So we have Islamic Jihadists attacking Egyptian Security Forces to get at Israeli's, and Hamas publically condemning the whole thing. These guys are just crazy. I think even Hamas is starting to come around to the fact that, yes, their has been a lot of injustice by Israel over the years...and they have a right to be mad- including about Cast Lead. But human beings are human beings, and we are all in this together. I think everyone but a handful of pure wack-jobs (that includes some Israeli wack-jobs) are growing tired of violence, and just want to move on. I know it sounds weird- but an attack like this really might be the type of self-defeating stuff every reasonable person knows is stuff that will eventually burn itself out, which in a weird, tragic, way, sort of works in the peace-camps favour, and against the violent Jihadist intent. Sad.
