Four More Years!!

 

No, this is not a chant for repeal of Amendment XXII and reelecting President Obama nor is it a call for election of President Bill Clinton. We advise it to be the rallying call of conservatives who also plan on finding some way of coming to terms with this year’s election choices. Instead they need to choose one or the other of the current choices or find some workable alternative and not some pie in the sky on a wing and a prayer choice and dedicate themselves over the next four years to finally get organized and intelligent in their approach to the election of a President. With the current problems surfacing faster than one can track, let alone counter intelligently, we felt this article was seeing new life as it was not posted during the Republican primary season when first composed. That will also explain any idiosyncrasies.

 

Republican Candidates into South Carolina

Republican Candidates into South Carolina

 

Finally choose one and only one true and acceptable conservative candidate and not run seven conservatives against one interloper and then complain. Yes, there are a compliment of conservative candidates who all have sufficient qualifications making them promising as potential candidates for President and challenging Trump’s reelection bid or against Hillary Clinton’s reelection bid and any one of them would probably be an improvement. These are each best in one or two categories and they overlap each with the other in one or another of the categories and none are across the board head and shoulders above the rest but them all contending for the nomination results in exactly what we have seen for the past; it will be twenty years come next election cycle. When are the conservative public going to wise up and demand that the conservatives find one candidate to run and the rest please have a seat and support the selective choice as otherwise ten conservative running and one moderate, or worse, one left leaning candidate cleans up winning merely twenty-five to thirty percent and the conservatives all in single digits splitting the remaining votes between them. By the time sufficient of the conservative candidates are whittled out of the mix and a single individual representing the then conservative consensus is so far behind and the momentum of the least conservative or worse candidate makes them uncatchable and soon becomes the presumptive Republican candidate and that’s the end of that election season. We have watched at best moderate candidates lose while true conservatives who would have had the total support of the Republican base no questions asked sitting with their campaigns broken and in pieces as they had torn and ripped at each other’s support base until it was diluted and each fell one after the other and if even two are left the more liberal candidate walks off with the nomination.

 

The conservative base, the Tea Party, the NRA Second Amendment supporters, the pro-life supporters, the free-trade pro-business financial conservatives, the social conservatives and all the other identity conservatives need to swallow their pride and work as a team and not as a series of independent groups vying for complete control and superiority pushing their own candidate all other concerns aside. That is an equation for disaster and simply trying the same old comfortable paths to ruin one more time because this time it will be different and they will persevere and win the nomination. Instead, perhaps a conservative convention need be held where the different groups can all be represented and work and find a candidate which they all can agree upon. This candidate will not be the most desirable to a majority of groups as they will not come from amongst their ranks but then they will be more favorable to their cause than allowing a complete loss with no conservative candidate running for President and another four years of standing on the sidelines complaining about the primaries and how the entire system is broken. The system works just fine; it is the pride of too many individuals that is breaking the system as far as selecting the strongest conservative candidate. Stop trying the same thing expecting different outcomes which, according to Albert Einstein, is the definition of insanity. Work together instead of directly competing and dividing the votes of the base fracturing any possibility of fielding a candidate in the election. Is that too much to ask of groups of people who claim to be pragmatic, logical, organized, practical, realistic, reasoned and operating in the real world? This should have been obvious but somehow your demand on perfection and complete control leads conservatives to demand purity in the candidate and refuse compromise. Stop and stop now before the country swerves so far left that there is no path to return to the middle, let alone to a more conservative and reasoned legislating. Perhaps when working together there may be a candidate who, though not necessarily being chosen by any of the numerous groups and not possessing the purity of essence to any of the varied position still is supportive over the broadest spectrum of the desired causes. The conservatives need to understand something the left learned a long time back, the we will scratch your back and you all will scratch ours and together we will be stronger.

