If you want to learn about the Middle East, you need to follow the American Zionist press. For example, I did not know that Hamas is a Shi`ite group, until I read this in the New York Sun. "Also yesterday, several Palestinian Arab fishing boats sailed beyond the six-mile fishing limit that Israel's navy has maintained along the Gaza coast since Hamas, a Shiite group linked with Iran and Syria, took control of the territory in 2006." (Notice that in the other article cited, they referred to peace activists, including a Holocaust surviver, as Hamas sympathizers). (thanks David)
