|Islam: Religion of peace.|| 3:139-141 So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers. If a wound (and killing) has touched you, be sure a similar wound (and killing) has touched the others. And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allâh may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allâh likes not the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers). And that Allâh may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers.

Primary rules for intellectuals:
- ignore facts
- ignore common sense.
If thats your definition of intellectual it explains why you are wedded to violence and opposed to any efforts for peace.
Typical straw man argument, employing an element of projection. It is Islam that embraces and sanctifies violence.Peace is obtained by victory and maintained by superior strength and vigilance. The alternative is death, subjugation and slavery.
Fact: the Qur’an contains clear verses whose meaning is self-evident.
- 3:7 …In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkâm (commandments, etc.)…
- 27:1 a Book (that makes things) clear
- 43:2 By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Qur’ân).
- Tafsir Ibn Kathir: The Mutashabihat and Muhkamat Ayat: Allah states that in the Qur’an, there are Ayat that are Muhkamat, entirely clear and plain, and these are the foundations of the Book which are plain for everyone.…(They are the foundations of the Book), meaning, they are the basis of the Qur’an, and should be referred to for clarification, when warranted,…The Muhkamat are the Ayat that explain the abrogating rulings, the allowed, prohibited, laws, limits, obligations and rulings that should be believed in and implemented…. [Emphasis added.]
In the Qur’an, Muhammad quotes Allah directly: “In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book”. In his explanation of the Qur’an, directly referring to the same verse, the most accepted Qur’an scholar verifies that fact. But Monty & Alex, being self appointed intellectuals, know better than Allah. They know better than an expert who spent his entire lifetime studying Islam’s canon scripture.
They can not accept the fact that 9:29 contains a clear imperative to fight and kill “people of the scriptures” who do not submit to Islam. They can not accept that the command is within a fight until loop, with neither chronological nor geographical limitations.
The clear imperative to fight and kill Jews and Christians is confirmed by direct statements from Muhammad and the agents of his successor:
- Bukhari1.8.387: “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.“
- Bukhari9.92.388: I have been ordered to fight the people till they say ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’ And whoever says: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ waves his wealth and his life from me unless he deserves a legal punishment lusty, and his account will be with Allah!
- Abu Dawud14.2635: I am commanded to fight with men till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Apostle, face our qiblah (direction of prayer), eat what we slaughter, and pray like us. When they do that, their life and property are unlawful for us except what is due to them.
- Bukhari4.52.196: I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)”
- Bukhari4.53.386: …Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”…
We have two fight until loops contained in 8:39 & 9:29 respectively, which are verified and confirmed by five hadith. What does the most widely accepted Qur’an scholar say about them?
- The Order to fight until there is no more Fitnah: Allah then commanded fighting the disbelievers when He said:
(…until there is no more Fitnah) meaning, Shirk. This is the opinion of Ibn `Abbas, Abu Al-`Aliyah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ar-Rabi`, Muqatil bin Hayyan, As-Suddi and Zayd bin Aslam. Allah’s statement: (…and the religion (all and every kind of worship) is for Allah (Alone).) means, `So that the religion of Allah becomes dominant above all other religions.’
- The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah : Allah said, (Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the People of the Scripture, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.)… Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination….
We have the direct statements of Allah, quoted by Muhammad in 8:39 & 9:29. We have five hadith which confirm those statements. We have the same texts quoted and confirmed by Ibn Kathir. Alex, John & Monty have:
- intellectual superiority
- moral superioity
- smug certitude
- no facts
- no logic
- no reasoning
- a priori they are right, all opponents are wrong and all evidence is irrelevant.

DUBAI – A man described as a leader of al Qaeda’s wing in Egypt is calling for attacks in support of Hamas on Israeli and Western targets in the Arab world’s most populous country.
“Oh, heroes, strike . . . all the Zionist crusader targets in the land of Egypt without shedding the blood of Muslims,” Mohamed Hakaima wrote in an Internet posting.
