HAMAS, Qaeda & Obama On Same Side of Syrian Conflict, Backing Rebels

By Debbie Schlussel

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.


All of ‘Em on the Same Side as HAMAS’ Haniyeh in Syria

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.

wouldn’t it be nice
if anti-president o’bama
would so much as once

stand on the side of the united states
the constitution
the american people

you’d think as a politician
he would with the american people
since so many blindly and stupidly
voted for him

the only allegiance he demonstrates
is to dehumanized globalism
and of course
the satanic hate cult

unlike the usual depiction of the antichrist
i don’t expect him to declare himself g-d
he will declare himself aah-lahh

The only thing standing in the way of an Islamist takeover in Syria is Russia.

They aren’t fooled by the nature of the rebels. Sure, Assad is a repressive and cruel dictator.

Its just so happens his opponents are even more extreme than he is and Syria’s various minorities don’t want Sunni Islamist domination.

That’s what the US wants to impose upon them whether they want it or not. The Syrian uprising against the Assad family dictatorship may or may not succeed. But one thing is for sure: its not going to result in democracy coming to the forefront in Damascus. Not any time soon.

The way to do this is to realize that Islam, as a Civilization, is incompatible with Democracy. Ain’t gonna happen. It is also incompatible with decent Western values.

Therefore, we stay out of these internecine fights unless it involves our security (Iran getting a bomb) or Israel’s, or the Kurds, or NATO’s.

Iraq was going for WMDs, and wouldn’t let us inspect. We should have destroyed his regime, put up a security area for the Kurds, (who treated us well, and within whose territory we have not been assaulted), and let the rest of the animals kill each other.

Iran also needs an intervention, WITHOUT Nation-Building. Nation Building is just an excuse for Liberals to trap Conservatives. It serves no other purpose.

Not all people and cultures crave freedom. Some are just backward MFs. We should be guided by ISRAEL on interventions in Syria, since they are our ally who are the next door neighbors. Seems simple—but it does require an active dorsal-lateral prefrontal cortex.

You refer to Obama as a moron. Far from it. This man is getting the kinds of governments he wants in the Middle East. He does not support democracy. He supports Islam. And Obama’s little bitch Hillary is not much better.

Now McCain, well he is a moron.

DS and everybody here, a few weeks ago I was on facebook with one of my friends and he posted and linked a story like this pertaining Syria, Bashir Al-Assad and the so-called rebels in Syria. He mentioned that the people in Syria were losing their lives and I agree with him on that, I also told him that if we help the so-called rebels in Syria, we’ll be backing al-qeada, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.

Let’s not also forget that Assad is a puppet to the Iranian mullahs under Ahmandinejad in Iran and also a puppet to hezbollah in Lebanon. Few weeks ago one of al-qeada’s leader’s called for all muslims worldwide to go into Syria and help the rebels, because he wasn’t going to wait for wests aid to help the so-called rebels, when I saw read that article I said to myself, “oh my friggin goodness, the Obama administration and the rest of the western world better NOT go along al-qeada’s advice on helping the so-called rebels”!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R,

The point is not that Assad is pro-American, pro-peace with Israel or a liberal democrat.

He’s none of those things. He is simply the least worst thug in a bad neighborhood overrun with them. The fact that Hamas is supporting his opponents doesn’t mean it has cast in lot with secular democrats. It has decided the wanna be new bad guys will help it achieve its objectives far better than the Assad clan did.

That should be a red flag to American morons blindly supporting the Syrian opposition. They never seem to learn anything from past failure. We’d simply be helping the new bad guys leverage themselves into power and they’ll never thank us infidels for helping them. It doesn’t take a genius to grasp the full picture. We have no business meddling in Syria. We ought to let them fight it out there forever.

Apropos of what JEG said, I’m sure we all remember the President’s blunder in referring to 57 states. “How could he make such a mistake? Doesn’t he know there are only 50 states?”

Needless to say, he doubtless had in mind the Organization of Islamic Cooperation which is composed of 57 countries. Most likely he had the OIC in mind when he referred to the 57 states. This is where his mind is, and Hillary, McCain & the rest of them are so unsupportive of Western values, and so muddled in their thought (sic) that they slide right along with him.

Debbie Schlussel,

You forgot to mention that the U. S. is borrowing money from China to build roads in Afghanistan.

Strange how clinton and obama are wanting to help the “rebels” over throw their government because a couple hundred people have been killed. Yet Saddam Huessan used chemicals weapons on thousands of people and not only didn’t they want to do anything about it but then kept up the propaganda that Bush lied about wmd’s. So what exactly is in it for obama to get us sucked in to yet another war that is not our business? The media sure dropped our getting involved in Africa a couple months ago, not a peep. What is going on there? Did we leave are we there? Not a word.

