While most have certainly heard of the Palestinian political organization Hamas, few have heard of some of the "brilliant" thinking and downright funny wisdom coming out this organization. Here are just a few of their many choice gems:
In 2003, Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi published an absurd article in the Hamas-run Al-Risala that claimed that the Holocaust did not exist and praised some of the worst of Holocaust deniers such as David Irving and claimed that the gas chambers were only a "myth".
In 2005, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal praised radical Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his "courageous" denial of the Holocaust. Hamas incidentally receives massive funding from Iran's Islamic revolutionary government.
Al Fateh, the Hamas run children's website and Hamas run children's TV programming routinely praises suicide bombings and death for God when it isn't preaching anti semitic hate against Jews. Bozo the clown this isn't.
Article 22 of Hamas charter falsely claims that Jews were responsible for causing WWI and WII. And further falsely claims that in every war around the world, Jews somehow are involved with their "finger" in it.
Article 7 of the Hamas Charter claims:"The day of judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews(killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind trees and stones. The trees and stones will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree,(the cedar tree)would not do because it is the tree of the Jews".
Hamas leader Mahmud al-Zahar offered this gem about Homosexuals:"Are these the laws for which the Palestinian street is waiting? For us to give rights to homosexuals and lesbians, a minority of perverts and the mentally and morally sick?". Hey, didn't those "Yes On Proposition 8" guys say something similar?
Hamas Sheikh Muhammed Abu Ter, the candidate for the second highest office in Palestinian parliament blamed coeducation for the high suicide rates in Western nations like Sweden during a campaign speech. Who knew that boys and girls going to school together could result in death?
Palestinian voters were threatened into voting for Hamas by being told that, "If you don't vote Hamas. God will punish you". Darn it, if only Sarah Palin would have only thought to say that, then maybe she'd be vice president now.
Hamas not only promises to destroy Israel, but plans on the eventual destruction of the West itself and threatens, "We say to this West, which does not act reasonably, and does not learn it's lessons: By Allah you will be defeated...", as stated during a typical Mosque sermon given by a top Hamas cleric.
Dr. Mahmud al-Zahar praised female suicide bomber Re'em Al Riyashi, and praised using such suicide bombings not only to rule over all of Palestine but the entire "universe" as well.
Hamas makes their feelings about Israel fairly clear when they state that, "Israel is not a legitimate entity, and no amount of pressure can force us to recognize it's right to exist".
Funny guys with a great sense of humor those Hamas guys, huh? Maybe they should write comedy material for SNL? They might like to suicide bomb a little, but Hell, they're alright?
