Clash Seen Over Hard Line on Islamists

Clash Seen Over Hard Line on Islamists: "Even as they closed ranks around the hawkish position, however, community leaders were voicing fears that they could be headed for a clash with Europe, moderate Arab states and possibly the Bush administration, which are seen as likely to soften their stance toward Hamas in the months ahead.
In private, too, several organizational leaders fretted that even Israel will reverse its position and temper its stance toward the militant Islamic group. That might leave the American Jewish advocacy groups alone in their anti-terrorist purism and force them to reverse a stance that they now present as a moral absolute."