Ender on February 27, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    Ender, very good points!

    Yes, we are actually STILL in Africa…but now in FOUR countries…fighting the Lord’s Resistance Army…

    -South Sudan
    -Central African Republic

    Let’s hear it for anti-war Obama and his Noble Peace Prize!!!!

The interesting thing here is that Hamas turned on its former patron and protector in its hour of need. If this is how Hamas treats its friends, what could an actual enemy hope for? This is something to keep in mind when the media insists that the united States has to negotiate with Hamas, or that Israel accepts its existence.

Worry01 on February 27, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Thanks for posting this Debbie. As usual, the mainstream media is interested in the good story versus the facts. We keep seeing videos of protesters being shot at, but nothing showing what preceded the shooting. Yet I seem to notice that these “peaceful” protesters are firing weapons and shouting “Allahu Akbar!”. Gee, I wonder where we’ve heard that before. God forbid anything interfere with that victim narrative, such as that this has always been a sectarian issue with the Sunni’s chomping at the bit to have at the Alawites. These guys are willing to get into bed with Hamas, AL Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and anyone else (the West) who would help them. Who do these media geniuses think will run the country after Asaad? The student protesters, women, pro-Israeli parties and peace activists? These aren’t people standing up for freedom and liberty, they’re Sunni extremists looking to wipe out a secular (albeit repressive) regime and replace it with a theocracy. How’s that going to work out?

At least with Asaad we know he is a bit of a pragmatist. He knows that Syria can’t defeat Israel, which is why he arms Hezbollah to do his dirty work, but that group is no existential threat to Israel. However, a theocratic Sunni dictatorship in Syria could very well turn the region on its head. How does a nice haven for Al Qaeda, replete with the leftovers from a heavily armed regime sound to you? What’s that? We already have that. Oh yeah, Libya. This is going so great.

Honestly, I’m surprised that this didn’t happen any sooner. Hamas, like al Qaeda, is an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, like in Egypt, is @ the forefront of the Sunni uprising there.

Sometimes, when I want to check out what Arabs think of each other and sidestep their propaganda, I visit al Bawaba. This is a Middle Eastern Jihadi portal, and obviously is anti-Israel and anti-Western. However, it is sometimes interesting to read when one wants to know what Arabs really think of each other. There was an interesting analysis of the situation in Syria here. In particular, look @ the slideshow there – it lists the ramifications for everybody involved – Iran, Russia, China, Hizbullah, Syrian oil, Hamas/Islamic Jihad/Fatah, Israel, Hugo Chavez, the Arab League & Saudi Arabia. Once one reads it, one knows why everyone is doing what they’re doing wrt Syria.

The most recent news there – w/ the Arab League now openly talking about arming the rebels, looks like the civil war that I was hoping for is inevitable. One thing people have noted is how few defections have happened from Assad’s ranks, unlike Gadaffi’s. Reason is simple – Assad’s officers are all Alawites, Shia, Druze, Christians but not Sunni Arabs. Even groups that might otherwise be pro-democracy, like the Syrian Orthodox Church, has refused to back the rebels, b’cos they know that it’ll be a rerun of what happened in Iraq if the Ikhwan takes over.

In that slide, Israel was stated to be hoping for Assad’s remaining in power, given that the devil one knows is preferable to the one it doesn’t. Actually, I don’t think it’s even that – Israel has got to know that if the Muslim Brotherhood is in power in both Egypt & Syria, then these 3 regimes in Cairo, Damascus & Ramallah can threaten Israel again the way it did in 1967, but w/ a far different ground reality.

    Excellent observations. I am going to check out that site. I find it tragicomic that some of these conservative American Christians are backing the opposition, when first agenda on their list after wiping out the Alawites will be the Christians. They are fools, you can’t have a democracy in a theocratic Muslim state. What kind of freedom is it that a young Alawi, Christian, or yes even Sunni woman, won’t be able to leave the house without covering her head? Once that Islamist genie is let out of the bottle, it will never allow itself to be controlled.

    This country needs to grow up and stop romanticizing these Arab springers. There are definitely secularists among them who would want more open societies and legitimate relations with the West and Israel. How’d they do in the elections in Egypt? Very simply, they are not organized, they are ineffective, unarmed and without influence….except over our media.

The bad guys are winning…..look at Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, etc. Syria is next. Obama and his ilk want to eventually destroy Israel – and bring the United States “Down” to third world status. Iran will soon have the bomb. Is this part of an “October surprise?” The caliphate is well on its way to Middle East and European domination. England, France, Spain are as good as gone.

By the way, The “Aisle crosser” McCain is on board with O-Hillary. Can butt boy Graham be far behind?

Without the Second Amendment, there will be no First Amendment.

The english translation of a russian language report on the Houla Massacre:


Most of these crimes were committed by islamist US allies.
