Our democrazy or no democracy – followup
It gives me some hope to find this, Some quotes (bold formatting’s my doing):
It was therefore like taking a cold shower to read that the United States and Israel are planning to starve democratically elected Hamas out of office (“Americans and Israelis aim to undo Hamas vote,” Feb. 14).
Either we believe in democracy or we don’t. The Palestinians are trying to tell us something; we ought to listen.
By driving out Hamas, opinion would only harden against America and U.S. credibility in the Muslim world would slide down one more notch.
I don’t share the author’s concerns about US credibility, though.
Go read the whole article – definitely worth it.
