You Can't Whitewash Hamas

Despite its supporters best efforts, Hamas cannot be whitewashed by pointing to its social, medical and educational programs. They do not mask the underlying nature of Hamas as a terror organization.
One temptation is to compare Hamas to the Irish Republican Army, the IRA, that made Northern Ireland a living political hell for Great Britain for many years. Now that the IRA has joined the Brits and the Ulsterites in working out a political, instead of military, solution to the issues, many feel called upon to cloak Hamas in the same mantle as the IRA. That comparison fails in many regards per Herb Kenion in the Jerusalem Post.For all its good deeds, Hamas is still a bunch of thugs.
