    It is understandable that Lieberman wants to equate the Chechens with Hamas when talking to Russia. But the truth is that the Chechens are MUCH worse. Look at what the Chechens get from their occupier Russia: They get their own state within the Russian Federation, they get full citizens' rights, including voting rights, and nobody can discriminate against them within their electoral systems, so ethnic Russians do not have extra rights. With all this, they rebel against their occupiers and commit terrorist acts against civilians, both in Chechnya and in Russia itself. Considering all that they get from Russia, isn't this a shameful behavior? Of course the Russians are outraged and treat the Chechens accordingly. Now look at the Palestinians. They get no state, they get no voting rights in Israel, they don't sit in the Knesset, and ethnic Jews are more valued and have extra rights. With all this, they don't even act worse than the Chechens. So by comparison, I would call them Humanists!!! I think if the Israeli Foreign Minister talks to outsiders, he should be a little more realistic and try to do more honest comparisons!
