Confirmed: Hamas not a Palestinian savior. Mark Levin interviews son of Hamas founder
Then, after you listen to it, pass it along. Especially to Democrats, who Levin points out elsewhere are in a Pew poll (predictably) drawing moral equivalencies between a worldwide terror movement, bent on creating a permanent Islamic Caliphate, that is being allowed to disguise itself as an underdog nationalist movement in the Palestinian territories — with the aid of our insufferably dull, incurious, or outright anti-Zionist progressive-infested media — and an actual democratic nation state that is being forced to fight a war in ways no other nation would ever have to fight a war, particularly when that war is against an enemy who in its very charter has as one of its goals the eradication of Israel and the Jews.
Such are the wages of a relativistic, anti-foundational epistemic paradigm being fed to minds prepared for such dishonest nonsense early on by the daily doses of PC “teachable moments.”
According to Mosab Hassan Yusef, son of the Hamas founder (who has since disowned him), Hamas — as many of us here understand, but as many who get their information from a tacitly anti-Semitic press mainstream press would not — cares not a whit for the Palestinian people, who it uses as part of a ploy to draw international sympathy to a local cause it isn’t actually interested in achieving. And that’s because Hamas as a movement is not a nationalist movement; it is instead an ideological, religious fundamentalist movement intent on global domination and perpetual jihad against the “unclean.”
Mosab Hassan Yusef rejected those aims and for a while joined with Israeli intelligence to prevent suicide bombings. He is now a guest in the United States, though his criticism of Obama’s attitude toward Hamas (he is careful to say he “loves Obama” but believes him mistaken, rather than intentionally malignant, on the Jewish Question) could lead to problems for him.
The fact of the matter is — and I had some “nuanced” libertarian on Twitter the other day challenging me to name one way that Obama has shown himself a Jew-hater — the State Department under Kerry, presumably with Obama’s full support, went around Israel and Egypt and tried to broker a ceasefire with the aid of Qatar and Turkey that would have prevented Israel from completing the task of destroying the tunnel system set up by Hamas to infiltrate Israeli borders and kill as many people as it can. It has also given money to Qatar and Hamas, which it continues to pretend is a legitimate governmental party; it isn’t. And the fact that the Palestinian people voted it into power just means that they are going to have to reap the consequences of their own votes.
The way to end the problems in Gaza are to allow the Israelis to level the place. To lay waste to the tunnels, to obliterate the enemy, no matter where they hide and without further risking the lives of their own soldiers needlessly in some feint to “international pressure” (itself a PC tool of anti-Zionism) until the “Palestinians” themselves recognize that electing Hamas to a governmental leadership role was a terrible mistake. That Hamas hides behind what they consider propaganda props — women, children, civilians, in schools and hospitals — is odious enough without the “westernized” media playing along in these kind of Goebbels games. Israel should, for the good of humanity itself, as Mosab Hassan Yusef argues, work to defeat Hamas; and the free world should remain steadfastly behind Israel as it does so.
Me, I say go full-on Dresden. Not because I like to see Arabs killed, as one kike-hating liberal commentator dared suggest; but rather because the way to destroy a terrorist movement is to kill all the terrorists in it and convince those they hide among (or in the case of the Palestinians in Gaza, presume to represent, whether elected or not) that having such murderous would-be TRUE colonialists in their midst will bring dire consequences.
Level the place. Salt the earth behind you. And let the craters and the barren land stand as a warning to those who for so long have relied on Israel’s restraint, itself a product of a Nazi-esque propaganda campaign imbibed and nurtured by leftwing journos.
Reports have surfaced that Obama phoned Netanyahu and, while shouting at him, demanded an immediate ceasefire, the upshot of which would have given Hamas time to regroup and perhaps stop Israel from finishing the job of clearing out the tunnel system from which Hamas was launching attacks.
What one can glean from this is twofold: first, that Obama is a better friend to the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots than he is to Israel; and second, that Obama’s entrenched (and bogus) belief in Israeli colonialism — a view he developed having drank from Edward Said’s poisonous tit [ed - longtime readers will recall that I often point to Said's Orientalism as the academic justification for an identity politics that disallows as legitimate any criticism expressed by those not aligned with the official identity narrative] and then had reinforced by the horrific radical chic leftist “academics” like Khalidi with whom he surrounded himself — is every bit as pernicious and active as his “spiritual advisor” Reverend Wright could have ever hoped for.
It’s time for Israel to recognize that while most of the American people are behind them, many Democrats who hold an opinion are not. And so it’s time to ignore the imperial counsel of Obama and do what needs to be done to win, because Obama is the face of the New Left Democrat Party, the sixties radicals that worked to take over the “bourgeois Democratic Party” from within.
The son of Hamas’ founder has come to the conclusion that Israel has an obligation to destroy Hamas. Why is it so difficult for those of us who have never had to live as the Israelis have to reach a similar, obvious conclusion?
More, it is important to remember, as Levin repeatedly points out, that one of the most influential Muslim “civil rights” groups in the US, CAIR — unindicted co-conspirators in the Holyland Terror trial — is a creation of Hamas and is its propaganda and agitating front group in the US. That they haven’t sued him for repeatedly making this allegation publicly is itself telling, as this is a group whose litigiousness is only outdone by its phony moderation.
These facts may prove inconvenient to many on the left, or to many Democrats who rely on a leftist press to get what they may still believe to be objective news. But that doesn’t change its basic truthfulness. Hamas doesn’t care about “Palestine,” just as no anti-Israeli Arabs really ever have. Instead, they use it as a prop to keep hatred aimed at the Jews.
The rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and now here in the US is troubling. The scapegoat is once again being prepared for the slaughter. And so it is important — or rather, crucial — that people learn just who and what Hamas is; just who and what the Muslim Brotherhood is; and just what ties and alliances our own government has nurtured with these terrorists.
When Michele Bachmann among others came out and questioned the influence the Brotherhood was having on our foreign policy, she was brutalized…by Republicans, among them the ever-wrong John McCain and the ever timorous John Boehner.
What we need do is find independent journalists who can literally pull back the veil on this in-country alliance that is putting our allies in harm’s way and that Obama, by his actions, believes are justified inasmuch as they’ll “level the playing field” when it comes to regional power.
We are living with a Manchurian candidate in the Oval Office. We have a Secretary of State who was a traitor to his own military brothers. And we have a media that gives them — and the rest of the hard New Leftists controlling the Democrat party — repulsive cover.
So please: spread the interview far and wide. Let those who only get their news from the major networks hear from a man who was raised in the movement and whose father was its founder — a man who knows what Hamas is and what its goals truly are.
The truth will set us free. Which is why those who don’t much care for all the problems that arise when we allow a free people to act in their own interests are so committed to keeping the truth obfuscated.
War is hell. And it needs to feel like that for it to be effective.
