Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal on Monday called for an Arab and Muslim alliance to defeat the United States and Israel.

"Our battle is with two sides, one of them is the strongest power in the world, the United States, and the second is the strongest power in the region (Israel)," he told hundreds of people at the al-Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp near Damascus.

The odd thing about Hamas, and many of the rest of the Palestinian terrorists, is how detached from any sort of reality they are. After having two of your top people blown away in less than a month it would be reasonable to ask whether or not you really needed more enemies. But not Hamas. No, for Hamas it is always about continuing the fight. Sending more, poor, ignorant people into Israel to scatter body parts.

The Palestinians need real leadership and that leadership has to have a firm grasp on reality. Terrorist dreamers are simply ensuring that Israel will not negotiate and that the United States has no basis to suggest that negotiation is the best solution.

Ultimately, Hamas is not the problem. The Palestinian Authority (sic) is. And, until the Troll of Ramallah (TM) has been sent to his reward there is next to no chance that a realist leadership will emerge. Which simply means more years of misery for the Palestinians.
