someone sees the 800 pound gorilla

Well, look at that. It seems there might be a clear thought process in action somewhere in the Pali world. A snippet of a quote from this article from the BBC:
The Gaza Strip is in the grip of anarchy and Palestinians must stop blaming Israel for all their problems, a senior Hamas figure has said.

Ghazi Hamad, chief spokesman for the Hamas government, said the hope that followed Israel's pull-out last year had been replaced with "a nightmare".


Refreshing to hear that at least someone in that region can recognize the 800 pound gorilla that has been standing in the middle of the street. Everyone else seems to be walking around it without even seeing its shadow.

And of course, since this is from the BBC, there had to be that snarky insertion of “Isreal Bad, everyone else good” that seems so prevalent in the BBC’s reporting:
...the BBC's Alan Johnston in the West Bank says.
But he adds that the best government in the world would have struggled to cope with Gaza's overwhelming social and economic problems.
Hamas has also been paralysed by the crushing Western and Israeli economic boycott imposed because it has refused to renounce violence and accept Israel's right to exist.


I'd like to repeat this phrase, and I'll continue to do so everytime I hear some bozo whining about what's going on in Ireal and the Pali lands:
Hamas has also been paralysed by the crushing Western and Israeli economic boycott imposed because it has refused to renounce violence and accept Israel's right to exist.

Ayup folks, it’s all our fault. Because we refuse to cater to a government that has its stated intensions to wipe a friend and ally off the face of the earth simply because they do not subscribe to a specific religious creed makes my mind reel.
