There are shades between black and white. There are even other colors. The Bush/Cheney Sharon policy that drove Hamas into the arms of the Ayatollahs can possible be reversed. But it would be difficult to do given the Israeli Preference for the Hamas alignment with Iran. Then again some fear that all Islamic thought is centered in the 7th Century. That is akin to keeping all Jewish thought in the 5th Century BCE. There are Muslim men who don't keep their harems in Beekeeper suits. And there are Israeli men who don't sell their children into sex slavery (even when the rules clearly set out allow it). Some countries in the West are exploring the gray areas, even if the forces of the extremists don't like it.
