The Holocaust and Hamas

Today there is no doubt that one can view Hamas as part of the “Evil Axis”. Their fight for freedom from the occupation of Israel for an independent Palestinian State pales into insignificance. Even if there were no occupation, there would be hostility towards Israel. The Hamas idea of an independent Palestinian state is really a state replacing Israel. In order to obtain their objective, non-recognition of Israel is an essential basic element of their ideology to attain this goal. It is only natural that Hamas would ally itself with all the Israel hating countries in order to establish an evil alliance. This “evil axis” is becoming more Islamist oriented rather than a fight for the liberation of Palestine. The countries belonging to this “evil axis” are Syria, Iran, elements in Iraq aligned with Al Qaeda and they are inviting new members as well.

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:

  1. Israel’s total destruction and expulsion of its Jews.

  2. 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.

Dear Reb Shimon

Not bad from a dyed in the wool lifetime lefty.

Its spot on and excellent. My only reservation is the following sentence "Their fight for freedom from the occupation of Israel". What bothers me is that it buys into their propaganda. It is a well know but never remembered or mentioned fact that they always had and continue to have a chance to have their own state. They don't have to fight, struggle or whatever. Simply put, all they have to do is want a state and make peace with Israel. I am telling you the obvious. My point is not to promote the easily understood but untruthful propaganda of their great struggle. I would like you to be very aware of your use of language and its implications when you write, which you do so well. Their propaganda is so easy to pick up and use and it passes into what is "conventional wisdom', but still not the truth.

Kindest regards,

Excellent posting. Very truthful and articulate. The only thing I found disconcerting is the statement, "Even if there were no occupation, there would be hostility towards Israel." This is just the point. There is no occupation, for there never was an Arab Palestinian state. Attempts to create a Palestinian state are to resolve the conflict, but certainly not to end any occupation on Israel's part. The facts of history lucidly point this out. As Zac said, statements like these play into the hands of the propagandists.
