And Talking about Ignorance and Bigotry...

A reprint from 2003, available via the wayback machine


By Alan Zoe E. Brain for The Command Post

Many people (myself included) have wondered about the nature of Hamas, whose leaders are now officially targets for the IDF. Recently, I found (courtesy of Yale University's Avalon Project) the "Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement", otherwise known as the Hamas Covenant, which clearly states the nature of the organisation, its aims and aspirations.

It contains things that surprise me, but in retrospect shouldn't have. (Not for the first time - I was aghast when I found out that Itzak Shamir, ex-PM of Israel, once headed a group that proposed an alliance with the Nazis against the British). No-one really believed what Adolph Hitler said in Mein Kampf until he started to implement the Endlosung, the "Final Solution". Think the comparison is invalid (as I tend to do when anyone ever starts talking about Nazis)? Read on, to find out exactly what Hamas's beliefs and aims are.

WARNING : May be offensive to Freemasons, Rotarians, members of the Lions Club, and other tools of the International Zionist Conspiracy (just read it, OK? I can't make this stuff up.

Some quotes;

Article Two:
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine. Moslem Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times.
So while "Moslem Brotherhood" and "Hamas" are not synonyms, Hamas is part of the Moslem Brotherhood - support for it is support for Hamas.
Article Eight:
Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.
Taken literally, this would lead to Hamas members becoming Human Bombs to kill unbelievers. Hmm, I guess we do have to take this document's words literally, no matter how unbelievable. OK....
Article Six:
The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned....
Given the situation where Sharia law is practiced, I have grave misgivings about the truth of this proposition, but at least the intent is relatively sane and rational.
Article Seven:
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews."
(related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).
You know what I said about "sane and rational"? I take it all back. Still, you can find equally crazy things in the Bible, the Torah, the Bhagavid-Ghita etc etc. But these people take it literally.
Article Ten:
As the Islamic Resistance Movement paves its way, it will back the oppressed and support the wronged with all its might. It will spare no effort to bring about justice and defeat injustice, in word and deed, in this place and everywhere it can reach and have influence therein.
More rationality, few could quarrel with these words as worthy objectives.
Article Eleven:
The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up.
This is the law governing the land of Palestine in the Islamic Sharia (law) and the same goes for any land the Moslems have conquered by force, because during the times of (Islamic) conquests, the Moslems consecrated these lands to Moslem generations till the Day of Judgement.
This includes Spain, France as far north as Tours, India, and all parts of Europe east of Vienna. Osama Bin Laden is not alone in not accepting the "Tragedy of Andalucia" as he put it in one of his tapes, and so will continue to fight as long as Spain remains outside of the Caliphate. Hamas says they will do likewise, unless this translation is erroneous.
Article Twelve:
Nationalism, from the point of view of the Islamic Resistance Movement, is part of the religious creed. Nothing in nationalism is more significant or deeper than in the case when an enemy should tread Moslem land. Resisting and quelling the enemy become the individual duty of every Moslem, male or female. A woman can go out to fight the enemy without her husband's permission, and so does the slave: without his master's permission.
An interesting section from a Feminist perspective : to praise because it gives the Right of Women to blow themselves up (as long as they kill unbelievers), or to condemn because it portrays women as slaves? To an old Abolitionist like me, any slavery is odious, whether it be due to gender or otherwise, and I don't value the right to become human dynamite very highly.
Article Thirteen:
Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement....
OK, so they're being consistent. Peace is impossible as long as Hamas exists(and Israel, Spain, and India aren't under Sharia law). Rigghhht.
Article Fifteen:

