One of the more cynical left wing talking points is that Israel was responsible for Hamas. Looking back to 1992, when the current Hamas leadership were sitting outside their Red Cross tents in Lebanon and the left was pounding on Israel's door, demanding that they be let back in-- it is all too clear who was and is responsible for Hamas. The people who saved Hamas 18 years ago, are responsible for it today. The media and the diplomats who 18 years ago were claiming that deporting Hamas would somehow "radicalize" the Palestinian Arabs insured that the Hamas leaders would return to radicalize all of Gaza and the West Bank. Go and read it all.
Several years ago I resigned from my job, stored most of my belongings in my in-law's basement, and boarded a transatlantic flight with my husband.
Life in London has been interesting to say the least. I miss ice tea and Red Lobster, watching hockey and eating honey garlic wings.
I love music, literature, and good food. I am proud to be a woman, but I can't stand crazy feminists. I love politics - but do not subscribe to any particular party or politician (although there are some I like more than others). It's nice when people take me seriously - but I don't need others to validate my opinions. Fun and smart are not mutually exclusive. I firmly believe that knowledge is power.
