Hamas to build military college to train for destruction of Israel
The Jerusalem Post is reporting that terrorist group Hamas is reportedly planning the development of its own military college to be used to train military commanders for the next conflict with Israel. The report is unclear as to just when “The James E. Carter Institute for Martyrdom, Terrorist Design, and the Destruction of Israel” plans to graduate its first class.
The cynic in me is wondering just how much of the $900 million sent by President Barack Obama to the Gaza Strip will be used to fund the construction and development of the facility.
Perhaps, just as hospitals and institutes of higher learning here in the states name wings or buildings after large donors, President Obama can have his own wing, “The Barack Hussein Obama Department for the Facilitation of Radical Islamic Jihad.”
Back in late December and early January, when tensions rose in the Middle East after Hamas insisted upon hiding behind their own civilians in order to target innocent women and children in Israel, I argued that Israel must not waver in its pursuit and must not stop until the Hamas-controlled government was deposed. Personally, I wanted to see a nation with more of an international stake–such as Egypt–take temporary control, precisely for the reason that I couldn’t comprehend that idea that Hamas would suddenly realize it’s antagonistic ways like some animated villain in a Disney movie, precisely because I knew that exactly this sort of thing would happen. Here’s what I wrote on January 7, 2009:
If Israel cannot accomplish that, or if the international community does not allow them to do so, we should all shudder at the consequences Hamas was able to smuggle thousands of rockets and rocket-building materials into Gaza — with support from Iran, and with the unfettered existence of Iran’s fledgling nuclear program (again under the watchful eye, of course, of the United Nations), it is only a matter of time before Hamas smuggles in a far more devastating weapon.
Terrorists are terrorists, regardless of what Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano wants to call them. And the Global War on Terror is just that, a war, regardless of how much Barack Obama wants to temper superficial impressions in order to mollify his dangerously idyllic supporters on the left.
Israel’s failure to follow through a few months ago, combined with Obama’s thoughtless decision to send nearly $1 billion as a reward for terrorist action, sets a dangerous precedent at a time when western civilization is already handcuffed economically and on the brink of the brink of collapse. At some point, Americans, Brits and Israelis alike will pay the price for our leadership’s failure to recognize evil where it stands. Eventually, the streets in London, New York and Sderot will once again run with the blood of innocent men, women and children who just months before could only sit idly by and shake their heads at the inability of their elected officials to wake up.
