end of U.S. Taxpayer money. The Christian Science Monitor and other intellectually superior people would like to make the distinction between Hamas and the plight of the poor, poor people.

Hamas enjoyed over 70% of the popular vote in the lection. That's pretty durn good. That would be considered a Mandate by most people living in representative democracies, no? It would be fair to say that Hamas equals the Palestinians and the Palestinians equal Hamas.

Let's just say that America decided to elect David Duke, former Clansman extraordinare as President. Imagine for a moment that lots of guys in pointy white hats got elected into Congress on the Good Dukes robes tails. Let's say that all these people got elected by over 70% of the population. Their platform was as follows: fix the economy and incinerate our neighbors to the north and south. Bomb Canada into oblivian. Canadians are morally repugnant, French-loving socialists and must be expunged from the universe, because that's what God wills it. Hmmmm..... Could the rest of the world rightly say that America is inhabited by a bunch of insane, uncivilized zealots?

Yes, they could.

Would the rest of the world say, "Oh, Mr. Duke doesn't really represent what the people REALLY want. They are just suffering and had no other choice."

Um, no.

Would the world looking at our economic chaos fund racist, country-hating crazies?

It is impossible to separate the Palestinians from Hamas. They elected, resoundingly, Hamas. They ARE Hamas. A small minority are "moderate" and that is moderate in the Middle Ages sense, not the 21st century sense.

How, exactly will governments get money to the people and out of the hands of Hamas? That's right, they won't. And everyone knows this.

Suicide Bombers courtesy our tax dollars.
