Sure, let's stick our noses where they don't belong. What could possibly go wrong?


Well, besides that.

AFTERSNARK: It was amusing to see the Stephen Harper Party of Canada fall meekly and obediently into line, dismissing the results of a democratic election that had been so carefully choreographed by their American Neo-Con allies. Gosh, Pete, it really has to suck when things don't go according to plan, doesn't it?

BONUS SNARK: Amusingly, the Palestinian Hamas government represents an actual democracy, whereas Israel doesn't. You have to love that irony.

No wonder mr. Kay loves Iggy the Bloody....

I guess it puts the nail in the coffin of the retarded statement that 'no two democratic nations ever went to war'.

The ham-fisted political manipulation by the Bush administration in this case serves non only to demonstrate their colossal lack of knowledge about the Middle East, but also their complete disregard for the principles that they ostensibly espouse.

Obama has a hell of a job ahead of him.

Do you realize that Hamas describes itself as one of the wings of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is the equal to Germany electing Hitler, and Canada not funding them. What is your point?

If you really believe that Hamas shows a more democratic society than Israel, then you are dumber than I thought.

They are both democracies...in the same sense the oranges really are vegetables.

David said...

Why demand a democratic election if there was no intention of honouring the results?

The latest argument on the Internet is that if you even mention the word "Israel" it's because you're "you know what-ick".

Hamas?

Wasn't that the group funded by Mossad back in the 70's and 80's in an effort to undermine the socialist PLO?

Ooops...

Wayne and Zach. Hamas, no matter what you think of them, won a fair and legal election. Oner monitored by the UN and Elections Canada. You really need to get over it.

Mike:

There's no point lecturing Zach and Wayne. These are people for whom facts, evidence, truth and reality will never be allowed to get in the way of a meaningless, slobbering, right-wing rant.

I swear, if Israel had a dick, these guys would have their lips lovingly wrapped around all eight inches. As it is, Wayne is already working on Twatsy's.

OK, I think I just grossed myself out.

Well, Israel is sort of shaped like a dick...

Okay, I'll stop now...
