Time UN woke up over Hamas

Lee Caplin (Write Back, May 4) asks: "When will people wake up and recognise that Hamas is a terrorist organisation with the sole objective of destroying Israel?"

Since the current left-liberal orthodoxy of the chattering classes accepts as unchallengeable dogma that Israel is the evil source of all instability in the world today, this is unlikely ever to happen - it simply goes against one of their basic axioms.

Therefore, he will have to wait a very long time before the arrival of "the day when the UN approves a motion condemning Hamas rather than Israel".

Still, miracles have happened in the past, so he should not give up all hope.
