GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Following their resounding election victory, the Islamic militants of Hamas met the question of whether they will change their stripes with a loud “no”: no recognition of Israel, no negotiations, no renunciation of terror.
But the world holds out hope that international pressure can make them more moderate.
Because human kind cannot bear very much reality.
At stake is the future of Mideast peacemaking, billions of dollars in aid and the Palestinians’ relationship with Israel, the United States and Europe….
Yes, and the peace of the world, and the fate of the global jihad of this age, and the fate of free societies, and more.