...It is necessary that scientists, educators and teachers, information and media people, as well as the educated masses, especially the youth and sheikhs of the Islamic movements, should take part in the operation of awakening (the masses). It is important that basic changes be made in the school curriculum, to cleanse it of the traces of ideological invasion that affected it as a result of the orientalists and missionaries who infiltrated the region following the defeat of the Crusaders at the hands of Salah el-Din (Saladin). The Crusaders realised that it was impossible to defeat the Moslems without first having ideological invasion pave the way by upsetting their thoughts, disfiguring their heritage and violating their ideals. Only then could they invade with soldiers.
So the Renanaissance, the Enlightenment, in fact all of Western Civilisation is all just a plot, hatched over 8 centuries, to win the Crusades. Damn Cunning, these Fiendish Occidentals! These people really believe this....
Article Seventeen:
The Moslem woman has a role no less important than that of the moslem man in the battle of liberation. She is the maker of men. Her role in guiding and educating the new generations is great. The enemies have realised the importance of her role. They consider that if they are able to direct and bring her up they way they wish, far from Islam, they would have won the battle. That is why you find them giving these attempts constant attention through information campaigns, films, and the school curriculum, using for that purpose their lackeys who are infiltrated through Zionist organizations under various names and shapes, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs.
So Feminists, Rotarians, and Freemasons are all part of the International Zionist Conspiracy. Sorry, my bogglemeter just pegged at maximum. I'm not playing Illuminati, these people are For Real.
Article Nineteen:

...All this is utterly serious and no jest, for those who are fighters do not jest.
Believe me, we're not laughing. there's nothing funny about Psychopathic Insanity and serial Killers.
Article Twenty:

...The society that confronts a vicious enemy which acts in a way similar to Nazism, making no differentiation between man and woman, between children and old people - such a society is entitled to this Islamic spirit. Our enemy relies on the methods of collective punishment. He has deprived people of their homeland and properties, pursued them in their places of exile and gathering, breaking bones, shooting at women, children and old people, with or without a reason. The enemy has opened detention camps where thousands and thousands of people are thrown and kept under sub-human conditions. Added to this, are the demolition of houses, rendering children orphans, meting cruel sentences against thousands of young people, and causing them to spend the best years of their lives in the dungeons of prisons.

In their Nazi treatment, the Jews made no exception for women or children. Their policy of striking fear in the heart is meant for all. They attack people where their breadwinning is concerned, extorting their money and threatening their honour. They deal with people as if they were the worst war criminals. Deportation from the homeland is a kind of murder.
Such sub-human conditions that the 750,000 Palestinians that left Israel, some "ethnically cleansed" by Jewish terrorists, some just temporarily vacationing until the victorious Arab Armies killed all the Jews, have now grown to 4 millions. There's no mention of the similar number of Jews in the surrounding Arab countries that were forcibly deported, or sometimes just exterminated. To compare the survivors of the Holocaust with the perpetrators of it is a classic case of "blaming the victim". What are suicide bombings against civilians but a classic case of "collective punishment" and "shooting at women, children and old people, with or without a reason." There's still more than just a smidgeon of justice in what they say though.
Article Twenty-Two:
For a long time, the enemies have been planning, skillfully and with precision, for the achievement of what they have attained. They took into consideration the causes affecting the current of events. They strived to amass great and substantive material wealth which they devoted to the realisation of their dream. With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others. With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the world with the purpose of achieving their interests and reaping the fruit therein. They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there. With their money they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies and achieving Zionist interests. With their money they were able to control imperialistic countries and instigate them to colonize many countries in order to enable them to exploit their resources and spread corruption there.

You may speak as much as you want about regional and world wars. They were behind World War I, when they were able to destroy the Islamic Caliphate, making financial gains and controlling resources. They obtained the Balfour Declaration, formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the world. They were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state. It was they who instigated the replacement of the League of Nations with the United Nations and the Security Council to enable them to rule the world through them. There is no war going on anywhere, without having their finger in it.
Ummmmmm...... Genuine Moonbats. we're talking serious reality dysfunction and derangement here. Any moment now they'll start babbling on about the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion".
Article Twenty-Eight:
The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion. It does not refrain from resorting to all methods, using all evil and contemptible ways to achieve its end. It relies greatly in its infiltration and espionage operations on the secret organizations it gave rise to, such as the Freemasons, The Rotary and Lions clubs, and other sabotage groups. All these organizations, whether secret or open, work in the interest of Zionism and according to its instructions. They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion.
So the International Zionists control the UN, the drug trade, the alcohol industry, the Freemasons, Lions, Rotarians... and it's all a part of an 800 year plot by the Crusaders.
Article Thirty-One:
The Islamic Resistance Movement is a humanistic movement. It takes care of human rights and is guided by Islamic tolerance when dealing with the followers of other religions.
<sarcasm>Whew! That's a relief!></sarcasm>
It does not antagonize anyone of them except if it is antagonized by it or stands in its way to hamper its moves and waste its efforts.
In other words, do what we say, ad no-one gets hurt.
Under the wing of Islam, it is possible for the followers of the three religions - Islam, Christianity and Judaism - to coexist in peace and quiet with each other. Peace and quiet would not be possible except under the wing of Islam. Past and present history are the best witness to that.
As for Hindus or Buddhists - they don't count.
It is the duty of the followers of other religions to stop disputing the sovereignty of Islam in this region, because the day these followers should take over there will be nothing but carnage, displacement and terror. Everyone of them is at variance with his fellow-religionists, not to speak about followers of other religionists. Past and present history are full of examples to prove this fact.
We are the Master Race - er - Religion, destined to rule all Untermenschen - er - inferior religions, in a Thousand Year Reich - er - Caliphate.
Article Thirty-Two:
...The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying.
There! Told you the good old Protocols would be making an appearance.

