In which Hamas openly declares itself an enemy of the United States

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… .

    Just as some birthers will never be appeased by anything Obama does, so too some jihadists will never be appeased by anything we do. I don’t doubt the sincerity of the administration’s attempt to give Laden a sharia-compliant funeral, and I defer to its judgment that doing so was a good idea, but I hope no one thought that it would make much difference.

    Now, ask me if I care. This is the hypocritical language the Islamic thugs indulge in by saying we violated their laws by the way the murdering SOB was disposed of. We have laws, too. Laws against premeditated murder, air piracy, arson, genocide, weapons possession, etc. And then there’s 9/11.

    The sad thing is that no matter how PLAIN they make their stand on hatred, there are folks in this country (and around the world) who still don’t understand and refuse to see that the goal of this group is something we need to deal with by protecting Israel and those who support Israel.

  4. Carlos says:

    It’s just like the “civil discourse” meme, Kate. It’s simply, “We have different rules for ourselves than we do for you, so every time you’re wrong, and every time we’re right.”

    What’s confusing about that?

    Except to a marxist or innumerable Hollyweird weirdos, or the arrogancia elite?

    If America does not gather in Washington and demand aid to Hamas to stop,the great O will not do it. He only moves when he thinks the election is in trouble
