Merry Christmas from Hamas

According to columnist Caroline Glick at the Jerusalem Post:
On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shari'a criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion.

Hamas's endorsement of nailing enemies of Islam to crosses came at the same time it renewed its jihad. Here, too, Hamas wanted to make sure that Christians didn't feel neglected as its fighters launched missiles at Jewish day care centers and schools. So on Wednesday, Hamas lobbed a mortar shell at the Erez crossing point into Israel just as a group of Gazan Christians were standing on line waiting to travel to Bethlehem for Christmas.

Read the whole article, Column One: The 'realist' fantasy. It is disturbing.

My grandfather talked about how during WWII the western reports of the concentration camps were so horrible he and others figured it was propaganda. When our soldiers got to the camps they were actually much worse than reported. Maybe Hamas and their ilk are similar -- so bad we tend to not believe it.
