So a couple of days ago, I was watching The Daily Show, where Jon Stewart made a comment that piqued my interest. It was something minor and laughed about, but it focused a little bit on what led to the current situation with Hamas and Fatah. To paraphrase what Jon said:
- Because of Palestinian violence before, the US and allies did not want to deal with a Palestine government until it became more democratic.
- Well, there was an democratic election, and Hamas, an anti-Isreal political party seen as a terrorist faction by the US, won.
- As a result of this, the US decides not to deal with Hamas and focus instead on Fatah, a more moderate political party.
- Hamas, realizing that the US and allies reneged on the deal, has now taken over the West Bank, and the brouhaha continues.
So essentially this thing seems like an annoying series of planning and counterplanning. Which reminds me that this is exactly what I thought the whole of Death Note was. So all I’m wondering is there someone going
right at this moment? Maybe sometime in the future? Figuratively speaking, I mean~
