My Mideast Punchlines: so what’s new?

Hamas announced that, as widely expected, Ismail Haniyeh was elected chairman of the terror group’s Politburo. It’s not clear when Haniyeh will formally take over the position, replacing Khaled Mashaal.

So Hamas replaces leader committed to Israel’s destruction with leader committed to Israel’s destruction. Politburo — don’t you just love that word? Seems to imply that with Hamas it’s all just politics. In reality, there’s no difference between Hamas’ ‘Politburo’ and its military wing. Two ends of the same rocket, so to speak.
