I GUESS THE FRENCH STILL DON'T GET IT

French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin is a total weasel.

It seems that he can perform the same sort of mind trick many in the UK successfully did for years. What trick? Well, for years many Brits felt that Sinn Fein, the "political" wing (as opposed to the "military/terrorist" wing) of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was sufficiently separate from the terrorist acts that it could be considered benign. They were wrong. Sinn Fein was/is the PR wing of the IRA.

de Villepin is now arguing that the political wing of Hamas should not be considered a terrorist organaization. Why? Because they wear nice suits? Please read this article in the Jersalem Post. Am I wrong? Is this guy just a lame poster boy for appeasement?
