Narrator: “Gaza was an innocent child, beautiful and bold.

“She flies with both her wings, races the birds, soars over the clouds, sleeps between the flowers and herbs.

“Soars over the clouds, sleeps between the flowers and herbs.

“Suddenly, the day turns into a fearful night and the sky was shrouded with black smoke. The birds called her: ‘Gaza, run away as fast as you can. The enemy destroyed your home and killed your parents.’

“Gaza rose up with all its might, rejecting running away or defeat. Gaza rose up with all its might, rejecting running away or defeat.

“Carrying the scattered stones of her demolished home, she ran quickly after the murderer to throw stones with her tender hands on the vicious faces of the enemy.

“To throw stones with her tender hands on the vicious faces of the enemy. The enemy saw her.

“He hated her childhood. He hated her heroism. He aimed the gun, he shot.

“The bullet rested, the bullet rested on the chest of Gaza, penerting [sic] her.

“To the bosom of a small girl returned it to the eye of that ugly soldier and rooted it out. He retreated shouting. Gaza smiled, giving bye to life with dignity.

“Many and many children will follow her example, and every day Gaza will be born anew.”

 

Israel Says Carter Effort At Cease-fire With Hamas FAILED!

Iran Urges Hamas To Fight On

Iran Urges Hamas To Fight On

Hamas has been given its marching orders from its spiritual and financial guiding light. Iran is the master; Hamas is their proxy. When Iran says “fight,” Hamas fights. When Iran says “take a break,” Hamas gathers itself for the next battle.

Don’t believe any of the ceasefire talk you might hear coming from Hamas “politicians”; Iran has given the command: fight on. This from “Countdown to Israel’s destruction has begun, says Ahmadinejad,” by Dudi Cohen (with aid from Roee Nahmias) for Ynet:

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki urged Hamas and the Islamic Jihad to carry on with their armed struggle against Israel during meetings with leaders of the Palestinian groups in Damascus Saturday.According to the London-based al-Hayat daily, Mottaki met with Hamas’ politburo head Khaled Mashaal and a delegation of Islamic Jihad leaders in the framework an official visit to Syria.

“The Palestinian people are a mighty people and there is a need to continue with the resistance,” al-Hayat quoted Mottaki as saying.

Al-Hayat also reported that Mottaki met with a top political advisor to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah as well as a delegation of the pro-Syrian Lebanese Amal faction.

If this was Iran’s message to Hamas, I wonder what Mottaki said to Hizballah?

Hamas promotes Islamic supremacy over the world, destruction of Israel and Jews

Hamas promotes Islamic supremacy over the world, destruction of Israel and Jews

Often broadcast on official PA television. “The Hamas Ideology of Hatred and Genocide: Islamic supremacy over the world, destroying Israel and Jews, promoting terror and violence,” by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for PMW, with thanks to all who sent this in:

Part 1: Islamic supremacy over the worldFormer Foreign Minister and Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar:
“The prophetic foundation is the message of the prophet Muhammad, that Islam will enter every house and will spread over the entire world.”
[Al-Ayyam, March 25, 2007]

Dr. Ahmad Bahar, Hamas (acting Speaker, Palestinian Legislative Council):
“This is Islam, that was ahead of its time with regards to human rights in the treatment of prisoners, but our people was afflicted by the cancerous lump, that is the Jews, in the heart of the Arab nation. Make us victorious over the infidels. Allah, take hold of the Jews and their allies, Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one.” [PA TV, April 20, 2007]

Deputy Director of Al-Aqsa [Hamas] TV, Hazem Al-Sha’arawi, discussing the children’s program Tomorrow Pioneers:
“Let’s ask history: …which time period was good to all communities? The Jews lived in the time of Islam [under Islamic rule] and were happy. The Christians lived in the time of Islam [under Islamic rule] and were happy. Look at the history, the prophet [Muhammad]… ordered the army: ‘Do not kill a monk in his prayer room.’ Even the Caliph Umar Bin Al-Khattab, [Islamic conqueror of Jerusalem in 638] when he came into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he secured the churches and the prayer rooms. Therefore, when we talk about the mission of the restoration of Islam to its natural place [of world rule], we [are] calling for justice, and for goodness, and for world love… so that the Christians will live in peace, and that even the Jews will live in peace and security.”
[Al-Aqsa TV, May 13, 2007]