 

Four more years is the deadline for conservatives to find a way to communicate and relate such that a consensus candidate can be found to be the acceptable if not preferred candidate such that the majority of the different convictions, principles, values, philosophies and doctrines while also possessing the ethical, moral and principled beliefs and deeds with levels of accomplishments and achievements making them acceptable to the widest sets of viewpoints as possible. Not being capable of compromise the conservative interests may as well pound their chests as they wither and decline off into history as the center continues to drift further and further into the distant furthest left point on the political spectrum. The two presumptive candidates who survived with the most support despite often not being the majority vote getter are the perfect example of what a divided conservative base produces. Perhaps the theme song refrain should be (as sung in Where Have All the Flowers Gone) “When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?” (Song below)

American Jewish Reggae Star Matisyahu Star Disinvited

 

American Jewish Reggae Star Matisyahu was disinvited from appearing at the Rototom Sunsplash festival in Benicassim, north of Valencia, Spain. The refusal was based on his refusal to sign a sworn affidavit professing support for the Palestinian State’s rights to exist, which actually means support the end of Israel as the Arabs have made it evidently clear their replacing the Jewish state is the only acceptable solution to their quest for statehood. None of the other performers were demanded to sign such an affidavit and we are willing to bet that everyone attending the concert will not be pressed to sign such an affidavit, well, unless they are found to be Jewish, or worse, Israeli. This demand was made because Rototom Director Filippo Giunta and the others who are arranging the concert buckled from the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction on Israel and Jews) pressures demanding that Matisyahu be banned or made to publically state his belief in the Palestinian cause, which is also an affirmation against Israel, or be banned from performing. The result was Rototom Director Filippo Giunta reportedly turning to Matisyahu and demanding he produce a “signed statement or video” which stated “in a very clear way” that he supported the establishment of an Arab “Palestinian” state. This episode clarified some other developments by having a torrent of thoughts coalesce leading one to a singular theme as a disturbing progression by one of the major political parties in the United States. The rise in anti-Semitism is not only healthy and growing in Europe, but has been showing signs of blossoming with the left in the United States.

Let’s go back a number of years and we might remember when Senator Joe Lieberman appeared to have fallen on the wrong side of the Democrat Party leadership. Some claim it was his placing Israel ahead of party loyalty and others claim it was his apparent abandonment of liberal principles, especially his support of the Iraq war. Senator Joe Lieberman had run afoul of the Democrat Party so they put up a challenge opposed to him for voting wrong way on Middle East Iraq votes, particularly the surge. Were there other Democrat Party Senators who voted the wrong way, yes but perhaps not as consistently. The reason being that the Democrat Party had started to pull away from supporting Israel with blanketed support as the Palestinians had started to become a cause celeb. Part of the turn was initiated in parallel to the opposition to the war in Iraq and especially the surge. Senator Lieberman fell on the wrong side of everything Middle East and foremost by supporting the surge and the last hope for the military to prove successful rather than accept defeat and find a politically acceptable manner of pullout with whatever loss of face and repute as might be occurred. This led to the Democrat Party running Ned Lamont against Joe Lieberman with full Democrat Party guns behind Lamont in an intra-party shootout. The result, unsurprisingly, was Ned Lamont; so, Senator Lieberman made a run as an independent against his Democrat nemesis and the Republican and took them both to school winning his last hurrah and a final stint as Senator from Connecticut. There were some who posed the question that perhaps some of the reasoning for the turning against Senator Joe Lieberman was at least partially due to anti-Israel sentiment or even anti-Semitism.

 

Perhaps if the debacle with Senator Lieberman had been a one off situation then there would have been no reason to hold suspicions but going forward a short time and we come to the Democrat Convention of 2012. There was one embarrassing situation for the Democrat Party Convention Chairperson who was presenting the floor with a motion to amend the Party Platform to restore to the platform faith in G0d and support for Jerusalem to be the recognized capital of Israel. The vote was taken three times with the Ayes and Nays each growing proportionally larger as the two sides each attempted to be heard and thus each call for a vote gave the same result which was insufficient to accept the motion. The desperation was evident on the Chairperson’s face who in the end simply declared the motion passed despite the vote from the floor. We have shown the video before in our article Some Misperceptions of the Arab Israeli Conflict. The display would be amusing if not for being so particularly sad. This time the culprit is not only Anti-Israel and Anti-Zionism and plain but also blatant anti-religion. If only this were the last instance.

