I think we have an issue with equating Hamas with Palestinians .. [View all]

They are not the same

Yes some Palestinians are without a doubt members of Hamas.. likewise there are some Americans who are members of the Klu Klux Klan.. but in either case, the few who are members of a political group do not reflect the whole of a people, race, culture.. etc

Hamas attacked Israel, they practiced in a mock town to enter and kill its inhabitants.. videotaped it and perfected their killing style..

Hamas is a political terrorist organization, .. just like the Klu Klux Klan
