Apparently, the US has broken its ties with the Hamas-controlled Palestine. This move came only a few weeks after we plotted with Israel to get rid of the Hamas altogether ; undoubtedly paving the way for more turmoil to mount in the Middle East. What I don't get is how the U.S. and Israel can get so wrapped up in their warped sense of values/morality, thereby creating more unrest than what they claim to want to eliminate. They try to promote freedom and democracy, and then call Palestine evil since they selected the Hamas (emphasis on the word selected).
No matter how you slice it, the Hamas regime is product of free elections. For the West to oppose and, ultimately, attempt to destabilize, a government created under the process of democracy is hypocritcal; especially when they want democracy to be the world's mantra.
This just goes to show: Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it...