But Kamal Habib, a former Islamist now an expert on such groups, doubts that “al Qaeda has a presence in Egypt in the organizational sense, [though] some people there may believe in [its] ideas.”
|Islam: Religion of peace.||3:125-127 “Yes, if you hold on to patience and piety, and the enemy comes rushing at you; your Lord will help you with five thousand angels having marks (of distinction).” Allâh made it not but as a message of good news for you and as an assurance to your hearts. And , the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. That He might cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or expose them to infamy, so that they retire frustrated. Tafsir: 125 126 -129|
Fox News presents:

Repeats Sunday, June 24 at 3 a.m. ET
Hosted by E.D. Hill
Tune in this weekend, as FOX News Channel presents the documentary the Public Broadcasting System didn’t want you to see.
It’s a film about the difference between moderate Muslims and the radicals who want to kill us. It asks where are the moderate Muslims and why aren’t they speaking out against the jihadists? And it was financed with $675,000 of taxpayers’ money.
It was commissioned as part of the PBS series “America at the Crossroads” about the post 9/11 world, but PBS executives rejected it.
PBS claims the filmmakers were “alarmist, overreaching and unfair.”
The filmmakers say they were censored because of liberal bias at PBS.
On a topic this important, we think you have the right to decide for yourself.
So what will anyone do about it? Will we help the “apostates”? Are they worthy? And what will the “apostates” do with the “kill the infidel” portions of the Koran? Can entire sections of their Holy Book be denied and if so, is their Holy Book still Holy?
Astute Blogger has it blogged:
An America at a Crossroads film about the war within the Muslim world, how moderate Muslims are voicing their objections to the teachings of radical Islam, and how they are being persecuted for doing so in Europe, North America and Africa, demonstrating Islamist persecution of moderate Muslims is a worldwide phenomenon.
Muslims Against Jihad (not the original title)
An America at a Crossroads Research and Development project examining the way radical Muslims intimidate proponents of more moderate interpretations of the Koran and why Islamist beliefs have gained such popularity in the Muslim world.

So fear Allâh much [abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden and love Allâh much, perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained] that you may be grateful.

Gaza’s mayhem is the bitter fruit of terror as statecraft.
Scores of Palestinians were killed this week in Gaza in factional fighting between loyalists of President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and those of Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas. As if on cue, it took about 24 hours before pundits the world over blamed the violence on Israel and President Bush.This is the Israel that dismantled its settlements in Gaza in August 2005, a unilateral concession for which it asked, and got, nothing in return. And it is the U.S. President who, in a landmark speech five years ago this month, called on Palestinians to “elect new leaders, leaders not compromised by terror.” Had Palestinians done so, they could be living today in a peaceful, independent state. Instead, in January 2006 they freely handed the reins of government to Hamas in parliamentary elections. What is happening today is the result of that choice–their choice.That election didn’t simply emerge from a vacuum, however. It is a consequence of the cult of violence that has typified the Palestinian movement for much of its history and which has been tolerated and often celebrated by the international community. If Palestinians now think they can advance their domestic interests by violence, nobody should be surprised: The way of the gun has been paying dividends for 40 years.
In 1972 Palestinian terrorists murdered Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. Yet only two years later Yasser Arafat addressed the U.N.’s General Assembly–the first non-government official so honored. In 1970 Arafat attempted to overthrow Jordan’s King Hussein and tried to do the same a few years later in Lebanon. Yet in 1980, the European Community, in its Venice Declaration, recognized Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization as a legitimate negotiating partner.
In 1973, the National Security Agency recorded Arafat’s telephoned instructions to PLO terrorists to murder Cleo Noel, the U.S. ambassador in Sudan, and his deputy George Curtis Moore. Yet in 1993, Arafat was welcomed in the White House for the signing of the Oslo Accords with Israel. That same year, the British National Criminal Intelligence Service reported that the PLO made its money from “extortion, payoffs, illegal arms-dealing, drug trafficking, money laundering and fraud.” Yet over the next several years, the Palestinian Authority would become the largest single recipient of foreign aid on a per capita basis.
