Democracy on the March!
As if the time hasn’t already passed for the U.S. to radically rethink it’s foreign policy, we can now add Palestine to the list above. If these parodies of the democratic process aren’t signal enough, what will be? The rise of radical Islam is directly tied to the oppressive governments that we have supported all these years. Islamist militancy is a symptom of the alienation the people of the Middle East feel when they are left out of the governing process. Far from being any kind of fan of Hamas, I hope that their new position of “being inside the tent pissing out,” rather than, “being outside the tent pissing in,” is not derailed by American and Israeli, “Shout shrilly and carry a big stick,” diplomacy.
