Hamas made me do it!

No matter how one feels about Hamas, the elected representatives of Palestine, resorting to racism and propaganda -- as in this shockingly vile cartoon printed, e.g., in Sunday's Valley News (Vt./N.H.) -- is uncalled for. It demeans not its intended target, but the artist and those who cheer him on.

Even Hamas's critics can not deny that it is Israel, not Hamas, who is killing the women and children of Israel.

Hamas has not sponsored a suicide attack since 2005.

The death toll at the time of this writing is about 905 Gazans dead (275 of them children) and 13 Israelis (3 of them not soldiers, and 4 of the 10 soldiers killed by "friendly fire") since the invasion began 2 weeks ago.

If Hamas did not exist, Israel would have had to invent it to justify their continuing race war.

Indeed, they helped Hamas to oppose Yasser Arafat's PLO and the threat of peace.
