Isreal strikes at Hamas

Story: "The Israeli Army and internal security agency arrested 33 prominent West Bank Palestinians, including a minister, three lawmakers and three mayors, in raids early this morning, army officials said.

In a statement, the army described those arrested as "senior members of the Hamas terror organization," which it said "exploits governmental institutions to encourage and support terrorist activity." Miri Eisin, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of Israel, said, "We have information that connects all those arrested to terrorist activity." Another senior Israeli government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the arrests came "on the heels of concrete and genuine indications that these individuals - all of them - pose a clear and present danger to the lives of Israelis.""

Good. Go after the terrorists. Particularly those that are killing your citizens, in this case, Israelis.

And of course, Iran's Muslim-Nazistic leader sounds off:
"Ahmadinejad said Friday that "there is a group occupying the young Palestinians while the latter are defending their mothers and fathers, and presenting them as terrorists.

"Do these criminals believe in God and in the Bible? They are like beastly persons; they have no faith in God. We object to the crimes making bad use in the name of Judaism," he added in a speech to the Iranian people.""

Beastly persons... And why we are even considering using Iranian cooperation to exit Iraq is beyond me.

Using Iranian cooperation to pull out of Iraq?

Meaning...they annex the country? That's CERTAINLY plausible depending on how soon we pull out.
