Hamas and Osama Bin Laden
Amidst the international celebration of the successful assassination of Osama Bin Laden by US special forces, the official response of Hamas has all but been ignored by the major news carriers (such as CNN and BBC).
It is commonly understood that the attack on the Twin Towers, and the subsequent Al Qaeda bloody attacks on (mainly Muslim) targets throughout the world, including Indonesia, Iraq, Bali, Spain and England…leaving literally tens of thousands of innocent murdered victims, was so utterly evil, that therefore the assassination of Bin Laden was clearly a victory for civilization…
However, this is not the way Hamas and their supporters view it.
A decade ago, when news of the 9/11 Twin Towers atrocity reached Gaza, the Gazans spontaneously danced on the roof tops, in the streets and handed out candies to kids to celebrate.
And now, in response to Bin Laden's assassination, the following statement was reported from Hamas:
The Hamas prime minister of the
strip, Ismail Haniya, said: “We condemn the assassination of a Muslim and Arab warrior and we pray to God that his soul rests in peace. Gaza
“We regard this as the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs.”
Hamas and their supporters (comprising an electoral majority in BOTH the West Bank and Gaza) are firmly committed to Jihad against Israel, America, and even against their fellow Muslims around the world.
The widely acclaimed Palestinian Authority (PLO) kiss-and-make-up agreement with Hamas, which was brokered last week by the new Military Government in Egypt, is intrinsically an endorsement by those three parties of the "heroism of the martyr” Bin Laden - and gives their active and combined support for orchestrated and institutionalized global terror.
Far from peacefully taking its place amongst the "family of nations", the pending Palestinian State will resemble the already Jihadist Gaza, and yesteryear's nightmare Talibanist + Al Qaeda Afghanistan.
Terror leaders must not embraced - they must be eliminated.
And terror states must not be CREATED - they must be defeated.
