Reader comment on item: Why Hamas['s Electoral Victory] Leaves Me Neutral

Submitted by Daniel (United States), Jan 31, 2006 at 13:49

It seems to me doubtful that Hamas will soften it's public rhetoric: in English or any other language.

How could they - after spewing intolerance and their proclaimed mission (of Israel's destruction), for decades? After all, besides their "humanitarian" work, what else have they to offer but hatred, death, perpetual suffering and calls for "sacrifice"?

Sadly, it would seem they now have been granted a mandate.

The prospects for Middle East peace (in our lifetimes), have become very dim, indeed.
