Best keep issues separated. Whether or not the Israeli state is awful does not depend on whether or not Hamas is awful. It's perfectly possible for them to both be awful.
I'm being told I wouldn't be able to post this if I weren't an admin because of a blacklist entry that I know wasn't meant to have anything to do with LQT (because I wrote that entry myself). I've got no clue why the current situation matches that blacklist entry, but it's likely to be something invisibly internal to LQT. Something is sure screwed up.
