    The Palestinian people have a right to protect themselves. And since their previous self-defense organizations were systematically assassinated and slaughtered by Israel, there's nothing left but the most militant and radical among them. Hamas did not gestate in a vacuum. It is a rational response to Sharon's atrocities, being continued by Netanyahu.
    What the Israel apologists seem to always forget (well one of the things) is that this didn't start last month, that the genocide of the Palestinians started in 1948 and went into overdrive (and Israel became a rogue nation) in 1967.
    Annexing or seizing land, building settlements on occupied land, bulldozing farm land, bombing hospitals and schools, destroying basic infrastructure, persecuting and slaughtering Palestinians, denying Israeli Arabs their rights, et cetera, if done by anyone else, WE'D be firing rockets at them.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
