Hamas To Convert Synagogue to Weapons Museum

From LGF:
Incredibly vile behavior from the terrorist gang the world is trying desperately to promote to a “political entity:” Hamas To Convert Synagogue to Weapons Museum. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)

WASHINGTON - Emboldened by Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza and part of the West Bank, Hamas yesterday announced its plan to turn a synagogue in Netzarim into a museum that would display weapons employed by the terrorist group’s members against Israeli civilians.

UPDATE at 9/22/05 6:54:08 pm:

I’m reading this again, and wondering where the hell is the world’s outrage about this? Newsweek prints a false rumor that a Koran was dunked in a toilet, and the entire planet goes nuts. Hamas announces that they’re going to turn a Jewish house of worship into a memorial to mass murder ... and the silence is absolutely deafening.

Not much more I can add to that except to point out that the Gaza pullout has produced exactly the kind of response that appeasement always produces, but never intends.

More "emboldened" behavior from Hamas via
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel launched a "crushing" retaliation Saturday against Hamas in the Gaza Strip with deadly airstrikes and troops massed at the border, after militants fired 35 rockets at Israeli towns -- their first major attack since the Gaza pullout.

The escalation threatened to derail a shaky seven-month-old truce and squashed hopes that Israel's ceding the coastal strip to the Palestinians would invigorate peacemaking.
Is anyone honestly surprised by this? Hamas immediately responded to the pullout by celebrating a "victory of the bomb," and promising to continue their bloody campaign until they have "reclaimed all the land of Palestine." The pullout has done nothing but affirm that terror works.

The duplicity of the world is plain to those that are willing see it.

Hamas and other terrorist gangs are mass murdering thugs and yet the Jews are the evil ones. Go figure.

Suicide bombers get stopped before they kill and the world moans about the Jews cruelty. The bombers succeed and the world sniffs and says the Jews had it coming for 'oppressing' the poor Palestinians.

Last night my students learned how the Inquisition forced Galileo to recant what he and anyone else could see with their own eyes. Things haven't changed in the 21st century. It's not "correct" to observe that Jews haven't done anything wrong and are entitled to their homeland. I hope that someday in the future people have the perspective to look back on this as being just as insane and horrible as the Inquisition.
