The “militant wing” of the official, duly-elected government of the Palestinians has declared war on the United States.

Naturally, the “political wing” of the very same organization is busily establishing “plausible deniability” from the people making the threats to attack Americans and American interests around the world.

Of course, they both answer to the name “Hamas,” have the same boss back in Syria, and all too often coordinate their statements and actions, but they’re really not the same organization. Honest. As separate and as different as Ford and Lincoln-Mercury.

I am curious to see how this will be played out by the media and the new presumptive leadership in Congress, who have an “advise and consent” duty on foreign policy, as well as the power to declare war, as well as influence policy in other ways. It’s a good test of just how seriously the Democrats take their new responsibilities.
