In response to the naive and simplistic ‘free Palestine’ movement i’m going to start the ‘Free Charlie Manson’ campaign to illustrate that Hamas is demonstrably and evidently a criminally insane terrorist organization with an agenda, in writing, to kill all the Jews of Israel and commit genocide. It’s in their charter for fucks sake. Honestly people are just not paying attention and seem to have a cherry picked view of history that is obviously anti Jew and based in fantasy, disinformation, a skewed concept of reality and a most superficial/revisionist view of history.
Hamas is basically gaslighting Israel at this time, accusing them of everything that Hamas is, in fact, guilty of. That’s the way psychopaths work and they are that, as evidenced by their own texts and videos.
Many people’s perceptions are skewed by propaganda, anti semitism in the mainstream and especially in fringe media. Their opinions are clearly informed by pathetic levels of ignorance of history and a disregard of any evidence that contradicts what they have been indoctrinated to believe and/or what is currently trendy and popular in the public zeitgeist.
Here’s an example of propagandistic indoctrination of the the youth by Hamas. If you are not aware of this Hamas produced TV show, Tomorrow’s Pioneers I suggest you educate your self because it really reveals the mind set of Hamas and Islamists in general. I’ll point out the Islamists are at war in 13 different countries currently and responsible for horrific acts of terrorism in all of the western secular democracies that have offered them safe haven after they escaped from their own repressive theocratic regimes.
It’s just one example but it’s a blatant one and shows clearly that Hamas’ ethos is criminally insane, delusional, atrocious, racist and murderous. It also illustrates how Hamas wants to create martyrs of the women, children and elders of the Palestine. Be it noted that the Palestinian authority actually monetarily awards Palestinians for committing acts of terrorism and murder against Jews, thus incentivizing them to do so. If this is what you are supporting Hamas then i suggest you check yourself and examine where your ideas came from.
Islam is the most repressive, regressive, coercive and toxic religion in the world currently and serves to perpetuate hatred, violence and seemingly insurmountable cultural divides. All religions are based upon demonstrably and evidently false precepts but only Islam is at war in 13 different countries and are responsible for the bulk of reprehensible acts of terror all over the world. They have a special bee in their bonnet for democracy, secularism and actual freedom including freedom of the press, freedom of expression, free speech, women’s rights and freedoms, the rights of sexual and other minorities. Their end game, their goal, is NOT freedom; it is the installation of a ‘Caliphate’ i.e a religious theocracy which severely limits freedom of speech, free press, women’s rights, sexual freedom, equal rights in law for all, everything the civil rights movement fought for and eventually won in the west in the past century. They are, in short, anti freedom as evidenced by the new caliphate in Afghanistan and what they have done with that, how that has reared it’s ugly head to suppress, oppress, brutalize and indoctrinate by disinformation and coercion their own country men, women and children. Islamic countries have the WORST record of human rights and genocide targeting minorities and ‘infidels’. They appear to want to take civilization back to the dark ages.
Islam is at war with reality and with modernity, at war with what we in the secular democracies call decency, sanity and tolerance. Islam is the least tolerant of other religious beliefs and acts upon that intolerance which is laid out in their Quran and many and various hadiths.
Here are some quotes from the Quran, that text that Muslims live by.
“kill the disbelievers wherever Muslims find them” (2:191)

Allah and his messenger announce that it is acceptable for Muslims to go back on promises (treaties) and obligations with pagans (unbelievers) and make war on them whenever they find themselves strong enough to do so (9:3)

Allah tells Muslims to “fight the unbelievers” and “He will punish them by the Muslims hands, cover them with shame and help Muslims (to victory) over them” (9:14)
The Qur’an prohibits a Muslim from befriending a non-believer even if that non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim (9:23)

He has made the Jihad mandatory and warns Muslims that “Unless they go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish the Muslims with a grievous penalty, and put others in their place” (9:39)
He promises Muslims that fight for His cause, whether they slay or are slain, they will return to the garden of Paradise (9:111)
“murder them (non-believers) and treat them harshly” (9:123)
The Qur’an instructs Muslims to be disobedient towards the disbelievers and their governments and strive against the unbelievers with great endeavour (25:52)
Allah advises Muslims to “strike off the heads of the disbelievers” and after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives” (47:4)
Although Muslims are asked to be compassionate amongst each other, they have to be “harsh with unbelievers, their Christian and Jewish and Atheist neighbours and colleagues” (48:29)
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”