 

The latest two incidents occurred really recently. The more intense and obvious was the treatment served to Senator Schumer, the Senior Senator from New York, a faithful Democrat Party stalwart who also has lobbied very strenuously for President Obama’s agenda and many other Democrat positions over the years placing him in line to replace Senator Reid as head of the Democrat Party in the Senate once Senator Reid steps down. Then Senator Schumer informed President Obama that he was going to vote against the Iranian Nuclear Agreement in the Senate and requested to be permitted to announce this the next morning quietly. That was not to be permitted. The White House came out shooting breaking the news almost as immediately as they were notified and a coordinated all on assault against Senator Schumer came charging with all guns blazing from the far left of the Democrat Party. Senator Schumer was denied his quiet announcement after which he had promised he would not lobby others to vote with him thus making as small an effect and as few ripples as possible. But that was not to be; instead Senator Schumer was to be pilloried from pillar to post and made a great spectacle as a warning to the rest of the Democrat Senate and House members. Senator Schumer was also used as to further President Obama’s spectacle of claiming the only opposition to his Iran Deal came from Israel and only Israel as there, according to the White House and friends, were no other nations against the Iran agreement. There were even accusations which claimed that Senator Schumer was a traitor as were any supporters of Israel who were against the deal, especially those who, like Schumer, were Jewish. This was resorting to an old libel against the Jews as being more devoted to some amorphous Jew conspiracy which was always against the ruling party or group thus all Jews were traitors. There have been leftist sources who have utilized the fact that Schumer is a Jew and pro-Israel in his voting record to piece together the obvious problem that if Schumer was the poster boy for the Jews influence, money, media, lobbyists and world behind-the-scenes influence by the Jews working, now against the President, the deal with Iran and the good of the United States; then every Jewish group would be against the treaty but there is J-Street, three-hundred-forty Rabbis and another groups of Jews from Hollywood among others supporting the President. The seeming open anti-Israel and anti-Zionist slant and outright defamation, especially pertaining to Senator Schumer and anyone or any group supportive of Israel or Jewish group in opposition of the Iran Agreement must be traitors and only their allegiance to Israel over the United States can be behind such opposition. Senator Schumer, and I am willing to bet any Jewish Democrats opposing the President’s pet foreign policy project, the Iran Nuclear deal, can only be driven by their traitorous allegiances. There have also been calls and threats and even covered promises that Schumer not only can forget being placed at the top spot which his untiring work for the Democrats over his career most definitely qualify him for, but this one “sin” of supporting Israel and, as he has stated, the United States from a bad deal which is being made with a regime that is notorious for cheating on every treaty and agreement they have ever entered and allowing them to continue without dismantling their entire nuclear program and with an inspection routine with holes large enough to fly a B-52 through and not even clip either wingtip, for this Schumer and any others of the Democrat Party are being denied any future top positions or chairmanships and will likely face a challenge placed to defeat them in their next election cycle. Is this the new Democrat Party, pull the extreme leftist anti-Israel line and toe it religiously or the Democrat Party will call out the shock troops and destroy you no matter your prior service to the Party?

 

 

Democrat Presidential Candidate and apparent front-runner Bernie Sanders greets and thrills an extremely packed house up to the rafters with enthusiastic supporters. Bernie Wow’s the crowd who responded with explosions of applause and yells of approvals. Bernie loves Oregon and Oregon loves Bernie, too bad the chiefs of the Democrat Party don’t particularly like Bernie Sanders. One can wonder why but it does appear to be the going trend among Democrats to dis anybody who even fairly takes Israel’s side even if only half the time.

To answer that question we can go to a Jew who is seeking the Democrat nomination for President, Bernie Sanders. Bernie is not an ideologue when it comes to supporting Israel but still he was questioned about holding dual citizenship both American and Israeli. He does not and never has as far as we here could ascertain though he has visited Israel a number of times, big crime there, Bernie. The interesting item has been with Hillary falling victim to her own perfidy and dropping in the polls like a lead balloon, Bernie Sanders is rapidly becoming the Democrat Party frontrunner. This has spawned some in the leadership of the Democrat Party from disparate states and organizations to panic and begin desperately seeking anybody but Bernie candidates. They have gotten so desperate as to float the names of John Kerry and Al Gore, two men who have proven their worth as Presidential candidates by losing to who the Democrats believe was the worst President in all of history, George W. Bush. There have been calls to get behind Joe Biden for President. These actions are more proof of the Democrat panic of having a Jew, even a socialist and extreme leftist Jew as their front runner. I will not claim that the leadership of the Democrat Party are all anti-Semitic, or even that there is a sizeable such persuasion in the leadership. But I will suggest that the leadership of the Democrat Party feel quite assured that they cannot win the Presidency placing a Jew at the top of the ticket or likely anywhere on the ticket and that is what has them in such a panic. The saddest thing is they can still count on receiving well over seventy-five or even eighty-five percent of the Jewish vote no matter who they run or do not allow to be their frontrunner. I am unsure which is more distressing, the clamor for anybody but Bernie or the near complete support for a Party which would not have a Jew as their leader by the Jewish voters. Somewhere there is a disconnect and I am afraid it is with the Jewish voters who vote with blinders on so they will see only that which they are meant to see. Bernie Sanders, next target?

