Hamas Soldiers?

Misha points out that the Dean anti-Israel meme is not going to go away if he keeps opening his mouth on the subject. Here's the Dean quote from Fox news:

"There is a war going on in the Middle East, and members of Hamas are soldiers in that war"

CNN is also reporting on the controversy and they have the same quote with expanded context:

Asked if he would oppose the Israeli policy of selectively killing leaders of Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups, Dean said, "I think no one likes to see violence of any kind."

But he also said that "there is a war going on in the Middle East, and members of Hamas are soldiers in that war, and, therefore, it seems to me that they are going to be casualties if they are going to make war."

So the front-runner for the Democratic nomination thinks we should not take sides in the Mideast, and that Hamas is a military organization. Even the EU knows that Hamas is a terrorists organization from top to bottom.

TODAY, when the Jewish stat... (Below threshold)

TODAY, when the Jewish state has become a centre of identity and a source of pride and protection for most Jews, Zionism is being slandered as a racist ideology. Naturally, we do not regard criticism of Israel as antisemitism. It is as legitimate to oppose certain Israeli policies and decisions as it is to scrutinize any other nation. But anti-Zionism today has become very similar to antisemitism. Anti-Zionists accept the right of other peoples to have national feelings and a state, and to defend that state. But they reject the right of the Jewish people to have its national consciousness expressed in the State of Israel, and make that state secure. Thus, they are not judging Israel on the basis of the same values as when judging other countries. Such discrimination of Jews is called antisemitism...
