Reader comment on item: [Alastair Crooke's Conflict Forum and] Sharing Jokes with Hamas

Mr. Crooke said that Muslims hate our policies, not our values. Well, we have seen in this country what can come from Muslims who hate our policies. It's not negotiations. It's not an attempt to find common ground. It's a surprise attack that could easily have killed more than 50,000 people in lower Manhattan. And that was in 1993.

Whether they're in Hamas, Muslim Brethren, Hezbollah or al Qaeda, they're still terrorists.
