Hamas’ Genocidal Technocrats

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


Military Ceremony in GazaHillary Clinton said Monday that she was in favor of Barack Obama’s support for the new Palestinian Authority unity government, even though it included the jihad terror group Hamas, because “the makeup of this joint enterprise are largely technocrats. They’re academics and they’re business people. They don’t represent sort of, what you might call hard-core Hamas leadership.”

Would Hillary Clinton then have us believe that the Hamas officials who are part of the unity government do not represent Hamas leadership, or Hamas itself? That would be like saying that Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi don’t represent the leadership of the Democratic Party, or that Obama, Reid and Pelosi cannot be held responsible for the actions and positions of the Party.

This is plainly ridiculous – and in this case, even worse than ridiculous, because Hamas leaders have quite recently reaffirmed their commitment to the total destruction of Israel. Anyone who thinks that is not the position of the Hamas officials in the Palestinian Authority government is suffering from a case of willful blindness that is spectacularly severe even in this blinkered age.

At the time of the reconciliation between the two Palestinian groups, the Washington Post reported that Hamas would recognize Israel. Hamas spokesman Taher Nunu was livid: “What I was quoted as telling the American paper is wrong, and I unequivocally deny it. The issue of Hamas recognizing Israel is a complete nonstarter… aimed primarily at weakening the movement’s positions on Israel.” Nunu threatened legal action against the Post for its “false report.”

A week after reconciling with Fatah, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal stated: “Our path is resistance and the rifle and our choice is jihad. There is no past or future without jihad and resistance. Jihad is our path.”

What that meant was vividly illustrated in early May, when Palestinian Media Watch reported that “the terrorist who murdered 15 in the Sbarro pizza shop suicide bombing in 2001 was given a military funeral by the PA after his body was transferred to the PA last week. On Aug. 9, 2001 suicide bomber Izz Al-Din Al-Masri detonated himself in a Sbarro pizza shop in Jerusalem, killing 15, 7 of them children. 5 members of one family were killed in the attack.”

Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV News exulted: “Izz Al-Din Al-Masri ascended to Paradise in a Martyrdom-seeking operation (suicide terror attack) he carried out in the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, where he gave the Zionists a taste of humiliation after killing 19 Zionists and wounding dozens.” And at the funeral, a Palestinian Authority official declared: “The popular gathering around the blood of Izz Al-Din Al-Masri is an honest and true expression of our people’s yearning for national unity (between Fatah and Hamas) and unity of action.”

That same week, according to the Elder of Ziyon blog, Hamas’ Al Qassam Brigades “released a video for Israel’s Independence Day, called ‘The End of the Hope,’” in which “Jews are forced onto ships to Germany by masked Hamas terrorists. Worshippers are chased out of the Kotel plaza which is destroyed and replaced with the ‘Mughrabi Quarter.’ Armed masked terrorists are seen on the roof of the Dome of the Rock to ensure that Jews can never visit there as they sing that there is no Temple in Jerusalem.”

That same week, the weekly Hamas children’s show Tomorrow’s Pioneers featured a young girl saying, that she wanted to become a police officer when she grew up, “So that I can shoot Jews.” The show’s child host then asked: “All the Jews? All of them?” When the girl responded in the affirmative, the host said, “Good.”

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said last Saturday: “Hamas’s strategy has not changed and will not change.” The goal of that “strategy” was the total destruction of Israel: “Wherever [Hamas] presides, we will remain preachers and teachers and build the Palestinian nation to liberate all the land of Palestine. We emphasize now that we will not retreat from out plan to liberate our lands and ensure the right of return and the release of [terrorist] prisoners.”

But don’t worry: they’re technocrats!

    Unfortunately for Hamas, their avowed commitment to the genocidal slaughter of the Jews brings brings them within three halakhic (Law of Moses) rules concerning Amalek. These are among the 297 commandments which Jews must observe today.

