The article looks at the recent Hamas victory in the PA.
Hamas just won big in "Palestine," capturing an outright majority in the Palestinian Legislative Council election (about 58%), backing up over five years of opinion surveys, that "Palestinians" like their suicide bombers toasted, or put another way, they like killing Jews.

Yet by contrast, in March 1933, Hitler's National Socialist German Workers Party only won a plurality of the vote with 43.9% and needed a small right-wing nationalist party, the German National People's Party to form a coalition government with a slim 51.8% parliamentary majority.

More Arabs in "Palestine" voted for Hamas than Germans for the Nazis.

Think back to 1942, somewhere in Eastern Europe. The rumbling of trucks, jeeps and the shouts of frenzied soldiers has just rudely awakened some small sleepy village. Jews are roused from their beds and at gunpoint forced to march to the edge of town. First a few, five, ten, then more are hurriedly rush to the trucks, Einzatzgrupen, the murder trucks. Three, four, seven people are stuffed into the back of the truck. The pipe from the exhaust is connected to an opening in the door. Jews, mothers, fathers, children start to scream and gasp for air. The soldier driving the truck presses down on the gas pedal while in neutral, the engine screams as the fumes make their deadly way into the closed back compartment filled with innocent people condemned to death, simply for being Jewish. Ten minutes, twenty, soon its over. The soldiers open the back of the truck and order some of the remaining Jews, shivering in the cold, to collect the bodies and bring them to the large truck nearby.

Twenty-three are killed that morning, 23 holy souls extinguished like a candle blown out by a chilling winter blast.

Now, lend me your attention just a moment longer. It's now 2002, somewhere in Israel, an average afternoon, or maybe just after Shabbat. People are walking around town, some doing shopping, some meeting friends. Jews, out in their cities, just as anyone else in the world could be. Without warning, BBBOOOOMMM!!! People hear the blast from blocks away. Eyewitnesses from across the street describe seeing body parts flying in the air. People with bloodied faces, arms and backs crying out for help. Ringing, ringing, ringing in the ears of those many meters away. Those are the lucky ones, the ones who survived this attack. Soon it's heard on the news, 23 were killed and 67 injured. Later, it's reported that there is rejoicing and parties in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Jenin, Tul-Karem, and across the Gaza Strip. This was the fourth attack in as many days. The day before, a bus blew up on the highway killing 11 and injuring 19, before that, a disco with 6 teenagers murdered and 47 deliberately injured. Suicide Bombers, Homicide Bombers, Genocide Bombers, whatever you call them, the result is the same, innocent people condemned to death, simply for being Jewish.

23 holy souls extinguished like a candle blown out by a chilling winter blast.

Nazis killed Jews during the Holocaust. They murdered them simply for being Jews, and they rejoiced in their barbarity. They attempted Genocide, that is, they hoped to kill all the Jews in Europe. 60 years later, Arabs in Israel are doing exactly the same thing, with exactly the same goal in mind. In fact, according to Khalil Shikaki, the director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, opinion polls show that "Palestinians" have overwhelmingly supported bombings in Israel over the last several years (from about 50-80%, recently down to the high-30's due to weariness from Israel's anti-terror campaign).

If you think that these are just extremist elements in Palestinian society, think again. According to a May 2003 Pew Global Attitudes Project opinion poll, 80% of Palestinians agreed with the statement: "The rights and needs of the Palestinian people cannot be taken care of as long as the State of Israel exists." They clearly want to destroy the Jewish state.

Unmistakably, the Palestinian Authority elections prove what survey research has been telling us for quite a while, the "Palestinians" want to kill Jews. It's not just a few extremists, but a solid majority of the Arabs of Judea, Samaria (the West Bank) and Gaza. In fact many more Arabs today than Germans (of the 1930's) support the wholesale murder of Jews.

And the "Palestinians" know what Hamas wants, Hamas's charter calls for the destruction of Israel.

Immediately after the election victory, the current Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyeh, promised to "complete the liberation of other parts of Palestine." He did not specify which territories he was referring to or how he would go about it.

Syrian-based Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal told a news conference in Damascus after the election victory, that they are ready to merge all the armed terrorist factions into a "Palestinian" army. "We are willing to form an army like every army to defend our people against aggression." The Hamas leader reasserted that Hamas would not disarm. Mashaal said that attacks on Israeli civilians would continue, "Resistance is a legitimate right that we will practice and protect. Our presence in the legislature will strengthen the resistance." Nevertheless, Mashaal insisted, "We are realistic and we know things are done gradually...Being against the occupation does not mean that I can eliminate Israel in mere seconds."

Mashaal lashed out at those who have criticized Hamas' victory. "The world should respect the results of democracy," Mashaal said. If you want to punish the Palestinian people for practicing democracy then the Americans should be punished for choosing President Bush."

