I'm not sure why you want our opinion on the HAMAS article, Ender. As mentioned, criticising actions by the Israeli government does not make one a cheerleader for HAMAS. But since you insist, for my part, I thought it was heavily implied in my previous post that I don't think very highly of them. Though I can sympathise with the Palestinians for turning to them, for reasons you put very eloquently in your own most recent post. I feel very confident in assuming the same to be the case with the others you tagged as well. I would be VERY surprised if there were any actual supporters of HAMAS posting here, and this includes even wannasee. It's also worth mentioning that I haven't really commented on Israel's conduct per se in my recent postings. My one criticism was of an article that I thought had a faulty perspective on the media attention. My knowledge is limited, so I prefer to read more than I post. It's a paradoxical and amusing phenomenon that for all our government's preoccupation with this issue, whenever the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is brought up is usually when Iranians tune out and turn to Angry Birds.
