Hamas comes out to the light
In an effort to increase their popularity and reinvent themselves, Hamas decided to reveal the names and ranks in the military wing leadership. The shadowy military wing of Hamas went public Saturday, revealing the names of its top commanders and outlining the history and increasing sophistication of its attacks against Israel in the latest salvo in the battle for credit over Israel's withdrawal from Gaza. Of course, they are so brave that they didn't release those names until the Israelis evacuated Gaza. That's what I call bravery! Don't you? Anyway, they are up to no good, again! The Islamic group insists its fighters drove Israel out, while Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas credits his nonviolent approach. The jockeying for public opinion ahead of Palestinian legislative elections next year could have lasting implications for the future makeup of the Palestinian Authority and the fate of nascent peace efforts with Israel. Ok, let's be honest here: It wasn't either of those 2 clown groups. Sharon withdrew because of his deal with the US and his own strategy for Israel. But whatever.. In comments posted on the Web site, Deif warned that Hamas would use force if Palestinian police tried to disarm or arrest members of the group. "We will respond to any attack, whether from the Authority or from the Israelis," Deif was quoted as saying. Deif also said that Izzedine al Qassam would not disband and would continue to develop weapons, including rockets. Hassan Yousef, a Hamas leader in the West Bank , said Izzedine al Qassam came forward "to show the role of resistance in liberating Gaza." Alluding to the competition with Abbas, he said: "They (the militants) felt that there are some people who wanted to downplay the role of the resistance." Ok, you know what? Screw you Hassan Yousef. The resistance did shit. The only reason why the Israelis didn't kill all of your sorry asses is because it would look bad. However, in an outright war or conflict, you know you are doomed to lose. Everyone with half a brain knows you would lose. Then why the shit-talking? Are you crazy or just stupid? Do you so deeply want to continue this conflict and increase the misery of your people? Cause, you know, that's what will end up happening! Ugh, whatever. I said it once, and I will say it a thousand times: Hamas has got to go.
