Yaacov gets the warm and fuzzies over the old PLO. NO, there was no difference between the PLO and HAMAS. The core of the PLO charter is the same as the HAMAS charter. Accepted use of violence. Total destruction of Israel. All else is poetic fluff. It's amusing to see that when you try to insult HAMAS (rather than coddle them as rejectionists) you say that they're rabid as Jewish extremists. Again, just your own personal burden with the Jews.
