U.S. pushes for democracy until the wrong side wins - Article Comments
The future of the Middle East entered a new era of uncertainty Thursday, as the militant Palestinian opposition group Hamas snatched power from the ruling old guard and made skeptics of many key players in the peace process. "There was a peaceful process as people went to the polls. And that's positive," Bush said. While he reiterated that the United States will not deal with the organization as long as it seeks Israel's destruction, he called.
U.S. isn't really against terrorists; it's just against terrorists who aren't its friends and allies! After all, if it were against terrorists, it would be against Israel, against the various Israeli governments which have thrown the Palestinians off their land and seized it, bulldozed their houses, torn up their olive trees and orchards, herded the people into virtual concentration camps, shot their children for throwing stones, etc.
So as far as I'm concerned, that is one more nail in both Israel's and the U.S.' coffin! Because the World is going to demand justice for the Palestinians and I don't think it is going to be very far away.
