Maps, Guns and Butter?

No, not a follow up post to my previous one about gun nuts, but rather questioning how otherwise smart people can be taken in by Hamas?

If you think about it, since taking power Hamas have achieved zero for the Palestinians. Hamas have not build any schools or Universities, not built a single road or even clear the rubble from the streets of Gaza. Rather than offer Palestinians any hope, any butter, instead Hamas have spent their time accumulating arms and perfecting weapons.

So Hamas do have one minor point of acclaim, whilst in power they have managed to increase the range of their rockets, as the map below shows:

Hamas prefer guns to butter, the question is, do their Western supporters and sympathisers?

  1. They are not “taken in” by Hamas, Mod. The fully and willingly sypathize with the Hamas project, and the means used to see it through. The world has some tender spots, and the job of the nihilist is to locate them and cause as much irritation as possible. It’s not like the gore is going to come out of your teevee and ruin your carpet.
