Hamas Y Mas

The award goes to Isabel Kershner and Mark Landler of the New York Times for tortured news lead of the week:
The killing of four Israeli settlers, including a pregnant woman, in the West Bank on Tuesday evening rattled Israeli and Palestinian leaders on the eve of peace talks in Washington and underscored the disruptive role that the issue of Jewish settlements could play in the already fragile negotiations.
Hooey. The killing of four settlers underscores the disruptive role that Hamas's murdering terrorists are trying to play. If there were no settlements, we are entitled to think that Hamas would just find someone else to murder. In 2008, as the Bush administration tried to broker a peace deal, it was children in a library in East Jerusalem.
