The world must realize that inviting Hamas leaders to their shores whether in an official or unofficial capacity is giving Hamas legitimacy that they do not deserve. This organization of cutthroat terrorists has two goals:
- Israel’s total destruction and expulsion of its Jews.
- The establishment of an Islamic Palestinian state replacing Israel that will pass discriminatory legislation against non-Moslems.
Mahmoud Ahmadinajad has made no bones about his desire to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth”. Khaled Mashal, the Hamas leader and ideologue who lives in Damascus, Syria, has uttered similar sentiments.
It is a known fact that, Hamas and its anti-Jewish allies have embarked on a road of expressing anti-Jewish (Israel) rhetoric and this is expressed at every opportunity. Only recently, Iran held a competition for anti-Semitic cartoons whose nature resembles the Der Steurmer cartoons of Nazi Germany. It may be a good idea to read the article by Prahu Guptara in the Pearcey Report as to what is happening in the rogue states like Iran. If anything, the resemblance of the “Evil Axis” regimes (Hamas of Palestine, Bashar Assad of Syria and Mahmoud Ahmadinajad of Iran) to the Nazi genocide motivations against Jews is obvious. These countries are whipping up religious hysteria in order to rabble rouse their populations into accepting these megalomaniac despots to ignore the economic woes of their respective countries. They blame Israel and the Jews for the failures of their countries. The Nazis in Germany used this familiar tactic against the Jews for the spiraling inflation and economic catastrophe prior to their democratic elections in 1933 that resulted in their election to the Reichstag (Parliament).
Jews in the Diaspora observe Holocaust Remembrance Day to perpetuate the memory of those who perished under Nazi rule because they were Jews. The world of nations must also view this day in a modern context by condemning genocide against any people. There must be condemnation of the cynical use of the Holocaust by modern racist movements as represented by Hamas and their terrorist allies, including the “Evil Axis”. The invitations extended to Hamas to visit countries in order to explain their ideological stand ought to be treated with the contempt that it deserves. It further legitimizes Islamist terrorism and genocide. Hamas are not freedom fighters for the Palestinian cause but racists who wish to enforce extreme medieval ideologies on the people they claim to represent.
