GAZA’S HAMAS: A bunch of failed deluded theatrical playground psychopaths.

Dr Martin Sherman is the founder and CEO of the Israel Institute for Strategic StudiesHe served for seven years in operational capacities in the Israeli intelligence community. From 1990-91 he held the post of ministerial advisor to the Israeli government and has testified as an expert before the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) of US Congress, in a hearing on economic and security trends in the Middle East. He writes a regular and widely read column “Into the Fray” in the Friday edition of the Jerusalem Post.

In an interview he gave on May 29, 2018, on Israel’s ILTV he was asked in reference to the current situation in Gaza, “What should Israel be doing?” He replied: “Every single one of those mortar shells that came into Israel today was basically an attempted murder to murder the residences around the Gaza Strip.”

He added:

“The only solution to Gaza is not reconstruction but deconstruction… Because of the nature of the society in Gaza, this will go on and on and in the end, to put it bluntly, there will either be a large Arab population in Gaza or Jews in the Negev. But, there won’t be both over time.”

The interviewer remarked that out of roughly two million Gazans who are living in the Strip, not all of them are in Hamas’ pockets, to which Sherman replied:

“We should stop considering Palestinians as prospective peace partners and relate them as they relate to themselves, as implacable enemies and treat them as such. In the Second World War, not all the Germans were bad people, but when you have a class of collectives you must decide which collective you want to win, yours or theirs. And if you’re willing to sacrifice your individual, your collective rights for their individual rights, you’re going to lose.”

For my part, in my article written earlier in May for jewishinfoNews and republished in The Times of Israel, I referred to Hamas as being “Repulsive to the core.” I said:

“Clamouring to celebrate the daily antisemitic claptrap and hate mongering diatribe against Israel, and piggybacking on their current sick mentality of propaganda, lies and self-denial, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Hamas continues to threaten Israel with an abhorrence selection of vile and psychotic disorders that must have dead Nazis applauding in their graves.”

A theatre of violence

For now, one might look at it in the same way as a long-lasting theatre of violence. Every full-house performance has a standing ovation, mostly from Western media.

The historian and cultural theorist Robert Young writing on violence said that violence “is a phenomenon that has a history. Violence is not so much a question of a single act that breaks a supposed continuum of nonviolence or peace. Rather, violence is best understood as a historical cycle of violence and counter-violence. In other words, violence is not one but two. It is a double act that traps human beings in a repetitive pattern from which it is very hard to escape.”

“This past weeks’ abhorrent theatre by Gazans with their list of mediocre actors performing on the world stage and screaming to get attention, smells worse than a dozen rotten eggs floating on a polluted lake.”

It is a repetitive theatre that deserves a repetitive quote from me:

“For Hamas’ egregious population, that day has surely arrived. Hamas and its population over the years have had every opportunity to join the civilized world. Unfortunately, led by a bunch of deluded playground psychopaths, they have utterly failed. It is they who have failed. We carry no guilt for their actions.  If they wish to be devoured, it is their choice and their choice alone!”

Martin Sherman is accurate. One should treat them as they relate to themselves, as ruthless enemies. Let it be so!

And so it is today.

On December 29, 2008, Michael Burleigh in an article published in Britain’s The Daily Mail wrote:  “Israel will need to balance a desire to disable Hamas with an awareness that an often hostile world media will be printing images of people killed in the attacks to use against it.

“It is an indication of the ruthlessness of Hamas that those who fire missiles at Israel deliberately operate from within dense civilian housing in the knowledge that any reprisals will cause civilian casualties which can be used in propaganda against Israel. Hamas’s response to the air strikes is already in motion. It quickly resumed the missile attacks, launching 110 which killed a single Israeli in Netivot. The group’s Damascus-based leader, Khaled Meshal, called for a third Palestinian uprising, similar to those in 1987 and 2000.”

Burleigh added in part:

… “the Hamas regime in Gaza is a vicious little tyranny which brutally suppresses journalists and anyone who protests against the politicisation of sermons in mosques. It cares so little for the residents of Gaza that it has continued to fire rockets at the price of an Israeli blockade on urgently-needed supplies, and now won’t even let the injured get medical treatment in Egypt.

“Since Hamas is pathologically antisemitic, rather than anti-Israel, and dedicated to creating an Islamist state in Gaza, there are no prospects of it entering into a lasting peace settlement with Israel.”

And so it is today.

Clamouring to celebrate the daily antisemitic claptrap and hate mongering diatribe against Israel, and piggybacking on their current sick mentality of propaganda, lies and self-denial, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Hamas continues to threaten Israel with an abhorrence selection of vile and psychotic disorders that must have dead Nazis applauding in their graves.