    The commandments are: (1) to remember what Amalek did to them as they came out of Egypt; (2) to never forget; and (3) to blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven. Jesus never set these commandments aside.

    This gives rise to the obligation to wage a “war of commandment” (milkhemet mitzvah) against Hamas. The men and women of Hamas are under the curse of destruction and must be exterminated.

    • StanleyT

      There is no need to invoke biblical commandments. After all, that is exactly what Hamas is doing. Israel has the legal right to defend itself under modern international and customary law and that should be enough. Now if only Israel actually took advantage of that right …

      • mollysdad

        On the contrary, the Bible is the word of God and must be obeyed. You also have to understand that Israel and Hamas are adversaries in a holy war. What makes it holy is that Hamas, the enemies of the people of God, claim a divine mandate to kill the Jews. This identifies Hamas with Amalek and engages the law concerning milkhemet mitzvah, which is the only fight which Our Lord Jesus Christ ever has a dog in.

          Yep. Islamalek.

    Na zi technocrats planned and implemented the Final Solution according to historians.

    If Hamas are technocrats, does that make Huma a technician?

  • montlasky

    Hillary is a devout anti Semite and is an adept liar as was proven during the Benghazi hearings. If she comes to power as president of the US at the 2016 elections, America will be the laughing stock of the world. She will be even worse than Bollocks Obama, if that’s possible!
    Imagine what she feels about her daughter being married to a `jew? Now she intends getting her own back as a presidential candidate!

    • aspacia

      Her son-in-law is Orthodox Jew?

      • montlasky

        AJew he is. Orthodox? Who knows?

      • c0mm0ncenz

        no no no no no way. He’s a reform or secular Jew. plz no Orthodox would marry into such a treif family.

        • aspacia

          Okay, I goofed. He is a conservative Jew.

      And you seem dumb enough to believe her. Are you a Hilary voter?

    • Wolfthatknowsall

      Flagged. You will not last long, at this website. Go away …

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just as THE FIRST phone call made when Obama was inaugurated back in 2009 was to Abbas, the FIRST thing Empress Hillary will done after climbing onto her throne of skulls will be to invite Hamas to the White House in their official capacity as the rightful rulers of ‘palestine from the sea to the river’. This isn’t even a debatable point. If you thought Obama hates Jews, just wait till you see President Screeching Hag. It will look like the Nuremberg Race Laws.

    • lyndaaquarius

      there is, of course, a good possibility that the American voters will reject her as our Commander in Chief. Besides demonstrating that everything she touches turns to crap, she’s not an appealing candidate. Old,cold and Marxist.

      • liz

        Well. That’s not much different from the young, cold, and Marxist we’ve got now.

  • Donro

    Do not forget that Hillary Clinton is not very smart. She even failed her first bar exam when she was attempting to get her license to practice law! Then she showed no common sense nor morals by sticking with Slick Willy after it was clear he had actually raped several women after they were married. Astounding how ignorant is the American public that they fall for goofs like Hillary Clinton and B. Hussein Obama. Of course, Hillary’s number one assistant when she was Secretary of State was a Muslim whose relatives are members of the Muslim Brotherhood which is part of the Muslim terrorist network.

  • Gee

    Is there any real difference between the PLO and Hamas? I think not, both have charters that state that they goal is our genocide.
    Time to end the Oslo Farce and get rid of the Arab occupiers of our lands

    Albert Speer was an architect. He was the new breed of technocrats that Germany started filling up with, in the 1930s. And yet, he was responsible for … not only prolonging H!tler’s war … but enslaving millions of people, under horrendous circumstances, in the armaments factories.

    “Technocrat” doesn’t necessarily mean “nice guy in a suit”.

    • Drakken

      To be fair to Speer, he also saved a lot of Germany from destruction and fellow Germans from being put against a wall.

  • Habbgun

    Typical Hilary. She can tell you there is a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy but a terrorist group is just a bunch of office workers. She’s past lying. She simply confabulates.
