"Sharon was a war hero." (PETER SM) Hamas is the local branch of the Egyptian 'Muslim Brotherhood'. Most apparently, then-PM Sharon the-war-hero just didn't know it (historians are still debating who forgot to tell him), when he chose to abandon Gaza into the hands of this terrorist organization, rather than let Mahmoud Abbas - elected six months earlier to Chairman by his people - have the key of the city. "What with Sderot? Ashkelon? And Chairman Abbas?", asked the cabinet's only voice of reason. "Don't be silly, Abbas is irrelevant. A not yet feathered chick. As for Sderot and Ashkelon, we shall say it is all because of Oslo", the war hero answered. "They will gobble it up, believe me. When children bleed, mothers scream, and sirens howl, reason is deafened." Every wicked leader knows that. This is how Israel came to be plagued with an Islamist enclave it cannot live with, nor defeat, on its Egyptian border. The noxious fruit of a rotten policy. Sharon-the-war-hero and his ministers thought that better a tiny Hamastan than a big settlement-free West Bank. After all, it is the Jewish people's right to defend itself. Never mind the Jew-haters who will claim otherwise. We can always go to the General Assembly and remind the world of our six millions.
