Cartoon #241: “Hamas”

Title: Hamas; Text: (Panel 1, Bush says) Without democracy in the Middle East, the terrorists win! (Panel 2, Bush looks at paper, reading) Palestine election results... (Panel 3, Bush says) The terrorist won.

The Palestinian elections resulted in the landslide election of the radical militant group Hamas. The Bush administration called them a terrorist group and threatened to cut off financial aid unless Hamas renounced armed violence and the destruction of Israel. The Bush foreign policy has again shown that democracy in the Middle East is a simplistic policy at best.

  2. The comment was acceptable. It said, "Typical Republican, we want democracy as long as we agree with who you choose." But the poster's linked profile contained self-promotional comments suggesting possible questionable solicitation.
