Hamas And The Desperate People of Palestine...A Recent History

If anyone told me years ago that I would be writing a post defending an Islamic group like Hamas, I would have told them they were out of their mind. How things have changed. As the people of Gaza are being slaughtered by Apartheid Israel, Hamas seems to be getting a lot of bad press. I thought it might be useful to write a more recent history of Hamas. Rest assured you will never see this history provided in the American press. And I’m not going to go too far back, because if I do, I will have to mention not only Hamas' terrorist acts but those of the founders of Apartheid Israel in the creation of their stolen state and their never ending terrorism since. Of course no one wants to talk about that. That would be anti-Semitic.

First of all, we hear alot about the Hamas credo, you know the destruction of Israel, setting up a Muslim state and all of that stuff. I imagine that if I had had my land stolen and had been subjected to Zion-fascist tyranny for decades, I probably would also have put together a rather strongly worded document to let my captors and others know my feelings. God forbid that I should in any way come across as hateful to those who had subjected me to endless humiliation and indignity.

I will start my recent history with the 2006 Hamas election victory. This victory followed the decades of political ineptness and corruption by it’s chief rival Fatah. Here is what an Israeli newspaper reported as one of their first acts.

A few months after Hamas' 2006 election victory, leader Ismail Haniyeh tried to start a dialogue with U.S. President George W. Bush. Haaretz has obtained a written message from Haniyeh sent to Bush via an American professor who met with Haniyeh in the Gaza Strip. Haniyeh asked Bush to lift the boycott of the Hamas government and pressure Israel to maintain stability in the region. On June 6, 2006, Haniyeh met Dr. Jerome Segal of the University of Maryland in the Gaza Strip.

...At the time of the meeting, Hamas was trying to establish its three-month-old government under an international boycott. The Quartet for Middle East peace had called on the organization to recognize Israel, disavow terror and honor existing agreements. At the end of the meeting, Haniyeh dictated a short message he asked Segal to transmit to President Bush. Haniyeh spoke Arabic and Youssuf translated his words into English. Segal took down the letter in his notebook and Haniyeh and Youssuf both signed it.

Haniyeh wrote in the missive, "We are an elected government which came through a democratic process." In the second paragraph, Haniyeh laid out the political platform he maintains to this day. "We are so concerned about stability and security in the area that we don't mind having a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders and offering a truce for many years," he wrote.

Haniyeh called on Bush to launch a dialogue with the Hamas government. "We are not warmongers, we are peace makers and we call on the American government to have direct negotiations with the elected government," he wrote.

Haniyeh also urged the American government to act to end the international boycott "because the continuation of this situation will encourage violence and chaos in the whole region." Upon his return to the U.S. several days later, Segal gave State Department and NSC officials the original letter. In his own letter, Segal emphasized that a state within the 1967 borders and a truce for many years could be considered Hamas' de facto recognition of Israel. He noted that in a separate meeting, Youssuf suggested that the Palestinian Authority and Israel might exchange ambassadors during that truce period. This was not the only covert message from Hamas to senior Bush administration officials. However, Washington did not reply to these messages and maintained its boycott of the Hamas government.

Although Haaretz indicates Washington did not reply, it did respond, with its usual bad faith and treachery inspired by Israel's Zionist minions within the Bush Administration.

Shortly there after, Deputy National Security Advisor, Zion-fascist Elliott Abrams met with a group of Palestinian business men and discussed the violent overthrow of the the Hamas leadership with arms supplied by the United States. In the months that followed, the United States supplied guns, ammunition and training to Palestinian Fatah activists to take on Hamas in the streets of Gaza and the West Bank. Hamas was victorious in Gaza and its control reestablished. Thus another misadventure (and there were many)conceived by war criminal Elliot Abrams, turned to shit. And now not surprisingly everything that Haniyeh warned our Presidential Stooge about has come to pass.

But America's fraudulent media did not report this either. Nor have they reported that since Hamas was elected by the Palestinian people that for the most part the Palestinians held their fire. They held their fire even after being imprisoned within their own borders, starved and denied humanitarian supplies while choked off from the rest of the world. That is the recent history of Hamas.
