They desire death...
Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Hamas MP Fathi Hammad, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on February 29, 2008:
Fathi Hammad: [The enemies of Allah] do not know that the Palestinian people has developed its [methods] of death and death-seeking. For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry, at which women excel, and so do all the people living on this land. The elderly excel at this, and so do the mujahideen and the children. This is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen, in order to challenge the Zionist bombing machine. It is as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: "We desire death like you desire life."
I can hear in my mind the pity that such words invoke in the hearts of the fence-straddlers (the multi-culti-ratti) and other rancid Lefties: self-affirmation through self-immolation accompanied by a creeping genocide is the only way for poor suffering Palestinians to counter the great brutality of Israel's wish and so far success, in continuing to exist and prosper ...
I'm waiting for the day when Palestinian women will wake up to the realization that this Lebanese woman imparts:
... In my view, a politician in my country should serve as a pillar in our daily lives. Instead, the politician has become a fountain of curses, hatred, and threats. Morning, noon, and night, and at every moment in our lives, all he talks about is the "civil war." We no longer hear anything but this talk about a civil war. I would like to ask the politicians: Why do you want a civil war? Does this woman talking to you want a civil war? Do the women, from whose wombs men are born, want a civil war? What do men want? Do they want war? If so, they should enter the fray by themselves, and let our children be. We are not wombs that give birth for the sake of death. We give birth for the sake of life. My country does not understand this logic anymore. We, the women and our children, want life, not death.
Look at what happened in France in World War II. Who brought about stability and peace in France? It was the women, who joined the Resistance. All women joined the Resistance. A woman would say: My son and my husband went to war. It was imperative during the war. When the German armies went in, you couldn't stay at home, and say: I'm against war. Back then, there was no choice but to wage war. Instead of hiding and keeping silent, they conducted that great resistance. Today, our role is to conduct resistance.
