Claim: Like America and Israel, LP calls Hamas a terrorist entity.
In January 2006, Hamas was democratically elected as Palestine's legitimate government, what it remains today despite Israel and Washington's recognition of Fatah's coup d'etat regime under a president whose term expired 14 months ago.
Claim: LP calls hate speech legitimate for "radical" Islam and "terrorism."
Hate or any other type speech is never legitimate when it lies about or vilifies one religion in defense of another.
Claim: LP opposes applying the rule of law, due process, equal justice, civil and human rights, and fundamental democratic principles for governments or groups it opposes.
Advocating lawlessness is never legitimate under any circumstances, ever, for any reason.
