Hamas is Not Mohamed
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday April 12, 2006

I'm Predicting:

Six members of the new Palestinian Parliament are in Iran right now.

They are trying to get Iran and then the entire Muslim world all fired up about negative world reaction to Hamas and the resulting plight of the Palestinians.
They want the same Muslim energy expended on the Palestinians as was expended on the war against the caricatures of Mohamed.

It's not going to happen.
It won't happen because Iran promises big but delivers little for the Palestinians.
It won't happen because, quite frankly, Hamas is not Mohamed.

But they will settle for less.
They want Iran to pick up the slack economically where the West has stopped. They want to ask other Muslim countries to help economically.
They want to activate Muslim countries to start a series of protests on their behalf.

If Hamas can shape the entire package as an anti-West campaign, if they can present the West as out to destroy Islam, the mission to Iran may have some success.
But I doubt they can do it.
In the end, expect no more than a protest or two on Hamas' behalf.
