    Equating the Hebron Rabbis and Hamas may very well have some relativity.All fundamentalists of course are radical extremists and dangerous. Live and let live is not a motto heard from any of them but there are serious differences. When Avraham Burg equates Bush to Bin Laden I am totally disgusted.While Bush himself is a do do bird that sees the world in stark contrasts he is still head of the prime defenders of democracy in the world while Bin laden,albeit brilliant,is a terrorist scumbag. Hamas s turn gets strength from those ultimate radicals in Teheran or anywhere else while the Hebron Rabbis have no such support not even fro jews and israel proper so while the thinking of the both groups,Hamas and Hebron are extreme,there is no real comparison. We have to decide who we are and what we stand for. You are either with the forces of democracy or the forces of evil.Its a shame but even Avraham Burg cannot decide.
