No one but the terrorists is responsible for the consequences for Palestinian civilians of their senseless and provocative act. Israeli missiles knocked out 60 per cent of Gaza’s electricity – a fresh blow for a people already reeling under the move by Western nations to cut off funds to the Hamas administration. As they light candles and try to cook without power they will perhaps recall the votes they cast in the January election. @The Australian
Wow… what a change to read the above when the majority of the media is so left wing, it is comforting to know that there are some who are willing to call a spade a spade, or in this case a terrorist organisation a terrorist organisation. When Hamas was elected by the Palestinian people there was bound to be more trouble for Israel and the world will undoubtedly feel the rippling effect in due time. Hamas a terrorist organisation as an elected government is a real thorn in the side for any peace negotiations, especially considering their refusal to acknowledge any right for Israel to exist. Have a look at just some of the Articles in the Hamas Covenant, only then will you have a true understanding of the nature of this government:
“Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors.” This is the Charter of the Islamic Resistance (Hamas) which will reveal its face, unveil its identity, state its position, clarify its purpose, discuss its hopes, call for support to its cause and reinforcement, and for joining its ranks.
For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave, so much so that it will need all the loyal efforts we can wield, to be followed by further steps and reinforced by successive battalions from the multifarious Arab and Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory prevails.
Article Two The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a world organization, the largest Islamic Movement in the modern era. It is characterized by a profound understanding, by precise notions and by a complete comprehensiveness of all concepts of Islam in all domains of life: views and beliefs, politics and economics, education and society, jurisprudence and rule, indoctrination and teaching[…]
[…]Article Six The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinct Palestinian Movement which owes its loyalty to Allah, derives from Islam its way of life and strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine. Only under the shadow of Islam could the members of all regions coexist in safety and security for their lives, properties and rights[…]
[…]The Slogan of the Hamas Article Eight Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Quzan its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.
[…]Peaceful Solutions [Peace] Initiatives and International Conferences Article Thirteen [Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad: There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad.
Article twenty-eight The Arab states surrounding Israel are required to open their borders to the Jihad fighters, the sons of the Arab and Islamic peoples, to enable them to play their role and to join their efforts to those of their brothers among the Muslim Brothers in Palestine.
I actually found it hard not to just cut and paste the whole Covenant drawn up by the terrorist government Hamas. There is so much in there that is down right evil and it is little wonder that America wanted to withhold money from them considering the fact that Hamas has never changed its views on Israel or the West for that matter. If you want check it out for yourself, it is obtainable on the internet.
Indoctrination is a term used in the Hamas Covenant and if you are wondering what they mean by this well, just take a look at this seven minute video I found @Palestinian Media Watch – Ask for Death. A term called Shahada – shahada is being used to indoctrinate little Palestinian children to prepare them for death to fight the oppressors by blowing themselves up, it is nothing short of brain washing these innoccent children, I see it as the worst kind of child abuse ever yet the world says nothing!!! Another good site is Teach Kids Peace.
The Hamas Covenant suggest that only under Islamic rule (Sharia) can people from other religions co-exist within the Islamic religion. This is rubbish, by co-exist they mean Dhimmitude. If you are unsure of what that means, you really should do your homework and find out what dhimmitude really is for us the infidels. Here is a good place to start, it is brief but to the point and no punches pulled. @Answering Islam – Dhimmitude.
For more on where Islamic Dhimmitude is happening around the world see DhimmiWatch . A great site for up to date information.
Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, “protected people,” are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur’an’s command that they “feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, is part of the law that global jihadists are laboring to impose everywhere, ultimately on the entire human race.
The dhimmi attitude of chastened subservience has entered into Western academic study of Islam, and from there into journalism, textbooks, and the popular discourse. One must not point out the depredations of jihad and dhimmitude; to do so would offend the multiculturalist ethos that prevails everywhere today.
But in this era of global terrorism this silence and distortion has become deadly. Therefore Dhimmi Watch seeks to bring public attention to the plight of the dhimmis, and by doing so, to bring them justice. @Dhimmi Watch
It is very important to understand the terminology and what is really meant by certain words used by the Islamic Theocratic States, cultural context in this case is paramount. The word co-exist according to the Islamic mind that has been bombarded with lies against the West and against Jews means a totally different thing to what you and I would consider co-existence to be. Don’t fall for it.
According to the Hamas Covenant the borders should be opened to allow all Jihadist’s in to fight and win back the land of Palestine to Allah. Israel has just given Gaza over and is in the process of giving the West Bank over to Hamas. What kind of border control do you expect from the elected government who’s only agenda is to destroy Israel completely and bring all people into dhimmitude according to Islamic Law (sharia). I suggest none. It is a terrifying prospect isn’t it? The world is going to be seeing more terrorism not less, we are in for a rough ride!

Sheikh Muhammad Nassar on Child Martyrdom and Allah’s Punishment of Infidels Sheikh Muhammad Nassar (June 15): “Let’s listen to a very beautiful story to learn about the courage of a child, and how, when a child is brought up in a good home, and receives proper education in faith, he loves martyrdom, which becomes like an instinct for him. He can never give it up. “This story, my friends, is a beautiful story. Abu Qudama was the commander of the army of the Muslims, when they fought the Byzantines. The Byzantines had a very, very large army, whereas the Muslims did not have many fighters. So Abu Qudama walked down the alleys and streets, among the poor, calling: ‘Come join the jihad come join the jihad.’
