Reply to "Hamas shakes up Mideast politics"

When I heard this story this morning, I was struck by a thought ... Hamas is the Palistinian equivalent to the Black Panther Party of the late 60's'early 70's.

Just as the Panther Party was protrayed by the media as a radical violent organization, the truth has it that Hamas' primary function is the provision of food, shelter and social services to Palistinian people without regard to whether the beneficiaries support their anti-zionist agenda.

Sure, Hamas has members that blow stuff up; but Israel promotes bull-dozing housing with people in it. And, I may be mistaken here, but I don't recall a single incident in the 2000's where Hamas has been tied as an organization to a terrorist act.
