Hamas Takes Credit for Arab Spring


The Hamas-led government in Gaza was the first experiment in Islamist rule in the region and sparked a revolutionary surge in Islamist rule, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Tuesday.

The Hamas-led government elected in 2006 was “the first model which led to the breakout of a sweeping Arab revolution in the Islamic region,” Haniyeh said at a festival to honor ministers.

And Haniyeh does have a point. If anyone does deserve credit for the Arab Spring, more than Obama, it’s Hamas which showed that American experiments in democratization could be used by the Muslim Brotherhood to take power. Before the Muslim Brotherhood took over Egypt, they took over Gaza.

Obama took a mistake that the previous administration had made in the Palestinian Authority and expanded it across the region… when the outcome was entirely clear.

The Arab Spring was always going to go the way of Gaza. And Haniyeh took time out to praise Qatar for its support. Qatar is the Al Qaeda linked tyranny that played a major role in orchestrating the Arab Spring showing once again that the Hamas takeover of Gaza was the Islamist template for the takeover of the Middle East.

    Not surprised in the least, frankly.

    ALL due credit for the Arab Nightmare/Winter should be shared by two main actors – the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia (of which Hamas is its principle disciple) and the Islamist-in-Chief. And while taquiya is the way of their world, this time they are telling the truth.

    The above are its twin pillars of(current) strength.

    So, if the western world wants to give the players their due props, go right to the main sources – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/27/northeast-int

    And the fact that Islamists of all stripes revel in their blood lust, makes their victory that much more inevitable -http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/13/muslim-blood-lust-boundless-no-excuses-needed-yet-western-third-world-devoteesappeasers-supply-them-addendum-to-islam-and-blood-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

    Westerners do not stand a chance, unless they reverse course. Meaning, an Islamic reformation must take place, led by strong American leadership. And that, dear readers, will NOT happen under the Islamist-in-Chief's stewardship/tutelage – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/12/calling-for-a

    It may have been realized that america does not have to fight wars to kill muslims, controls on the muslims can be removed and they can slaughter each-other without any non-muslims having to fuel up a vehicle. Maybe this is what has been done. Once the slaughter of sunnis vs shiites was witnessed first hand many americans pleaded for a withdrawal of troops so they may slaughter each-other, massaccre eachothers towns, and tourture eachother in ways no european or american would sully himself doing.

    Do we not all feel a dislike of the arabs and the muslims? Now knowing how they look down upon the "kafir" (liar in arabic, hebrew, and maybe even phonican (hebrew and arabic are dialects of phonican)), which is us, and have a wish in their heads to reconquer, knowing that they feel themselves better than us, do we not wish them the worst and most protracted destruction available.

    I believe that we hate them, and we want to make sure that stable or friendly governments do not exist in the region. This way our hate for them, born of their religious dislike of us, will become reality in their actions against eachother – which we will watch.

    They say they can have our women and young girls, but we cannot have anything of theirs.
    They will burn. They will burn eachother. The decision is almost complete. We hate them. This new generation does not like muslims, because we have learned their doctrinal dislike of us.

    Obama has decided that they will destroy eachother as that is what is most painful for them and least painful for us. I think that's what is happening.

    I have said it before and I will say it again the Arab Spring was an operation against China, this is collateral damage the Arab Spring. Greenlight for that.

    That is a US defeat, you don't go to that sort of trouble to lose. Now the economy must turn around.

  • Matt

    Because you are going to lose, we are talking about how much of the Strategic Triangle, Rose, Johnston Atoll etc, Guam. I what planet you are on. 60 percent of puss but the Russians that only leaves the PLA with what. So it is not 60 percent of the field. I don't know how you whack up 50 percent into three.

  • Matt

    People know very little of the pivot, he has no clear idea of why, things like that are not left to them, Iraq finished, Afghan the plan before it was messed with, Jews Iran, the future energy security of the US. Dogs, backstabbers, disloyal. But that stuff was signed into protection. Now we are splitting three ways.

    Re the photograph of the Hamas "warriors": I've never understood the purpose of those Wal-Mart brand dishtowel masks. Are they just costume, or do they serve a purpose? Do they serve the same purpose as Nazi kepis, or is it because terrorists are fashion-challenged? I'm supposing they have some historic origin, such as the Arab desert dress, but they look so bogus and pointless. I know it isn't because their wearers are worried that their faces will wind up on U.S. post office "wanted" notices.
