    Thumbs down Hamas revisited

    The following is a news article that appeared in yesterday's MTL Gazette:

    HAMAS REJECTS AL-QA'IDA

    Cairo- Officials of the Palestinian militant group Hamas yesterday shrugged off the support offered the day before by Al-Qa'ida's No. 2 leader in a video broadcast , saying their group has a different ideology than the terror network and won the parliementary elections through its moderate approach to Islam.

    In a video aired Saturday by al-Jazeera television, Ayman al-Zawahri called for jihad, or holy war, to reclaim Palestinian lands and implied Al-Qa'ida's support for Hamas's refusal to recognize Israel despite international pressure since the militant Islamic group swept the parliementary elections in January.

    Hamas is setting up a new palestinian cabinet after defeating Fatah, which had ruled Plalestinian politics for four decades. Hamas does not accept the presence of the Jewish state in the Middle East and has sent dozens of suicide bombers into Israel.

    Al-Zawahri complained in the videotape that the previous Palestinian leaderships ''sold Palestine'' through peace agreements in oslo and Madrid and the US-backed ''road map'' peace plan.

    ''This is a dangerous deal which should be dropped immediately,'' he said.

    Hamas will discover that there is a vast difference between being a terrorist group and running a country. This may actually turn out to have better results than most realize as Hamas as it has been known will probably cease to exist. As a terrorist organization it had to answer to no one. Now as a ruling government it has to answer to the world for it's actions. Besides if they openly made an alliance of any kind with al-qa'ida I don't think they would enjoy the response from the US.

    In the first Palestinian parliementary session yesterday, all hell suddenly broke loose when Hamas decided to declare void all the Bills Fatah had passed between the time Hamas won the elections and their swearing in. Don't think these guys are mere novices who don't know what they're doing!

    I don't think they're novices, nor do I question the legitimacy of their democratically-elected victory.

    But I do think that in order for the international community to recognize them, they need to acknowledge their past actions and renounce the methods of terrorism.

    If you think Hamas can be tamed, think again.

    Thumbs up Islam , a religion of love?

    article in today's gazette

    CHRISTIAN CONVERT FACES DEALTH PENALTY

    Kabul- An Afghan man said to have converted from Islam to Christianity is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death , a judge said yesterday.
    The defendant, Abdul Rahman, was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of becoming Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada said. Such a conversion would violate the country's Islamic laws.
    Rahman, who is believed to be 41, was charged with rejecting Islam when his trial started last week, the judge said.
    During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 tyears ago when he was 25 and working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighbouring Pakistan, Mawlevezada said.
    Afghanistan's constitution is based on sharia law, which satates that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death.
    The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, is asking for the death penalty, the judge said.
    Wasi said he had offered to drop the charges if Rahman changed his religion back to Islam, but the defendant refused.

    Hamas Is Incompetent

    Here is some early evidence of the complete incompetence of the Hamas regime:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060405/...l_palestinians

    Hamas basically said "fuck you, we don't need your money!" to the U.S., Canada, and the rest of the west, not to mention Israel. But guess what? They are now finding out that without the withheld foreign aid, they are financially crippled. Watch the "Death to Israel" rhetoric change now that the reality of economic disaster and starvation are about to set in.

    Extremist sucks not matter what religion they are

    I know that not all Muslim are bad or evil just a few apples that create a terrible image for the world. The same hold truth for the Christian. It is a classical tales of "if I can't convert you, I'll over populate you". Most Muslim extremist believe that the world will convert either through the Koran or the gun. I hope Hamas screws up this will give Isareal a reason to open that can of whoop ass and maybe this time they will take all the land. Palestine for some some reason don't believe in the old proverbs " you get more bees with honey". They wage a war that they can not win. Instead of stepping up and be nice to win the sympathy of the world, they are extremist fanatics that turns the world agaisnt them. All they have to do is comply with the international communities and maybe a few country will put some pressures on Isareal and they will get what they want. But when you cry and shout like a 10 years old child you will be treat like so. It is hypocritical for the Middle East world to decry the treatment of the Palestine and here is the prime opportunity to help out a fellow Muslim country and no one show up. Extremist will have the world attention but Hamas, unless they play by the rules, will be nothing more than a hindered for the Palestinian people. I understand that the Palestine wants a change to better their lives, and thus the reason for voting in Hamas. But running a government is much more difficult than running a militant organization.
    Last but not least I applaud Canada for their decisions and I wish more countries will follow their leads.
