Absurd Headline of the Week

Absurd Headline of the Week:
From today’s Detroit Free Press, “Palestinian Leader Shows a Softer Side of HAMAS.” (Sub-headline, from second page of print edition: “HAMAS: Leader Shows Militants’ Softer Side.”)
What–does he advise using moisturizer before pulling the homicide belt switch?

Ismail Haniyeh: HAMAS’ “softer” Mass-Murderer-in-Chief

When are we going to hear about Mohammed Atta’s “softer side”? Oops–Oprah already recommended the book on that in her magazine.
*** UPDATE: Note hateful comments by reader and “Religion of Peace”-nik Amir and responses by Tim. Highly recommended reading.

Muhammad Atta was attacked USA without any justification. Hamas (as a Palestinian group) has legal right under international law to target Israeli military in the West Bank and Gaza as Israeli is illegal occupying force in these areas. Hamas doesn’t have any right to target civilians, but despite that, in the last six years, Israel has killed 4 times more Palestinian civilians than Hamas, Fatah, and Islamic Jihad combined.
Anyway, Muhammad Atta and al-queda didn’t come to power in fair election. Get used to it — Hamas was chosen by their people as their govt. Hamas will be around long after you are dead.

Yasser-we all know you came up with the number
“4” because on Monday’s,The Koran claims that Moslem males are supposed to shtup their goats 4 times during each of the five daily services Muhammad ripped off after clocking Jews during Yom Kippur.Since The Koran approves of moslems blowing up mosques,can I get one of your homies to blow up The El Eyesore(Al Asqua)Mosque in Jerusalem,so there’s no excuse for Saudi’s to be allowed to visit?

Amir lies again.Hamas first made its’s appearance in the 80s, when they perpetrated one of the most horrific murderers, seen by police. 3 Jewish factory workers, refugees from Arab countries arrived early at their jobs at the Alum Shin aluminum factory. All 3, including a young woman were slaughtered and dismembered.their blood was used to write Hamas slogans on the wall, like “Hamas wil be around after your all dead” Afterward there was a big celebration among the savages in Gaza, with handing out candy etc. Its subsequent history of murder of chidren going to school on buses and waiting in line at a disco, people at religious ceremonies etc. is well known and applauded by the likes of Amir. As far as the number of Palestinian Arab civilians killed by israel is concerned, these figures are totally distorted. They include Arabs executed by Palestinian death squads for alleged colaberation with Israel, women killled by their families in so called “honor killings”,people killed in inter Arab blood fueds etc. etc.Well controlled studies such as ” An Engeneered tragedy” show that 80% of the Israelis killed were civilian non- conbatants, whereas only 25% of the Palestinains killed were in this category. The Israelis killed included a far higher percentage of women, childreen and the elderly.Another study in Middle East Quarterly showed similar results

As far as Amir’s fatuous claim that the Israeli soldiers are a legitimate target for the murderous thugs of the various Arab gangs because this is an illegal occupation is concerned. Consider the following: 1)Israel occupied thes areas when it was attacked in 1967 by 5 Arab countries. 2)After the ’67 war Israel offered to return all this territory in return for peace. The Arab League answered this generous offer with the 3 nos of Khartoum “NO negotiation, no recognition, No Peace” because of this the famous advisor to presidents and expert in international law, Walt Whitman Rostow said Israel could keep these territories for ever. Many other experts agreed with Rostow. Despite this, the stupid Israelis brought Arafat and his Army from Tunis in 1993, and by 1995 he was in charge of 98% of the Arab population of the territories. When President Clinton and PM Barak tried to finalize the deal in 2000, Arafat went home and started a war against Israel. But thanks Amir for acknowledging that the USA was attacked by Atta on 9/11/ 2001. I thought it was the Joooz that did it along with blowing up the mosque at Samarra, causing AIDS, bird flu,drawing the offensive cartoons of your prophet etc., etc., etc.

All lies.
“Israel occupied thes areas when it was attacked in 1967 by 5 Arab countries.”
Israel was not attacked in 1967. Israel attacked in 1967.
“I do not think Nasser wanted war. The two divisions he sent to The Sinai would not have been sufficient to launch an offensive war. He knew it and we knew it.” Yitzhak Rabin, Israel’s Chief of Staff in 1967, in Le Monde, 2/28/68
Moshe Dayan, the celebrated commander who, as Defense Minister in 1967, gave the order to conquer the Golan…[said] many of the firefights with the Syrians were deliberately provoked by Israel, and the kibbutz residents who pressed the Government to take the Golan Heights did so less for security than for the farmland…[Dayan stated] ‘They didn’t even try to hide their greed for the land…We would send a tractor to plow some area where it wasn’t possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot. If they didn’t shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance further, until in the end the Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that’s how it was…The Syrians, on the fourth day of the war, were not a threat to us.'” The New York Times, May 11, 1997
(rest of lies snipped)
The World Court ruled in 2004 that all settlements in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem are illegal (go look it up The World Court also ruled Israel occupation illegal. It’s perfectly legal under international law for Palestinian to attack military target in the occupied territories. If you are going to compare that with 9/11 and al queda, then you have zero credibility.

