Following my post about a pro-peace advert in Israeli newspapers, news reaches me of another advert that ought to concern anyone who cares about Israel and the Palestinians: this one, published in some American newspapers, telling the truth about Hamas. Until Hamas fundamentally reforms, and becomes a very different organisation, it will not have anything meaningful to contribute towards peace. It will remain to Palestinian politics what the Ku Klux Klan is to American politics. Just consider the dreadful way in which Hamas treats Palestinian people living under its rule in Gaza. Hamas has to change - and change radically - if it is achieve anything positive for the Palestinian cause. At the moment, it is a deeply unpleasant and reactionary organisation, which does not believe in peace.
