Meet the New Boss

Normally I shun "me too" posts as pointless and egocentric, but what my blog (and real life) friend Elder of Ziyon blogged about the Hamas victory was so insightful and well-written that I simply must link to it, and have little to add.

It is ironic that so many blog-friends of Israel are distraught over the Hamas victory. The Hamas win is bad news only to the PA thugocracy, and to misguided naifs that maintain the fantasy that any of the Palestinian leadership ever had goals other than the total destruction of Israel. In reality it has been clear for several years that the only difference between the PA and Hamas approach to the "peace process" was in tactics, not strategy. See practically any post here for evidence, if you need any.

Israel is better off with opponents who are lousy liars than with opponents who are good at fooling the world. Unfortunately the world powers, including much of the Israeli leadership, are so obsessively addicted to being fooled on this issue, that I fear it won't be long until Hamas too are painted as "peace partners". And the tragic comedy will continue. Sadly, the irony of "Won't Get Fooled Again" is as relevant today as it ever was.

I liked the Elder of Zion summary of the situation as well. But I didn't know he was a friend of yours. He looks much older in his picture! ;)

Not predictable, just consistent!

Sorry, but I have changed my mood somewhat.