Text from children’s program on Hamas TV, Tomorrow Pioneers:
Hazim (Adult): “Islam will spread to all parts of the earth from one end to the other and justice and good and kindness will spread. Did history witness a time period better than that when Islam ruled?… Every day do you remember Andalus (Spain)? This dear Andalus will return [to Islam] one day.” [Al-Aqsa TV, May 11, 2007]

Part 2: Destruction of Israel

Dr. Khalil Al-Hayyah, member of the Hamas political leadership and the Palestinian Legislative Council:
“The Hamas movement bases its strategy and its policy on that the option of resistance is the only option that can liberate Palestine from its [Mediterranean] sea to its [Jordan] river [ie destroy Israel].”
[Al-Risalah, Hamas newspaper, April 19, 2007]

Hamas spokesman, Dr. Ismail Radwan, confirmed …that his movement will not recognize any existence of the Israeli enemy on an inch of Palestinian land and said, “We will liberate Palestine, all of Palestine…Palestine will not be liberated by negotiations, committees and decisions, it will only be liberated by the rifle and the “Al-Qassam” [rocket]. Therefore, prepare yourselves.”
[Al-Risalah, Hamas newspaper, April 9, 2007]

Video of Ahmad Yassin, founder and former head of Hamas, about future destruction of Israel, broadcast regularly March – May 2007:
“Tel Aviv is gone. They are defeated, they have no words left. … When this process will end, they will become a state with no ability, helpless. They established a state to protect the Jews from death and murder. If death and murder chase them in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya and everywhere among them, then they will say: ‘What am I doing here? I founded a state to protect me from death, and if death chases me, I want to flee and go back to Europe and America.’” [Al Aqsa TV, regularly, March – May 2007]

Former Foreign Minister and Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar:
“Our position is the liberation of Palestine, all of Palestine. This is the final and strategic solution for us. There is a Quranic message for us, that we will enter the Al-Aqsa mosque, and the entrance to the mosque means the entrance into all of Palestine. This is the message, no one can deny it. Anyone who denies it must check his faith and his Islam.”
[Al-Ayyam, March 25, 2007]

“The representative of the Legislative Council, Dr. Yussuf Al-Sharafi, of the ‘Change and Reform’ faction [Hamas], emphasized the option of Jihad and resistance to banish the thieves of the occupation, who longed to drink the blood of our massacred people… because the Jewish faith does not wish for peace nor stability, since it is a faith that is based on murder: ‘I kill, therefore I am’ … Israel is based only on blood and murder in order to exist, and it will disappear, with Allah’s will, through blood and Shahids [martyrs].”
[Al-Risalah, Hamas newspaper, April 12, 2007]

Part 3: Demonization and extermination of Jews

The Hamas spokesman, Dr. Ismail Radwan:
“The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: ‘Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!’… We must remind our Arab and Muslim nation, its leaders and people, its scholars and students, remind them that Palestine and the Al-Aqsa mosque will not be liberated through summits nor by international resolutions, but it will be liberated through the rifle. It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since this occupation knows no language but the language of force… O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere… Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!” [PA TV, March 30, 2007]

Hamas Transcends Old PLO Position

Hamas Transcends Old PLO Position

Overlooked by mainstream media: Islamist Hamas has transcended the old PLO in its opposition to Israel.

Whereas the secular, nationalist PLO was officially committed to Israel’s destruction and replacement of the Jewish state in Palestine with a state that would allow individual Jews–on paper, at least–to reside as citizens within its borders, Hamas defiantly declares that it will not rest until “the last Jew is expelled from Palestine.” Hamas is fighting a religious war.

The group’s rhetoric is significant, though the media will not address the matter. Meanwhile, the pro-Islamist Chamberlains and Quislings crusading for Western appeasement and capitulation will do their best to distort and disinform in order to help Hamas achieve its awful aims.

So it goes.

