Stunning Hamas official's admission: Gaza in Chaos, Stop Blaming Israelis for our faults

Whine, snivel, always blaming the jews is getting stupid even to the stupid.

Stunning Hamas official's admission: Gaza in Chaos, Stop Blaming Israelis for our faults
Jerusalem Post ^ | August 28, 2006


"When you walk in the streets of Gaza City, you cannot but close your eyes because of what you see there: unimaginable chaos, careless policemen, young men carrying guns and strutting with pride and families receiving condolences for their dead in the middle of the street."

This is how Ghazi Hamad, spokesman for the Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority government and a former newspaper editor, described the situation in the Gaza Strip in an article he published on Sunday on some Palestinian news Web sites.

The article, the first of its kind by a senior Hamas official, also questioned the effectiveness of the Kassam rocket attacks and noted that since Israel evacuated the Gaza Strip, the situation there has deteriorated on all levels. It holds the armed groups responsible for the crisis and calls on them to reconsider their tactics and to stop blaming Israel for their mistakes.

"Gaza is suffering under the yoke of anarchy and the swords of thugs," Hamad wrote. "I remember the day when Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip and closed the gates behind. Then, Palestinians across the political spectrum took to the streets to celebrate what many of us regarded as the Israeli defeat or retreat. We heard a lot about a promising future in the Gaza Strip and about turning the area into a trade and industrial zone."

Hamad said the "culture of life" that prevailed in the Strip has since been replaced with a nightmare. "Life became a nightmare and an intolerable burden," he said. "Today I ask myself a daring and frightening question: 'Why did the occupation return to Gaza?' The normal reply: 'The occupation is the reason.'"

Dismissing Israel's responsibility for the growing state of anarchy and lawlessness in the Gaza Strip, Hamad said it was time for the Palestinians to embark on a soul-searching process to see where they erred.

"We're always afraid to talk about our mistakes," he added. "We're used to blaming our mistakes on others. What is the relationship between the chaos, anarchy, lawlessness, indiscriminate murders, theft of land, family rivalries, transgression on public lands and unorganized traffic and the occupation? We are still trapped by the mentality of conspiracy theories - one that has limited our capability to think."

Hamad admitted that the Palestinians have failed in developing the Gaza Strip following the Israeli withdrawal and in imposing law and order. He said about 500 Palestinians have been killed and 3,000 wounded since the Israeli pullout, in addition to the destruction of much of the infrastructure in the area.

By comparison, he said, only three or four Israelis have been killed by the rockets fired from the Gaza Strip over the same period.

"Some will argue that it's not a matter of profit or loss, but that this has an accumulating effect" he said. "This may be true. But isn't there a possibility of decreasing the number of casualties and increasing our gains by using our brains and making the proper calculations away from demagogic statements?"

The Hamas official said that while his government was unable to change the situation, the opposition was sitting on the side and watching and PA President Mahmoud Abbas was as weak as ever.

"We have all been attacked by the bacteria of stupidity," he remarked. "We have lost our sense of direction and we don't know where we're headed."

Addressing the various armed groups in the Gaza Strip, Hamad concluded: "Please have mercy on Gaza. Have mercy on us from your demagogy, chaos, guns, thugs, infighting. Let Gaza breathe a bit. Let it live."

islam is history

Islam is history: Taslima


Thiruvananthapuram - Islam is history because we live in the 21st century now, opined controversial exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen here Tuesday.

‘The Islam religion and their scriptures are out of place and out of time. It still follows the 7th century laws and is hopeless. The need of the hour is not reformation but revolution,’ said Nasreen interacting with reporters here.

The feminist author of Bengali book ‘Lajja’ is in Kerala in connection with the release of the Malayalam translation of four of her books, which would be released at Thrissur on Aug 24.

Nasreen said a secular state should have a uniform civil code and should be based on equality, existence and not on religion.

‘The state can do a lot of things, and both the state and religion should be separate. The state should not encourage religion. Today religious education and madrassas (religious seminaries) are going up. Jehad is stupidity,’ said the writer.

She said she had been fighting religious fundamentalism for long.

‘I don’t go to the streets, instead I write and that is my way of protest. I was born in a Muslim family and Muslim women suffer under Islam. None told me to fight against oppression. It was inside me. Women are treated as slaves, sexual objects and childbearing machines,’ added Nasreen.

According to Nasreen, noted Kerala writer Kamala Surayya, who was Kamala Das before she converted to Islam, had now realised that she had made a mistake in converting to Islam. She had held a meeting with Surayya here earlier.

‘When I asked her if she regrets becoming a Muslim, she said ‘yes’. She has realised that Islam does not give equality,’ said the writer.

She said she would love to return to her country, and if not allowed to then she would like to live in Kolkata because a writer likes to live in surroundings familiar to them.

Save us from the crackpots who see Zionist conspiracies in everything

Save us from the crackpots who see Zionist conspiracies in everything

Nick Cohen
Sunday August 13, 2006
The Observer

Within minutes of the airports being closed, angry emails arrived at our 'Comment Is Free' blog. 'Is it such a coincidence that this happens just when Zionists, UK and US are aiding and abetting mass murder in Lebanon?' asked one. 'Funny how these terrorist "threats" seem to knock other more important stories off the news agenda,' railed another.There was much more in the same vein. All shared the assumption that the Islamist 'threat' (always in scare quotes) is a phantom menace used by the government to distract the credulous masses from Lebanon, Iraq or wherever abroad and panic them into abandoning their civil liberties at home. In this scenario, Islamists are little more than puppets jerking about to the commands of Western governments and the international Jewish conspiracy, which time their arrests to bury bad news.