The big news nobody is talking about is the great opportunity for the Arab Palestinian people in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) who reside in Area A and Area B to finally get a political voice the world has clamored for in their own elections. Israel might even be moved to permit those parts of Area C, the areas which according to the original intent of the Oslo Accords were visualized to belong to Israel in any final agreement, be granted the allowance to vote in any Palestinian elections. What many people are unaware of in the entire world outside the Arab and many parts of the Muslim world is that the Arab Palestinians have had their own autonomous region within Israel since the agreements of the Oslo Accords were signed. Despite the Arab Palestinian leadership, all of it including Fatah, the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades (the military arm of Fatah and the Arab Palestinian Authority) and technically even Hamas and Islamic Jihad as the vast majority, if not all, of their members are also Arab Palestinian. The problem comes with the dissolution of the Unity Government making those residing in Gaza technically not granted a vote as they have presumably returned to being under Hamas. Now if this was to be declared the vote which was supposed to have been held within six months of the formation of the Unity Government, then all Arab Palestinians from Area A, Area B and Gaza, and with Israeli discretion and permission for those residing in Area C might be permitted the vote providing the Arab Palestinians desired such sufficiently to have them so inquire such of Israel. One need remember that Abbas prevented such a vote as he was staring down the barrel of a rifle marked losing the election and falling to Hamas’ revenge. But now with the Unity Government dissolved and Abbas returned to his President for Life position and his needing a new Parliament, this would be the perfect time for him to hold actual elections and even allow the new Parliament to choose a Prime Minister while Abbas, as already noted, could retain his President for Life or could go all the way and show his confidence in the people to reelect him to the President of the Arab Palestinian Authority, a title he oft times uses the euphemism of Chairman likely to differentiate his being the head person in Fatah and the PLO as technically the Commander in Chief of the al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades. Oh, let us not rule out his newly granted title since the United Nations General Assembly and so many European and international agencies and government starting with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) having recognized the twenty-third Arab State, Abbas assumed the title of President of Palestine (perhaps one should ask him what the borders are and see how much of the globe he will claim along with all of Israel).

 

Getting all serious, recently former United States President and major Israel detractor and self-appointed inquisitor, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, Jr., visited the Middle East, meaning made a pilgrimage to Ramallah to give the Arab Palestinian man for all positions, Mahmoud Abbas some additional political weight and recognition while also not missing the opportunity to lay yet another wreath at the tomb of Yasser Arafat. Arafat was one of the most admired of men to President Carter and terrorist extraordinaire as well as inventor of the plane hijacking, suicide bomber, car bomb and so many other constructive firsts plus being the first Egyptian citizen to claim the leadership of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in 1964, three years before there existed any occupied lands. Arafat also claimed to be the titular head of the Arab Palestinian people, a position he simply assumed without receiving any votes as his terrorist PLO operated from within Jordanian occupied Israel. His PLO terrorist entity claimed the remainder of Israel as their intended lands just as it remains to this day, lands west of the Jordan River. Just like Yasser Arafat, his second in command, Mahmoud Abbas, and the rest of his hand-picked and KGB trained assassins and terror masters, as only the best trained rabble of the world were chosen to manage and lead in the destruction of Israel, had as its main goal the elimination of the entire state of Israel and then incorporating it into Jordan as they had no desire to actually rule a state as this was not part of their training and repertoire as remains obvious to this day. This would include the disposition by unknown means of its Jewish population, also known as their final solution as it so closely resembled another madman’s ideas of a final solution when it came to Jews and others he despised and President Jimmy Carter is consistent in his regards for Israel as he laid out for the world to read in his infamous not quite best seller, actually nowhere even approaching such esteemed status, titled Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, available on Amazon.

