  •  good and bad HAMAS? (4+ / 0-)

    Really?  Are you equating HAMAS with Palestinians?  There are massive numbers of Palestinians who are indeed good and descent people.  But HAMAS?  Really?  Are there also good and bad Islamic Jihadis?  Are there also good and bad ISIL?  And good and bad al Qaeda?  

    Maybe I don't understand what you mean by good and bad.

    •  Right, Hamas is publicly and proudly (4+ / 0-)

      anti-semetic, anti-christian, homophobic, misogynistic and forces sharia law on other muslims. Other than that, they're OK.

    •  I'm sure there are Hamas people who (0+ / 0-)

      are nicer than others. Like any group, there are surely going to be some assholes. But likely some friendly people as well.

      •  Nice isn't good (3+ / 0-)

        Plenty of socio-paths and murderers are also capable of being nice.  And the "like any group" isn't a useful generalization.  We aren't talking about race or nationality or culture.  We are talking about a membership organization, one organized around a set of ideological principles.  There are nice members of drug cartels.  But drug cartels aren't "like any group."  Neither is the klan.  Neither is Westboro.  Neither is al Qaeda.  Neither is the group that kidnapped 300 hundred schoolgirls to sell them into sex slavery.
