It's articles like this that make me seriously wonder if anyone reads Daniel Pipes or NRO anymore.
I mean SERIOUSLY.
Why does Hamas want war?
Well, I know I'm not very bright, but I actually have the answer.
And it's a better one than the one Pipes has come up with.
Try this on for size:
"It's the jihad, stupid."
Therefore, this is an exceptionally dumb article by a relatively smart person.
But you simply cannot have a discussion about Hamas, or write an article about Hamas without mentioning jihad and Islam.
