Protocols of the Elders of Hamas

I was at the UN Security Council hearing on the war in Gaza on Thursday as a guest of Ambassador Eugene Gasana of Rwanda who held the Security Council presidency through July.  I heard the regular condemnations of Israel for being indifferent to the murder of children. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said that there could be nothing more shameful than Israel killing children while they slept at a UN school that Israel targeted.

The UN Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay went further and said that Israel deliberately targeted civilians.

Deliberate.

That’s quite an accusation. And she better be right. Because if she’s wrong, she is guilty of yet another blood libel against the Jewish people.

The facts, of course, are otherwise. To Hamas, Palestinian children are nothing but bulletproof vests to be donned by cowardly terrorists, human missile silos to protect their rockets.

Hamas is a genocidal, terror organization whose murderous charter calls for the annihilation of the Jewish people wherever they may be found.

Some of the charter’s highlights include this humanitarian gem: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

But wait, the charter is just getting started. It continues, “Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts… until the enemy is vanquished and Allah’s victory is realized.”

By vanquished, read, destroyed. The charter is clear that Hamas “strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.” Not much room for Israel.

And it is absolutely genocidal in nature: “The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

The Charter rejects any and all attempts at peace with Israel: “Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement.”

The charter is also deeply militaristic: “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.” Holy war to the death is the only solution: “In face of the Jews’ usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised.”

The charter is also deeply paranoid, buying into a Protocols-of-Zion belief that the Jews control the world and are responsible for  “Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs… for the purpose of achieving the Zionist targets and to deepen the concepts that would serve the enemy.”

The Jews are insatiable: “The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion.”

The Jews want to take over the world and control everything: “Their plan is embodied in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion… For a long time, the enemies have been planning, skillfully and with precision, for the achievement of what they have attained… They strived to amass great and substantive material wealth which they devoted to the realization of their dream. With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others.”

What Jews love most is war, which just allows them to make more money and colonize the world, which is why they started most of the world’s conflicts: “With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the world with the purpose of achieving their interests… They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there… With their money they were able to control imperialistic countries and instigate them to colonize many countries in order to enable them to exploit their resources and spread corruption there… They were behind World War I… They obtained the Balfour Declaration, formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the world.”

Of particular interest is the Charter’s claim that the Jews “were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state.” It seems incredible that Hamas could be so dumb, not to mention monstrously insensitive, to suggest that the Jews were behind their own slaughter in the holocaust. But what does one expect a genocidal terrorists?

And I love this part: “It was they who instigated the replacement of the League of Nations with the United Nations and the Security Council to enable them to rule the world through them.” There is no organization in the world more irrationally hateful of Israel than the United Nations. But the Jews control that too.

The Jews are not just the world’s corrupters, they are also mass murders, out for the extermination of all Islam: “They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion.

And the finale, the Jews are Nazis: “There is no way out except by concentrating all powers and energies to face this Nazi, vicious Tatar invasion.”

With such a vicious, grisly founding document it is no wonder that Hamas is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent Israelis and their rockets seek the extermination of millions of Jews.

But just as the Germans discovered that Hitler was lethal not just to Jews but to Germans, so too Hamas uses thousands of innocent Palestinian children as human shields.

The world has remained silent as Hamas has fired their missiles and hidden their arsenals in schools, playgrounds, hospitals and family homes. And it has proved indifferent to the public call on the part of Hamas leaders for Palestinian children to actively use “their chests and bodies” as protective shields for Hamas rockets.

Hamas has continually squandered the opportunity to build a thriving Palestinian society. Instead, it has only bombs, tunnels, and rockets to show for the billions funneled to them in international aid and the repeated efforts on the part of Israel to negotiate a peaceful resolution.

This is Israel’s third war against Hamas since its 2005 total withdrawal from Gaza, when Israel dismantled its settlements and removed all vestiges of its presence. Should Hamas prevail, millions may die for no other reason than they are Jewish. And untold numbers of Palestinian children will be offered up by the twisted terrorists in the most evil form of modern child sacrifice.

  • I’m of two minds about the vicious Jew-hatred we’re seeing these days. on the one hand, I’m not wild about seeing my people excoriated as world-running baby-killing imperialist dogs. on the other hand, the anti-Israel people are SO over the top that rational, decent people no longer need to listen to them. their rancor gives Israel a license to do what it needs to do and forget about pleasing anyone, because there’s not going to be any pleasing them anyway.

    the best thing I read about the whole situation was a tweet from someone who said, referring to a photo, “It’s awkward when you have to find out whether the dead child is Syrian or Gazan before you can know whether to be morally outraged.” that’s about it.

