PA (Hammas) Spokesman

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Anarchy Continues under Hamas

Submitted by Bill Chicago (United States), Aug 31, 2006 at 12:46

It took a lot of courage to say what the Hammas spoksperson had to say about Palestinians being their own worst enemy. He will probably be the next one killed.

But let's not forget the IRA and the Real IRA. Some folks, on either side of any conflict, just don't want to quit--perhaps don't know how. When you have spent a lifetime fighting, real or imagined, what do you do with yourself when it is over??

It is too bad Jerry Adams was not as forthright in the begining instead of hiding behind the IRA political wing while the militant wing kept up the fight.

I have often thought there were many similarities between the two conflicts.

The Palestinins have their suicide bombers. The IRA had Bobby Sands