In 1996, after he had formally renounced terrorism in the Oslo Accords, Arafat told a rally in Gaza that “we are committed to all martyrs who died for the cause of Jerusalem starting with Ahmed Musa until the last martyr Yihye Ayyash”–Musa being the first PLO terrorist to be killed in 1965 and Ayyash being the Hamas mastermind of a series of suicide bombings in which scores of Israeli civilians were killed. Yet the Clinton Administration continued to pretend that Arafat was an ally in the fight against Hamas. In 2000, Arafat rejected an Israeli offer of statehood midwifed by President Clinton and instead initiated the bloody intifada that left 1,000 Israelis and 3,000 Palestinians dead.
In 2005, only months after Arafat’s death, Israel dismantled its settlements and withdrew its forces from the Gaza Strip. Palestinians have used the opportunity to intensify their rocket fire at civilian targets within Israel. Last month, Israeli security services arrested two Gazan women, one of them pregnant, who were planning to enter Israel on medical pretexts in order to carry out suicide attacks. Yet the same month, the World Bank issued a report faulting Israel for restricting Palestinian freedom of movement.
Now it appears Hamas has taken control of the Gaza Strip’s main road and its border with Egypt, as well as the offices of the so-called Preventive Security Services, traditionally a Fatah stronghold. “They are executing them one by one,” a witness told the Associated Press of Hamas’s reprisals against the Preventive Security personnel.
We do not pretend to know where all this will lead. On Thursday, Mr. Abbas dissolved the government and declared a state of emergency, though he seems powerless to change the course of events in Gaza. Israel could conceivably intervene, as could Egypt, and both states have powerful reasons to prevent the emergence of a Hamastan with close links to Iran hard on their borders. But neither do they wish to become stuck in the Strip’s bottomless factionalism and fanaticism.
At the same time, pressure will surely mount on Israel and the U.S. to accept Hamas’s ascendancy and begin negotiations with its leaders. According to this reasoning, the Bush Administration cannot demand democracy of the Palestinians and then refuse to recognize the results of a democratic election.
But leave aside the fact that Mr. Bush did not simply call for an election: Is it wise to negotiate with a group that kills its fellow Palestinians almost as freely as it does Israelis? And what would there be to negotiate about? The best-case scenario–a suspension of hostilities in exchange for renewed international funding–would simply give Hamas time and money to consolidate its rule and rebuild an arsenal for future terror assaults. Then, too, the last thing the Palestinians need is yet further validation from the wider world that the violence they now inflict so indiscriminately works.
The deeper lesson here is that a society that has spent the last decade celebrating suicide bombing would inevitably become a victim of its own nihilistic impulses. This is not the result of Mr. Bush’s call for democratic responsibility; it is the bitter fruit of the decades of dictatorship and terrorism as statecraft that Yasser Arafat instilled among Palestinians.
Why does the west continue to believe that peace is possible in the Middle East? Do we not have enough proof that peaceful negotiation with the followers of Islam is pure folly?
What of the so called Palestinians and why are we supporting them when they do not exist? Think about that and then read more here.
Imagine a neighbor that wants you dead and will do anything to bring that about. What would you do? Call the police? Move and give up a home you sacrificed so much for? What if that home had been handed down through countless generations of family and your own people had given their lives and those of their children to keep. And if this home had been given to you by God, would you be so willing to give that up without fighting for it? Why should you have to move? Why would you move??
Consider the plight of the Israeli’s and their unholy neighbors the Palestinians. The world condemns Israel but what of their murderous neighbors? Where is the condemnation? The following link contains pictures that may disturb you so consider yourself warned. With neighbors like these, who needs more enemies?
And what of us? Are you willing to embrace 5th Century barbarians? The same barbarians who have killed millions of people for centuries and have killed thousands of Americans over the last few decades? What about the thousands of Israeli’s who have died? Do you really think we can negotiate with Islam? Perhaps sit around the fireplace in your home and have meaningful conversations with them? Drink tea and sing campfire songs? Get to know them better and understand them?
Think again. Islam wants you, your family, your friends, and your neighbors dead. They don’t care who or what you are.
