    Lakshmi's same old tired broken record rhetoric rambles relentlessly on. Hamas could have been at this conference from day one had it ever showed the slightest interest in peace between Israelis and Palestinians and/or between Islam and the "infidel" Jews. Instead, Hamas remains committed to violence, to masked identities, to weapons set up among women and children and to Islamic hegemony in the region and then the world. This is why there is so little support around the world for Hamas and so much for Abbad and Fayad and the growing number of Palestinians who are fed up with the puppet master in Tehran messing up the Middle East. Lakshmi's wishful thinking will not be altered by reason. She is the most dogmatic of idealogues. But Lakshmi will still be spouting this nonsense when Hamas is defeated in referenda and elections and its only course will remain what its only course has always been: violence, interruption, disurbance and destruction until it, itself is finally destroyed.
