Mod­er­ate wing?

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Martin Himel’s doc­u­men­tary, Eye­less in Gaza, is im­por­tant not sim­ply be­cause it shows the ex­tent to which Ha­mas in­tim­i­dated jour­nal­ists dur­ing the 2014 Gaza War and skewed the global nar­ra­tive sur­round­ing the con­flict, but be­cause of the clar­ity with which it de­picts Ha­mas. It also puts in con­text much of the re­port­ing this week of the elec­tion of Yahya Sin­war as the Ha­mas leader in Gaza. This has been por­trayed as some sort of ex­trem­ist tri­umph over Ha­mas’s more mod­er­ate wing. But there is no ‘mod­er­ate wing’ of Ha­mas, sim­ply vari­a­tions in tac­tics with which to wipe out Israel and the Jews.
