a request

"hamas and hezbollah", it just seems to roll off the tongue of a lot of american politicians. it comes up all the time whenever they want to evoke a scary-sounding terrorist organization, even though the two are much more anti-israeli than anti-american. (hamas, as far as i can tell, has never acted violently against americans. hezbollah has not in at least a quarter century)

so the next time an american politician unders the phrase "hamas and hezbollah" when not talking about israel, i wish someone would ask him or her to explain the difference between the two. i'd love to hear any of the GOP presidential candidates try to explain that one.
