  •  Hamas and Likud are political allies (6+ / 0-)

    The people of Israel and the occupied territories who want peace are their victims.

    The extremists on both sides need each other to maintain a state of fear to stay in power.

    You are either naive or disingenuous.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

    •  No... there was time I would have possibly agreed (0+ / 0-)

      with you, but, I have seen enough to say that it is you that is naive or disingenuous.

      I once wrongly compared Likud to Hamas. I will never make that mistake again. I disagree with Likud on almost every single thing. I read daily knesset briefs (they are easy to find - I get them sent to my inbox) and there is almost nothing I agree with regarding Likud.

      Just to be clear, I strongly support their Labor opposition.

      That said, they are nothing like the bloodthirsty killers and zealots that run Hamas. So I do think that this is a false equivalence.
