"A misplaced reticence and a condescending desire not to offend"

The issue is identity politics.

When you deal with identity groups and the only metric is perceived power then the Palestinians are judged the less powerful and so there is no need to understand or judge their words or actions. They are not held to any standard because they are judged the victims.

Sure you might momentarily embarrass some PSC supporter by pointing out the core nastiness of Hamas, but they didn't arrive at their support by judging the aims and methods of Hamas. They are not asking whether Hamas can be a partner for peace. If anything, the shear xenophobia of Hamas is further proof of how driven they are, how helpless, and therefore how just their cause is.
