Hamas often use the word ‘Neo-Nazi’s’ for Israelis; in psychology you call that ‘sublimation’; you accuse someone of something where you yourself suffer of/from.
That Hamas exist out of egotistical, feudal, tribal clans with an intense Islamite agenda is clear, and that they only serve their own people (and their radical Islamic view) and not the Palestinians is well-know, at least for me. Yesterday I found an article on an interesting UK based blog Caledonian Comment; The Thinking Blog. I agree with every word:
The United Nations (UN) yesterday halted humanitarian supplies into Gaza after Hamas forces (above) seized an aid convoy. Members of the Islamist group which runs the territory took control of 10 trucks in the second such confiscation within 2 days. The aid had been intended for the victims of the Israeli offensive which killed 1,300 Palestinians, left 5,000 wounded and thousands homeless. A spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency which supports much of Gaza’s 1.5 million population, said: “The Hamas government must return all of the aid that’s been confiscated and we have to be given by the Hamas government credible assurances that this will not happen again.” So now we see clear evidence that Hamas is hurting its own population. But what mystifies me is : a fortnight ago we had an unholy alliance of anti-semites, naive students, Islamic militants, social workers, do-gooders, Guardian readers and middle class lefties all taking to the streets to protest at Gaza being blockaded so that food and medicine couldn’t get to the population. But now that Hamas are doing the same thing, where are the demonstrators ? Don’t hold your breath.
At the moment the PM of Turkey is the only advocate of Hamas, and of course his wife, Emine...with the backing of Iran...
