An Arab View…

This hostility is the direct result of years of anti-Israel and anti-Western incitement in the Arab and Muslim world — not only toward Israel but also toward the United States. In today’s world of the Palestinians, anyone who talks about peace with Israel is a traitor and a collaborator; but anyone who calls for the destruction of Israel and fires rockets at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is a hero.

There is nothing more nauseating than watching people celebrate as rockets are being fired toward Israel from the Gaza Strip.

This is what happened last week when Hamas fired rockets at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

As soon as the sirens went off, many Palestinians took to the streets and rooftops, especially in Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods, to cheer Hamas. Sometimes they responded to the Hamas rockets by launching fireworks into the air as a sign of joy, and chanting, “We are all Hamas!” and, “O Jews, the army of Mohammed is coming after you!”

Scenes of jubilation over the rocket attacks on Israel were also reported in several Palestinian cities in the West Bank, including Ramallah, the center of Palestinian “pragmatism and moderation.”

Later, upon learning that Hamas’s rockets had failed to kill Israelis in the two cities, the Palestinians voiced disappointment.

Never mind that the rockets could have fallen on their heads. As far as these Palestinians are concerned, there is no problem if a number of Arabs are killed on the way to destroying Israel.

The celebrations reflect the strong hostility that many Palestinians continue to feel toward Israel despite 20 years of a peace process, and billions of dollars of Western aid. This hostility is the direct result of years of anti-Israel and anti-Western incitement in the Arab and Islamic world.

The hostility is directed not only toward Israel, but also its friends — above all, the United States.

    Wisconsin has 600,000 licensed deer hunter. That would rank as the 8th largest army in the world. I can only imagine where Texas would rank. SO I say to the Arabs, Come get some bitch.

    But, but, but…I thought that 0bamessiah was the great reconciliator? Didn’t he bring the world together? I’ll swear I saw that reported as a fact on MSNBC.

    It’s damn near impossible to make peace with a group of people who believe their “allah” commands them to eradicate your entire Jewish race from the face of the earth.

    The following is from the “Hamas Charter” article 7:

    http://www.islam-watch.org/Others/Hamas-Charter-Covenant-of-Hamas.htm

    But even if the links have become distant from each other, and even if the obstacles erected by those who revolve in the Zionist orbit, aiming at obstructing the road before the Jihad fighters, have rendered the pursuance of Jihad impossible; nevertheless, the Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said:
    The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim).

    This idiotic savagery is precisely why I cannot drum up ANY sympathy for any of the so called “civilian” casulties in the Gaza Strip. Let them seek the 72 virgins to their hearts’ content. (What is it that the women get – to be sex slaves through enternity?) Our eldest son remarked that it’s cruel but – most of the chidren will grow up to be jihadis anyway. He’s right!
