    To Robert of Washington, D.C. The Palestinians do have a legitimate leader; Haniyah....He was democratically elected - in a free and fair election, I might add - by the people of Palestine to lead them. If anyone can deliver peace, he can. It is Israel that is refusing to deal with him and is, instead building up the puppet to masquerade as the leader of the Palestinians. Calling Hamas "a terrorist organization" is a copout. It is easy to call anyone you do not want to deal with "a terrorist"! Iran has just declared the CIA and the US Army "terrorist organizations" with just as much right as Israel in its characterization of Hamas. Be honest Robert! Peace will only come AFTER truth and justice. It has come to South Africa; there is no reason it cannot come to Palestine/Israel, but people like you must first change their attitudes and seek truth and justice. Once truth and justice have been established, peace will naturally follow and with peace will come security. Mike B.