Consider events over the past few years. Remember September 11 ,2001 and the Twin Towers that are now but a memory. What about the nearly 3,000 who died there and the thousands who are still suffering?
Do you want more of these events that may bring death to millions? What will you do? What are you willing to do to preserve your way of life?
And think about your life as it is right now. Not perfect, certainly there are things we all would like to change or do better. But think for a moment, about the things in your life that you cherish the most. The things that bring you joy and laughter or peace and happiness. Whatever they may be do you agree that we live in a remarkable country? Do you feel fortunate to have liberty and freedom? Do you sometimes take for granted the freedoms that allow us to live in some relative peace and happiness? Of course, all of us do from time to time. Do you care? Do you really?
If watching American Idol or Oprah Winfrey or CBS evening news or any other program on television is more important than spending a few minutes every day educating yourself to the perils we all face then you can stop reading right now. Save yourself the time, this isn’t for you because if you think the above listed tv programs are in fact more important, then you don’t care about your own future or that of America’s. Argue all you like, but you have been presented with an opportunity to find out a truth that the mainstream media will not tell you about. What have you got to lose? A little of your time?
Do you love this country? Or do you believe that America and Israel are at fault for every thing wrong in the world. You decide, afterall we still have the freedom to do just that.
This is an appeal to all citizens of this country, whether you are Democrat, Republican, left wing , right wing, liberal or conservative. It matters not if you are Christian, non-theist or atheist, Buddhist, Catholic, humanist or your church is the great outdoors. If you value your life in America, then read on.
Is America perfect? No. Do we make mistakes? Of course we do. Pick a country who hasn’t and then name one country that allows all the freedoms and liberty we enjoy. Be honest. If you hate this country and want to see it fail then go somewhere else to live, you will have plenty of company. America is not your home.
Consider for a moment that this liberty and the freedoms we enjoy and take for granted were taken away. Could it happen here? There are those that are working towards that end inside and outside our country. They believe in anarchy and replacing our liberty and freedoms with tyranny and oppression. In short they hate you because you have something they don’t. Freedom and liberty.
Imagine simple pleasures like going to a concert, visiting a museum, or a night on the town with your loved one(s) to enjoy a movie and a dinner. Perhaps you like to read or take a stroll in a nearby park. Maybe your idea of pleasure is going to a baseball game and enjoying an ice cold beer with a hot dog smothered in goodies. Perhaps it is watching your children play or your grandchildren.
Whatever it might be, consider what the alternatives would likely be without liberty…without freedom.
Take a little time to educate yourself and those you care about. Studies in Islam.
|Islam: Religion of peace.||3:13 There has already been a sign for you (O Jews) in the two armies that met (in combat i.e. the battle of Badr): One was fighting in the Cause of Allâh, and as for the other (they) were disbelievers.

A Statement of Charges!
Max Flack Report
Where am I? I’m not supposed to be running an anti-Jihad website. I’m an old man. I’m supposed to be drinking gallons of coffee, jogging three miles a day and sitting in front of the TV set swearing at the Chicago Cubs—or cursing the computer; one is as irritating as the other. That’s what old men are supposed to do—make themselves as useless as possible, but then those bastards brought down the World Trade Center and everything changed. Well, not for everybody—but for me and Rocco DiPippo and Geraldo Rivera and millions of other Americans. But for some it’s been business as usual—for Rosie O’Donnell and Sean Penn, for the Democratic Party, for most of the Republican Party, for the campus SWINE (Students Woefully Ignorant of Nearly Everything), for the KKKK (Kollegiate Kustodians of all Kultural Knowledge), the radical left college professors like Ward Churchill, Robert Jensen and Nicolas DeGenova that dominate what passes for thought on American campuses, not much has changed. Maybe it’s because stupidity loves company and cowardice craves it even more.
There are 250,000,000 people in this world who believe it is okay to kill innocent men, women and children if it will advance the cause of their religion. That’s a lot of empty heads and 249,999,000 of them are Muslims. Not enough to alarm Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama perhaps but enough to send Jethro running to Uncle Jed for a new calculator. (“Two-hundred-fifty million, Uncle Jed! Two-hundred-fifty million!” “Now calm down, Jethro, calm down.”)
