This "informed" writer of that Juan Cole blog is uninformed about quite a lot. He's promoting the same old myth that's been circulating for years.

He is opinionated, one-sided, and clearly in favor of mixing radical religious extremism into the multiple causes of the ongoing struggles in the area. While religion is definitely a factor for Hamas, it is not for Israel. In fact, the extremists in Israel tend to be Haredim, or Ultra-Orthodox, who are opposed to Zionism.

I cannot believe you could think someone who says this is a credible source!: Oh, that’s right, it is rude to see both Palestinians and Israelis as equal human beings.
