Hamas' Moscow Trip Angers Israel

Hamas' Moscow Trip Angers Israel - Yahoo! News: "A top-level Hamas delegation will travel to Moscow next week for meetings with Russian officials, a Hamas official said Friday, part of the militant group's efforts to gain international legitimacy after sweeping a Palestinian parliamentary election.

Russia's invitation to Hamas angered Israel, which is seeking to isolate the militant group after its victory in the Jan. 25 election. Israel also condemned Turkey after Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul met in Ankara with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal.

Hamas, responsible for dozens of suicide bombings in Israel, is sworn to the destruction of the Jewish state. Israel, the United States and the European Union list Hamas as a terrorist organization."

WHAT???? Russia is apparently becoming, not our ally. Giving Iran nueclear material, snuggling with Hamas, and involved with the old school Iraq, Russia is also no longer a democracy, thanks to Mr. Putin.
