HAMAS WINS BIG!
Jimmy Carter, the former US president, leading
a team of 900 foreign observes said, the elections in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip were "completely honest". Definitely honest, compared to the
standards set by the US, when George Bush ‘won’ the Florida 2000 election
by denying the blacks (Afro-Americans) and all the other coloured folks
a vote, as they were poised to vote for the democrats. It must have brought
pleasant memories back of the good old days, when the likes of Bush could
The turnout was 78 percent of 1.3 million voters,
greater than most of the ‘democracies’ in the West, where the election
results are known even before the election. Such ‘elections’ are determined
by money, and not the votes: and if this is democracy then we need to redefine
what constitutes oligarchy! It was amusing to see the responses of the
Western leaders; some of them could be described as idiotic even if I was
to be kind! Anyway, I have taken the liberty to respond to those
Italy: "It is a very, very, very bad result," (Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister.)
Hamas: Oh, Why is that? I thought you were in favour of free and fair election, a pillar of democracy we keep hearing. Perhaps you prefer the mafia style oligarchy instead. Or may be you want our leaders to invest in porn and crime syndicates. When you clarify your commitment to democracy, you know the type of democracy, which is not rigged by money and ‘influence’, perhaps then we can understand why you thought the result was a bad one. We did our best to play by the rules of your game but it seems somehow we have misunderstood the rules!
United Kingdom: “But I think it is also important for Hamas to understand that there comes a point, and that point is now following that strong showing, where they have to decide between a path of democracy or a path of violence." (Tony Blair, the British prime minister)
Hamas: Mr Blair, if you oppose violence, what is your army doing in Iraq. Why have you invaded a country, killing between 30,000-100,000 innocent civilians, who have done no harm to your people? Is that not a clear example of unprovoked violence? Yes, a bit like your football hooligans, just ask Nick Griffin, he might give you a guided tour. If violence and democracy are mutually exclusive, then why do you not lead by example; disband your nuclear weapons, stop making huge profit from the sale of arms to dictators around the world. Why do you not call for the total nuclear disarmament and instead of just selectively targeting Iran, they have yet to produce anything nuclear.
Before you lecture us about violence, at least
do the decent thing and get the facts, I know that can sometime hurt your
conscience - that is if you have one. Tell us how many Palestinians and
Israeli Jews have perished since 1948 or 1924. Who have been the bigger
victims numerically? They are not the perpetrators but the real victim
of state-terrorism. Did you
USA: "I don't see how you (Hamas) can be a partner in peace if you advocate the destruction of a country (Israel) as part of your platform." (George Bush, the US President.)
Hamas: Absolutely correct Mr Bush, how can you be partner if you are destroying a legitimate country. That is exactly what the Iraqis are asking now. In fact how can you even talk of peace, as your armed forces have destroyed a country, a country that has never attacked your people? Do you not feel any shame in even uttering words like “peace”? Perhaps you no longer understand what shame is, like many of your soldiers demonstrated in Abu-Ghraib, as many do regularly on Jerry Springer.
We would urge you to look at the facts. Please
have a look at the map, it shows clearly who has been diminishing and who
has been expanding since 1948. I refer to a map, as you have demonstrated
numerous times you have a very poor grasp of history and geography. I know
it might shock many of your citizens; some would dismiss the map as propaganda,
as many think Palestinians invaded Israel in 1948. How many Palestinians
houses destroyed compared to how many Jewish
amas is not opposed to the existence of the State of Israel; we have no objection to its existence as long as it is not in Palestine. In fact, if you are so committed to a Jewish state, then why do you not lead by example? Remember deeds speak louder than words. You have a continent to play with. Give them Alaska, or New York. We and the rest of the Islamic world will give you more than 100% cooperation. By the way, while you are at it, please take with you all the other puppets you have imposed on the Islamic world. As for opposing the existence of Israel in Palestine, this is the opinion of the 1.5 billion Muslims and those who want a compromise, only because they are pragmatic not because they believe it to be a just olution.
USA: "You cannot have one foot in politics and another in terror"… that for the US, Hamas was still a terrorist organisation. (Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State).
Hamas: Hamas condemns terrorism, especially the
larger state terrorism of the US, UK and Israel. We condemn the terrorism
in Iraq, its people terrorised under “shock and awe”, so that it can provide
cheap entertainment for your people. Yet, how proud you Americans feel
calling others violent, but this is what happens when one becomes immune
I am afraid Hamas could never match the terror of your firepower and your war machine that has consumed 30,000-100,000 civilians. We favour renouncing violence as the Palestinians are the ones who are terrorised, by the weapons that your government supplies to Israel. So that the ‘chosen’ people of God can have their way at any cost and some would classify that as a Nazi like ideology. Hamas will lay down their weapons when the Israelis lay down their weapons and return our lands and homes. Moreover, Hamas will support the right of the Jews to be compensated for the hundreds of years of persecution faced in Europe.
Why do you not admit that you do not favour genuine democracy but a government that will be subservient to your interests? It would stop all the arguments and debates. Remember when FIS (Islamic Salvation Front) was poised to win a fair election, the Algerian government postponed it. Similarly the Turkish army constrained the Islamic party led by Necmettin Erbakan, after it won the election. No cry for democracy than, which had to wait until 2003, when the US launched its war on terror (Islam), so building democracy became a good pretext.
This is not the first time the Western leaders
has been exposed for their arrogance by arrogating themselves to speak
for the Muslims, when they do not even represent their own population.
Indeed, it was amusing to think how much agony the right-wing commentators
must be in, like Jim Carey, in the film “Liar Liar” - they cannot utter
“free and fair election”
The party that has won has given its blood to its people and for the Muslims Ummah (Community). Was it not our children with rocks and stones have been defending Al-Aqsa, while the Muslim armies sit in their barracks and our so-called leaders commit hideous acts of treachery after treachery. By our blood and by our soul we will continue to sacrifice, until the return of Salahuddin Al-Ayubi with his army, and regain our peace and security; the land of olives (Bilad Az-Zaytun) will once again become green from red. We urge the rest of the Muslims Ummah to help us to hasten the return of Salahuddin Al-Ayubi and as a first step replicate our humble example in their respective lands.
