HAMAS is now joining Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain in backing the Syrian rebels against Bashar Assad. We’ve seen this same scenario repeat itself in the Middle East several times before. And each time, the HAMAS side prevails over the “winning” side, NOT America. These American “leaders” are morons. And they haven’t learned. It’s like a giant echo chamber throughout the Middle East. First, all of these morons backed the Egyptian “democracy” protesters. Then, they backed the Libyan rebels. In each case, the result was predictable and the same. In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood took over, and it’s more chaotic and repressive than ever under Western ally Mubarak. In Libya, Al-Qaeda-tied extremists took over, and it’s more chaotic and repressive than ever under Qaddafi, with whom America had a no-nukes agreement and a detente.
Now, we are doing the same thing again. And it’s apparently not a “hint” that HAMAS is on the same side as “we” are. This is the natural result of the Muslim world democracy and “free” elections pushed for eight years by George W. Bush and now realized with a lot of help from pressure by Barack Obama. Both parties are to blame for this, and don’t think Mitt Romney would be any different. He wouldn’t be.
Hamas has thrown its political clout behind an uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Palestinian Islamist group’s longtime patron and host, a shift that cracks a formidable alliance and further widens the Middle East’s sectarian divide.
Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, told worshipers at Cairo’s Al Azhar mosque during Friday prayers that the political party and militia was supporting the uprising against Mr. Assad, calling the revolutionaries “heroic,” according to the Associated Press.
Hey, isn’t that special? Hillary, Barack, and John McCain think they’re heroic, too. Weak minds think alike.
He made his comments alongside several Muslim Brotherhood members in front of thousands of admirers at Al Azhar, one of the oldest religious universities in the world and the seat of Sunni learning, lending sway to his Sunni world view. Hamas is the Palestinian wing of the international Muslim Brotherhood movement which has its headquarters and ideological center in the Egyptian capital. . . .
The altered loyalties could raise further questions about the prominent role Islamists are playing in the Syrian rebellion. The leader of al Qaeda, the Sunni-aligned global terrorist movement, recently backed the Syrian uprising as well. Several recent attacks on Syrian military operations bore al Qaeda trademarks, according to the Syrian government and some security analysts.
Yup, this is how Hillary and Barack and their Arab Spring (helped along by Bush) are trying to defeat Israel without actual, direct involvement.
In his speech Friday in Cairo, Mr. Haniyeh asked the Muslim and Arab world to defend Jerusalem against Israeli attempts to weaken its Arab identity of the city, according to the Associated Press.
He recited an Arabic poem that says that the path to Jerusalem starts in Cairo. The crowd cheered when he said Hamas wouldn’t recognize Israel, and chanted, “Hey, Haniyeh, do not leave the gun” and “To Jerusalem, we march in the millions.” . . .
Essam al-Erian, head of the Egyptian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs committee and a senior official in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party said . . . “I think that after this revolution, Hamas is welcome in Cairo, in Tripoli in Libya and in Tunisia and also Morocco,” Mr. Erian said.
In just three years of Obama, the entire Middle East has been destabilized. And in eight years of Bush, the Arab Spring “democracy” dynamic was begun, spending American lives to hand over Iraq to Iran’s Sh’ites and build roads in Afghanistan.
Only in America.