  • Islam is the Master Religion, it is the duty of all other religions to peacefully submit to co-existence under the benevolent rule of Islam
  • Spain, Most of France, Israel, Europe east of Vienna, and India should be under Sharia Law
  • Until this is achieved, in full and in every particular, there can be no Peace
  • And any violence (as well as the French and Russian Revolutions, WW I and WW II) is all the fault of the Zionists, and their puppets, the Freemason, Rotarians, Lions Club, and 800-year-old Crusader Conspiracy against Islam
There's always a danger in any article quoting from another that parts may be taken out of context, that the lilly may end up being gilded. So rather than take my word for it, read what the original article actually says - then tell me where I've gone wrong with my interpretation. Because if I've got it right, then this organisation must be destroyed, root and branch, purely as a matter of self-defence. Especially if you're a Freemason, Rotarian or Lion.

And their latest? This video just a week or so old.

The struggle against insanity, irrationality, and malice is one that will never end. But we do our part. And some battles are more spectacular than others.

It's not (just) that I campaign in favour of Human Rights for the Transsexual and Intersexed because I'm in that odd little group. I've always campaigned against the kind of insane persecution certain groups are traditionally and historically subject to, and I've always done it by shining a light on the hatred and evil behind such persecution. I don't need to point out the maliciousness and spite of those who hate by editorial comment: rather, I merely quote them in their own words, occasionally remarking on what those words entail.

There are those of goodwill who can differ in their opinions, on how they weigh the balance of the evidence, be that concerning the morality or otherwise of the policies of the State of Israel, or Transsexuality. And then there are those whose hatred has turned to madness, the irrational and the foaming-at-the-mouth rabid lunatics.

The first can be argued with, by adducing facts and evidence. The second, well, the best thing to do is calmly and coherently adduce facts and evidence too. It won't reach them, but the sheer contrast between the berserk and bizarre, and the calm and kind is far more convincing to bystanders than the most eloquent rhetoric.

Here's a relatively mild example:
This Is What's Wrong In America
Thank goodness the company fired this pervert. Anyone who claims to be "transgendered" is mentally ill. If your genes and your plumbing testify to your maleness then you are a man and not a woman. The co-workers were right to reject the presence of this idiot who apparently cannot figure out life. And the lawyer who represents him is also part of the vermin-infested institution we call "the law".

There is no such thing as transsexuality except in the minds of the victimology class who have way too much time on their hands. They are a cancer on this nation, and remind me of the trend toward the nazification of those who are vested in changing normal society into perverted society.

Compare and contrast my reply. See what I mean?

Tomorrow will be the third anniversary of the great watershed in my life, the one where I finally stopped being able to do the Boy Act. But in many ways, the venir was thinner than I realised. There's far too much of the real me in my writings before May 4th, 2005 to say that the act was a good one. It relied too much on people seeing what they expected to see, on my physical appearance, and not my personality.

Everyday in this life there are a million new things to fear, thousands of victims, hundreds of new unjust laws, and dozens of tinhorn dictators; but there is only one sunrise, one sunset, and one person who is ultimately responsible for our own happiness.

Happy anniversary!