The Mickey Martyr Club

The Mickey Martyr Club

By James Lewis

Hamas, the Islamofascist party that now controls half the Palestinian population, is giving the world an important object lesson on civilization; or rather, on the crucial difference between civilization and barbarism. In a West that has dulled the edge of its moral sense after years of “all cultures are equal” propaganda, it is high time for us to learn again what seemed so simple and obvious to previous generations: That civilization is better than bloody, vengeful barbarism, both in war and peace.
If we fail to understand the morality of our cause with the greatest intellectual clarity, we will not have the psychic strength to win this struggle. The moral lessons of what we see  in the news every day must be pointed out, over and over again. In a previous age, the mainstream media did that job.  Today, only the new media are willing to do it.
Annette Funicello wouldn’t approve, and neither would Walt Disney, but nonetheless the world has been introduced to the Mickey Martyr Club (Music please, Maestro!). Here come the kids marching in. Palestinian toddlers are being taught the glories of suicide-killing the Jews of Israel, using a Mickey Mouse rip-off on Hamas TV. Walt Disney’s cartoon mouse is now Mickey Martyr, on his way to paradise-after-death in a thousand bloody shreds. This is not the wholesome land of Disney.
So far, the Disney Company isn’t suing to protect its copyright, simply just hoping that this insanity will go away.
Now in a sane and decent country this sort of brainwashing of innocents would be called child abuse. If American liberals knew about little kids being told to commit suicide-murder anywhere in the United States, wouldn’t they explode with righteous rage? So … where is their moral outrage?
In fact, where is the whole Left on the Islamofascist abuse of kids, women, and innocent civilians? Why do liberals mostly ignore mass-casualty Al Qaeda car bombs exploded in the outdoor markets in Baghdad to kill and maim as many civilians as possible? Because that, of course, is the crux of terrorism: It fails any civilized moral test because it aims to kill innocents as a desired goal of war. Emotionally, it is sadistic vengeance as a tactic of war. Once you decide that is justified, what isn’t?
Western conduct in war has long been governed by Just War doctrine, worked out in great detail by first-rate thinkers, from the Roman philosopher Cicero to Christian theologians like Augustine and Aquinas, and the Dutch legal scholar De Grotius.
Today our moral and legal understanding of war has been kidnapped by the peacenik Left, which don’t know nuthin’ about history, geography, or the realities of conflict over the ages. Just War doctrine is based on the elementary difference between an accident and murder most foul, planned and executed with malice aforethought. It is the clear morality of human beings in extremis, confronted with choices most of us would rather avoid. 
In Western moral and legal thought, murder is sharply differentiated from unavoidable casualties. Just War codes of conduct arose at a time when soldiers wore gaudy red and blue uniforms with shiny brass helmets, precisely to differentiate themselves from innocent bystanders. To them it was honorable to stand up to deadly enemy fire in the most visible way: The British Redcoats, the Scots with their kilts and pipes, Napoleon’s Hussars, the gaudy Royal Household Cavalry. Those soldiers despised irregulars, like the Cossacks, who avoided equal battle and sought out the most helpless victims to kill, rob and rape. 

