- When I read news stories like this, I agree with the stance even though I reject other policies:
- Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said on Saturday his government would not bow to foreign pressure to recognize Israel and disavow violence despite funding cuts that are pushing the Palestinian Authority to financial collapse.
If they are a sovereign state (which they aren’t, of course), why should they allow foreigners to call the shots?
If these people genuinely believe that Israel should be wiped out and the Jews exterminated or at least driven away, why should they compromise their principles for the approval and economic support of others?
The foreigners want to stand on their own principles by refusing to provide recognition and aid to an anti-Israel, anti-Jew outfit like Hamas. How, then, can they expect Hamas to not stand on their own principles?
Do I support Hamas in their anti-Israel, anti-Jew, civilian-slaughtering principles and practices? Of course not! That’s not what I’m talking about here.
