Okay, okay. anyone who’s been paying attention has known for years that Hamas is an enemy of America: a Salafist, jihadist organization dedicated to our ally Israel’s destruction and the genocide of her Jews, they’re also the spawn of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is waging a “civilizational jihad” against America and the West. You don’t have to be a great analyst to deduce that Hamas is not likely to be friendly to the US and is indeed probably an enemy.
But it is considerate of them to make it plain for all to see:
The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas on Monday condemned the killing by U.S. forces of Osama bin Laden and mourned him as an “Arab holy warrior.”
“We regard this as a continuation of the American policy based on oppression and the shedding of Muslim and Arab blood,” Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip, told reporters.
Though he noted doctrinal differences between bin Laden’s al-Qaida and Hamas, Haniyeh said: “We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior. We ask God to offer him mercy with the true believers and the martyrs.”
So, eulogizing the guy responsible for the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans and foreign guests and untold thousands of Muslims in Iraq and elsewhere. Nice.
To invert an old saying:
The friend of my enemy is my enemy.
I wonder if Seal Team 6 is busy right now… .
