Of course, by so designating him I stand the considerable risk of insulting morons around the world. Britain's anti-Israel Prime Minister is in Israel, and he wasted no time in insulting his hosts, lecturing them on "halting the illegal settlements", and spouting off on how economics was the root of the Palestinian problems: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080720/ap_on_re_mi_ea/mideast_brown.
Really? Has this clueless jackass not read the Hamas charter? That's a rhetorical question, because it's obvious that he has not. Hamas doesn't give a hoot about "the economy". The only thing about which it cares is killing every last Jew in Israel. End of story. He also hasn't bothered to read the newspapers, where the "moderate" leader of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, practically cried with joy at the release of baby-killer Samir Kuntar.
Gordon Brown's ignorance is typical of the European left. Israel should show him the door immmediately (but it won't, because Ehud Olmert may be even dumber than Brown).
