The good folks at NRO pointed out this clip of Andrew McCarthy and Imman Kringle. McCarthy points out that many Muslims draw a distinction between "terrorism" which they profess to deplore, and "resistance" which is undertaken against non-Muslims. Watch how Imman Kringle dodges the question of whether Hamas is a terrorist organization.

Kringle's argument is a distinction without a difference. It reminds me of the arguments Sinn Fein used to make that it should not be held accountable for the terrorist actions of the IRA.

How about this trade: Ground Zero mosque for a Christian church somewhere, anywhere, in Saudi Arabia. Just to show that tolerance goes both ways. I won't even ask for a synagogue.

Imman Kringle's point about Hamas being a political party warrant a response, or as Samuel L. Jackson's "Pulp Fiction" character would say "...well, allow me to retort!":

When Hamas won an election in Gaza, one of their responses was to throw their Fatah rivals off rooftops. Was that the action of a peaceful political party? Or just some people on the fringe?
