Hamas’s Silver Lining

The victory of Hamas, a terrorist group that advocates the destruction of Israel and has slaughtered countless innocents, definitely changes the calculus in the Middle East. But look at the bright side. Yasser Arafat, a corrupt and murderous thug, was able to hoodwink many people about his allegedly peaceful intentions. He said one thing about killing Jews to his own people and then smiled for the cameras and spoke about peace in the West. Arafat even won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994. But no one should have any illusions about Hamas.
