If he annoys leftists, it's because of how he mischaracterises their views. Some people do feel Hamas should be supported, I'm sure. Others have sympathy for the situation of their members without thinking they're some kind of force for good (or an absolute force for evil: in the same category as fundies, say). Harris lumps this range of opinion together. For me, that, more than anything else he says, is objectionable.

Perhaps I'm jumping the gun, though. I'm going on impressions, memory and the introductory text, which is not by Harris himself.
