Hey, members of the “Squad,” Tlaib, Omar, AOC, Pressley! Hey, so-called civilized countries, United Nations, elite universities, and all depraved, Hamas-supporting deniers of Israel’s right to exist. I have a message for you, straight from the heart of “Palestine”:
Your cause is “sick” and comes “from the pit of hell.”
Who says so? Netanyahu? Jewish settlers? “Apartheid state” apologists?
No. Mosab Hassan Yousef says so. The eldest son of one of the founders of Hamas. That’s straight from the horse’s mouth, born and bred in the belly of the beast. He says so.
Once a member of Hamas himself since he hardly had a choice, he left after coming to recognize the evil of Hamas and its “sick” cause after seeing it close up and personal. Before leaving the terrorist organization, he spent 27 months in Israeli prisons where he said, “Hamas was torturing their own members. They killed, actually, and tortured hundreds of prisoners.”
Lovely. But according to the seemingly endless legions of moral idiots who have been staging pro-Hamas demonstrations throughout the Western world, the terrorists are righteous freedom fighters trying to regain stolen land.
Stolen land? Don’t make me laugh. Let’s start with Islam’s violent conquest of a vast swath of the planet. Why isn’t that described as “stolen” or “occupied” or “colonized?” In fact, did you happen to know the overwhelming majority of countries on earth have some kind of ongoing territorial disputes? Most are relatively minor, but not all.
Take Cyprus, for instance. How come no one’s upset about Islamic Turkey’s 1974 invasion and subsequent occupation, to this day, of the northern part of Cyprus? Or how about Pakistan? That’s a country that was literally carved out of India in order to accommodate — guess who? Muslims. In land area, Pakistan is 42 times the size of tiny Israel, but no one seems particularly bent out of shape over it. How come?
Because it’s not filled with Jews. Only a territorial dispute involving a country filled with Jews would cause such multitudes to take to the streets in cities worldwide and unabashedly call for genocide — of the Jews.
So it’s not really a dispute over land, is it? It’s a blind and inexhaustible hatred by Muslims (and plenty of others) for the people known as “Jews” and Muslims’ (and plenty of others) insistence that Jews don’t have the right to exist anywhere inside the vast area of conquered lands known as the Islamic world. Even though the Jews were there long before there was any such thing as Islam.
Still, you would have thought that after the incomprehensibly vicious slaughter of defenseless innocents — which included burnings, mutilations, and beheadings — all carbon-based lifeforms falling under the category of homo sapiens would be able to unequivocally condemn Hamas. But if you thought that, you were wrong. Even though the son of a Hamas founder has that moral clarity, most of the world doesn’t and the very halls of Congress reek with the stench of the moral depravity of Jew-hating Hamas excusers.
You know who else approves of Hamas? BLM. (Yo, paragliding terrorists for Palestine! Whaddup!) No surprise there. After all, BLM is basically a terrorist group itself that longs for the overthrow of the U.S. government, hates merit-based capitalism, and wants to end policing and even the nuclear family. And they’re none too fond of white people, which has everything to do with why they like Hamas so much. It’s because Israelis are (mostly) white and are, therefore, “colonizers” and “oppressors.”
And now we’re getting to the heart of the matter: Israel’s “whiteness.” Seen at one of the countless pro-Hamas demonstrations in the United States was a sign with a picture of the Star of David, underneath which said “WHITE SUPREMACY.”
And there it is.
But it’s Israel’s “whiteness” in combination with the fact that, as a country, it has been wildly successful, and smack in the middle of a sea of Islamic failure. They don’t call “envy” one of the deadly sins for nothing, and the surrounding Arabs have maybe the worst case in history. Instead of trying to emulate Israel’s success, they wallow in envy and dream of genocide.
By the way, yet another tale of Hamas barbarity has surfaced. In one Israeli house they … they … It’s hard to even say it …
They put a live baby in an oven and turned it on. While they gang-raped the mother. To the sounds of the screaming baby.
And you want these inhuman monsters to have a state? Right next to Israel? Or anywhere on God’s green earth?
Nowhere this side of hell!
But let’s say, for the sake of argument, Rashida Tlaib’s fondest wish somehow comes true: From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. (That’s her one-state solution.) Do you think she’ll be pulling up stakes and heading for the newly liberated “Palestine?” Laughing. Out. Loud. No way she leaves America’s feeding trough and relative safety to go live in a place we all know would be a violent, poverty-ridden mess from one end to the other. She may be morally depraved, but she ain’t stupid.
You could give them a thousand “Palestines” and it wouldn’t make any difference. The problem is that so-called “Palestinians” are obsessed with death and genocide while having absolutely no idea how to build a prosperous and successful society. Nor do they seem even mildly interested in the subject.
Meanwhile, deluded college brats march arm-in-arm with hate-filled Muslims in the streets of Western cities calling for genocide and blathering about a free “Palestine.” What does Mosab Hassan Yousef think about them?
“They are just warriors on keyboards. They’re just storming world capitals saying, ‘Free Palestine! Free Palestine!’ They don’t know what the hell Palestine is! I am Palestine! And what I say is enough of Hamas! It’s enough of the corrupt leaderships!”
But the majority of world opinion appears to disagree with Yousef.
Yes, yes, there was an attack on October 7, some people did some things, but that didn’t happen in a vacuum, and we can’t let innocent Gazan “civilians” get hurt. What Israel is doing is a genocide!
The level and extent of moral confusion and depravity throughout the Western world is now so extreme and so irrational . . . Well, let’s just say things are starting to feel decidedly “biblical.”
If this conflict ends with any result other than the total destruction of Hamas, and especially if it’s because the West just couldn’t stomach “civilian” casualties, then barbarism wins and we haplessly wait for its next occurrence … and the next and the next … The West would then continue to bleed out, civilizationally speaking, and all the while deliriously blathering on its deathbed about Islamophobia, climate change, and trans rights.
Any last thoughts, Mosab Hassan Yousef?
“We are going to remove them from power … and we are going to bring them to justice … and everyone who takes their side today, in this state of confusion … are going to regret taking the side of Hamas.”
Beautiful words, but I’m afraid he’s wildly optimistic. Even if Hamas is indeed destroyed, I have no confidence that the degraded Western leadership and citizenry will regret their support of Hamas. They’ve already proven they simply don’t have the capacity to discern between good and evil. How would Hamas’s destruction change that? It might even accentuate it. They might see it as a genocide while ignoring the blatant attempt at a real one by inhuman monsters committing unspeakable evil.
As I said, this is starting to feel biblical, both in terms of the Jews in their ancient homeland, as well as the moral collapse of what we used to call “Christendom” and the implications thereof going forward. Israel is fighting pure evil while the West, which is completely unmoored from its Judeo-Christian foundation, has everything upside-down and is contextualizing, if not outright excusing, that evil.
It’s hard to see how this ends well. Seems like getting one’s (spiritual) affairs in order might be advisable.Published in
