Comment is Free is a quasi-blog - somewhere between a giant group blog and a blog-provider - run by the Guardian newspaper. The Guardian is known as being a liberal paper. Comment is Free is not a site of reportage but an opinion site.
Hamas is a political organization the character of which is indicated in part by its charter. In this document, you will find reference to the notorious anti-Semitic forgery 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' and to the old theme of a Jewish plan to dominate the world:
Today it is Palestine and tomorrow it may be another country or other countries. For Zionist scheming has no end, and after Palestine they will covet expansion from the Nile to the Euphrates. Only when they have completed digesting the area on which they will have laid their hand, they will look forward to more expansion, etc. Their scheme has been laid out in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and their present [conduct] is the best proof of what is said there.The Hamas charter also refers to the 'Nazism of the Jews' and to Jews as 'merchants of war'. It says that 'Israel, by virtue of its being Jewish and of having a Jewish population, defies Islam and the Muslims'. It proclaims:
Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah's promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!Well, so... Comment, after all, is free. And this is a point of view. Let's give the guys a platform.
If that is the shape of liberalism, show me the shape of a public disgrace.
