Hamas speaks

This has to be unprecedented. The Washington Post and the New York Times have simultaneously published today op-eds by Ahmed Yousef, the political adviser to Palestinian Prime Minister (the legitimate one) Ismail Haniya, explaining Hamas' position on recent events. Interestingly, the two are not identical. Read both. Combined with Jimmy Carter's recent statements, perhaps Americans will begin to understand a bit of what is happening in Palestine. Perhaps. But only if this issue gets the "repetition factor" on the talk shows etc. that it requires to penetrate the consciousness of the generally barely conscious American public, which is doubtful.
