The Duplicitious-Facade of Hamas
There is a disconcertingly-growing consensus among proponents of an independent Palestine, that the sinister behaviour of the fundamentalist organisation Hamas is essentially tantamount to those of “freedom-fighters”, who are pertinaciously resisting Israeli bombardments and magnanimously safeguarding the lives and property of its beleaguered civilians.
This preposterous contention is predominantly prevalent among prepubescent champagne-socialists, sanctimonious university-students, or otherwise delusional fuckwits.
Conversely, Hamas has principally demonstrated a reckless disregard for the well-being of Gazan citizens by deploying rockets from densely-populated vicinities (knowing full-well that the anticipated Israeli retaliation would culminate in a enormous amount of fatalities); exploiting and disseminating the subsequent casualties through their extremely pervasive propaganda campaign; and most intriguingly – administrating their territory in a manner reminiscent of the Taliban’s governance over Afghanistan – in accordance with theocratic jurisprudence derived from puritanical interpretations of Islamic scripture.
So much for being "freedom-fighters"...
Their clandestine political posturing and concerted attempts to present themselves as a legitimate, democratically-elected government barely conceal the ulterior motives of the organisation, which incorporate: the genocidal decimation – expressed through their ideological charter - of the ethnoreligious Jewish demographics (irrespective of what their perspective is on the conflict) and the subjugation of its population through overbearing, authoritarian, and theocratic leadership.
Occasionally, we in the West get a glimpse of Hamas’ unadulterated, pernicious convictions (and predominantly choose to ignore them), such as their rebarbative and vituperative anti-Semitic pronouncements; their jubilant celebrations of the September-11th attacks; their prolonged cordial relationships with disreputable entities such as al-Qaeda; and vociferous glorification of terrorism as a whole – notwithstanding their persistently coordinated terrorist activities on Israeli soil, which are illustrative of “resistance” and “frustration” caused by the “occupation"/ "apartheid”, of-course.
It is absolutely imperative that Hamas’ perfidious temperament and deceptive political-posturing should be exposed. While simultaneously offering a superficial condemnation of terrorism under international scrutiny, they clandestinely execute terrorist attacks on Israeli soil and exhort indiscriminate violence against innocent Israeli citizens.
Consequently, it is my profoundly-held conviction that a Palestinian autonomous government should never be perceived as legitimate, particularly whilst under the Hamas’ administration. Recognising or acknowledging Palestinian independence is tantamount to making concessions to a terrorist-organisation.
Recently, aspects of one of their periodical publications seemingly purport to glorify the perpetrators of the diabolical atrocities - that Islamofascist terrorists undertook in France.