 

What was absolutely amazing was that upon departing President Carter made a suggestion that I actually support. You can imagine my astonishment and even remorse that someday I would have to own-up to agreeing with arch anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semite former United States President Jimmy Carter, but such is the case and I am unable to make or even offer the faintest of denials. President Carter suggested that there be elections held for a new government as they had been denied that privilege since the elections in 2006 when they elected a Hamas majority Parliament which posted the writing on the wall that should Mahmoud Abbas allow elections for his position he would likely lose to Hamas’ Ismail Haniyeh, the titular head in Gaza. This has been hanging over Abbas’s head as his personal Sword of Damocles threatening to behead him immediately, if not sooner, should elections be held and he to lose and Hamas or any other Islamist group should replace Abbas. Despite this never being a subject Abbas would consider, former President Carter stated during a joint news conference with Abbas, “We hope that sometime we’ll see elections all over the Palestinian area and east Jerusalem and Gaza and also in the West Bank.” Obviously former President Carter more than likely did not pass this idea for announcing such a threat to Abbas with anybody from Mahmoud Abbas’s offices and may have just had it roll out of his mouth before he could realize what he was about to, nope, in the midst of, oh darn, already called for new Palestinian elections, wow, I guess senility has taken hold as President Carter must have thought for a second, due to the surroundings and their obvious Middle Eastern flavor, that he was in Jerusalem and was calling for new Israeli elections to include Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and Gaza, simply remarkable. Actually, I believe that Jimmy Carter knew exactly where he was standing, who stood at the podium next to him, and still stated the need for Palestinians be granted their right to vote as stated in the Arab Palestinian Authority Charter and have been suspended since 2006. If nothing else, Jimmy Carter really does place a lot of faith in democratic elections as the solution to all of the world’s problems, even if he probably believes Israel prevents such elections world-wide.

 

The thing is with this statement by President Carter a month and a half ago and the dissolution of the Unity Government; this would be the perfect time for the world, especially the Europeans and President Obama, to demand that the Arab Palestinians finally be granted their voting rights to decide who is to lead them going forward. They have, according to far too many leftist, the inalienable right to elect their representatives on the determined timetable as stated in their governing documents, in this case the Arab Palestinian Charter, without interference and in an observably free and independent system designed and implemented to permit a fair and honest accounting of the people’s will and the enacting of the governance they choose in such elections. Every time there is an Israeli election we hear the demands for the Palestinians to be granted their voting rights despite the obvious fact that they are not Israeli citizens. That claim would be paramount to demanding that all Mexicans residing in Mexico who have a family member living in the United States be permitted to vote in the United States elections as their relatives will be influenced by such an election and that might affect the amounts of money they could send home and alter their livelihood. The Arab Palestinians have their own autonomous region which the exception for international relations and defense of their borders from outside attack (a responsibility which falls to Israel and the IDF, the same IDF which also protects Israelis) and even pay taxes to the Arab Palestinian Authority and not to Israel as long as they work within their autonomous area boundaries of Area A and Area B in the contested area which Jordan renamed West Bank rejecting the historical names of Judea and Samaria as they were, their terminology at the time, too Jewish.

 

The only question I must scream out is, where are all those voices, all those European political entities, all those NGOs, the United Nations and its entourage of alphabet agencies, President Obama and the State Department, the Non-Aligned Nations, the Arab League, the Saudi Royal Family, the Iranians and especially their Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Egyptian President Sisi, and all those human rights groups who with malicious and knowing guileful deceit demand Palestinians vote or is that demand reserved only when Israel holds elections to form a new government and never ever to be uttered when the Palestinian virtual dictator and obvious President for Life Mahmoud Abbas, a.k.a. Abu Mazen, known as his name de guerre, would necessarily risk his position which he has refused to chance since 2005 when assuming the role after the death of Yasser Arafat and not stood for election in any of the elections years following where perhaps the 2006 elections might have been premature, such does not apply to 2009, 2012 and, strangely enough, coincidently 2015 otherwise known as right now! I want to hear the voices of all those otherwise hypocritical Israel bashers who have demanded the Palestinian Arabs be permitted to vote, well, that time is right now and there will probably never be a better timed dissolution of the Arab Palestinian governance and thus perfect timing for elections to be held possibly as early as September and definitely before December 24 of 2015 as a celebration of all the wonders the Prophet gave the Muslim people and the celebration of his birthday this year. What could be a better way to celebrate the birth of the prophet of Islam than to hold elections for the new government of, for and chosen by the people.

