Hamas To Bush: "F- You!"

-
President Bush is saying all the right things about the Gaza issue. I think he is handling it very well for now... and statements like he made today are exactly what the world needs to hear from a leader.

[[ President George W. Bush demanded on Saturday that the Palestinians respond to the Israeli pullout from Gaza and portions of the West Bank by cracking down on terrorism. ]]

The President continued- reminding everyone that terrorism MUST be stopped.

[[ "Now that Israel has withdrawn, the way forward is clear. The Palestinians must show the world that they will fight terrorism and govern in a peaceful way," Bush said.

"We demand an end to terrorism and violence in every form because we know that progress depends on ending terror," Bush added in his weekly radio address. ]]

The palestinians, reacting to the President's honest and sincere words, immediately renounced terrorism, dismantled Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and promised the world that they will make the most of this chance for peace.

Just kidding...

[[ It was Bush's most direct call for the Palestinians to act against militants since the withdrawal, and the Islamic militant group Hamas responded with defiance by saying it was committed "to the arms of resistance."

Sami Abu Zuhri, spokesman for Hamas, told Reuters Bush's statement was "evidence of the American bias to the Israeli occupation and represents hostility toward the Palestinian people."

"Palestinian resistance is an internal Palestinian affair and Bush ... should stop intervening in Palestinian affairs and should stop exerting pressure that only aims to cause strife among the Palestinian people," he added. ]]

Umm... yeah... I can see how calling for an end to terrorism represents "hostility toward the palestinian people"... I guess giving up terrorism would cause "strife" for them... after all, it is THE national industry of the palestinians.

Hey!

Doesn't that "F" stand for "Farsi" ?

Eventually we're going to have to untie the Israelis hands on this.

With the pullout from Gaza, the Palestinians have a short path to national sovereignty. But then they won't have anything to gripe about.

As has been shown and posted herein, this was never about Palestinian "refugees". If it were, these people would have been absorbed by Syria and Jordan long ago.

It's always (since 1948) been about pushing Israel into the sea. Israel has shown on at least three occasions that they are fully capable of taking care of themselves when the world gets out of their way.

Now that we have hegemony, the time has come to at least let them, if not aid them.

Husker, I agree.