The care and nurturing of a society's children is a sacred trust

The care and nurturing of a society's children is a sacred trust

The Psychology Behind Suicide Bombings
From an interview of Pierre Rehov, French Documentary Filmmaker who has filmed six documentaries on the intifada by going undercover in Palestine.

By Dean Draznin and Arlyn Riskind

IHC Abstract
Rehov explains what motivated him to produce his 7th film on suicide bombers. He is horrified by the real side of Islam, which fosters a culture of hatred by brainwashing, to such an extent that the only solution to the members’ life problems is to kill themselves and others in the name of their religion. This has resulted in the neurosis of an entire civilization.

Q. What inspired you to produce "Suicide Killers," your 7th film?
A. I became fascinated by the fact that suicide bombers are all smiling one second before they blow themselves up.

Q. Why is this film especially important?
A. People don't understand the devastating culture behind this unbelievable phenomenon. My film is not politically correct as it shows the real face of Islam, a culture of hatred in which the uneducated are brainwashed to a point where their only solution in life becomes to kill themselves and kill others in the name of a God whose word, as transmitted by other men, has become their only certitude.

Q. What insights did you gain from making this film? What do you know that other experts do not know?
A. I concluded that we are facing a neurosis at the level of an entire civilization. Young Muslim men live in sheer frustration, with no opportunity to experience sex, love, tenderness; where separation of the sexes is absolute. So is contempt of women, who are totally dominated by men. This leads to a pure anxiety, in which normal behavior is not possible. Suicide killers are mostly young men dominated by an overwhelming libido that they not only cannot satisfy but are afraid of, as if it is the work of the devil. Since Islam promises 72 virgins to those frustrated kids, killing others and themselves to reach this redemption in heaven becomes their only solution.

Q. What was it like to interview would-be suicide bombers, their families and survivors of suicide bombings?
A. It was a terrifying experience, like interviewing people in an asylum, where polite, apparently normal people are convinced that what they say is for them the absolute truth. A mother says: "Thank God, my son is dead." Her son had became a shaheed, a martyr, which for her was a greater source of pride than if he
had become an engineer, a doctor or a winner of the Nobel Prize. Their interpretation of Islam worships death much more than life. Also ego, because this is a sure way to become a hero. Shaheeds are the cowboys and firemen of Islam: what kid has never dreamed of becoming a cowboy or a fireman?

Q. You say suicide bombers experience a moment of absolute power, beyond punishment. Is death the ultimate power?
A. They see death as a door open to the afterlife. They want the reward that God has promised them. They experience this single delusional second of absolute power: they've become God's sword.

Q. Describe the psychopathology of a suicide bomber.
A. Generally kids between 15 and 25, with feelings of inferiority. In the western world, they would easily have become drug addicts, but not criminals, since they don't see good and evil the same way that we do. The only solution to this deep-seated pathology is to be willing to die and be rewarded in the after life in Paradise.

Q. Do all Muslims interpret jihad and martyrdom in the same way?
A. All devout Muslims believe that, ultimately, Islam will prevail on earth. They believe it is the only true religion and there is no room for interpretation. While moderate Muslims don't think they will see absolute victory of Islam during their lifetimes, and they respect other beliefs, the extremists believe in ruling the entire world as described in the Koran. Each victory of a Bin Laden convinces 20 million moderate Muslims to become extremists.

Q. What kind of culture results in suicide bombers?
A. Oppression, lack of freedom, brainwashing, organized poverty, placing God in charge of daily life, total separation of men and women, forbidding sex, giving women no power whatsoever, and placing men in charge of 'family honor'.

Q. What socio-economic forces perpetuate suicide bombings?
A. Muslim charities are usually a cover for supporting terrorist organizations in countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran. ironically, Palestinian suicide bombers receive financial support from the western world, money donated to a culture that utterly hates and rejects the West.

Q. What role does the U.N. play in the terrorist equation?
A. The UN is in the hands of Arab countries and third world or ex-communists countries. Its hands are tied. The UN has condemned Israel more than any other country in the world, including the regimes of Castro, Idi Amin or Kaddahfi. Through UNRWA, the UN is directly linked to terror organizations such as Hamas: 65% of their apparatus in the so-called Palestinian refugee camps are members of this terrorist organization. $400 million are spent every year,
mainly financed by U.S. taxes, to support 23,000 employees of UNRWA, many of whom belong to terrorist organizations.

Q. You say that a suicide bomber is a 'stupid bomb and a smart bomb' simultaneously. Explain what you mean.
A. Unlike an electronic device, a suicide killer has until the last
second the capacity to change his mind. In reality, he is nothing but a platform representing interests, which are not his, but he doesn't know that.

Q. How can we put an end to the madness of suicide bombings and terrorism in general?
A. Stop being politically correct and stop believing that this culture is a victim. Radical Islamism today is nothing but a new form of Nazism. Nobody tried to justify or excuse Hitler in the 1930s. We had to defeat him in order to make peace with the German people.

Q. Would you predict that we are beginning to see a new wave of suicide bombings outside the Middle East?
A. Every successful terror attack is considered a victory by the radical Islamists. Extreme Islam thrives on regional conflicts. Right now, there are thousands of candidates for martyrdom lining up in training camps in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Pakistan. Inside Europe, hundreds of illegal mosques are brainwashing lost young men who cannot find a satisfying identity in the western world. Israel is much better prepared for this than the rest of the world will ever be. Yes, there will be more suicide killings in Europe and the U.S. Sadly, this is only the beginning.
