How To Disappear Completely

An excerpt from an article by Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa Lappen at Front Page Magazine:

Judging from how Hamas is treated by the U.S. Administration, you would not know that it sits at the heart of the Islamo-Fascist movement, which President George W. Bush concretely defined and condemned three weeks ago.

Compare Hamas statements and its charter to those of Al Qaeda, Hizballah and other Islamist organizations: all strive to establish a Caliphate encircling the globe. Al Qaeda says: “We will turn the White House and the British parliament into mosques,” as documented by Jonathan Dahoah Halevi, Director of Orient Research Group in Toronto.

Similarly, Qatar-based sheik Yusuf al Qaradawi says “Islam will take over Europe by Dawa.” The spiritual leader of HAMAS, the late Ahmad Yassin said: “The 21st century is the century of Islam,” and his successor Mahmoud Zahar says, “Israel will disappear and after it the US.”

President Bush declared: “the way forward is confronting the threat armed gangs present to the creation of democratic Palestine.” But he stopped short of demanding that Hamas disarm. Still, that was enough to infuriate Hamas spokesman Sámi Abu Zuhri, who protested, “We consider this as a serious American interference in our internal affairs aimed to create an internal conflict.”

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat insists that allowing Hamas to participate in the election would be the terror group’s first step toward giving up its weapons.

I have a hard time believing that George Bush, and people in his Administration iare not aware that Hamas is bent on destruction. Still, it is almost impossible to understand their policy, or behavior towards Hamas. The only possible excuse is if we are simply biding our time.

This war is not just about Al Qaeda. We need to take out Iran, Syria, Hizbollah, Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, and we need to fundamentally change our relationship with Saudi Arabia.

If we don't do these things we will eventually be destroyed.
