Supporters....or fools?

Reader comment on item: Middle East Extremists Attack Their Supporters

Submitted by Fred Baehr (United States), Sep 21, 2014 at 18:01

What have I missed? Why do so many people, whose own moral principles are contrary to to statements and actions of Palestinian leadership, if not the vast majority of the populace, support the Palestinian movement? I'm very sorry but the use of human shields and all the other undeniable tactics Hamas uses, not to mention the street executions of suspected collaborators... the list could go on and on...

policies of that kind prevent me from supporting their cause. The Palestinians and all the other troubled, unhappy, miserable people of the region have made their own cultures, as have we all. Is it so surprising they should murder some outsider schlep if the want? Kerr, Stevens, Stone and Foley were dirty kuffars anyway. If their use is at an end killing them might be useful and in any case makes no difference, because "Allah is all merciful, all knowing". Its hopeless.
