"The newspaper's stories emphasize the heroism of children against the cruel enemy, but also mix in other elements which can be seen time and again in Palestinian propaganda," said the group's analysis.
"For example, the story of Mihnad, illustrating three important elements in the struggle. Firstly, the link to land and trees, the second of course is the heroism of children against soldiers, and the third is the strong nationalism which finds expression in a Palestinian flag fluttering in the wind. The plot of the story describes how Israeli soldiers demand that Mihnad pulls down a Palestinian flag flying above an olive tree. Mihnad refuses and does not give in even when he is shot at. When they force him to climb up the tree, Mihnad cries, 'Long live my land in freedom; long live the flag.' The soldiers kill Mihnad in reaction, and he is left clutching the flag, drenched in his own blood."

Doesnt take much for these apologists to crawl out of the woodwork now doesnt it!
What i am saying is why blame Hamas? Islam is under threat from these new-age imperialists and they are going all out to protect their own faith.
Until the new-age imperialists leading America today learn to get along with the rest of the world and treat people equitably and fairly, organisations like Hamas will continue to come up.
The solution is to evolve a world based on equality and respect for people of all beliefs and faiths. The Anglo-Saxon brigade continues to hit out at Islam and destroy it from within only to get at their oil.
Who propped up Saddam and built him into the ogre that he is today? And who continues to prop up tinpot dictators till this day?
And most importantly, which country has started this vile practice of using Terrorism and "Freedom Struggles" as an instrument of its foreign policy?
The people at Hamas, (as do others) see through this game and raise the banner of revolt and so they become evil?
I am not condoning the suicide bombings. What i am saying is, that while you may condemn the means they have adopted to free themselves from imperialism, stop and think for a moment that they have reasons for what they are doing.

My apologies Delta-flyer, I was referring to the action by Hamas
No need to apologize, Tbar, I just wanted to make sure before I flame you (just kidding). I'm glad you're on our side.
Indianguy....I am not sure what you mean by "new age imperialists leading America". If we were truly "imoerialists" we would have occupied all the Arab lands that can produce oil. Is it the fault of the US that allow the Arabs to sell us oil, giving them unprecendented wealth and prosperity, and all they do is spend it on trying to destroy us?
And how are we to blame for "propping up Saddam"? The fact that we worked with him in the 80's proves that we were just trying to practice what you call "respect for people of all beliefs and faiths." At the time we felt Iran was a greater threat than Iraq. How were we to know that he will turn against us? The US has worked with many countries' dictators because that's all they have, while trying to urge them toward democracy. I think the US has done a lot of good in the 20th. century, perhaps it's time we collect our marbles and go home.
The people of Hamas do not "see though this game" as you mention, they are just a bunch of murdering thugs, as evidenced by the article I posted.

Cedarjet, I disagree with you......If the Palestinians had accepted the UN mandate in 1948, they could have livd the past 50+ years in prosperity, just as the Israelis have. Although Palestinians have never had their own nation before, they could have had it by now, next to Israel. Instead, they figured they can throw the Jews out in short order with the help of their 150 million Muslim "friends" in the region, and take Israel for themselves. However, that didn't quite work out as expected.
So, based on past history, and examples such as the article I had posted, it's not TNNH who is the racist idiot, but your darling friends in Palestine, and those who support them.

Sick of all this pro Israeli propaganda from Israeli sites. I could say this but not even lookin into the site. Just by another link on the page provided by Delta-flyer. Heading of the link "Are 'jihadists' infiltrating U.S. military?"
Makes me laugh only. Forget my comments on this.
