I saw this post on Understanding Each Other blog @ Understanding Each Other, Diversity and Dissent: Israel killed its subcontractor in Gaza and it blew me away. Then, did a Google search and came up with: Hamas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia History of Hamas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hamas Covenant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Q&A: What is Hamas? - CNN.com So, which one is right? The Indian version that Hamas was founded by secret Israeli machinations to counter Arafat's PLO? Or, that is was/is an independent movement? For certain, we know it's being funded and supplied by the Iranians. Is there ever going to be a chance for peace there?
