What’s Hamas Most Lethal Weaponry?

Thursday, January 1, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Israel’s apparent intention to pursue the complete toppling of Hamas presents the terrorist group with every incentive to use whatever it has in its arsenal against Israel.

So, what does that arsenal contain? The concern has been that Gaza would be turned intoi a vast WMD complex, but I have never seen any reporting that the terrorists had been able to achieve any sort of manufacturing capability. Reuel Marc Gerecht’s Weekly Standard article from earlier this month is important background on the general subject of the Islamists’ technical gap, but as the battle in Gaza escalates, so too will be the temptation for Hamas to use whatever it has in its storerooms.

Please send any pointers on the subject to


ThreatsWatch’s Steve Schippert, who also writes for NRO’s The Tank, sends along this disconcerting link.

Jim e-mails this background on the Hamas arsenal.

The History of Ideas with Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn –Day 2

Thursday, January 1, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Not surprisingly yesterday’s three hour conversation with Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn on the history of ideas sparked an outpouring of e-mails requesting a transcript. The same will follow today’s broadcast of part 2 of the conversation. It happens every year.

There is no transcript, but for the first time there is a CD of the six hour broadcast available from the Hugh Store.

Duane will guest host tomorrow, a sort of delayed Boxing Day for producers. I’ll be back next week, with a focus on Israel’s move to topple Hamas and on the future of the evangelical movement in American politics.

Happy New Year

2009 is already begun in Australia.

The radio program celebrates the end of ’08 and the beginning of ’09 with the two-day broadcast of an extended interview with Dr. Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College, on the greatest ideas and thinkers of all time. Make a resolution to listen today and tomorrow and hear a small bit of the large story of the West and how it came to be –through the force of ideas. Happy New Year.
