A pro-Israel group says it has complained to Calgary police over Facebook comments made by a former university student group president who urged Palestinians to ‘‘spill blood.’’
“My body and soul are ready to fight and die,” wrote Ala’a Hamdan, former president of Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights, a University of Calgary student group. “This land will be proud that Palestinian babies are born men and women ready to spill their blood.”
In a battle hymn written to a son, Ms. Hamdan wrote: “I will soak a koffiah with your blood and save it to show to your siblings … I will be named the mother of the martyr.“
This isn’t exactly the sort of image that Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights likes to show up on its Apartheid Wall (up above) with its quotes from Martin Luther King.
But we’re also seeing a young Muslim woman in her early twenties who isn’t dreaming that her son will become a doctor or a leader, or even a successful murderer of Jews, but she is only dreaming of the moment when she can wear his blood.
This is a mother of a child yet to be born dreaming of his future death.
When people call Islamic terrorist culture a death cult, this is what they mean. There is no interest in peace, because these cult members have no interest in life. All of their energies are oriented only toward death; killing and dying.
That is their religion. That is where Islamic terrorism comes from.
The University of Calgary Students’ Union supports the Palestinian group, acknowledging it even won an award for best advocacy club last year.
“In the past, this has definitely come up. We’ve got over 300 clubs at the Student Union that stand on every side you can think of on every social issue,” said Ben Cannon, vice-president of student life at the school. “We believe in the right for a club to express their opinions and to keep the dialogue going on campus.”
What kind of dialogue can you have with people whose lust for death is so obsessive that don’t even want their own children to live?
Can you have a dialogue with Charles Manson or the Columbine killers? Any attempt at negotiating with Muslim terrorists is equally futile.
