Hamas and Women --
Via Noli Irritare Leones comes this veiled4allah post about women's rights and Hamas, citing female politicians such as a Hamas MP whose priorities are opposing forced marriages and economic/educational roadblocks to women and a leftist Christian mayor of a West Bank municipality who was elected with the support of Hamas.

My point in posting this? Just that people don't always fit neatly into the boxes we would like to put them into. Muslim women fully committed to Hamas's aims and tactics can still want to work to improve women's rights in their society. Christian Marxist women may choose to work with Hamas - and Hamas with them. Few groups or people are entirely evil. We can condemn where they go wrong (as I do) and also recognize when they do good things and encourage them to give up on the wrong and work to increase the right.