Two-hundred-and-fifty million! That number would terrify Dr. Frankenstein—he created one miserable measly monster; Mohammed has created hundreds of millions of them—Mohammed Atta, Osama bin Laden, Omar Bakri Mohammed, the Ayatollah Khomeini; Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Muqtada al-Sadr, Asan Akbar; Omar Abdel Rahman, a thousand jihadists named Mohammed residing inside one square mile in Pakistan—maybe inside one square block. They abound in New York, in California, in Michigan—in a mosque near you. Islam is a sick religion. It would be obvious if the dervishes would sit still long enough to have their temperatures taken. Franklin Graham said Islam was an evil religion. Many people agree with Graham but do not have the courage to say so. (Look! There lies Theo van Gogh—he disrespected Islam! How long did his movie last? Ten Minutes? Not worth getting killed over!)
Islam needs an exorcist worse than Linda Blair. And what does the Democratic Party have to offer—not William Blatty but Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid! Their recommendation—pull out of Iraq! They have been studying the Jubilation T. Cornpone Diaries. They know all about quagmires. Sure, quagmires, quicksand bogs…the stuff Foggy Bottom is made of. The United States is in a worse position today than it was right after the Second Battle of Bull Run—worse than it was after Pearl Harbor. Jefferson Davis did not want to invade the North. Lincoln could have walked away from the war and it would have been over. Japan wanted one battle with the United States, the one it had just fought—that was it. Neither could have conquered the United States and the same goes for Nazi Germany.In war, the initiative is everything. Pelosi and Reid would give it up. They would give it up for what…for talks…for talks with whom? (Look, Sancho, there’s another moderate Muslim! That’s the second one in 200 years! We’re making progress!) Good luck in finding Waldo.
There is nothing moderate about Islam. To believe in Allah and Mohammed is a Muslim’s highest goal. After that it’s Jihad—not the internal struggle between the id and the super-ego but Holy War, the quickest and surest way to Paradise. Mohammed Atta waged Jihad in the dar al-Harb against the nonbelievers; Salman Rushdie engaged in the other Jihad, the inner struggle. Rushdie lost and was anathematized. Whenever a suicide bomber strikes the moderate Muslim talks about Islam’s other Jihad, his struggle with his inner self. Opie Taylor struggled with his inner self every day. Should I cheat on the test? Should I hide Barney’s bullet? He didn’t turn it into a major life-and-death production. Islam’s inner struggle is nine-tenths nonsense—eyewash for dhimmis willing to be deluded—a way for a Muslim to avoid his complicity in one terrorist act after another. (“I was in Florida on St. Valentine’s Day, Mister Ness”)
Bring Abe Lincoln back to life and set him in the White House and it would be hours—maybe days—before he would realize it wasn’t 1863. (“Mr. President, the neocons want more money for the war.” “Neocons? Oh, you must mean Ben Wade and Zach Chandler.”) (“Senator Clinton to see you about the quagmire, Mr. President.” “The quagmire? It’s the Potomac, Mr. Hay. It always smells like this in the summertime.”) (“Who was that man? Clement Vallandigham?” “No, Mr. President, it was Harry Reid.”) (“And this woman’s group…they want to free the slaves in…Louisiana?” “No, Mr. President, they want to free the women in Iraq.”) There’s something wrong here.
And now a civil war is raging in Palestine. Was there an alternative? Ask Hamas Mouse. Hold a séance with Hanadi Jaradat. Check the Rogues Gallery—Yasser Arafat, Jimmy Carter, the Roadmap to Peace, the PLO, Hamas, the al-Aqsa Brigade, Islamic Jihad, intifadas, the right of return, Mad-Rats-Asses schools with textbooks that say: “There is no alternative to destroying Israel.” It’s a veritable devil’s playground—the Middle East. And lurking underneath this Hades on Earth is a crime so shocking in its magnitude it would have left Joseph Goebbels, Baldur von Schirach and the Hitler Youth gasping for breath—the systematic poisoning of the minds of generations of Palestinian children.
