Same Old Hamas...
Are you ready for a couple more little rays of sunshine from the Middle East?
The Prime Minister of the Palestinian "government" has refused to recognize Israel's right to exist.
Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas said, ""I personally will not head any government that recognizes Israel," Haniyeh said in a mosque sermon in Gaza City.
The Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, was at the UN on Friday when Haniyeh issued his statement. The President has stated that he would not ask Haniyeh to personally recognize the right of Israel to exist, but rather to abide by the PLO's agreements to recognize the Jewish state.
That's kind of like the Vice President publicly stating that he thinks the Constitution is a load of crap, and the President telling him, "That's OK, as long as you do what it says."
Of course, we couldn't wrap this up without an Iranian threat or two against the west... Check this out.
Speaking of the UN and debacles... Did anyone else awake in an alternate universe today?
Nanci Pelosi came to the defense of President Bush, calling Hugo Chavez "an everyday thug." WOW!
"Hugo Chavez fancies himself a modern day Simon Bolivar but all he is an everyday thug," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a news conference, referring to Chavez' comments in a U.N. General Assembly speech on Wednesday.
"Hugo Chavez abused the privilege that he had, speaking at the United Nations," said Pelosi, a frequent Bush critic. "He demeaned himself and he demeaned Venezuela."
Tell me again why we let these clowns into our country? If there were any time for Bush to orchestrate the clandestine controlled demolition of a building, this would've been it!