  • Predictably, although Israel is winning the battles, she is suffering unfair condemnation—not only in Europe, but here in America, especially with the likes of the NY Times and CNN. It was quite refreshing for me to hear Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, in an interview with Erin Burnett, call out CNN’s coverage of the conflict in Gaza as irresponsible and one-sided, citing its coverage of a UN run school wherein 16 children were killed. As Dermer pointed out, CNN failed to mention that there were missiles stored in UN schools and that Israel warned them to vacate! Dermer castigated CNN’s one-sided reporting as a “disservice to its viewers.”

    It’s unbelievable to note that when the UN discovered missiles in their schools—what did they do with them?—they handed them over to Hamas! Hamas, who targets school children with their missiles and terrorist attacks! We don’t know exactly what happened at that school, but it is entirely possible that the missile that hit it was fired by Hamas, landing short of its target as other rockets had.

    It seems that no matter the provocation, Israel is condemned. Hamas launches over 2,000 missiles and Obama and the EU demand restraint! Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman points out that there was not a single condemnation of the killing of 3,000 Palestinians in the Yarmuk refugee camp in Syria. And very little was said about the Christians of Mosul in northern Iraq that were given 24 hours by ISIS to convert, leave, or die. A church dating back 1800 years, before the advent of Islam, was then burned to the ground. The Western media were too busy decrying the “massacre” in Gaza.

    I would suggest to place modern video cameras on each IDF tank and rocket and keep continues surveillance of UN facilities, hospitals, etc. sensitive places using satellites, air support and drones. This could make IDF info about Hamas provocateurs operating at UN facility’s vicinities much more substantial. Cameras are widely used by aircrafts since WWII and their application could be broaden to support truth. E.g., IDF radar’s photos with corresponding interpretation showing that Hamas (rather than IDF) rockets hit hospital and beach camp should be broadcast each hour .

    Another holocaust is possible. If it happened once it can happen again. Thank G-d we have Israel. We need to do everything possible to keep Israel militarily strong. Jews get out of Europe. There can be no compromise regarding Israel nor can we depend on the good will of others. This unfortunately is a lesson that many Jews have never learned. Never forget, never forgive never again.

    • The only things between Israel and another holocaust are your nuclear weapons, that is it!! The Jews in Europe are defenseless against the endless waves of attacks of the intifada. Unfortunately they will be easy Pickens. They need to get out while they still can leave with something. That trap will close so fast and when it does it will be to late!

    • You’re a little off there. It’s israel who is or will be committing the next holocaust. of course, in 50 years, when there is no palestinian land left, you will still shift all the blame to hamas, or whoever “governs” the palestinians then.

      and are you seriously comparing israel and isis or assad? has it come that far?

  • Instead of condemning Israel the western nations should be joining Israel! The west should wake up and see that they will be facing a similar situation in their own countries. Aside from the coming of Moshiach, the only thing that will stop the growth of these terrorists is a war. Not like the one we fought in Iraq, but like the one we fought in WWII. Bloody, vicious, huge numbers of casualties and most of all—decisive. When WWII was over there was no question as to who had won. It is a frightening prospect, but the Arab world may force us into it.

  • How can Israel or any other people or any Nation live together in peace with Hamas, ISIS, al Queda and other Islamic Jihadis who are eager to kill or be killed in their quest.(martyred is what they call it).

    Disregarding this reality, the U.N., the USA, the EU push Israel to try to make “peace”, with these terroristic murderous people.

    They themselves declare openly in their Charter and in everyday pronouncements and actions, that they don’t want peace, just conquest and to murder Jews.

  • It is truly the greatest evil in human history what happened to the left of the world.

    • Many “progressive” leftists are so consumed with hate (for America, for Israel, for Jews, and for their parents who gave them too much, too easily) that they are willfully blind to the dangers that other professional haters pose to their own cute little asses.

    As Berlin Prices Rise, Israelis Turn East for German Real-Estate Bargains

    JNS.org – Sonnenallee, a street in Berlin’s Neukölln district, looks like it comes straight out of an Arab city — so much so that it goes by the nickname “Gaza Strip.” Kebab and bakery shops are advertised in Arabic; men sit in men-only coffee shops; and bridal shop windows showcase glittery, not-so-stylish gowns. But take a random turn, and you’ll find a swath of bars, burger joints, and Indian restaurants where hip Berliners announce that they have arrived to urban coolness. […]

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview.
