No Terrorism From Fatah!?

An editorial in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is hopeful that the terrorist group Hamas, which is dedicated to the destruction of Israel, will undergo a political evolution. It urges the encouragement of Hamas to join the political process, in hopes that this will cause the organization to be transformed into a peaceful one (cue the doves).

This editorial loses all credibility with the following statement:
Unlike Fatah, however, Hamas is still in the terrorism business...
Okay, now pick your jaw up off of the floor. Since when has Fatah given up the terrorism business? For one thing, Fatah supports the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, which is responsible for a multitude of terrorist attacks. I could go on and on, but I think it's pretty obvious that the editorial writer is either ignorant or delusional. Fatah is near the top of the Fortune 500 of terrorism.
