Zak vs. UWM JMC Deparment


Following Hamas' election victory, I decided to use the JMC's email reflector to educate people about what and who Hamas is and what they stand for. Other's have used the reflector to mail political articles, and so for the first time, I did to. The following is the original message I sent. In the next posts, I will publish the responses I have received so far.

"I don't think I've ever used this email list before to dabble in my own personal political concerns, but with the election victory of Hamas in the Palestinian territories, I find myself terribly depressed and concerned about prospects for a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians. If you are not familiar with Hamas, here is a link to their covenant:

If you don’t feel like stomaching the whole thing, here are some choice quotes for your reading pleasure/disgust:

“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).”

“Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised.” (Hey, I thought they only hated Zionists?- Zak) “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…” (In other words, Israel must be obliterated completely. Some might consider this a threat of genocide.)

This one is really weird: “The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: "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 andMoslem).” (BTW, does anybody have any Gharkad tree seeds? I’d like to plant some so that I can hide behind one when the slaughter begins.-Zak)

“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.”

“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. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king or president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organizationn or all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that. Palestine is an Islamic Waqf land consecrated for Moslem generations until Judgement Day. This being so, who could claim to have the right to represent Moslem generations till Judgement Day?” (Hmmm… so what to do with those pesky 5 million Jews living there…? –Zak).“

"I swear by the holder of Mohammed's soul that I would like to invade and be killed for the sake of Allah, then invade and be killed, and then invade again and be killed." (As related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).” (What about being lawyer or doctor and enjoying a juicy lamb kebab, i.e. enjoying life? –Zak)

“The Moslem woman has a role no less important than that of the moslem man in the battle of liberation. (Who said Islam is anti-woman? -Zak) She is the maker of men. (Duh!) 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. The day Islam is in control of guiding the affairs of life, these organizations, hostile to humanity and Islam, will be obliterated.” (Oy! The paranoia mixed with religious fundamentalism is funny yet frightening; I don’t know whether to laugh or cry—or by a gun and plant Gharkad trees. –Zak)

“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. (Possible class topic in JMC? Just kidding. –Zak) 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.” (If we Jews were that powerful, these Islamo-Nazis wouldn’t be alive to spew their poison. You gotta give Hamas some credit, though, by seamlessly weaving Islamic Jew hatred with traditional European anti-Semitism. Very cleaver. –Zak) And it goes on…

“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.”

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 Lionsclubs, 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.” (Shhhh… but an Elder of Zion actually tasked me to cobble together this message as part of our grand scheme. –Zak)

“Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people. "May the cowards never sleep." (Weird, I did have insomnia last night… -Zak)

“The Islamic Resistance Movement is a humanistic movement.” (I just did aspit-take with my coffee after reading that one! –Zak) “The Islamic Resistance Movement calls on Arab and Islamic nations to take up the line of serious and persevering action to prevent the success of this horrendous plan, to warn the people of the danger eminating from leaving the circle of struggle against Zionism. Today it is Palestine, tomorrow it will beone country or another. The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, theZionists 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.”

(Expanding? Yeah, and that is why Israel has been ceding territory through negotiations and unilateral withdrawals since 1993, you dolts! –Zak)

As I said, these are just some excerpts. Read the whole for yourself, and if you doubt the authenticity of this translation, search out more. Please excuse my commentary. I deal with pain and depression via humor, or attempts at humor...Zak

Zakstradamus predicts the future

It appears the Islami-nazi fascist animals of Hamas have won a majority in the Palestinian elections. At this point, I have heard this on the radio only. In fact the BBC, which I listen to at night, wouldn’t shut the fuck up about it. Anyway, before I begin perusing the Internet and other newspapers, I want to make my own predictions, unsullied with other pundits’ ideas and forecasts about what this portends for the future. So here it goes…

The US State Department, the EU, and of course Israel, have all pledged that they will not deal with Hamas, which all view as a terrorist organization dedicated to Israel’s obliteration. However, there have been reports for months that the Europeans and elements in the State Department have been putting out feelers to the non-military wings of Hamas, despite all of the formers' recent tough talk in the wake of these elections.

But what we are seeing now will be nothing but a repeat of what we saw with the PLO back in the late 80’s (or was it early ‘90’s, I don’t recall exactly and don’t feel like looking it up). The point is this: The PLO was on the books as officially dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Although the State Department and Europeans drooled at the idea of Israel and the PLO recognizing each other and negotiating, it took some time before Arafat finally uttered the words that the PLO rejected terror and recognized Israel’s right to exist. Once that happened, Israel agreed to enter into negotiations with the representatives of the PLO, and eventually recognized the PLO. Finally this all led up to the Oslo Accords in the early ‘90’s.

