Hamas Spokesperson Blasts Palestinians

When one hears the terms "Hamas" (or muslim) in the same sentence as "blast" one might reasonably think he is referring to yet another exploding car bomb, executed hostage or Quassam rocket fired from the Palestinian territories.

But "blast" in this context actually means something very different. In this case a rare, frank, admission from a member of the Hamas government of the Palestinian's abject failure to address the misery of their own people following Israel's withdrawl from the Gaza strip. In his own words:

.."unimaginable chaos, careless policemen, young men carrying guns and strutting with pride, and families receiving condolences for their dead in the middle of the street."

"...We've all been attacked by the bacteria of stupidity," Hamad wrote. "We have lost our sense of direction." He asked the armed groups: "Please have mercy on Gaza. Have mercy on us from your demagogy, chaos, guns, thugs, infighting. Let Gaza breathe a bit. Let it live."

"..."We're always afraid to talk about our mistakes," he added. "We're used to blaming our mistakes on others. What is the relationship between the chaos, anarchy, lawlessness, indiscriminate murders, theft of land, family rivalries, transgression on public lands and unorganized traffic and the occupation? We are still trapped by the mentality of conspiracy theories - one that has limited our capability to think."

(Emphasis mine).

Of course he doesn't give Israel a free pass so he can't be blamed for being an Israeli agent or apologist:

"I am not interested in discussing the ugliness and brutality of the occupation because it is not a secret. Instead, I prefer self-criticism and self evaluation,"

Now that might be the solution to everyone's problems over there: Get the terrorists fighting among themselves. We can sit back and watch them kill each other...

Don't believe everything you think
