Oh, Fuck

Things aren’t going so smoothly as I thought in Palestine.

The Palestinians’ ruling Hamas group will not enter into a coalition government if recognizing Israel is a condition, a top Hamas political adviser said Friday, raising new doubts about President Mahmoud Abbas’ ability to bring a more moderate government to power.

At the United Nations on Thursday, Abbas indicated that the planned national unity government between Hamas and his Fatah Party would recognize the Jewish state.

But Haniyeh’s political adviser, Ahmed Yousef, told The Associated Press on Friday that “there won’t be a national unity government if Hamas is asked to recognize Israel.” Instead, he reiterated Hamas’ offer of a long-term truce.

The good news is that a long-term truce without recognition or diplomatic relations is better than outright war, and in addition “Yousef said renouncing violence was a clause of the agreement underlying the planned coalition government.” The bad news is that Hamas is still refusing to extend the truce into full diplomatic recognition even if the occupation ends.

I can understand not recognizing a government that’s illegally occupying your country, but not recognizing a government that’s doing of that sort is just needlessly belligerent.

    The following opinion piece is attached for the edification of those who still believe in “moderate Muslims”.

    The truth about Moslem moderates
    By Howard Galganov September 20, 2006

    President Bush spoke yesterday at the united Nations. And in his speech, he lauded Iran for its contributions to society.

    He also spoke of America’s fondness for the Iranian people, making certain to separate the people from the government.

    He said a lot of nice and conciliatory things about Iran, which I won’t bother writing, because they are essentially not true.

    Iran is a TERRORIST state which TERRORIZES its neighbors and the entire world.

    Iran is a total Theocracy which treats women with no more or less respect than we in the West treat our pets.

    Iran is a financier and supporter of international TERRORISM and a threat to global stability.

    And Iran is the 21st century Nazi-like State openly declaring itself in favor of wiping Israel (Jews) off the map.

    I am sick and tired of hearing about the silent majority of Moslems who have been high-jacked by extremists within their own religion. Including Persian Moslems in Iran.

    How does anyone, including George W Bush, know that the majority of Moslems are “moderates” and opposed to Islam expanding globally at any cost?

    The true answer is that they don’t know.

    The only thing we do know for certain is that Islam has declared war on Modernity and on the West. And from the so-called Moslem moderates there is nothing but calculated silence.

    We also know that the Koran teaches all Moslems that it is their absolute duty to convert the entire planet to believe in Islam.

    The Koran is not like the Torah or Bible which teaches the history of their respective religions and guides their followers in prayer and belief.

    The Koran is all things to Moslems including the rule of law.

    One of my clients, who was born outside of Canada, but is nonetheless a Canadian-educated Moslem, recently told me that Democracy is a failed concept.

    In his world, Islam has all the laws we need with which to govern all nations.

    Why pretend to know how to govern ourselves when, in his mind and those of other Moslems, all of the ways of government are mapped out for mankind in the Koran?

    If we live by Sharia, we will live better.

    So I have to wonder: if Sharia is the answer for him, where will he stand in a confrontation between Canadian Democracy and Islamic Theocracy?

    In his case, I don’t believe that he has the courage of his convictions to take a risky stand in either direction. But, that’s just him. What about all the others who are truer believers?

    Islam isn’t just another religious belief. To Moslems, it is the ONLY belief, which is alive and must be lived every day.

    And, unlike other religions, Islam has a pan-national status equal to and surpassing most governments.

    A Moslem’s loyalty is first to Islam. Second to the nation Islamists call home.

    I would have thought that if there was any single individual on this planet with the type of fortitude needed to stare down Islam, it would be the Pope.

    I could not have been more wrong.

    The Pope and the Vatican have been doing back-flips to appease Islam.


    The answer is simple. Islam, the “Religion of Peace”, has the entire planet scared shitless. Including the Pope.

    In this sick real-life drama, I’m watching the reenactment of September 1938, when Europe sold Czechoslovakia down the river to the Nazis in the hope of appeasing an ever-growing monster.

    And now we’re doing it again with the Moslems.

    Ariel Sharon was absolutely right when he told President George W. Bush that Israel is not Czechoslovakia, and that he would not allow the Jewish nation to be sold to appease the Arabs.

    At least one country (Israel) sees the world the way it is, and refuses to be blind to history and make-believe.

    Every time we in the West excuse Islamic bad behavior, or close our eyes to Islamic outrages, we further empower them and endanger ourselves.

    This includes the so-called Moslem moderates, whom I am certain will be a lot less moderate when push comes to shove and they have to take one side or the other.

    I could be wrong.

    But I doubt it.

    Attached opinion piece tells it all.

    The Arab-Israel conflict explained in twenty lines or less
    By Michael Green September 22, 2006

    On September 22, 2006, Hamas reiterated its credo, in what amounts to the following:

    “We’d rather die than make peace with Israel (under ANY borders)!”

    How come?

    According to Sharia law, waging a Holy War of Extermination (Jihad) against infidel nations is every devout Muslim’s command. This Jihad must continue until the Infidels choose one of three alternatives:

    (a) Become Muslim;

    (b) Accept Muslim rule as an oppressed and humiliated Dhimmi minority (the so-called “Binational State”);

    (c) Face death and destruction.

    There are only two ways to prevent this:

    (a) To decisively defeat and expel the Arab attackers beyond insurmountable geographical boundaries (happened in history only in the Iberian Peninsula, Sicily, Malta);

    (b) Sign a temporary truce (Hudna) which Arab attackers are allowed to sign for up to ten years until their strength reaches a point where they can renew their attacks and offer the infidels the above three choices again (back to square 1!).

    Hamas leaders would rather eat Pork than break the above Sharia commands.

    If they break it, their verdict would be certain Death (just like Sadat experienced, or Arafat expected were he to sign Camp David end-of-conflict proposals with Barak).

    There you have it:

    The whole foundation of the Arab-Israel conflict explained in less than 20 lines!

    Everything else is just empty talk.
