The Jewish State's strongest ally joins forces with one of its most vicious enemies.
The Obama Administration stands with Hamas – an organization which is a designated foreign terrorist organization in America, Canada, the UK and most other civilized countries. Despicable and simply amazing that America is standing with an organization whose leadership and people is anti-American. Shameful, horrible, awful conduct. Clearly, the alliances in the Middle East have changed – Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel stand against Muslim extremist fundamentalists – and lining up on the other side is Qatar, Turkey and President Obama’s United States of America. Yes, you read that correctly.
Standing against Israel – the most consistent American ally in the region – is despicable.
This administration -- which has been awful to Israel -- saw Secretary of State John Kerry present the Israeli cabinet with a draft of a ceasefire agreement that recognized Hamas’s position in the Gaza Strip, promised the organization billions in donation funds and demanded no dismantling of rockets, tunnels or other heavy weaponry at Hamas’s disposal. Rather than standing against radical Islamists who endanger the entire Western world, America stands with terror.
Yet, the people of Israel will not accept these perpetual attacks upon her people. Israel will not – and must not – stop until tunnels are destroyed, and terror ceases. Israel’s TV Station Channel 10 had a poll which revealed that 87 percent of Israelis were in favor continuing the operation in Gaza, with another 69 percent in favor of toppling Hamas. Another poll showed that 86.5 percent are against a ceasefire right now because “Hamas continues firing missiles on Israel, not all the tunnels have been found, and Hamas has not surrendered.” And as America must continue fighting Al-Qaeda for world peace, so too must Israel keep fighting Hamas.
Hamas receives funding from Iran, and consistently stands against America. As Steven Emerson has documented, Hamas has "an extensive infrastructure in the U.S. mostly revolving around the activities of fundraising, recruiting and training members, directing operations against Israel, organizing political support and operating through human-rights front groups.”
Who is it that America under Obama and Kerry is protecting? A government Prime Minister, Ismail Haniya, the leader of Hamas who condemned the killing of Osama Bin Laden, describing the act as a “continuation of the United States policy of destruction.” Haniyeh praised Bin Laden as a "martyr" and an "Arab holy warrior.” This is the government which must be protected? A government which endangers its own people – and vows to destroy the State of Israel?
And the people of Hamas too stand against America. Ismail al-Ashqar, a Hamas lawmaker, described it as “state terrorism that America carries out against Muslims.” Yehia Moussa, another Hamas leader, noted that Hamas considers anybody killed while fighting “the American occupation and the Israeli occupation as a martyr, regardless of who he was.”
Hamas was democratically elected with 80% of the vote of the Palestinian people – and this is who today’s American leaders stand with. Let’s review the actions of whom Obama and Kerry are standing with when it comes to the 9/11 attacks: "Allah has answered our prayers," Dr. Atallah Abu Al-Subh wrote in an open letter titled "To America," which appeared September 13, 2001, in the Hamas newspaper Al-Risala.
"How much hatred has [America] stockpiled. ... Were the eradication of its Marines in Lebanon, the destruction of its military headquarters at Khobar in Saudi Arabia, the destruction of the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of its embassies in Zambia [sic] and in Kenya, and the attacks on its soldiers in the Gulf ... not sufficient? The U.S. should have learned the lessons of history ... Today, the U.S. has treated the bitter harvest it sowed in the hearts of millions. Today, we ask: After this, will the U.S. [continue to] think that it is above the law?" the editor of Al-Risala, Dr. Ghazi Hamad, said in justification of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.
For the sake of peace, Israel must destroy Hamas.