Amir on March 6, 2006 at 3:18 pm

“An Engeneered tragedy” at show that 80% of the Israelis killed were civilian non- conbatants”
As I remember that report was done by IDF. Is that unbiased source? All neutral sources disgree with that. See for example btselem reports
Also, Amnesty International
“Palestinian children have been killed and injured by the Israeli army, as a result of deliberate as well as reckless shooting by soldiers and shelling and bombardments of densely populated residential areas including refugee camps in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Others were killed when Israeli soldiers used excessive and disproportionate force during demonstrations or when the army launched missiles into busy streets to assassinate Palestinian militants.”
Cite some other sources next time besides Israeli propganda.

Amir on March 6, 2006 at 3:39 pm

Amnesty International not an unbiased source but IDF is unbiased source? LOL. Amnesty International is respected and unbiased source to everyone except biased pro-Israeli fanatics who deny Palestinians exists but demand a Palestinian group like Hamas recognize Israel. Go figure.

Amir on March 6, 2006 at 4:36 pm

The report at the site mentioned is from the scholars at the “International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism” not the Israeli Army . A similar result is published in “Middle East Quarterly” by other scholars. “B Tselem’ based its report on the wildly innacurate figures from the PA (Palestinian Authority), already commented on. This is the same group that reported that the population of southern Lebanon displaced by the Israeli invasion in 1982. They gave a figure larger than the whole population of Lebanon. The same group that reported 500 people killed by the Israelis in Jenin in 2004, when the real figure was 56, most of them combatents. As far as the 67 War is concerned Nassar blockaded the Suez Canal and the Gulf of Aqaba to shipping going to Israel. This is an act of war, no matter what out of context quotes you can come up with. By the way these shipping lanes had previously been guaranteed by the international community, including the US. Nassar then moved his troops into the demiliterized Sinai Peninsula displacing international forces placed there to guarentee the peace , also an act of war. He then said he was waiting for Rabin to respond. This is the basis of the famous Israeli song “Nassar M”Chakeh LaRabin”. The Syrians joined Nassar in the attack on Israel. This was not just shelling of those Israeli farmers ,who had been shelled by the Syrians for years. King Hussein was asked by Israel not to join the hostilities, but he was urged by nassar to join and shelled Jewish Jerusalem without provocation. The Israelis had a recording of the conversation between nassar and King Hussein, which was broadcast widely at the time. So stop the bullshit Amir. I’m not as dumb as your usual audience.

Poor Amir, I feel sorry for you.
You keep dragging your case for the defence of all anti-Jewish Arabs and the Muslim terrorist murderers before the world court of your peers, and it has been found wanting.
The Jew, the pagan and even the Catholic just canÔø?t excuse your hideous brothers, and their agenda of death for mankind. The crescent should be replaced with the skull, which more accurately depicts IslamÔø?s intentions for GodÔø?s beautiful creation.
Militant Muslims can hardly expect a perfect response from Israel in every military circumstance or encounter, besieged and overwhelmed as Israel is, surrounded on all sides by the Islamic armies of Satan, and forever under the Arab crescent of death.
But that is the depth of the Islamic hypocrisy.
They expect Israel to be on its best behaviour, just when they demonstrate the absolute worst in human behaviour. As children of the lie, they easily surpass even the brutality of the Serbs. Muslims love evil and peace just has no hold on them.
I would love to see Americans, and of course Canadians, live for one year in Israel under the present conditions of unpredictable Islamic terror. They would come back quite sober, and none would criticize the defensive responses of Israel then, or romanticize their Islamic enemies. No, not even you Oprah!
However, donÔø?t worry. The Islamic merchants of death will continue to bring their war of terror back to American soil just as they are doing so successfully in France presently. Since so many seem to have forgotten the lesson of 9/11, maybe when a nuclear bomb is detonated in say, New York, and itsÔø? origin of entry into the United States is traced back to one of the Dubai controlled ports, Ôø?hopefully America will then have time to listenÔø? I mean before other secreted nuclear bombs go off that were smuggled in through the other Arab-controlled American ports~ I mean, did anyone ever locate all those missing Soviet nuclear bombs, those ones that were somehow lost in the fall of Communism?
The Muslims are all like flies on shit with each other. Your mouth will drop as you hear even the most average, Ôø?peacefulÔø? Muslim defend the actions of his extremist brother. Just put some incident out there, and just watch as they come Ôø?round and defend it.
The war was against Communism in the last century.
In the new millennium, the NEW WAR will be against Islamic fundamentalism.
So buckle up, because its going to get a LOT worse, before it gets a lot better!
And folks, you better WAKE UP because Islam is playing for keeps!
Ôø?And for those who have religious stirrings, NOW is the time to prayÔø?.

Hamas’ “softer side” is forgetting to put nails and rat poison in a bomb belt.

P. Aaron on March 7, 2006 at 12:56 pm

It seems only a matter of time before Israel will formally declare war against the Gaza strip for the launching of mortars and missiles from this Hamas controlled territory. The history of the world is filled with borders of countries reshaped by war. In this case, we have mortars and missiles launched from a territory controlled by an entity which pledges your destruction. What is Israel waiting for? A declaration of war, some typical false braggadocio from Hamas, “conquer” Gaza and put an end to those problems. Next, focus on the West Bank.
