I do not see how one can distinguish Hamas and the Palestinian people? They are one. Hamas are now representatives for the Palestinian People. They represent their ideology and political movement. If not, they would have not been elected. This being the case, it logically follows that all Palestinians agree with terrorism and the world should let all of the Palestinians people rot, until THEY and HAMAS renounce terrorism. To provide money to people who voted in terrorism is ridiculous. Mark; whatever the case may be for the Stern or Irgun gangs. That was a log time ago and as you mentioned, the PM?s that belonged to those gangs renounced terrorism and tried to make peace with the terrorists Palestinians. But no luck.
