'Europe promotes promiscuity and political hypocrisy'

Hamas Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar told al-Reuters on Thursday that Europe 'promotes promiscuity and political hypocrisy.'
The West has no right to tell Hamas how to govern the Gaza Strip, Mahmoud Zahar, a senior leader from the Islamist group told Reuters in an interview published Thursday.

Zahar went on to say that Islamic traditions should be respected, and charged that Europe "promotes promiscuity and political hypocrisy," according to the Reuters report. "We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion. You have no religion. You are secular," he was quoted as saying.

"You do not live like human beings... You accept homosexuality. And now you criticize us?" he went on. "We are the ones who respect women and honor women ... not you."
He's right that the West has no right to tell Hamas how to govern Gaza, but the people of Gaza do have that right and their voices are allegedly not being heard. He's right that Europe 'promotes promiscuity and political hypocrisy.' But he's wrong about Hamas respecting and honoring women.

What the West ought to do is hermetically seal Gaza and cut off all the aid money. There's no sense throwing good money after bad on a terrorist organization that won't change. But of course, the West won't do that. The religion of Liberalism (has Zahar ever heard of it?) won't allow that.

Hamas, to put it none to mildly, is a beneficiary of the West's secularism.

I don't think Mahmoud Zahar appreciates the irony of it all.
