Woman Honor Thyself

VodkA and FrencH NapoleanS anyone?

As reported in Yahoo News..Israel fumes over Putin 'knife in back.

Well isnt this special..

Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to invite terrorist Hamas to Moscow,-getting backing from the country known as France- "as potentially positive for the peace process.".."Moscow, unlike the United States and the European Union, does not consider Hamas a terrorist organization."...

All rational minds know however that all this does is give international legitimacy to a vile, murderous ,terrorist organization.

Israeli officials have pressed against any political contact with Hamas until its recognises Israel.

Can people of conscience find any political principle in this action whatsoever? Cozying up with and inviting the attack dogs over for Vodka?
Maybe they can all have a little anti-Semitic, anti-"Wer'e insanely jealous of America" rant-fest.

Or maybe they can just sit around highlighting their convoluted political analysis, convincing themselves and each other that they should be the governing majority...with or without their suicide bomb belts on.

But we all know (that is the one's with a tad of sanity intact) that Ha-masssssss is morally bankrupt. No need to unpack that fact.

Why people are actually surprised at Russia and France..well now that has me puzzled.. Is it really so stupefying ?..Think about it...We're talking Russia and ..cough..cough..France here.

    Well, if you defend the war in Iraq, you really shouldn't be getting into the blood for oil debate. Also, please invest in a spellchecker, you are becoming increasingly difficult to understand.

    At any rate, Hamas, for better or worse has become the democratically elected government for them, so they have to be legitimized sooner or later. I think it would be more productive for the world to begin talks with them to encourage them to disarm in exchange for a continuance of the Israeli pullout from occupied areas in addition to humanitarian aid. I think it likely that even Hamas is surprised by their success, and now must moderate themselves to survive politically for longer than one election cycle.

    I admit some ignorance on this subject, so I may very easily be wrong here, but no westerner really seems to understand middle east politics. Most don't even understand western politics, for that matter.

    I agree with Karl M. This is all about the oil. This amounts to selling out the free world for OIL!

    Talk with Hamas? Have a look at the Hamas Charter. The entire document is here.

    More logic, less 420 please.
    Hammas is a terrorist organization.
    I don't care if they are elected "King Of THe Planet" they won't even acknowledge Israel's right to exist! How would you like to negotiate your future with a mentality like that?

    "Moscow, unlike the United States and the European Union, does not consider Hamas a terrorist organization."–Putin

    Well, d'oh.


    Putin calling another kettle "white" is damning with no praise.

    I've seen the charter, try to follow my logic, first, Hamas is democratically elected, so like it or not they aren't going away any time soon.

    Second, they were elected not primarily because of their terroistic tendencies, but rather for their promise to do away with government corruption, which was rampant under the previous regime, and it's social and health programs. Therefore if they want to survive politically, they will have to begin to moderate themselves, because the people there don't want a state on state war with isreal, that would be utter suicide.

    I believe I read recently that the leader of Hamas has already not "ruled out" talks with Isreal. This would seem to me to be a hopeful sign, and in the meantime, Isreal could crush them in a moments notice anyway if there was any sort of act of war. Likely with US support. We don't need this to turn into another slaughter if it doesen't have to.

    It's too bad that after the Cold War ended, Russia still decides to back the wrong guys in almost every instance. Instead of becoming a strong ally and a real player in world politics, Russia is a broken superpower dreaming of the "good old days."

    Tim..Don't worry, we've had presidents who don't understand Western governments.
    Yes..Hamas was elected, all the monitors agreed that it was fair but that doesn't change them from being a terrorist organization. Of course, so was the past Fatah under Arafat, and we did finally recognize that government after they stated the right of Israel to exist. Hamas has stated that they would never concede Israeli's existence.
    Don't forget Hitler was also democratically elected into power.

    Israel still remains the only true constitutional democracy in the region. Hamas will never respect minority groups such as Christians and Jews living inside its boundary.
    I agree that Hamas was surprised by its victory and is clueless on how to run a government.

    Iran watch: From your comment, I can tell you have the capacity for an actual debate (unlike some unnamed individuals), so I will ask you, what do you think are the possible chances of Hamas moderating and beginning talks with Isreal?

    Frankly, I don't see what other choice they have, like I mentioned before, a state on state war would be outright suicide.

    What else could we expect from Russia and France?
