Death in Gaza and the character of Hamas

I'm not keen to add to the internet sewer on this subject so I'll be brief: the latter simply cannot be held to justify the former.

Endlessly repeating that Hamas are constitutionally committed to the destruction of the state of Israel simply isn't good enough. Notions of proportionality cannot be dismissed so easily because there is a difference between intention and capability.

In this context, those who impute great importance to what a bunch of fuck-nuggets in Dublin choose to do in their obviously copious free-time might want to ask themselves whether they haven't lost a sense of, well, proportion.