Clearly, Mashaal understands that Hamas terrorism against Israel represents the will of the "Palestinian people".

Nothing has changed, since the former Hamas leader, Abdel Aziz Rantisi said, "We will continue with our holy war and resistance until every last criminal Zionist is evicted from this land. By G-D we will not leave one Jew alive in Palestine. We will fight them with all the strength we have. This is our land, not the Jews."

Rantisi, then speaking at his first public appearance after the end of a three-day official mourning period for Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, said, "Bush is an enemy of God, an enemy of Islam, an enemy of Muslims. America has announced a war against Allah, Sharon has announced a war against Allah. Allah announces a war against America, Bush and Sharon."

Some in the West, might have forgotten the former Hamas "spiritual leader" Yassin, but "Palestinians" remember. Yassin, who in the weeks and months before Israel's assassination of him in March 2004, had increasingly begun speaking publicly about the "Global Jihad" in Bin Laden and al-Qaeda type terms. This wasn't new to Yassin, who back in February 2002 (before the war in Iraq) called on the international Islamic community to combat "American influence" on their countries via "Jihad".

Rantisi following in Yassin's footsteps, before his own assassination by Israel, said, "The war of God goes on against them and I see the beginning of victory starting from here in Palestine in the hands of the Izzedin al-Kassam Brigades (Hamas's military wing) and the Hamas movement."

So, Hamas isn't just after Jews, but sees itself as part of the Global Jihad Network too.

Under pressure from the success of Israel's Targeted Killing Program, and with their recent PA election campaign, Hamas has been less outspoken recently, but just as active in killing Jews and others.

Hitler and the Nazi propaganda machine used the "big lie", they found out people would just as easily accept outrageous untruths as small ones. These lessons well learned by Palestinian leaders and their fellow travelers in Europe and America, are being foisted on the world as a smokescreen to cover up their own evil intentions. While innocent Jews are being mercilessly murdered and maimed in Israel, Jews around the world, including in the United States are being simultaneously called "Nazis" and told "Hitler should have finished the job." Islamic-led, pro-Palestinian Anti-Semitism is sweeping the globe.

The explosion of Judeo-pathic hatred and Anti-Semitic behavior on American college campuses, formerly, bastions of liberalism and tolerance, is appalling. But much worse than simply intolerant behavior, are the identification with and the promotion of true Nazism, the Palestinian cause. It's sad to see the so-called cream of America, its educated elite, descending into the fires of hell. The Palestinians, well what can you say for them, they idolized Sheikh Haj Al-Husseini in the 1930's and 1940's. A leader who spent the war years with Hitler, helping organize Muslim SS troops in Bosnia and elsewhere. Al-Husseini helped Hitler plan "The Final Solution" for Jews living in Mandatory Palestine.

There's a direct line from Al-Husseini in the 1930's, through Arafat in the 70's, 80's and 90's, to Hamas today.

For a long time now we've been hearing the mind-numbing mantra of the left, "There is no military solution to the conflict," with it's - let's throw our hands up and surrender already - corollary, "There is only a political solution." But one must understand, there can only be a political solution to a conflict, if the parties involved want to accept a political solution. If one side insists on total and absolute victory, even to the point of exterminating its enemy, and the other side pursues a political solution, then you have a proscription for disaster in the making.

You can throw water on a normal fire to put it out, but throw water on an electrical fire and all you do is spread the area of danger. Not only is there danger from the fire, but now from electrocution as well. Such one-sided behavior on the part of Israeli leaders, attempting to achieve "peace" with a society that wants to exterminate it, has spread the danger, as well.

There are prognosticators in Israel already trying to wiggle out of reality, telling Israelis that maybe Hamas will become pragmatic, maybe Israel will be able to negotiate with them in the end. There were Jewish leaders in Europe before the Holocaust downplaying the dangers of Hitler and the Nazis, too.

Then, there are the Olmert types, who are saying that that since Israel won't be able to negotiate with a Hamas-led PA, continuing the unilateral expulsion of Jews from Judea and Samaria serves Israel's security needs and will preserve Israel as a Democratic and Jewish state. And, there has already been talk of the Israeli government continuing to remit customs taxes to the Palestinian Authority, in effect, financing Hamas' terrorist activities.

But as far as I can tell, ethnic cleansing of Jews from parts of their ancient homeland negates democracy in Israel, the Jewish character of its state, and helps Hamas achieve its goal. It rewards Hamas' campaign of terror and war. Financing terrorism during the "War on Terror" smacks of international crime. Add to that, those willing to negotiate with Hamas and you end up with a lot of politicians running in the upcoming Israeli elections, who are supporting a terrorist group, Hamas, worse than the Nazis.

How ironic, when Israel and the world just observed the first UN-sponsored International Holocaust Memorial Day; the day after "Palestine" became Hamastan, a terror regime bent on Israel's destruction.

