Hamas is doing a crappy job running Gaza. Surprise!
Quote of the day from Mark Krikorian, his conclusion about what this means for the touching hopefulness of the Arab Springers who are sweeping Islamists into power
As I never tire of pointing out, the only way Islam will reform itself is for Islamists to come to power and for the people to finally learn, deep down in their bones, what a dead end Islam is in the modern world, as an increasingly large share of the Iranian people have finally come to realize. This isn’t going to happen quickly, nor will it be pretty, but it’s the only way — no amount of invading by us or earnest lectures from pseudo-Muslims living in the West is going to change the cultural mindset of people in the Islamic world.
