This is Islam. I understand and am glad that many Muslims want to practice their faith differently, but they don't drive the religion these days. Barrak and those who think like him have the power and the conviction.
Also, this observation from Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of one of the founders of Hamas, expresses what should be obvious to all but somehow eludes most of the left: "Hamas cannot make peace with the Israelis. That is against what their God tells them." The "peace process" can't succeed, and whenever Muslims talk about it (as here) they dissimulate.