Zionist crusaders hate Palestinians resisting the Zionist's offensive war of conquest just like the nazis didn't like Jews of the warsaw ghetto tossing molotov cocktails at them. Oooh, ZIonists don't like the hostilities thier bloodsoaked war of conquest created. What a shame? ZIonists murdered more Palestinians last week (2 both children) than Hamas did in the last year. Oh, but because you describe so well how the ZIonists "suffer' from the hostilities created by thier own war of conquest, you think that magicaly changes the Zionists from murderous thieves to innocent victims of thier own CHOSEN war of conquest. Man, you really are pathetic and delusional if you think scpaegoating palestinians still works after the internet has destroyed the monopoly major media once held over the ignorant masses.

It isn't the Palestinian's fault that the murerous thieves occupying Palestinian lands also happen to be Jews. Just how pathetic would you have to be to believe it is the Palestinian's fault that the people destroying thier lives are Jews.

After the English and ZIonists declared war on Palestine with the balfour declaration, and ZIonists started thier invasion under Brittish guns like Hungarians invaded Slovakia under Nazi guns, there WERE a few occupied Palestinians who escaped thier occupied homeland and joined with the people fighting against the English people occupying palestine and aiding the ZIonist invasion of Palestine.

Yep, and how does a handfull of occupied people joining thier enemy's enemies give ZIonists a birthright of murderous theft of palestinian lands? I don't see it, while obviously you do or are just scapegoating the palestinian victims of both Englaish occupiers and Zionist invadors.

You sure post vile crap.

After nazis occupied Czechoslovakia and aided the hungarian invasion of the Slovakian portion, there were a few Slavakians joining the allied fight against Nazis and Hungarians. Wouldn't that make those few Slovakians comparable to Palestinians joining up with thier enemy's ememies after England occupied palestine and aided the Zionist invasion of palestine?

Germans walking around thier own towns in thier own homeland (not in occupied lands as ALL Zionist towns are) like people around the world do (((while at the same time, other Germans are being murderous thieves of more and more of thier neighbor's lands like ZIonists have done and are still doing even as you read these words))) and without warning (((other than the fact that they know, as do ZIonists, that they are in a war they started))), BBBOOOOMMM!!! RAFand US army air corps bombers blast them into pieces flying through the air.

I can see how hamas are at least as bad as RAF and US army air corps bomber crews were. Should hamas get medals too??? And money for college??? And the respect of all Americans???

You could write about how horrible it was for whole wagon trains of white invadors of native American lands to be scalped. You could write very descriptivly about the brutality of the scalpings. But the brutality of scalping doesn't change the dynamics of that conflict. We all know who were the offending party and who (a tiny fraction anyway) were responding to the extream duress of the invador's war of conquest by fighting back.

And like Zionists and thier enablers have thier public relations, the white invadors of north America used the brutality of the scalpings carried out by a tiny fraction of the native American population as an excuse for even more spirited efforts in the murderous theft of native American lands. Custer wiping out whole villages was just 1 chapter in the onslaught.

Zionists endanger and sacrifice thier own children in thier own war of conquest, and then use the corpses as public relations tools. Zionist ghouls, parading the children they sacrificed to villify thier chosen victims and solicite support of the Zionist crusade is only one the disgusting tactics Zionists employ in thier murderous theft of Palestinian lands. It had worked well enough when mass media monopolized public "understanding" of the offense of Zionism. But now that the internet has destroyed that monopoly, the Zionist's just come out looking as bad as they should have been seen all along.

How is it that the TV set god had us all so decieved? Only being allowed a single view of the world doesn't excuse us from accepting the vile lies into our hearts. Our own tribalistic prejudices must have been a major factor because the Zionist propaganda is too offensive and vacant to stand on its own legs. Oh, Zionist crusaders are democratic, like us. zionist crusaders vote with the US at the UN. Zionist crusaders are OUR friends and allies. Damn, any man can love his own brother. It wouldn't mean helping your own brother in murderous theft is anything other than an offense. I am not going to blaim the brainwashing of wolves in sheep's clothing. I am going to blaim myself for exalting my own tribalistic prejudices above treating my Palestinian neighbors as I would have them treat me, because I wouldn't have fallen for the Zionist lies if I were not really serving my own self intrests.

We failed. And we failed big time. I am sorry for once supporting the Zionist's bloodsoaked crusade. I am sorry for failing to be a good person out of my own self serving tribalistic prejudices. And I feel bad about all those who continue to let thier own self serving tribalistic prejudices lead them into the lake of fire. Repentance is still an option. You too can be a part of the true alliyah, but time is running out.

In fact the scalping was encouraged by Europeans (French and British) as a way for the mercenaries of the time to prove their kills and get their bounty.
