Hamas: Always looking out for the little guy
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, January 13, 2009

You get the government you elect:
Hamas on Monday raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders.

The IDF said that since terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA and the Red Cross, Israel could do nothing to prevent such raids, Israel Radio reported.
When you elect murderers and bandits as your government, don't be surprised when the act like what they are.

Also, they thought it was hilarious.

So, I guess the UN aid convoy was really held up until Hamas could arrange the proper auction facilities.

You know, have to make sure the right people get their cut...nudge nudge...wink wink...grin grin....say no more.

Translation: If we had done anything, we would have been skewered in the press for preventing Palestinian access to humanitarian aid.

The nice part about this whole "Israel invades Gaza" story is that the whole world (and the maggots who support them) called for Israel to stop the war and get out, and Israel just ignored them and went right on doing what they thought was in their best interest.

In short, Israel told the world to p!ss off.

That is why I am rooting for Netanyahu to win the PM slot next month. Because if, as I expect, The Clown™ and his maladministration tell Israel not to do certain things, Israel can tell Secretary of State Madam Moron and President Empty Suit to go FUGG themselves. And I will cheer for Israel.

Pretty sad that I have to root for my own government to get the finger from a foreign power, but, alas, that is what you get when the US is taken over by thugs, losers, and dickheads.

Now the Hamas defenders can explain:

How firing rockets into Israel brings peace
How looting and profiting from aid trucks sent to aid your people makes you a good government.

How looting and profiting from aid trucks sent to aid your people makes you a good government.
1. You are being ethno-centric. You are imposing a White European definition of "Good Government" onto Palestinians, when in fact there are multiple narratives and paradigms available from which to chose when "governing." So, move past your racist, ethnocentric PoV.
2. From that flows that under the Progressive/Critical Theory Model of "Good Governance" the idea is to destroy the Oppressor and Liberate the Oppressed Other. Which leads to:
a. This money generated allows for the procurement of the means to continue the Struggle against the Colonial Oppressor. This alone justifies the “theft”. Which, of course, leads to another point of Racist Ethnocentrism you make, that “property” and “theft” have some kind of universal meaning, when in fact they don’t. Again, you impose a White European interpretation of these terms on the Palestinians, in a form of Cultural Imperialism. Which, as a Progressive and I reject, and the Oppressed Other rejects as well. This “property” is not being “stolen.” The Property belongs to the WHOLE PALESTINIAN People and is for the furtherance of their post-colonial struggle. Therefore it is NOT the “property” of any individual Palestinian, but rather belongs to all, and more importantly those cadres that understand the historical necessity of this struggle and who are uniquely qualified to distribute it, for the good of ALL the People, not just the hungry, the poor, the sick or the old. In turn, then, it follows that this property cannot be “stolen” but is merely being appropriated for The Struggle.
b. The Struggle Against Colonialism requires sacrifice, both in the sense that the People must be Mobilized to Combat the Oppressor, and that comes with a cost, but also the People must Suffer in order to Mobilize, both themselves and the Opinion of the Progressive cadres and their followers in the Neo-Colonial Centre. Therefore, not only must the food and aid be appropriated in order to fund the struggle it is necessary that the People be seen to be hungry and destitute, allowing increased social cohesion of the People in the Historic Struggle, but also to mobilize support against the Colonial Oppressor.
3. Conclusion: The words “theft” and “property” are merely reified concepts of the Capitalist Oppressor, who seeks to dominate the Inner World, making manifest in the social/intellectual substructure of a nascent society certain Capitalist concepts, and fomenting a False Consciousness, amongst the Palestinians and the Dupes of the Zionist Oppressor in the West. This is NOT Theft, this is the Revolutionary Struggle carried to its necessary and ultimate conclusion. Only those seeking to impose a Bourgeois False Consciousness speak of “theft.” This is the Revolution!

Ah, but first someone has to demand an explanation from them.

I’m sure the MSM will get right on it.

Boy, do I ever stand corrected!

I will endeavor in the future not to oppress rising cultures by trying to enforce a cookie cutter view of "good" or "bad" upon them when my own personal experiences, largely based on a european model of an outmoded system of right and wrong, is clearly flawed.
I’m not sure what I was thinking, but clearly I did them an injustice in insisting that my preferred system might yield more positive results over all than the system they have more or less selected.

I’m sure I’m sorry, if that’s okay.

1. Where do you find "them?" If you can find them, so can the Israeli Air Force...
2. Do you really "demand" anything from men with AK’s and the obvious ability and desire to use them?

Looker, apology accepted...Self-criticism is the first step to a poperly formed revolutionary consciousness.

Next, comes a PhD from a REAL university, followed by tenure.

If you’re smart you get your own blog.

Now that Ott and I are here, does the REAL Herr Doktor really need to come by, giving him more time to cogitate deep thoughts, drink latte’s and frappacinos and oggle the co-eds.

1. Where do you find "them?"
The MSM never has trouble finding members of terrorist organisations. They’re all buddies, remember?

Besides, if you make it impossible for your RP firm (read "the MSM") to get ahold of you, you make it impossible for them to get your (read "Hamas’s") message of peace (read "victimhood") and love (read "the slaughter of Jews") out to the masses (read "the gullible left").
2. Do you really "demand" anything from men with AK’s and the obvious ability and desire to use them?
Sure you do. Usually it’s done with thousand pound bombs, laser targeting, fast jets, and a determined and well trained ground force.
