    "Re: the myth that hamas is part of a world wide conspiracy,wake up! They are very focused on Palestine,have distanced themselves from Al Q.,have distanced themselves from Army of Islam . . ." - Lakshmi It is easy to comprehend that Hamas is an organization created in response to the local situation and dedicated to changing that situation. To do so, however, requires several things. First, one must be aware that there were local circumstances and hostile forces which forced the creation of Hamas. Second, one must understand how Hamas has adopted as circumstances changed. That is to say that one has to comprehend that the decision to create massive settlements in the West Bank and Gaza created fear and hostility amongst the Palestinian population. That the process caused suffering in that population. One must to some degree that the actions of the Likud governments of Israel were the motivation for the existence of Hamas. It is easier to imagine a conspiracy so vast.
