The"leftist" posters here are European, what used to be called in the 60's "the New Left". They are basically nihilist and to an extent anarchist, and they like Hamas because it is a "revolutionary" organism, which keeps the violence going, ie. "perpetuates the dialectic". And the poor Palestinians (and I truly do sympathize with them), who just want to raise their families in peace, are subject to this perpetual, aimless "revolution" which is kept going by the shared agenda of the Muslim "right" and the European "left". Unfortunately there is no such thing as a revolutionary moderate, but that's what the Palestinians need.
