A slap in the face for Europe


A guest post by AKUS

After all the aid, and all the flotillas, and all the discussions, and all the visits, and all the anti-Israeli resolutions, and all the failed boycotts, and all the anti-Israeli articles, and all the support from Code Pink, and all the secular leftists supporting Hamas’ right to inflict a medieval theocracy on the people of Gaza … this is what Europe gets from Hamas in return?

Mahmoud A-Zahar says Western world ‘does not even live like animals’

The West is floundering in immorality and has no right to criticize the Islamist movement Hamas over the way it governs the Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip, [Mahmoud A-Zahar of Hamas] said.

“We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion. You have no religion. You are secular,” said Zahar, who is one of the group’s most influential and respected voices.

“You do not live like human beings. You do not [even] live like animals. You accept homosexuality. And now you criticize us?” he said earlier this week, speaking from his apartment building in the densely populated, Mediterranean city.

Oh well … I suppose it was just words … he doesn’t really mean it … does he? But if he does … isn’t it time for the Guardian to take notice? Unless, of course, the editorial staff agrees with him.

  1. “..Western world ‘does not even live like animals’..”

    That explains a great deal about why they won’t deal with Hamas and other Muslim terrorist groups – openly at least.

  2. “…We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion….”

    Perhaps so knucklehead, but you don’t have the right to inflict your stone age “value system” on the rest of the world.

    And doesn’t he know that some animals are homosexual? (Obviously not. Along with the stone age values comes the cretinous attitude to science and observation).

    Of course the editorial staff of the Groan agrees with him. They are probably being “helped out financially” by the very same Muslim Brotherhood of which he is a part.

  3. “We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion.”

    But when it comes to honor killings, one is no long controlling one’s own life.

    My roommate once described to me the moment of clarity he had when he realized that there was only one country in the middle east where he could safely identify as both an anarchist and a bisexual.
