The Hamas victory is good news
By Jeff Jacoby
He argues that this is a blast of fresh air, insofar as it's pretty hard to ignore the fact that Hamas is basically a genocidally oriented group. Mr. Jacoby also gives us the quote of the day:
Islamist extremism isn't needed to fix Palestinian hospitals any more than Fascism was needed to make Italian trains run on time in the 1920s.
He demonstrates here his ignorance of Italian culture. I fail to see how anything short of a dictatorship could get them to do anything on time. Or maybe that's not a bright thing to say.
I hope people are listening.
