The Truth Of Hamas, In Their Own Words

The following video is a presentation of MEMRI a group which does an absolutely excellent job of bringing Middle East media to the rest of the world, allowing us to judge the nations and the religiosity of the region for ourselves.

In case you are not wanting to watch the whole of the video of I have made a transcription of the various clips within the video. I think it is important that every person knows what is being taught and told to Muslims around the world. By conducting a little personal research it is easy to determine that statements such as you will see in the video are not a peculiarity of Hamas only.

The rhetoric is wide spread and readily received. I would like not to think that the majority of Muslims believe the type of preaching that comes from Hamas and similar groups, but the more I look at the media from Islamic nations the less I believe the claim that Islam has been hijacked by a minority of radicals.

That is something I suppose each individual person can decide upon for themselves for the time being, I suspect that the truth of it will be known sooner or later.

The transcript is posted below the video.

Those Sensitive Iranians

flagiran

Hollywood has insulted the nation of Iran.

Telegraph

Iran has again accused Hollywood of “anti-Iranian” sentiment, this time due to scenes in The Wrestler, a Golden Globe-nominated drama starring Mickey Rourke.

The country’s media has reportedly condemned the film in part because of a fight sequence in which Rourke’s character, Randy ‘the Ram’ Robinson, battles an opponent dubbed the Ayatollah.

During the fight, the Ayatollah, played by actor and former professional wrestler Ernest “the Cat” Miller, waves an Iranian flag before ramming the pole under his opponent’s neck. Rourke’s character then grabs the flag and snaps the pole over his knee before tossing it into the crowd.

This from a nation where the government organizes anti American protests (even paying some of the participants to take part in the protests) where the American flag is always burned and often times our leaders are burned in effigy.

It isn’t that I am surprised about this claim of an ‘anti-Iranian sentiment’, just a little ticked off that one of the worlds largest sponsors of terror (if not the largest) would cry that an Iranian flag was mistreated in a Hollywood film.

Until the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America, Iran was responsible for more American deaths by way of terrorism than any other nation or group. These terrorist attacks being carried out by terrorist groups sponsored by Iran, hezbollah being the most effective for Iran in these murderous endeavors.

I’d say the nation of Iran, or at least it’s government have a far longer standing tradition of an anti-American sentiment than we do an anti-Iran sentiment. Not to mention that in Hollywood, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is far more likely to find sympathizers than he is to find those who are anti-Iran.

 

The article goes on:

It accused the Hollywood studio of participating in a campaign of “psychological warfare”, “plundering Iran’s historic past and insulting its civilization”, and depicting Persians as “ugly and violent creatures rather than human beings”.

The individual citizens of Iran may well not be “ugly and violent creatures”,the members of their government however are.

You were not insulted.

Next time your wack-job president comes to New York to speak at the U.N., pay my travel expenses and I’ll show you how to insult a nation and it’s leaders.

I’ll just follow your lead, burn flag, burn leader in effigy.
