Cruising with the devil

For years the neighborhood around Beit Immanuel was known for drug dealers and criminals. I can’t even remember the number of times we were robbed and our property damaged by these trouble-makers. When our kids were small one of these neighbors even set fire to a wooden house next to us endangering our children. That was it. I went ballistic and let him know that that was not going to happen again.
We banned the guy from our property. Unless he makes some kind of a miraculous turn around, we are obviously not going to let him into our home.
Nor should Israel allow these asinine flotilla instigators in. We don’t need to make room for the devil.
A good friend of mine shared this video "The Audacity of Dopes" on YouTube this week. 

I think it’s great that Israelis can look at the funny side of these crazy cruises to the Gaza Strip. But really, this is no laughing matter. Over the weekend Israel deployed close to a thousand policemen as hundreds of international activists flew into Tel-Aviv in protest of Israel’s policies in Gaza.
I have a hard time understanding why so many people support these misguided pranks. Why do so many people identify with Hamas and its radical Islamic agenda?
To me the ideology of Hamas and its Islamic war on Israel is shocking. Maybe it is so shocking that people refuse to believe it is true? Hamas has been training and sending suicide bombers to kill innocent people since 1987. They call them martyrs. How do we comprehend a movement that sends its young people to blow themselves up in order to kill innocent people?
Al-Fateh ("the conqueror") is the Hamas children's magazine, published biweekly in London, and also posted in its website. It began publication in September 2002, and its 108th issue was released in mid-September 2007. The magazine features stories, poems, riddles, and puzzles, and states it is for "the young builders of the future."
The magazine includes incitement to jihad and martyrdom and glorification of terrorist operations and of their planners and perpetrators as well as characterizations of Jews as "murderers of the prophets" and laudatory descriptions of parents who encourage their sons to kill Jews. In each issue, a regular feature titled "The Story of a Martyr" presents the "heroic deeds" of a mujahidin from one of the organizations who died in a suicide operation, including operations against civilians, or who was killed by the IDF. The magazine includes illustrations of figures, including child warriors, who embody the ethos of jihad and martyrdom, presenting them as role models. These include the magazine's titular character, Al-Fateh ("The Conqueror") - a small boy on a horse brandishing a drawn scimitar - as well as children carrying guns, and photos of Hamas fighters launching Qassam rockets aimed at Israeli civilians including children.
As far as I can tell, the kind of fundamental Islam followed by Hamas is the only religion known to mankind that finds honor in killing innocent people. Most of the world’s religions teach kindness, love and respect for humanity.  Faith in God helps people find ways of making the world a better place to live. Most religious people try to teach their off-spring how to overcome suffering or loss. Noreligion I am aware of teaches their children to sacrifice themselves in order to take vengeance on innocent people. Only radical Islam. 
I hear some people say, “We don’t understand the grievances of Hamas. If we would listen to them and make life better for them there would be less terror in the world.”
Are these terrorists the only ones with grievances? In the last century alone, we have endured two world wars, civil wars, Hiroshima, massacres, pogroms and a holocaust. Is there any other religion in the world that teaches its people to continue taking revenge by killing innocent people?  Did you ever see a survivor of the holocaust or of Hiroshima blow up a hospital, a school or a hotel? Are they shooting missiles into populated towns? Do they not also have grievances?
There is no grievance, suffering or pain that can justify killing innocent people. None. Never.
Western civilization cannot afford not to confront this devious justification of murder propagated by Hamas. The values of an entire generation have become so white-washed that we are  blinded to this clear manifestation of evil. Those who are trying to go to Gaza to identify with this ideology are themselves responsible for promoting terror.
They are encouraging a philosophy that is at war with the basic principles of human civilization and in absolute contradiction to all that is dear to the sanctity of life held by all peoples of the world. There is no logic or purpose that makes sense of it. It is a kill, kill philosophy. Nobody wins. With such an ideology there can be no other response than shock and resistance. Those who support them are also responsible for their deeds.
This ideology did not die with Bin Laden. There are thousands of nameless Islamic religious leaders in Gaza and around the world that continue to teach the same ideas that sent his 9/11 shaheeds (martyr in Arabic) to destruction. Week after week we hear about the hundreds and thousands murdered, mutilated and maimed in the name this perverse ideology.
Islamic jihad is an ideology, and ideas cannot be fought with guns alone. As the war in Iraq, as well Israel’s fifty-year long battle with Palestinian terror have shown, this ideology cannot be beaten by force alone.
That is why we must resist these perverse flotillas. Unconditionally, and without a shadow of doubt, we must stand with Israel’s sovereign right to prevent these ramble-rousers from entering her sovereign territory. Islamic jihad against Israel has many faces – none of them are acceptable.

    Some of us in Montreal are also fed up with this insanity. We have established a branch of the U.S. activist group "Act! For America" run by Brigitte Gabriel. We are "Act! For Canada"; visit our website, you might be interested in speaking at one of our lectures. We have members that are Jewish and Christian, English and French. We see what's going on and are trying to put a harness on these islamists and leftists with their perverse sense of reality.

    Brother David,
    Evil deception abounds throughout the earth.
    While the insanity continues to exist,we have our own form right here in the USA.
    From a recent article..."The US president appears to have embarked on a deliberate strategy to embrace radical Islam by partnering with Islamic organizations calling for the demise of the United States, and by assigning Islamists to key strategic positions that oversee the security of the nation, aspects of the judiciary, and as intimate aides to high level administration appointees. The Administration's public position is that these relationships are in the best interest of the United States in promoting tolerance in America and democracy in the Middle East. In reality, they raise poignant and unthinkable questions as to whether this president has violated his oath of office and several U.S. laws by facilitating an Islamic takeover of America.
    One need look no further than the Administration's embracing of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and high level appointments of Muslims who are directly associated with the MB or have ties to organizations associated with the MB. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aid since 1996 is Huma Abedin."
