Of Tails And Dogs

I am very pleased if there really is to be a Hamas ceasefire. But watch out for the people who aren't. They won't be on the Islamist side, nor will most of them be Israeli.

With this and with the Obama candidacy, we have the double opportunity to insist that the tiny little tail that is a (not terribly grateful) minority even within the extremely small country in question, itself the most militarised on earth and with hundreds of nuclear weapons, will no longer be permitted to wag the dog that is at least two, and increasingly three, permanent seats on the UN Security Council.

  1. You can't negotiate with Hamas, just like you can't negotiate with Iran. You can only negotiate with UNelected governments in the Mid East, like the Saudis. Ain't that so, George?