 

What do you say Mr. Abbas, how about holding elections at least for the Parliament even if you are too timid and unsure of your position and popularity, or even acceptance by the people you claim to speak for, allow them this once to speak themselves. The world will be a better place after such an election as there will be a definitive line between Israel and the Hamas governance which would finally and irrevocable unite Judea and Samaria with Gaza and then Israel could demand that Hamas prove their ability to run the territories already autonomous and under their complete and unfettered control, rule well and we can discuss a state, use the position as a rocket launching platform which can hardly ever miss striking some target, even if they would almost all be civilian targets, then I believe you know what follows. I feel pretty sure you’re being granted uncontested rule over the Arab Palestinian areas would be the golden opportunity to have that state everybody else claims erroneously that your desire. You and I, we both know fully well what it is you desire as you wrote the charter and we both have read your charter thousands of times looking for the right key, the correct combination of concessions which would satiate your lusts for what might be a lasting victory but we both know what your charter, the Hamas Charter calls for and it is not all that different from the ISIS Charter, is it. We both know your standard, your stated slogan, you know, the part that goes, “Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Quran its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.” In what might be best described as the preamble of the Charter it states, “Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors. (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, May Allah Pity his Soul).” Your Charter also appears to be centered on looking beyond just Israel but places a target on the entirety of the Jews. As your Charter states, “This is the Charter of the Islamic Resistance (Hamas) which will reveal its face, unveil its identity, state its position, clarify its purpose, discuss its hopes, call for support to its cause and reinforcement, and for joining its ranks. For our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave, so much so that it will need all the loyal efforts we can wield, to be followed by further steps and reinforced by successive battalions from the multifarious Arab and Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory prevails.” You even chose to include a fairytale that is not included in the classic and original Quran but you probably could not resist its thoughts of merriment charging here and there in a great slaughter, that just had to be the reason for including the following quote, “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree. (cited by al-Bukhari and Muslim).” Then again, the Jews are but your appetizer, not your main course, your main course is the Christians and after them the idolaters and every other human not yet forced to surrender to your will and Allah. You also deny the Quranic statement that the lands of the Hebrews were reserved to them and they are to be protected in their ownership and life in those lands when your charter claims trespass by the Jews settling in their recognized ancient lands as defined in the Quran but your charter claims otherwise when stating, “When our enemies usurp some Islamic lands, Jihad becomes a duty binding on all Muslims. In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad.” The Hamas Charter seems overly preoccupied with the Jews and contains very little about the importance for the spiritual advancement of the Muslims within your fold. There is little contained in the Hamas Charter which departs from violence and threats of violence. It is as if there must be no end to the bloodletting until the last standing human can stand upon the pile of skulls and bones and only then declare to his world conquest, the world of one, alone and thus fated. Where are the calls for prayer and introspection and spiritual enlightenment and the finding of peace within oneself or is the only peace understood by Hamas the peace of the grave. Such a worship of a culture of death, destruction and eventually the sacrifice of the self for the cause of vengeance even against peoples who never harmed you or any of your brothers and sisters of Islam and merely wish to live their lives and die after a full and rich life where they hurt relatively few and helped those needing their helping hand and shown largely kindness and would greet you as a potential friend yet such friendship can never be as if anyone does not belong to Hamas and worship Allah as Hamas dictates such is to be performed, then they are infidel and must be slaughtered. What then after only the few thousand who are Hamas remain, do you then purge from within your ranks as your orgy of death must continue until not quite none remain, just the one whose manner of prayer and keeping with the final vengeance of the prophet be fulfilled, then that one can begin a life of what and for what, to be the last person standing? What a reward, what an empty reward.
