Hamas - The Terror Elite

Subject: Hamas - The Terror Elite

1. The Attempt to Legitimize and Prettify Hamas by the Anti-Semites

Hamas: The Terror Elite
By: Steven Plaut
*Friday, June 19, 2009*

A new pamphlet the details the brutal history of Gaza's jihadist rulers.

It is one of the oddities of the global war on terrorism that while al-Qaeda
is almost universally condemned, its Sunni terrorist counterparts in Hamas
continue to attract a devoted following. Former president Jimmy Carter
annually sings Hamas's praises, insisting to all who will listen that
Western governments must reach out to Gaza's jihadist rulers. At "peace"
demonstrations and on college campuses, banners are waved in honor of the
group openly sworn to the destruction of Israel and the extermination of
Jews worldwide. All this and more is the subject of Steven Plaut's
devastating new pamphlet, "Hamas: The Terror Elite."

In a sweeping survey of Hamas's bloody history, Plaut reveals that the
terror group remains unwaveringly committed to its goal of carrying out a
new genocide against Jews. Plaut also describes the little-mentioned reality
that the self-described "legitimate" representative of the Palestinian people
is also their most brutal tormentor. Terrorizing its own, Hamas tortures
Gaza's residents, forces them to live under oppressive Islamic law, and
dispatches "vice squads" to deal with those who dare to defy its fanatical
rule. It's little wonder that Hamas has found its firmest allies in the
mullahs of Iran and Osama Bin Laden's terrorist shock troops. As Plaut's
pamphlet shows beyond any doubt, "Hamas and al-Qaeda are basically two sides
of the same Jihad." To read "Hamas: The Terror Elite," please click here.

3. The Weekly Standard reports the story of the University of Haifa
In Which an Anti-Zionist Pro-Hamas Islamist Delivers a Lecture at Haifa
University and Jewish Students Are Barred

4. The atrocity at the University of Haifa, in which the Islamofascist
Sheikh Raed Salah (head of the Islamofascist movement in israel) was
invited by a pro-jihad group of Arab students to speak on campus and where
Jewish students were barred from entering th electure hall, continues to
make tsunami waves.
The Sheikh there called on Arab students to become shaheed
(code for suicide bombing terrorists) martyrs. First the University of
Haifa has issued an official statement regarding the event. It can be
viewed in Hebrew here:

It essentially says that while the University of Haifa dislikes the idea of
the Jihad Sheikh speaking, it cannot stop him and cannot stop the
Arabs student group from inviting anyone it pleases to campus. It then
contains a denial that Jews were barred from entering the lecture hall, but
in the very next sentence the statement contradicts itself. It insists that
allowing Jewish students into the hall (a group of noisy Zionist students
waving Israeli flags was demonstrating OUTSIDE the hall) would have created
the conditions for violent confrontation and would have been a clear and
present danger.

So to put this in simple English, the claim that Jewish students were NOT
barred from the lecture hall is false and the very same statement debunks
its own claim. Incidentally, the claim has been debunked by others. In a
posting to an internal chat list of University of Haifa profs, Yuval Yonay,
one of the most openly anti-Israel and pro-Hamas members of the faculty
(he teaches "Queer Studies" and a one-sided indoctrination course called
"Sociology of the Occupation" in which no pro-Israel materials are
included), reports - while supporting the speech by the Jihad Sheikh - that
his own Jewish students confirmed to him that THEY were barred from enetring
the lecture hall because they are Jews. And no one would ever suspect
Yonay of inventing such a claim to promote a Zionist political agenda.

I would like to see the University play the "academic freedom fiddle" if
some students were to invite Moshe Feiglin to speak on campus (while
barring Arab students from entering the lecture hall?) or some leader of
one of the fringe Kahanist groups. I have a month's salary bet on the
University banning the talk on grounds that it would represent "racism."
(Tel Aviv University banned a student art exhibit protesting the
treatrment of the Falun Gong cult group, because the university was afraid
it would offend the China Embassy staff.) (For details go to

The University, like other universities in similar circumstances, rags on
about freedom of speech on campus. Well, I happen to know of Jewish
students who tried to enter Haifa U campus with Israeli flags to support the
Cast Lead operations against the Hamas and they were prevented from

Meanwhile, Hebrew readers should read this interesting column by Dr. David
Bukay of the University of Haifa:

It is entitled, "There are Anti-Semitic Faculty Members at the University of
Haifa" and Bukay writes a damning expose. Bukay himself has been persecuted
and harassed in the past because he dared to make politically incorrect
statements in class. (Compare that with the passivity of the University when
it comes to Yonay's "Sociology of the Occupation" in-classroom

4. Ben Dror Yemini, the editor of Maariv, is at his best in his column this
weekend. If I find the whole thing in English I will post it, but here is
one segment I will translate for you. It is a citation from the Arab
fascist Azmi Bishara, who used to be a Knesset Member in Israel. He is
now in hiding, wanted by Israel for espionage
and treason for providing the Hezballah with intelligence during the 2006
war (designed to help it shoot rockets at the Jews).

Yemini cites Bishara as saying in an inteview (I may be translating
Yemini's own translation into Hebrew of what Bishara said in English, but
bear with me):

"I do not think there is any Palestinian people at all. I think there is
an Arab people. I always thought this. I think the 'Palestinian people' is
nothing but a colonialist invention. When was there ever such a nation or

Two states for two people, indeed!
