Today's News: Hamas Incapable of Understanding Irony

Here's an example from today's YnetNews of how Hamas and the PLO live in a world all their own:
Tuesday's elections in Israel will result in "an even more extreme government," Hamas Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh said. He called on Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims to devise a united strategy to fight "Israeli extremism."...


Also on Tuesday, Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's Executive Committee said the elections in Israel will bring about an even more extreme right-wing government that will seek to destroy the possibility of peace, not only in the Israel-Palestinian arena, but in the entire region."

In an interview with Saudi newspaper Okaz, she said, "We are preparing for the worst possible scenario in light of Netanyahu's alliance with more radical figures." Ashrawi dubbed Habayit Hayehudi chairman Naftali Bennett "the settlement leader."
In fairness, Hamas and the PLO do know extremism when they see it.