And the wonderful thing about all this—the war in Iraq, the horrors in Palestine, and the war on terror—is that it’s George W. Bush’s fault. Go ahead—ask Howard Dean…ask Dennis Kucinich. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) hasn’t accused George W. Bush of this, but the Democratic Party has. What a movie this will make in the 25th Century—Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Bush.
Had enough? Okay? Let’s put the blame where it belongs—on Islam. It wasn’t Osama bin Laden who brought down the World Trade Center and it wasn’t Mohammed Atta or the creepy slugs preaching hatred in a thousand mosques across the world—it was ISLAM! Words on paper can mean a lot. The Qur’an and Islam’s problems predated the birth of Thomas Jefferson by a thousand years. Old Jeff might have sent Stephen Decatur to Tripoli but he wasn’t responsible for the Crusades or Islam’s inability to come to grips with the modern world. It was Mohammed that drove the Jews out of Palestine.
The differences between Islam and Christianity are too numerous and too horrifying to dwell upon for any length of time but there is one difference that one should not forget—now pay attention, Howard Dean—Jesus Christ died for our sins; Mohammed has made millions of people die for his. Islam cannot be forgiven for what it did to the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

After conferring with students from several universities who were concerned about both the ignorance about the objectives of Islamic fascism among their fellow students and also the “unholy alliance” between campus leftists and jihadists seeking to undermine the War on Terror, the Freedom Center has launched a Terrorism Awareness Project. This Project will provide conservative students with an intellectual toolkit containing all the elements of the truth about jihad: a speakers’ bureau featuring figures such as Steve Emerson, Daniel Pipes and Robert Spencer; DVDs of films such as “Obsession” that dramatically underline the threat we face; printed material about the Islamists’ objectives and the successes they have had in penetrating Western culture and its institutions. The Terrorism Awareness Project will work in cooperation with Students for Academic Freedom, which now has chapters on over 150 college campuses, to help conservative student activists to demand equal time-in the classroom as well as at campus-wide events-whenever the left presents its propaganda about the war and the intentions of those who regard America as “the Great Satan.”
The left has already begun the transformation of many K-12 classrooms into indoctrination projects for its agendas. Concerted campaigns have been launched by the left at high schools geared to converting students into activists against the war and discouraging them from volunteering to serve. Radical pedagogy exemplified by the “Teaching for Social Justice” regimen has entered teacher training texts and teacher training graduate courses.
In response to this juggernaut, the Freedom Center has launched a Students and Parents for Academic Freedom in the K-12 schools, modeled on our current campaign on college campuses and with the same agenda: take politics out of the classroom. The Center has drafted an academic bill of rights for K-12 schools and created a new website-www.psaf.org. The Center has commissioned a book by education writer Sol Stern exposing the radical roots of the “Teaching for Social Justice” phenomenon (its leading intellectual influence is former Weatherman terrorist and current University of Chicago education professor Billy Ayres) and the extent to which it has penetrated teachers’ colleges and textbooks. Stern’s study will be published by Encounter Books in 2007.
IT’S EITHER AN UNPRECEDENTED LOW IN PARTISAN DISCOURSE OR POLITICAL SURREALISM worthy of André Breton: on Tuesday, former president Jimmy Carter, speaking on foreign soil, denounced the policies of his successor as “criminal” because they fail to subsidize a genocidal Islamic terrorist organization that has killed Americans. Then, he blamed internecine Palestinian warfare on Americans and Israelis.
Speaking in Ireland at the eighth annual Forum on Human Rights – without an apparent hint of irony – Carter said the Bush administration had sinned against heaven and earth in its decision to withhold direct aid to Hamas once that group came to power in the Palestinian Authority. “That action was criminal,” he said. The Palestinian people had elected Hamas fair-and-square in elections his Center described as “orderly and fair.” (Carter said the same of Hugo Chavez’s election.) He deemed Hamas “shrewd in selecting candidates.”
