What Does Hamas Really Stand For?


Hamas is a Palestinian Sunni Muslim group that is internationally recognized as a terrorist organization.  Hamas which has dominated the Gaza Strip since 2005 when Israeli settlements were voluntarily relinquished settlements to implement the Oslo Accords as part of the peace process.
Hamas is an acronym for Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, Arabic for “Islamic Resistance Movement”.  The acronym means “Enthusiasm”.  But sometimes acronyms are given more meaning by actions. 
The modus operandi of Hamas is to indiscriminately lob crude missiles at their Israeli “enemy” (the one’s who ceded the territory where they operate).  But these “brave” Muslim Brotherhood affiliates operate their rockets in the middle of civilian settlements, schools  or mosques.   The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) discovered 20 missiles in schools run by UNRWA and then handed them back to the “local authorities” to then be fired at Israel.  Then there is  the Shuja’iya neighborhood in Northern Gaza, Hamas used a mosque and two adjacent buildings connected by tunnels were extended to the Israeli border and used as a depot for Hamas rockets. 
Even though the Israeli Defense Forces give early warning to civilians to evacuate before the IDF attacks in Gaza, the inhabitants defiantly refuse to leave.  Some pro-Palestinian apologies reason “Where can they go?”  But Hamas spokemen urged the civilians not to heed the IDF warnings.  These human shields can then be pointed to as brutality by their enemy.  This is why Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu labels Hamas tactics as a double war crime.
Hamas knows that it can not win conventional warfare against the IDF, but if enough Palestinian civilians are killed during Operation Protective Edge, the International Press can decry the humanitarian loss along with an anti-semetic gloss.  
Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meier anticipated this culture of death among militant Palestinians when she proclaimed: “We can
forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing
us to kill their children.  We will only
have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.
“.
Even though Hamas might sound like enthusiasm in Arabic, based upon their tactics and weltanschaaung, what Hamas really stands for is Hiding Among Mosques and Schools.

A Bit On ISIS Marking Christians for Extermination and Expropriation in Iraq


 
As jihadist Sunni Islamist terrorists from ISIS/ISIL strive to create a sharia inspired Caliphate as they take over territory in Iraq and Syria, they are slaughtering innocent Christians.  
 
 

 



However, even sharia law allows for dhimmitude, second class citizen status for “people of the book” (i.e. Jews and Christians) so long as they pay the jizya tax.  But that is not good enough for ISIS jihadists.  They have taken to mark the buildings of Christian institutions with spray-painted red marks indicating holdouts to exterminate and expropriate.

“Nun” 14th letter in Arabic alphabet

 The symbol is “Nun”, the 14th letter in the Arabic alphabet.  It is the first letter in the name “Nazara” (or Nazarenes) the way in which Muslims have referred to Christians since the 7th Century. This is intended as a badge of shame for what is perceived as a contemptible and disobedient sect.

Some of Sarah Palin on “No More Kings”


At the 2014 Western Conservative Summit, former Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) rallied the audience of 2,000 conservative grassroots activists with a scathing speech decrying politics in the District of Calamity (sic).
Palin noted that: “[W]e don’t do kings.”  But this was not a feel good historical allusion ala Schoolhouse Rock.

Al Gore Agitates: “Our Democracy Has Been Hacked”


 

Sorry Al Gore, the United States of America is not a democracy, it is a Federal Republic which holds democratic elections.

The video kvetches that Congress can’t pass meaningful gun control, thus the system has been “hacked”.  Guess that the former Vice President hasn’t read the Constitution lately.  There is something called a Second Amendment which involves the rights of citizens to bear arms. Even the Supreme Court in the Heller case reaffirmed that INDIVIDUALS have the right to keep and bear arms.

If they Congress did want to do something about it, we would likely have to change organic law.  Perhaps the former Vice President has not read the Constitution lately, but there is something called the Second Amendment, which allows Americans to keep and bear arms.  Congress would have to vote 2/3rds in favor in each chamber and then it gets sent to the states, where 3/4ths of the states would be needed to ratify.  If states wanted to do something, they could try convening an Article V Convention of States.  More less radical activism on guns, this is the proper domain of the states.

Since Gore wanted to sound techie when referring to America’s Democracy being hacked, it merits a geeky retort GIGO– Garbage In, Garbage Out.

 

Mainstream Media Distorts Money and Politics




Not even progressives are buying the “Poor Off” between former Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Vice President Joe Biden, two leading liberals for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination. 







However, once the heir apparent to the White House is apparent, the Lamestream Media will be back to demonizing the Republican rich.
