    Syria hasn't started two wars. Syria didn't set up a concentration/torture camp on an island. Syria isn't impeding the world in global warming. Syria isn't building new settlements on land the entire world recognizes as occupied land. Hamas - although Israel may not like them anymore than the Palestinians like the Irgun, Leti, and Stern Gangs - is a legitimate resistance organization. Sure, there can be discussions about the use of suicide bombings to kill 500 Israeli citizens - just as there can be a debate about the humanity of the IDF in killing close to 5,000 Palestinians in the same time period. The main point which doesn't come out in the media - is that they are not wild terrorists, they don't side with Al Quaeda, and they don't target Americans - they only want their homes and land back. So whats so wrong with Syria allowing them a place to be in exile? Should they just execute these poor souls who have lived a life in exile so Jews can have a homeland?
