I am writing because I don't think that Ellen deserves criticism in relation to her post, nor do I think she is being paranoid. Actually I entirely agree with Ellen in this matter. There is no benign reason why a Hammas figure who advocates the use of car bombings would be interested in orchestrating a Palestinian contribution to a Mormon dominated wide - ranging DNA Project. There is clearly something wrong with this picture. In other words, there is probably a hidden agenda, we just don't know what it is. Trust me in this one.
