Psychopaths or Legitimate Resistance?

with 2 comments

Most people concerned with the Middle East have a view about Hamas, are they political psychopaths? Or do they represent a positive and legitimate resistance?

You decide.

Channel 4 has just broadcast Inside Hamas, so you can make your own mind up about this gang of murderers and nihilists. I haven’t seen the Monday night programme yet but its repeated early Thursday morning according to the C4 page.

YouTube has copies of the programme.

And don’t forget to view the Hamas Charter, in particular this bit:

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem)”

Having watched the programme I can see why Hamas let Channel 4 make it. The first half is mildly critical, but towards the end there is a not so subtle justification for our Hamas’ violence by Sharif Nashashibi and various Hamas leaders, we are even told that there are some moderate Hamas leaders. Strange then how they didn’t inform the Hamas MP who ranted on about “liberating Jerusalem from the filthy Jews”, very moderate?

  1. I find that only the most ardent Islamist would really believe they represent a positive resistance. But when it comes to attacking Israel and the Jews, I guess folks will take any armed group that comes there way.
