Hamas fighters praying
More proof from Joseph S Spoerl in Union Leader why there can be no compromise with the implacable Jew-hatred, imperialism and genocidal intentions professed by the Muslim Brotherhood's Gaza offshoot, Hamas.
The flare-up of violence between Israel and
the Hamas state in the Gaza strip has drawn our attention again to that
volatile corner of the globe. Since the Muslim Brotherhood now controls
Egypt, and the rulers of Turkey and Qatar have openly embraced Hamas,
the current round of violence is occurring in a whole new geopolitical
context. It is more important than ever that Americans understand the
ideology of Hamas and its parent, the Muslim Brotherhood.
That ideology has two dominant features: Islamic imperialism and extreme hatred for Jews.
Egyptian founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hasan al-Banna (1906-1949),
was enraged by Western dominance of the Muslim world, since he saw this
as a reversal of the divinely mandated order by which Muslims should
rule over non-Muslims, not vice versa. Al-Banna looked back on the era
of Muslim conquests as a golden age, writing that "the Noble Qur'an
appoints the Muslims as guardians over humanity., and grants them the
right of suzerainty and dominion over the world."
Islamic law, al-Banna called upon his followers to eject Western
imperialists (including Zionists) from Muslim lands, and then to work
towards Islamic penetration and eventual control of non-Muslim countries
as well. A central goal of the Muslim Brotherhood has thus always been
the destruction of the Zionist state of Israel.
The Muslim Brotherhood
in the Palestinian territories, a.k.a. Hamas, quotes al-Banna in its
"Covenant" or statement of foundational principles: "Israel will remain
until Islam eliminates it as it eliminated its predecessors." When Hamas
and Muslim Brotherhood leaders claim that they are merely a
"resistance" movement opposed to Israeli "occupation," it is important
to recall that they believe the entire state of Israel is occupied
territory that rightfully belongs to Muslims. Their goal, therefore, is
the total destruction of Israel.
Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood
regard Israel as the product of a diabolical Jewish conspiracy to
control the world. The Hamas Covenant asserts that the Jews have taken
control of the global media and the international financial system; that
they were behind the French and Bolshevik Revolutions; that "wherever
there is war in the world, it is they who are pulling the strings;" that
they control the Freemasons, the Rotary Clubs, the Lions Clubs.
goal of the Jews is "to break societies, undermine values, destroy
people's honor, create moral degeneration, and annihilate Islam."
Zionism, the Covenant tells us, "is behind all types of trafficking in
drugs and alcohol, so as to make it easier for it to take control and
expand." As evidence of this global Jewish conspiracy the Covenant cites
the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an anti-Semitic forgery that
played a central role in Nazi propaganda and that historians rightly
describe as "a warrant for genocide."
Hamas leaders routinely
broadcast open calls for genocide against Jews on the official Hamas TV
station in Gaza. In February 2010, Abdallah Jarbu, a member of the Hamas
government, stated, "the .. Jews are thieves and aggressors . they are a
foreign bacteria - a microbe unparalleled in the world. May He (Allah)
annihilate this filthy people. I condemn whoever believes . that they
are human beings. They are not human beings. They are not people."
