Hamas, enemy of peace
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell called the militant group Hamas an enemy of peace during a troubleshooting mission to the Middle East on Friday.
Hamas Pediatrician of Death Abdel Aziz Rantisi promptly validated Powell's statement, calling Powell a "big fat liar"
"This is a statement that reflects and proves that he is a little slave to the Zionists and to his master Sharon, that he is the real enemy of peace and justice in the world,"
Hamas also claimed credit for a shooting attack
today that killed one American citizen and injured his elderly parents.
Meanwhile, credulous optimists in the western media are hailing Rantisi's "peace offensive". Some free business advice to western reporters: Read the Hamas Charter.

the funniest thing about the hamas charter is the reference to rotary clubs and lions clubs as being fronts for zionism. I always wanted to ask an islamic scholar where that stuff came from, it is almost like the pictures of bert on the osama bin laden pictures or the letters Aleph Bet Mem that is found in the old Korans (an acronym for Ain Bo Mamashut - it is not reality - loosely translated). Does anyone know if that reference to the rotary clubs was a sort of joke by a mossad agent who participated in writing the charter?
I've been critical of Israel before on this weblog, but I just realized this recently, and I think it is important to acknowledge.
Imagine if the tables were turned and all of Palestine was controlled by Arabs, and there was a large and restive minority of Jews in the West Bank and Gaza, who had no military to speak of but instead engaged in terrorist acts, had an enormously high birth rate, and occasionally made historical claim to ALL of the area. How do you think the Arabs would treat the Jews in this case? I think that they would not be very nice. I think that ideas like annexation, population transfer, maybe even more evil forms of ethnic cleansing, would all be on the table.
