Hamas and middle east peace

This cartoon is great because it is in colour!

Like so many other observers Mr Bennet also sees Hamas as a huge obstacle to the middle east peace process. I'll try be short with my post! There are two things here that I wonder about:

  • 1. Are people aware that there are other elements as bad (maybe even worse) than Hamas? Importance of this being that we do not only address Hamas as the problem. This is a manifestation and we need to address the underlying problem - intolerance and the idea of violence against civilians as a justified political means.
  • 2. Other than simply "observing" Hamas as a problem, will anyone actually do anything about them? (and others like them)

  • Cartoon is thanks to Clay Bennett, The Christian Science Monitor, Boston February 9, 2005.