Today, the media, the UN, the Left, and Islamic fascists have all regressed to a more primitive standard of conduct, an uncivilized morality, doing their damndest to skate over the fundamental distinction between murder and accidental death. “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter,” they say. Yes: but only if your freedom fighter is a murderer in the first degree. That is not our concept of a freedom fighter in the West.
If you can’t tell the difference between the two, you probably don’t care whether you deliberately try to kill a pedestrian on a crosswalk, or whether you accidentally happen to harm someone, in the most agonized and guilt-stricken way. Now imagine actually trying to teach young children to go out and kill themselves and others. In Western thought that is tantamount to murder. It is morally and psychologically regressive. The fat and self-indulgent West is risking its own demise if it allows war as vendetta to become acceptable. But that is precisely what’s happening today among all the high-minded moral preeners of the Left.
People die in war. It’s horrible. But war in defense of decency is sometimes unavoidable. Lincoln freed the slaves after our worst war; it could not have happened peacefully. Peaceful solutions were tried for more than half a century before the War Between the States forced the issue. FDR and Churchill went to war to liberate much of Europe and Asia, because they realized that no one would ever be safe with a victorious Hitler, Tojo and Mussolini rampant over the world.
The evidence for that proposition was plain for all to see, though even then the likes of Joseph Kennedy and Charles Lindbergh urged peace. At least until war broke out, when they dutifully supported the war effort, to their credit.
The Cold War was again waged to defeat the likes of Stalin, Mao Zedong and Pol Pot. Those necessary wars were understood by most to be acts of profound morality and self-sacrifice, because the alternative would doom civilization. Under those circumstances, loud-mouthed pacifists were recognized to be moral cowards, with certain rare, honorable exceptions. Some pacifists volunteered to be battlefield medics. In contrast, today, morally lazy pacifism is the last resort of a scoundrel. We have an entire political party dedicated to a coward’s morality.
It all comes down to basic decency. A young (and foolish) woman I know said last week that there is no such thing as a moral war. On the contrary, war raises the most agonizing moral questions, starting with the decision to kill, because other options have simply run out. Clear thinking about morality is the essence of civilized warfare, and civilized warfare is the only justifiable kind.
Given these considerations, what are we to make of the Mickey Martyr Club on Hamas TV? Has any cause ever discredited itself so completely?
What makes Hamas TV indoctrination of the very young even worse is that Hamas could have a peace agreement with Israel tomorrow. Don’t believe that Hamas doesn’t know that. They know perfectly well that the great majority of Israelis aspire to peace, and they despise them for it. Hamas represents a profoundly reactionary, fanatical, religious martyrdom creed, straight from the clan vendettas of the desert, twelve centuries ago. 
Those tiny kids on Hamas TV could have a good life. They could grow and thrive, if only they were taught to accept their neighbors. All it takes is a decision by the adults, their mothers and fathers.
For Westerners who fastidiously turn their eyes away from Islamic primitivism, the time to take a stand is coming. Soon, no one will have the luxury of sitting this one out, and acting snooty to boot. Even Europe is beginning to stir – witness the election of Sarkozy in France and Merkel in Germany, the gutsy Aussies, the admirable Danish stand on the “cartoon jihad,” the Dutch reaction to the murder of Van Gogh, and the political clarity of the Poles, Czechs and Bulgarians.  All in defiance of the old media monopoly of the peacenik Left.
These nations have not forgotten the past. Make no mistake — they all hope that this will pass them by, or that Uncle Sam will take care of it. But ordinary people in those countries are increasingly seeing moral torpor as a dead end.
It’s about time.

Conventional warfare will no longer serve to defeat Hamas

Conventional warfare will no longer serve to defeat Hamas

DEBKAfile’s military experts: Unorthodox tactics needed to rout Gaza-based Palestinian terror and halt Qassam offensive against Israel. Conventional warfare will no longer serve

May 20, 2007, 2:34 PM (GMT+02:00)

As the Palestinian missile offensive enters its second week, military experts recommend dosing Hamas and its allies with their own medicine: harassment behind the lines by small undercover Israeli units on hit-and-run missions to blow up Palestinian infrastructure, weapons workshops and commands centers and around-the clock ambushes of their fighters and chiefs. Palestinian operatives must be kept on the run in fear of their lives.

They say the moment has passed for a conventional invasion, such as the 2002 Defense Wall operation that cleansed the West Bank of its effective suicide cell structures, such as some opposition leaders and ministers propose. It would have been logical after Israel’s 2005 evacuation of the Gaza Strip. But today, Gaza is swarming with a hodgepodge of Hamas, Jihad Islami, Fatah-al Aqsa Brigades, Popular Resistance Committees and al Qaeda terrorists and militias.

According to DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources, Iranian and Hizballah advisers are telling them how to combat a substantial Israeli ground–tank incursion. They must go underground and wage a guerrilla-terrorist war equivalent to the Iraqi insurgent campaign against US troops.

Israel is strongly advised to avoid that trap.