Hamas continually makes fools of the Western media. They had good teachers.

In 1944, in a propaganda film, the Nazis presented Theresienstadt to the International Red Cross as a model Jewish settlement where the Jews lived an idyllic life. It was, in fact, a ghetto established to gradually transfer the Jews from Theresienstadt to extermination camps. The Red Cross representatives were conducted on a tour and fell for it hook, line, and sinker. The representatives apparently did not attempt to divert from the tour route on which they were led by the Germans, who posed questions to the Jewish residents along the way. Hamas, over time, has learned well from the Nazis.

 “We aren’t leading our people today to destruction. We are leading them to death.” – Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesperson, July 13, 2014.

And so it is today.

Hamas has always depicted itself as a victim and continues to portray itself as the heroic killer of Israelis.

It was ten years ago that Fathi Hamad, a Hamas representative in the PA legislative council expressed pride in the fact that women and children are used as human shields in fighting Israel.

 “For the Palestinian people, death became an industry, at which women excel and so do all people on this land: the elderly excel, the Jihad fighters excel, and the children excel. Accordingly [Palestinians] created a human shield of women, children, the elderly and the Jihad fighters against the Zionist bombing machine, as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: We desire death as you desire life.”  – Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) Feb. 29, 2008.

“A good or bad future of a nation can be determined by its children, who will lead the nation in the future.” – Palestinian Sociologist Ghassan Zoqan

For considerable years the rulers of Gaza have abused their children through a systematic approach of instilling a hatred of Jews in the minds of their young children. Jews must be killed, the authorities tell their children. It is an abuse of gigantic proportions that continues today with western media in the forefront o taking little interest in the subject.

Take for instance this children’s programme emanating out of Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV on May 2, 2014. To date, in excess of 300,000 people have viewed this despicable video. The theme follows a long line of similar Al-Aqsa TV children’s videos dating back years.

The emotions of children make good press. Hamas knows it and so does the Western media.

And so it is today.

Western media has done little to explain the incongruities Hamas presents to the world, nor in many cases give a fair and balanced view of the sickness permeating throughout Gaza’s society.

On their children’s website, Hamas encourages children to die for Allah.

Hamas has a special website for children, al-fateh.net, “where violence is glorified and death for Allah is labelled a ‘victory.’ Al-Fateh means ‘The Conqueror.’ The Shahada deaths of terrorists during attacks against Israel are presented to children as a time of celebration. A mother is quoted on the website as saying that when she heard that her son had become a shahid (martyr); she bought dates, candies and coffee to give out. ”  PMW. March 7, 2006

Yet, as abhorrent as their children’s website is, for countless years Hamas’ literature has continually been thrust upon us.

The Hamas website of February 14, 2006, seen here on the right, presented the parting video messages of two Hamas suicide terrorists. One message was for Jews, whose blood Hamas promises to drink until Jews “leave the Muslim countries,” and the second to a mother, as she helps dress her son for battle prior to his suicide terror mission. Each terrorist had a separate message for Jews. The first said:

 “My message to the loathed Jews is that there is no god but Allah, we will chase you everywhere! We are a nation that drinks blood, and we know that there is no blood better than the blood of Jews. We will not leave you alone until we have quenched our thirst with your blood, and our children’s thirst with your blood. We will not leave until you leave the Muslim countries.”

And so it is today.

Albert Einstein once said: ” I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

For Hamas’ egregious population, that day has surely arrived. Hamas and its population over the years have had every opportunity to join the civilized world. Unfortunately, led by a bunch of deluded playground psychopaths, they have utterly failed. It is they who have failed. We carry no guilt for their actions.  If they wish to be devoured, it is their choice and their choice alone! They require no help from the Western media.

The Guardian. “Britain’s viciously and notoriously anti-Israel newspaper.”

Stoking the fire of antisemitism and anti-Israel hate

   by Alan Simons

Many years ago in London, England, I worked for The Guardian. I have to admit I didn’t actually work in the editorial department, but I had day-to-day contact with many of the paper’s columnists and journalists. I even had to pay for the occasional round of drinks at the ‘local,’ around the corner from the office.

Unlike now, many of the editorial staff were media icons in their own right. Mark Arnold-Forster, Clare Hollingworth, Victor Zorza, John Cole, Mary Stott, Norman Shrapnel and of course Alistair Cooke in the USA, to name a few.

