Reader's comment on Hamas, Gaza, and Israel

I got an email from someone ("David Harris") urging that I post a certain message regarding Hamas. I generally don’t post entire stories by others (the speaker’s intention as to copyright wasn’t entirely clear) but here is the web reference that he wants everyone to see about Hamas, link.  I believe that this is the "David Harris Blog". 

He says that the Huffington Post turned his article down as “not for us”.  Here is his conclusion:

So, let's be clear. The flotilla participants, whether they acknowledge it or not, are handmaidens of a terrorist regime. That regime, not Israel, is responsible for the conditions in Gaza, which may not be enviable, but are a far cry from the dire picture of starvation and stunted growth painted by the hyperbolic spokesmen. 

“Israel has only one concern, which is to ensure that Hamas, a declared enemy of Israel, does not get additional means to threaten its neighbor. That's it, pure and simple. 

“As has been said, if Hamas laid down its weapons, there would be peace. If Israel laid down its weapons, there would be no Israel. 

“The flotilla participants claim their mission is nothing more than humanitarian, but, in reality, it serves the interests of a regime that espouses terrorism, peddles anti-Semitism, and praises the memory of Osama Bin Laden.
