    "Don`t you just feel sorry for them (Hamas)." - Kieran No, I don't and neither do you. Kind of like feeling sorry for Sinn Fein and the assassinated Michael Collins, a fellow from Cork like you Koeran. The next question is of course should we feel sorry for the Black and Tans? i bring Sinn Fein, the Irish uprising, Michael Collins, the Black and Tans et al up because Kieran, your homeland is the product of the Irish method of using an organization with separate political and military arms to overthrow an ancient occupation. For those who don't know the story, in the end Michael Collins was assassinated by anti-Treaty IRA in County Cork. . . You can be certain that strategists of both Fatah and Hamas are aware of how the British were forced out of most of Ireland. A good study for it is distant enough to be handled without the emotional baggage that makes for poor history.
