The conflict in Gaza is not about rockets in Beersheba or a humanitarian crisis in Khan Yunis, or about killing civilians in a mosque, or Hamas use of human shields. It is about destroying a racist, genocidal group before it destroys everyone else.
One incident highlights the real issue of Israel's Gaza operation. On January 1, the IDF killed Hamas
leader Nizar Rayan and several of his wives and children.
Rayan expressed his views about the Jewish people in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic
"Allah changed disobedient Jews into apes and pigs, it is true, but he specifically said these apes and pigs did not have the ability to reproduce. So it is not literally true that Jews today are descended from pigs and apes, but it is true that some of the ancestors of Jews were transformed into pigs and apes, and it is true that Allah continually makes the Jews pay for their crimes in many different ways. They are a cursed people."
"You are murderers of the prophets and you have closed your ears to the Messenger of Allah," he said. "Jews tried to kill the Prophet, peace be unto him. All throughout history, you have stood in opposition to the word of God."
. The Jews must be exterminated. God's word declared it must be so. This is the cleaned up version of the Hamas philosophy, delivered to a Jewish interviewer. Rayan also explained the strategy behind the Hamas Hudna offer, so beloved of certain "analysts":
"The only reason to have a hudna is to prepare yourself for the final battle. We don't need 50 years to prepare ourselves for the final battle with Israel...Israel is an impossibility. It is an offense against God."
Rayan's views are not those of a tiny minority in Gaza. A sympathetic obituary published in the Guardian (see guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan/03/obituary-nizar-rayan-hamas) noted that Rayan is a "Senior Hamas leader and cleric [who was] considered a hero on the streets of Gaza." Rayan was doing no more than explaining the program of the Hamas and giving its views of the Jewish people, which are all declared in the Hamas charter and summarized with these quotes:
Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al Banna, of blessed memory).*
"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised"
"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. "
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem)."
"After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."
The essential point about the Gaza conflict then, is not proportionality, or rockets hitting Gedera, or a humanitarian crisis in Khan Yunis, or civilian casualties. There is only one real issue: a racist, genocidal group of religious fanatics want to take over the Middle East and must be stopped at all costs. This plain fact is not well understood it seems. Hosni Mubarak, President of Egypt, is not known for his sympathies to the Zionist cause. It was necessary for Mubarak to explain to EU leaders, intent on imposing a truce in Gaza, that Hamas must not be allowed to win in Gaza.. Today Gaza. Tomorrow the whole Middle East. Perhaps one day, the EU will understand what Mr. Mubarak understands.
* Hassan al Banna founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, was an active Nazi collaborator. The Hamas are direct ideological and organizational offspring of the Muslim brotherhood.

Quote:" We must expropriate gently the private property on the state assigned to us. We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it employment in our country. The property owners will come over to our side. Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly. Let the owners of the immoveable property believe that they are cheating us, selling us things for more than they are worth. But we are not going to sell them anything back.

Herzl wrote these words in his diary entry for 12 June 1895. Quoted on pages 21-22 of Righteous Victims.

Quote: " Let us not ignore the truth among ourselves .. politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves... The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country. ... Behind the terrorism [by the Arabs] is a movement, which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self sacrifice.
By: David Ben-Gurion
The quote appears on pages 141-142 of Zionism and the Palestinians. Chomsky refers to this citation on page 91 of Fateful Triangle.

Quote: "Let us approach them [the Palestinian refugees in the occupied territories] and say that we have no solution, that you shall continue to live like dogs, and whoever wants to can leave -- and we will see where this process leads. In five years we may have 200,000 less people - and that is a matter of enormous importance." End of quote
By: Moshe Dayan
Date: September 1967
A quote from Dayan speaking to the Israeli cabinet, suggesting how they should urge Gaza strip refugees to move to Jordan. This quote was cited on page 434 of Deterring Democracy. A longer version of the quote was cited in Middle East Diplomacy: Continuities and Changes
" We enthusiastically chose to become a colonial society, ignoring international treaties, expropriating lands, transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories, engaging in theft and finding justification for all these activities. Passionately desiring to keep the occupied territories, we developed two judicial systems: one - progressive, liberal - in Israel; and the other - cruel, injurious - in the occupied territories. In effect, we established an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately following their capture. That oppressive regime exists to this day.

The question of good "hasbara" for Israel always comes to my mind when I read a good article such as the one here by Ami Isserof.
Is it published anywhere else around the world in order to enlighten those who are ignorant of the real issue.

So the pigs and apes who are my ancestors did not have the ability to reproduce but yet are my ancestors? Wow! I must have been immaculately conceived!
