David Horovitz was the JP's executive editor when he wrote,
Since Fatah and Hamas announced their 'reconciliation' accord, I have waited for the chorus of international outrage… for global condemnation of the PA and its president, Abbas, for choosing to tie their fate to an organization ideologically bent on wiping out the Jewish state…
But I waited in vain. Dumb, delusional or just plain old anti-Semitic, much of the international community is ignoring the Hamas charter's guiding instruction to kill the Jews…
Although this 'reconciliation' has failed as of mid-summer, the fact that most of the world is willing to accept it is much more troubling than its success.
Hamas, the White House Chief of Staff Wm. Daley noted on , is a terrorist organization which targets civilians… Therefore a moral international community would seek to deprive it of any legitimacy; to do everything possible to prevent it growing stronger, to make plain it has no place in international dealings. Instead, in those same remarks, Daley declared, the US supports Palestinian reconciliation provided it is on the terms that advance the cause of the peace. What kind of doublespeak is that, and from the ostensible moral leader of the free world?
