The Zionist Conspiracy
Thursday, March 23, 2006
An op-ed in today's New York Times by Gideon Lichfield, the Jerusalem correspondent for The Economist, illustrates the willful naivete of Europeans toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Lichfield writes that "some fear" that "Hamas in fact harbors long-term plans to destroy the Jewish state."
Hamas has repeatedly expressed its desire to destroy Israel and never budged from this position. It's European media outlets like The Economist and European governments that refuse to listen to what Hamas says, instead labeling those of us who do take Hamas seriously as overly fearful and paranoid.
