Take a good look

Haaretz publishes today a closer look at some of the Hamas characters. Take a look at this Troika:

A few quotes from the CVs of each one:

Ismail Haniyeh. He had served as bureau chief for Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Hamas' founder.

Doesn't Yassin have a need of a bureau chief where he is?

Dr. Mahmoud Zahar. He has been the target of two Israeli assassination attempts...

Maybe it is third time lucky, eh?

Mohammed Abu Tir. He was released from an Israeli jail six months ago after having served 22 years...

What kind of a number is 22? Why not come back for a round 50? After all, that Technicolor beard surely made him one of the most popular cellmates.
