Pockets of sanity in unexpected places

While celebrity terror apologist Cynthia McKinney garners press for her high profile humanitarian relief attempt in Gaza, other "usual suspects" are withholding the obligatory knee-jerk denunciations of Israel over its campaign to knock out Hamas in the Gaza Strip:
Fourth, any realistic hope of progress toward a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and a successful two-state solution requires that Hamas suffer a severe setback in the present fighting in ways that seriously damage its capabilities and weaken its political credibility among Palestinians. Leading officials of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority know this and, notwithstanding their formulaic criticisms of Israel, have explicitly blamed Hamas for the current violence. PLO and Fatah officials fault Hamas for the deaths in Gaza, and an adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Nimr Hammad, told the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar: "The one responsible for the massacres is Hamas, and not the Zionist entity, which in its own view reacted to the firing of Palestinian missiles." Indeed, Hamas's position as a radical, terrorist, adventurist, Islamist organization is underscored by the absence of support for it by Muslim governments other than Iran and its surrogates.

Cynthia is running out of fashionable victims to demonstrate solidarity with.

Update: Iranian extremists call for a reward for anyone who assassinates Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for his support of Israel. How can the terror-appeasing Left continue to see Israel and the US as the primary parties responsible for unrest in the Middle East?

My new year's resolution is, as always, no more dead Jews.

That simplifies things considerably, but then I am a simpliste.

This morning on NPR, Daniel Schorr woke up out of his senility long enough to remark that the events in Gaza are a proxy war with Iran. If even he gets it, everybody should.

But if Iran is engaging in war -- a position I have maintainedf for 30 years now -- shouldn't its enemies also?

Yes, well, then you have your work cut out for you.

* We are all Hezbullah now.
* And we are all Hamas now.
* And pretty soon we may be all Iran now.

(You can be the head of a modern 21st Century country!! that, by the way, is no stranger to ruthlessly decimating its, um, less than desirables....perhaps, that's why he styles himself such an expert on the matter?....)
