Hamas to build tribute to terrorism

The New York Sun brings us a prime example of what happens when a nation tries to appease it's enemies:

WASHINGTON - Emboldened by Israel's withdrawal from Gaza and part of the West Bank, Hamas yesterday announced its plan to turn a synagogue in Netzarim into a museum that would display weapons employed by the terrorist group's members against Israeli civilians.

A statement issued yesterday by Hamas said, "Qassam rockets and other locally made arms will be exposed, since it is the legal weapon that evicted the occupation forces." The Middle East Media Research Institute yesterday reported that recent sermons delivered by Hamas leaders pledged to resist efforts from the Palestinian Authority to disarm the organization ahead of upcoming elections.

Never make deals with terrorists. These guys were raised from their youth to embrace violence so it should come as no surprise that they are now are building a shrine to it. I can only imagine what the gift shop for this museum will look like.

Incidentally, why is the U.N. not condemning this? Can you imagine the outcry if Jewish leaders tried to convert a mosque to a museum celebrating the 1967 war?