Unorthodox strategic and tactical thinking is needed, say the experts, not an effort to fight the Lebanon War anew in Gaza. The clock cannot be turned back to the days before 2005, when former PM Ariel Sharon supported by Olmert pulled Israel out of the Gaza Strip and the strategic Philadelphi border route – or when Olmert after becoming prime minister let Hamas win the Palestinian general election in 2006 with FM Tzipi Livni’s support.

Israelis have defeated Arab terror before. In the 1930s, The English military genius Orde Wingate taught Jewish paramilitary defenders his Special Night Squads tactics for turning Arab guerrilla methods against them. Nothing much has changed in 71 years, except for the fact that today, Israel has a strong army of its own, and does not need British or other international force to defend its sovereign territory. All that is needed is a government with resolve that lets the military do its job.

New Horror Footage: From Mickey Mouse to Mother’s Suicide Mission

New Horror Footage: From Mickey Mouse to Mother’s Suicide Mission

Following the Hamas Mickey Mouse, why has the media ignored an equally abhorrent Palestinian broadcast?

Incitement within the Palestinian media and education system is certainly not a new phenomenon. Promoting hatred and brainwashing children into a cult of death worship, this shocking form of child abuse poisons young minds and destroys any prospects for peace in the future. The international media recently took up this challenge, highlighting the appalling Mickey Mouse lookalike who incites children and promotes Islamic domination on a Hamas-run TV station.

Why does the media ignore another equally abhorrent video, which is still running on Hamas TV? Why has it turned a blind eye to this latest appalling example of Hamas’s incitement of children into becoming terrorists and suicide bombers?

 As documented by PMW, the four-year-old daughter of female suicide bomber Reem Riyashi sings to her dead mother and vows to follow in her footsteps. The video clip ends as the little girl picks up sticks of explosives from her mother’s drawer.

The Al Aqsa TV children’s program shows a child actress playing the daughter, watching Riyashi preparing the bomb and asking her mother, “Mommy, what are you carrying in your arms instead of me? A toy or a present for me?” She later sees a TV news story about her mother’s suicide mission and death, and realizes her mother had been carrying a bomb.

“Only now, I know what was more precious than us . . . ” she sings of the bomb.

Although she misses her mother, she vows to follow in her footsteps. The video ends as she opens her mother’s drawer and picks up the sticks of explosives her mother had left there.

Background:
Reem Riyashi killed four Israelis and wounded seven at the Erez crossing between Gaza and Israel in 2004. She gained the sympathy of the Israeli soldiers at the checkpoint by telling them that she had a metal plate in her leg that would trigger the metal detector. After she was taken to a room to be searched privately, she detonated the bomb hidden under her clothes.

It is absolutely unacceptable that the Hamas-led Palestinian government justifies such incitement and child abuse while demanding that the international community fund it with the money necessary for continuing such vile activities. It is imperative that this issue gains the coverage that it deserves.

Take action now – if you care about the welfare of children and their right to a fair and proper education, view the video, forward it to your contacts and demand that UNICEF’s office for the Palestinian Territories – jerusalem@unicef.org – acknowledge that this international body should be spending more of its time and money focusing on where the real abuse of Palestinian children is taking place.

RECOMMENDED READING

The above is an example of how the media is guilty of highlighting individual and sensationalist stories, such as the Hamas Mickey Mouse, while neglecting the bigger picture that has been part of the story for far longer. Calev Ben-David addresses this issue in the Jerusalem Post:

And that’s not just because it’s easier for journalists to report from Jerusalem than from Damascus; it’s also because the international media has developed a mind-set that stories about Syria only count for much if somehow they’re directly connected to stories about Israel.

That’s a major misconception, one the international press should have learned to discard following the 9/11 attacks. Prior to that, the rise of al-Qaida didn’t get nearly the media attention it should have, barely a fraction of what was devoted to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It’s the same with most internal Arab-Islamic issues until they finally impact directly in some way on Israel or the West; indeed, how much serious reportage of Sunni-Shi’ite divisions was there prior to 9/11 and the subsequent American occupation of Iraq? Journalists often realize the importance of these stories and play catch-up on them only after it’s too late – sometimes even for themselves.
