I know nothing about the site. I did a search for 'Hamas Charter' - a well
know document - and it came up.

Nothing to do with me - I was simply pointing out the murderous and extreme
nature of Hamas. The same document is well known and available from a
variety of sources including  http://www.mideastweb.org/hamas.htm  and

See: http://www.google.com/search?q=hamas+charter

Whatever. What do you make of *my* comments on Hamas?

Incorrect. I believe it is wrong to forward e-mails from known terrorists
calling for more terror. As for legality, I simply pointed out that such an
action may be illegal in the UK under the Terrorism Act 2000. The original
e-mailer is based in the UK.

You appear to be saying that the messenger is the message? Surly some

As I have pointed out above, the Hamas Charter was all I was presenting - I
know nothing about the rest of the site that particular copy resides on. The
content of the site - except for the Hamas Charter -  is irrelevant to my

Alternative - red herring resistant - versions are available elsewhere. See

Lebanese militiamen carried out the massacres, not Sharon or even the IDF.
It is a very weak chain of responsibility that links Sharon to those

But who cares about Sharon? Not me. We were discussing real blood and burned
flesh terrorists - Hamas. What are your thought on them?

So what?
