London mayor: Likud and Hamas are `two sides of the same coin'
London Mayor Ken Livingstone told Sky News yesterday that he does not distinguish between members of Likud and Hamas, branding them as "two sides of the same coin."

"I think it is the Israelis who are leading the stubborn line," said Livingstone, who is known for consistently criticizing Israeli policy. "The Likud and Hamas members are two sides of the same coin. They need each other in order to attract support," he said.

"Each side emphasizes the extremism of the other in order to attract sympathy," Livingstone said during an interview with Sky News.

5. Gawd, how predictable.
It's almost funny, except it's not.

And what exactly is the "Muslim agenda in this country"?
