Middle East Quote of the Day

From a Washington Times story (about the changing Middle East) quoting Sheik Yazeeb Khader, a “Hamas political activist and editor”:

What happened in Gaza in 2007 is an achievement; now it is happening in 2008 in Lebanon. It’s going to happen in 2009 in Jordan and it’s going to happen in 2010 in Egypt.

It would be surprising, to say the least, if Cairo, much less Amman, came into play. But at least you get a sense of the ambition of this group, and its belief that it is on the winning side of history.
