Hamas’s own Founding Charter explicitly calls for the permanent annihilation of Israel and the genocide of the Jews. This principle is non-negotiable.
Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said in 2010, “Israel’s ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 … a crisis of historic proportions.” In 2012, Israeli lawmaker Danny Danon said that Obama had “not been a friend of Israel,” and that the President’s policies had been “catastrophic.”
When leftist economic and social policies result in catastrophe, the architects of those policies typically cite the bad conditions as evidence that their programs simply have not been implemented as fully as they need to be. And voters, in turn, are persuaded to vote for more of the same. This phenomenon has a name: “The Curley Effect.”
