Democracy, Hamas-Style!

Extreme graphic violence warning. The graininess of the video helps reduce the gore, but the video shows the victim of a Gaza stomping-to-death lynching. Oddly, the lack of blood makes it more ugly; a human being has been reduced here to an amorphous pulp of biological mud and post-human oatmeal.

Background at Little Green Footballs.

Jimmy Carter, the Sage of Savannah, instructs us that not honoring these thugs' electoral victory by pretending an election transforms them into non-thugs was a "criminal act" on the part of the United States.

Psst, Jimmy-- Hitler got elected too!

Carter said the consensus of the U.S., Israel and the E.U. to start funneling aid to Abbas' new government in the West Bank but continue blocking Hamas in the Gaza Strip represented an "effort to divide Palestinians into two peoples."

"All efforts of the international community should be to reconcile the two, but there's no effort from the outside to bring the two together," he said.

He says this while praising Hamas and knocking Fatah for corruption. Plainly he's taken sides here.

I think what he means by "reconcile" is that we should up-arm Hamas so they can kill Fatah. I don't mind the killing Fatah part, but I'm confused as to why we should 1) intervene in a nasty civil war at all and 2) furthermore intervene on the side of declared terrorists and murderers.

I'm not surprised why Jimmy Carter supports this -- he's always had a soft-spot for tyrants, butchers, torturers, and Jew-killers. But I'm a little baffled at why I should follow his advice on this point.
