Please review the facts, Ma'am.

And please speak out AGAINST terrorism!

This post was definitely one of my more impulsive ones. (In fact, this is my second edit of it!)

My wife and I had just seen this movie (it's WAY worth the 10 minute wait!) about Gush Katif (in Gaza, Israel?... you know, that whole "disengagement" thing?) Bush, Condy Rice and the rest of the world seem to be calling for a "contiguous Palestinian State," too.

But where would that lead us as humans if we allow the only democracy in the Middle East to be cut in half and then (read al-Zahar's comment below) SMASHED INTO OBLIVION by a terrorist entity (albeit with a kind face)?

We'll be hurtin' that's what.

Start by studying a short history of Hamas. And realize these "kind-hearted" terrorists hold a majority of Gaza's seats in the fledgling, wannabe government of the Palestinian Authority? So the "disengagement" could plainly be put - "Hamas wins Gaza by terrorist strategy."

"Oy! Things that make ya go, "Hmmm..." huh?"

Hamas: "Israel Will Eventually Disappear"
Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar told the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera that Hamas would "definitely not" be prepared for coexistence with Israel should it retreat to its 1967 borders. "It can be a temporary solution, for a maximum of 5 to 10 years. But in the end Palestine must return to become Muslim, and in the long term Israel will disappear from the face of the earth," he said according to Ynet News.

I'm just asking that anyone who wants to care about what's going on in the Middle East (which DIRECTLY correlates to the worldwide "war on terror") should learn the facts about Hamas and the Jewish "settlers" before they decide to castigate a bunch of flower-growers for turning a bunch of sand dunes into a brilliant oasis (that'd be the Jews of Gush Katif). Please study?
