Hamas...another 'respectable' partner for the dhimmi West?

Reader comment on item: Don't deal with terrorists

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Jan 25, 2006 at 13:45

I have the impression that we are being slowly prepared by some media and influential groups behind them to treat Hamas not for what it is - a group of dangerous bandits - but as a "valuable" potential partner for future "negotations"(=Western and Israeli concessions) ... just like the PLO once upon a time.

The PLO started as a group of gangsters and murderers, then slowly more and more official persons,organizations and governments started to flirt with it. The more its power grew the more illusions were cherished on its account until Arafat, the mastermind of terrorism and deception, was given the Nobel Peace Prize !...

It wouldn't be surprising to see that instead of a firing squad Mahmoud Zahar would meet one day a delegation of Norwegian pundits announcing that he has been chosen the Nobel Peace Prize laureate "for his upright efforts to create peace in the Middle East".
