In the service of Your Majesty or in the service of a terrorist organization?

It is so easy in this case: no need to invent headlines, no need to explain: everything set up so simple and clear, that the only thing to do is to remind self the definition of irony (which, they say, is so beloved by the Brits):

  1. Witty language used to convey insults or scorn
  2. Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs
  3. A trope that involves incongruity between what is expected and what occurs
And now all that remains is to quote:
Hamas admits to being behind the legal proceedings initiated in Europe in which arrest warrants were issued for Israeli public figures for allegedly committing war crimes.

British newspaper speaks with Diya al-Din Madhoun, who heads the Hamas committee set up to coordinate the campaign to issue arrest warrants against Israeli public figures in European courts. 'All the political and military leaders of the occupation in our sights'.
The soft belly of democracy is not in danger already: it is being actively consumed by the predators who are so much more inventive than the slow and ponderous minds of the enlightened, fat and defenseless Western world.

Too bad.
