    Hamas vs. Fatah

    These lunatics can't even get along with each other, how the hell will there be peace between Israel and them?

    And those are the ones that carry out attacks but the regular folk suffer.

    Latest news.

    Interesting, Forbes and Washington Post have the same exact wording...

    If Hamas wins, the U.S. will deny aid to the Palestinians because Hamas is a terrorist organization.

    I find it funny how the US is so passionate about democracy that they will spend hundreds of billions of dollars on a war and tens of thousands of american lives just to acheive it but if a country democraticly elects someone they dont like then they condemn them for it.

    Nope. They're much more moderate. And they're not on the U.S.'s list of terrorist organizations.

    So we should give away money to people who want us and our allies dead?

    Voting has consequences. Just look at the U.S. leaders. If the people choose wrong, then they suffer the consequences.

    Heh, no.

    Well, at least they aren't trying to overthrow them this time. Yet.

    If the US occupies one more sovereign nation the US military will be stretched so thin that Bin Ladin will be able to disarm and overthrow the whole country with a long stick and a mean look.

    I think shipping tens of millions of dollars worth of weapons to the people that lost the election and are desperately clinging to whatever power they can could legitimately be described as 'trying to overthrow'.

    I like the idea of those two groups killing each other. It saves the IDF bullets

    So, you agree that such actions should apply to all of the Palestinean people ... even for those who didn't vote for Hamas?



    One ring to rule them all. One ring to find them, One ring to bring them all, And in the darkness bind them

    Does that include the weak, the aged, and the infirm? Does it inculde all of the children as well?

    Think before you speak Smeg ...

    Americans seem to be grouped together and blamed for GW Bush's action. So fair is fair.

    Although in an ideal world, neither the people who didnt vote for Bush/Hamas shouldn't receive any blame.


    *Not trying to compare Bush to Hamas. Just trying to draw out similarities of how people suffer the consequences of their voting.

    It's an Associated Press article. Newspapers often run AP articles as-is and give credit to the AP. If you ever see a small-town newspaper, the AP articles are almost always the best articles in the paper because they are well-written. I think you just have to pay some sort of fee to use them.

    Damned right all of them. They chose evil. Time for them to pay for it. Just like the Germans, Italians and Japanese did.