As is common knowledge now, throughout the peace accords of the 1990’s, Arafat played a double game of talking peace in English, taking whatever land and weapons and money he could get from Israel and donors, and then inciting his people to violence in Arabic. Thus began the campaign of Hamas and Islamic Jihad suicide bombings, of which Arafat’s PA did little or nothing to prevent. Arafat or one of his spokesliars would sooth the West with words of peace and complaints about Israel while at the same time Palestinians were detonating themselves on the streets and busses of Israel. And this went on and on. Good cop bad cop. There was always an excuse why the PA couldn’t crack down completely on Hamas and IJ. For the PA, it was perfect: They could get the occasional chunk of land and money, and keep killing Israelis in the process. To their own people, they never stopped the incitement to violence, and it took incredible arm twisting from former President Clinton to even get the PA to change the Palestinian Covenant, which calls for Israel’s destruction.

So now we have Hamas, another Palestinian terror group with an even creepier manifesto that calls for Israel’s destruction and goes further, dabbling in every imaginable anti-Semitic stereotype and conspiracy theory ever invented—and of course tossing in shouts out to “Allah” and “Mohammad” for good religious fundamentalist effect.

Here’s what’s going to happen: A few Hamas leaders will tell the west they might be able to recognize Israel and have a cease fire of some sort. In Arabic they’ll explain to their people and fanatical friends that they can’t have a cease fire with an entity that doesn’t exist, and so it’s okay to tell the west that they recognize Israel. I’m sure they’ll find some Islamic justification for their rouse, just as Arafat used to talk about the Treaty of Hubaidiya, whereby Muhammad and the newly formed Islamic community made a treaty, which of course they broke as soon as they were strong enough to murder infidel ass. The Hamas will do the same. This way they save face.

The EU and the State Department will run with any teeny tiny pronouncement by any two-bit Hamasnick who makes any conciliatory sounding remarks, no matter how tenuous-sounding and despite the lessons of recent and ancient history.

Israel can do two things:

It can be realistic and ignore Hamas (other than figuring out good ways to kill their leaders and militants like the cockroaches they are) and continue to unilaterally withdraw from parts of the West Bank while continuing to build the fence/wall. This is because from Israel’s point of view, there is nobody to negotiate peace with now—at all. The Palestinians have said loud and clear that they will not accept an Israel in any shape or form. It’s as if we are back to 1947-48, except Israel is significantly more powerful. So what’s to talk about? Mode of Israel’s execution? Not.

Or, Israelis can elect some bleary-eyed myopic leadership whom actually take the Hamas’ bait and attempt to negotiate with the killers. Of course, this depends on whether Hamas is willing to do so much as that. They might just want to keep on killing and killing and killing, although they have abided by a ceasefire for some time now. Nevertheless, should this happen, and should Israel, the State Department and the EU begin talking with “moderate” representatives of Hamas’ “political” leadership, what we will see is a replay of the Oslo years in the 1990’s.

That means the “political” echelon negotiating with Israel will say the right things to the west, and meanwhile their military wing, the Izzadin al-Kassem—which they’ll say they have little control over—will continue to murder in conjunction with the political echelon’s negotiations. Everybody with a brain will know the two are connected, just like everybody knew Jerry Adams of the IRA was just a talking head for the “hard men of the IRA” but they’ll just go along with it, because westerners seem to think that the “process” of “peace” is what’s most important, even if the process has nothing to do with peace other than in name only. If the Israelis go along with the second tack, well, woe be to them. They will find no mercy from their western friends.

Throughout the last “Intifada” groups like the Fatah Hawks and al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades—both connected to Arafat and Mahmud Abbass’ Fatah Party—were in a race to kill Israelis with the other Islamic terrorists. Did this destroy Fatah’s credibility? Did it harm their reputation? Were they shunned by the world because of this? Hardly. Instead, pressure was put on Israel to continue to negotiate with Fatah (i.e. the PA). It will be the same negotiating with Hamas. It will be a complete reply—mark my words. Remember this posting well, because I know I’m right.

Note: I take no pleasure in being right.

Jdate over

I've officially quite Jdate. Ironically, however, I did meet somebody via jdate: A non-Jewish black girl from Chicago. She's the only one who gave me the time of day, or bothered to get to know me.

What can I do? I guess Jewish girls don't like me. I'm done with "trying" to date Jews. As long as the girls I date from now on are not religious fundamentalists of any religion, that's okay with me.
