Annie Lennox is a Useful Idiot

Singer Annie Lennox has emerged a leading apologist for the Palestinians.

Last weekend, Lennox spoke at a rally in London's Trafalgar Square. She held up a picture of injured Palestinian children and asked, "Is this a solution to a peaceful revolution? I don't think so. I don't think so." So the former Eurythmics lead singer thinks Hamas is leading a peaceful revolution? Well, at the conclusion of her remarks she accused Israel of committing "genocide." (

The day before the rally Lennox was interviewed on Sky News (which is the Fox News Channel's sister station in Great Britain) and she seemed clueless. Lennox acknowledged that Hamas had launched rockets into Israel and said there needed to be a ceasefire. The interviewer (whose name I did not catch) reminded Lennox that there had been a ceasefire and that Hamas had broken the ceasefire. She asked Lennox, who was once married to an Israeli, how one gets through a terrorist organization. Lennox then pleaded she wasn't a politician and didn't have a solution. (Well, that doesn't stop most politicians.) She could only say, "You have to try." (

Oh yes, Hamas is all about being reasonable. All that stuff about obliterating Israel is just a bargaining chip. Perhaps Lennox would care to consult the Hamas Charter which reads:

The so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement....There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad.

Then again I'm sure this would be lost on Lennox. She would probably speak of Palestinian civilian deaths and chant, "Give peace a chance." In the real world, the sweet dreams of Hamas is to see Israel driven to the sea and replaced with an Islamic Palestinian state.

Annie Lennox is without any doubt a useful idiot.
