'Not Lovers of Blood'Uh huh, sure. And the MSM laps it all up.
The Hamas leader on Israel and the Palestinians
...Last week NEWSWEEK's Lally Weymouth spoke by phone to the newly designated Hamas prime minister, Ismail Haniyeh. He was speaking from Shati refugee camp in Gaza, where he lives with his wife and 12 children [lots of future martyrs in this family, I'm certain of that].
Haniyeh: The withdrawal from Gaza was based on a unilateral decision and a unilateral plan. It was not [done] out of the generosity of Israel. We ask, is Israel committed to all these agreements? We are not war seekers nor are we war initiators. We are not lovers of blood. We are oppressed people with rights. If peace brings us our rights, then this is good.
And so do the dhimmicrats on both sides of the Atlantic. The EU has announced 'emergency funds' to the tune of 120 million euros to "stave off (a) Palestinian funds crisis". Meanwhile, the "Islam is Peace" White House has pledged to continue, ahem, "humanitarian funding" for those poor Palestinians. Really, just because they elected a bunch of tyrannical murderous terrorist thugs, now why should we should let them starve or go without band-aids?
Got to hand it to Bush, he never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