Editors of the past such as Alistair Hetherington, who continues to be regarded as one of the leading editors of the second half of the twentieth century, and Peter Preston both strove to present a balanced view. Since then the paper has strengthened its biased anti-Israel position.  A former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews once stated, the paper is “viciously and notoriously anti-Israel.”

 It wasn’t always this way. C. P. Scott, one of the most famous editors of The Guardian had a strong friendship with Chaim Weizmann. It is believed their friendship played a role in the Balfour Declaration of 1917.

In 1948 The Guardian was a supporter of the new State of Israel. With Alistair Hetherington at the helm, The Guardian‘s favourable view of Israel continued, as illustrated in their Leader of Monday, June 12, 1967:

“Future security is [Israel’s] first concern. They will not give up the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank of the Jordan, or the heights overlooking the upper Jordan valley until they know what the Arabs will accept. If there is no peace settlement, will they ever give them up?

“Israel wishes to live in peace. She does not want hostile neighbours on her borders, whoever they are, for another hundred or two hundred years. She wants normal trading relations with her neighbours. The offer of generous terms is therefore still worth trying – especially if, through the United Nations and all the Great Powers, Israel’s future frontiers are effectively guaranteed.”

In 2002 the paper ran a Leader which, in part said, “the Jewish community is right to fear that the repulsive antisemitism… in many Arab countries… can find an alarming echo within some British Muslim communities.” The Leader of 16 years ago could easily have been written yesterday. Mind you, I doubt if it would have been published in The Guardian!

“One of the main purveyors of anti-Israel bias in the UK and abroad.”

But, that was The Guardian of another period.  For today in 2018, The Guardian continually breaks all the barriers in stoking the fire of antisemitism and anti-Israel hate that in 2002 it found quite alarming.

UK Media Watch is “dedicated to combating antisemitism and promoting accurate reporting about Israel in the UK media.”  They believe “The Guardian has long been identified as one of the main purveyors of anti-Israel bias in the UK and abroad…”

Earlier this week, Adam Levick, Managing Editor of UK Media Watch, wrote a scathing article titled, “The Guardian View’ on the Gaza protests: one of their worst editorials on Israel ever.”  His article concludes, “The Guardian once again has demonised Israel, smearing the state as one defined primarily by racism and violence – an ugly caricature which has little resemblance to reality.  Moreover, the notion that Jerusalem should take security advice from the Corbyn-sympathising London intelligentsia is as risible as their suggestion that its citizens should take seriously the moralizing tales of Israeli darkness by the Hollywood left.” 

I urge you to read Levick’s article in full to appreciate the depth and viciousness of this once respected British newspaper.

Which brings me to Seumas Milne. Milne, The Guardian’s former far-left of centre associate editor and columnist has for many years had his fingers in the pie denouncing Israel at every possible occasion. 

Here is a 2014 video link to a speech given by Milne. Prior to working for The Guardian, Milne was the “business manager of Straight Left, a monthly publication of…  the Communist Party of Great Britain.” I suppose it’s a no-brainer to figure out where he’s coming from. Milne, “in front of thousands of anti-Israel protesters at Hyde Park in London, explicitly justified Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis (a refrain from his Guardian column in mid-July), and accused ‘terrorist’ Israel of ‘industrial scale’ killing in Gaza.” (As reported by UK Media Watch formerly CiF Watch). All this while being employed by The Guardian.

“Two Peas in a Pod!”

Milne is no longer The Guardian’s associate editor. In January 2017 he was appointed the British Labour Party‘s Executive Director of Strategy and Communications under Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is also well-known for his anti-Israel stance and as someone who has not publicly denounced antisemitism.

It’s been said that the ethical challenges faced by journalists-turned-political advisers can be a challenging experience for the individual. But not for Milne. He must relish it! In Milne’s case,  it would seem the utter contempt he has for Israel continues to remain an indelible mark of approval at The Guardian, as seen by the paper’s incessant thirst to publish anti-Israel content.

And now, Milne’s opinion of Israel has been opportunistically transferred to his latest employer Jeremy Corbyn, as well as to many of Corbyn’s followers, both from within the British Labour Party and from the Party’s far-left anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and antisemitic followers.

According to Peter Wilby, writing in the New Statesman in March 2018, Milne as Corbyn’s spin doctor “has proved rather good at it… Wilby writes Milne is the closest of the leader’s team to Corbyn, after John McDonnell, the UK shadow chancellor and confidant of Jeremy Corbyn.”

G. M. Trevelyan, the British historian and academic, once said, “A little man often casts a long shadow.” Could it be Wilby has it wrong? With shadowy motives and murky desires could it be that Milne is actually now the closest confidant to Corbyn? Heaven help British Jewry!
