Why support Hamas? [Archives:2004/743/Letters to the Editor]

It seems to me that the people and government leaders of Palestine really do support Hamas, which is an organization recognized around the world as a ruthless and brutal terrorist body. The leaders of Palestine have vehemently claimed that they are not associated with this group, yet the entire Muslim community seems to be mourning the recent deaths of two Hamas leaders.
Let's not forget that Hamas has wrecked much death and destruction during the Palestinian/Israeli conflict too.
