Stephen Walt etal Demolished
Lebanon news - NOW Lebanon -Legitimize Hamas and kiss the PLO goodbye
On the eve of Rosh Hashanah, it is especially sweet to read Hussein Ibish's demolition of Hamas' Useful Idiots, including Stephen Walt (and indirectly his Jewish Lobby partner, John Mearsheimer), oh-so-cool Judith Butler, and the rest of the anti-Zionist crowd. Here's a nice tidbit:
'Harvard professor Stephen Walt recently suggested that if peace negotiations fail, “Hamas will be in a strong position” to lead “a Palestinian campaign for political rights within [a] single state, based on well-established norms of justice and democracy.” Walt doesn’t seem to understand what Hamas is, what it believes in, what it opposes, or the implications of its regional affiliations. The idea that Hamas might become a civil-rights movement for international standards of justice and democracy is simply laughable.'
