Don’t worry: I judge you by the measures you take

Don’t worry: I judge you by the measures you take

Ahmed Yousef has written an opinion piece for the boneheads of the Guardian: “Judge Hamas on the Measures it Takes for its People.” Well, I do judge Hamas by the measures you take, Ahmed. That’s why I find your politico-religious movement absolutely reprehensible. If you were Caucasian American Baptists, how would the world feel about you? Would the Norwegians support these conservative Texan militiamen firing rockets at Canada and Mexico?


Muslims benefit from the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” I, however, am not a bigot. I expect you to behave in a civilized manner regardless of your ethnicity and religion.

The Hamas charter

Here’s what Yousef says about the charter.

This was a text written in the early days of the first intifada. Our youth rebelling against the Israeli occupiers needed a rallying cry—a written expression of their resolve. The charter was designed to be that inspirational document and it was never intended to be the governing instrument, the guiding principle or the political vision of the movement.

I accept that it was intended as a rallying cry. This is the cry, from Article Seven of the charter.

Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: 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: O 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 Bukhari and Muslim).

That’s all I need to know. Hamas wants to kill every Jew in the world. The movement has nothing to do with “liberation,” since Hamas itself is a brutal dictatorship that kills Palestinians who disagree with it. Mohammed Sweirki was a member of Fatah. On June 10, 2007, Hamas gave him a one-way trip off the fifteen-story al-Ghifari Tower.

Hamas liberated Sweirki from his life.

Also, Ahmed Yousef really should coordinate with Hamas spokesman Sami Abu-Zuhri before either talks to the media.

“The program [of Hamas-backed list to legislative council] sets out the details and means for its implementation over the next four years, while the [Hamas] charter talks about vision and strategy…The movement is adhering to the constants and strategies outlined in the [Hamas] charter.”

Back to Yousef. This one’s hideously funny.

Were pundits to truly scrutinise Hamas’s actions since its inception, they would find not a single official statement or position that is based on denigrating another faith, certainly neither Judaism nor Christianity.

It took me ten seconds to find this.

That’s the official Hamas TV channel, so it’s safe to say that it’s the position held by Hamas.

Yousef now veers into total fantasy.

Palestinians are no different from any other people around the globe. But we certainly are less capable than the Israelis of manipulating the media.

No, actually Palestinians are utterly different from just about all other people around the globe. I’ve never seen anything as heinous as Operation four Little Martyrs, a Hamas deception in which four small boys were murdered in order to blame it on Israel. Here’s a Hamas video that tells people to rejoice in the violent deaths of their loved ones.

Never in my life have I encountered such degradation of human values. When Hamas took over Gaza, they began a systematic regime of killings and torture that continues to this day.

And to claim that Palestinians are less adept than Israel at manipulating the media is laughable. It might be true in Opposite World, but here on Earth the Israelis wouldn’t be believed if they said the sun rose in the east.

The press are stenographers for Hamas. They simply write what they’re told to write. And almost everything they report is a lie. This Telegraph video consists entirely of Palestinian footage and claims that were rebroadcast without any form of fact checking.

Here’s what the British stenographer wrote.

A dozen shells hit the Al Aqsa hospital in the town of Deir el-Balah, Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra said.

He said four people were killed and 60 wounded when the shells landed in the administration building, the intensive care unit and the surgery department.

A doctor at the hospital, Fayez Zidane told Al Aqsa TV station, a broadcaster affiliated with Hamas, that shells hit the third and fourth floor as well as the reception area.

The damage is not consistent with Israeli tank shells. For urban combat the IDF employs the M329 Kalanit, which has six containers of shrapnel.


There’s no evidence of shrapnel having hit the hospital. This is the reason why.

Ahmed Yousef continues his litany of self-pity and lies.

We have been condemned for firing home-made rockets in protest at a siege that is aimed at depriving over a million and a half people of the basic necessities of daily life: electricity, clean water, medical drugs and equipment. We are also blocked from importing everyday building, industrial and farming materials necessary to provide jobs and develop a viable economy.

Nope. The blockade is a result of the rockets. And you have plenty of Iranian, Chinese, and Russian rockets.



Your lies might go over with the Guardian, but my mind isn’t crippled by Jew-hate. Sorry.

A united Palestinian front is an essential step towards finding a just and durable solution to this conflict; and yet, perhaps, it is this unity that worries the occupier. A divided people, after all, are far easier to subjugate. Hopefully the international community will not be duped again by Israeli hawks and will give the dove a chance to carry the olive branch forward.

By “united,” you mean “under the control of Hamas.”

Israeli authorities busted a large-scale plot by Hamas groups in the West Bank to launch widespread terror attacks in Israel and topple the Palestinian Authority, the Shin Bet security intelligence agency announced Monday.

Hamas headquarters in Turkey, which organized the terror plot, hoped deadly violence would weaken Palestinian territories so that militants could carry out a coup and overthrow Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, the Jerusalem Post reported.

People in love with murderous terrorists actually disgust me more than the murderous terrorists. Hamas will never win an armed conflict; Operation Protective Edge culled the herd by about a thousand. I think they should be given every war they want. By publishing the lies of terrorists like Ahmed Yousef, the Guardian assures that there will be more wars.

So be it. They’ll all end the same way.
