Off the Roadmap: Bush Won't Deal With Hamas

Unless they renounce violence (giggle) and recognize Israel's right to exist (chortle), of course.

Good Condi:

Earlier Thursday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said, "our position on Hamas has therefore not changed."

Hamas "cannot have one foot in politics and another in terror," Rice said from the State Department via video hookup to the World Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland.

Bad Condi:

"Palestinian people have apparently voted for change, but we believe their aspirations for peace and a peaceful life remain unchanged," she said.

Um, well, you're right, their "aspirations for peace" do in fact remain unchanged, in the sense that they never had any before and never will for the foreseeable future.

It's over. Finish the wall, quarrantine like they've been infected with some horrible disease (which they have been -- a kind of viral psychopathy), and let them stew in their own hatred and squalor.

Surprise! Europe Is Actually "Disquieted" By Hamas Victory: For all these years, they really thought the Palestinians didn't support terrorism:

European leaders, whose countries are major financial donors to the Palestinian Authority, registered disquiet verging on hostility towards the Hamas triumph in the Palestinian elections today.

Yet, confronted with a Middle East that seemed once again to have redrawn its political contours, they held back from publicly threatening to sever the hundreds of millions of aid dollars they provide each year to Palestinian institutions.

And none of them criticized the Palestinian democracy that appeared to yield the opposite of the moderation they avowedly sought to nurture.

Yep. Europeans by gosh have themselves a more "nuanced" and "realistic" view of the world than us dumb Americans, that's fer darn sure.
