Hillary: Leave them in their misery

BettyJean Kling

Still waiting for Hillary to step into this ring again? Hasn’t she done enough for her country? I hate to say I told you so – BUT I told you so.

The Democratic party will never ever let Hillary run- if they were ever going to – they would have let her have the seat she won in 2008 instead of hand it to what’s his name like they did. I am not going to belabor that fiasco again you were all there and either you can appreciate the truth or nothing I can say will allow you to think clearly so I am not about to waste good energy on an idiot.

Having said that- I also said don’t hold your breath waiting for her to run in 2012 or 2016 because the Dems will never let this woman – or maybe any woman run. I said it then and I will say it clearly again – if you are a Democrat who thinks that party gives a damn about you – you are a bigger jackass then the Dems are!

I Knew then as I know now that Hillary was the best hope of having a women President of her stature, a stellar candidate and yet – I was devastated that she bent over and took it with a smile instead of shoving it up theirs. Instead she took the SOS job and kept her nose clean and performed perfectly as the asshole near destroyed our country. And the nation began to chant for the woman who had actually won the people’s vote.  Even the Dems themselves began to ask – what did we do?

Chatter about a possible second Clinton run at the presidency ramped up after the Democrats’ serious losses in the mid-term congressional elections, which were widely interpreted as a referendum on Obama’s first two years in office.

Alas-the chatter scared the powers so  the same crooks who took her out in the first place – they who could never  never – just as I said in the first place- they were never going to let her rise— and so theylaid the fram work well and on que they framed her and there comes WikiLeaks to discredit her and take her out before anyone get’s any firm ideas.  Has our dear Hillary learned yet that she should have stuck it to the Bastards in 2008? Maybe her best reply to this is to quit by 1/1/11. That would pay them back in spades- do it Hillary.  Do it! They plan to harm you from here on out anyway- I knew it all along!

Hillary Clinton said Friday she would not run for president and her current job as secretary of state was probably her last public position and she would focus on women’s advocacy work after leaving office.

“If you look at what is still happening to women in many parts of the world it is tragic and terrible,” Clinton said.

“I feel very lucky because of my parents and then my education, the opportunities that I’ve had, so I would like to continue working to improve lives for others.”

Clinton, who Obama brought in as secretary of state after their hard-fought contest for the 2008 Democratic nomination, noted that people were now being given the chance to constantly reinvent themselves — something she has done repeatedly.

“Most of us will live longer than our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents … We will have a chance to do different things in our life,” Clinton said, adding that the one thing she had learned was “it’s not so much what life throws at you, it’s how you respond.”

“I’ve had a life that’s been filled with all kinds of opportunities and my fair share of challenges but I’m a very lucky person,” Clinton said.

Rise Hillary rise- screw them – you were always too good for the likes of these people. Go where you can do the most good and where you will be appreciated. You are loved and admired by many and to those who don’t appreciate you– well let them eat cake!

Hillary soldiered on – no one can say she did not go all the way – she never quit – she never gave up- never gave out- and never let them see her sweat but – they used and abused her and all the while perhaps we thought if she paid her dues — SHE WOULD GET TO BE PRESIDENT?

 I HOPE WE ALL LEARNED THAT YOU CANNOT PLAY THEIR GAME AND WIN. We win when we set the rules and from here on in – we set the rules!

Thank you Hillary for teaching us a lesson some of us will never forget- I am so sorry you paid this price but if some of us learn from it – it will not be in vain. You are the strongest woman I have ever had the please to personally meet, I am humbled to have know the woman- the legend- Hillary Rodam Clinton.

Now go and finish your real work with women and children and teach them well.

The final piece of this series will include some video, some ads and a list of the links to the previous 11 articles. I hardly think I will stop here.

Then we have Debbie whose boss actually pimps her out in the following add by giving
Dealers her phone number and inviting the reader that he can actually call and talk to her. 

How’s this for a quit smoking campaign- I remember the one which claimed it was a

great idea to give your honey a kiss instead of lighting up – but can anyone tell me

exactly what is this supposed to be saying?

Sexualizing America 11 of 12: End the Ambivalence

BettyJean Kling

At The Majority United we urge you to End the Ambivalence!

A young woman using the blog name Tamara recently commented on a blog post entitled Frats Invite Sluts, Bitches; Women Accept Degradation. Why? as follows

“I feel like maybe women don’t see how much they are being devalued unless something big happens…To be honest my freshman year at a four year college was an extreme learning experience, all I wanted was to be in a sorority just like my friends. Why do young girls tend to want to be in a sorority? Because fraternity boys want to date sorority girls. The dorms were coed floors and on our floor were guys from the basket ball team and lacrosse team. Looking back I wonder why girls were apt to do the guys laundry, to help them with the homework (if not do it for them), to even clean there dorm rooms. Were they just being helpful or were they working above and beyond to get male attention only to be used and thrown away later. Why did we not see that the attention we were getting from guys was disrespectful , I guy saying wow you have a big rack or I wanna see those girls make out was disrespectful . Unfortunately I remember all too well a friend crying after sleeping with a guy on the basketball team and later her being deemed a slut who sleeps around. Just in one year there were many encounters that were similar to this, always ending in the guy being the man and the women being trashy. Maybe younger women growing up in a generation that for the most part has always had rights, we fail to see what we don’t have.”

I don’t know this young woman – I have no way of reaching out to her, she is just someone brave enough to leave a comment on a blog. But If I could I would hug her and I would ask her to join us and take our series all over the campus and educate the gals telling them- we are sending a message that men are ready willing and able to hear and accept but we are not getting their message until it is too late!

If you were a guy what would these ads say to you? In fact as a female what the hell are these ads saying to you? Wouldn’t you agree if we keep doing things the same way and the results keep increasing we must be doing it right. Right if they are increasing in the direction we are heading that is? Right, but for whom? Is this what makes your boat float?

Look carefully, her nipple is visible as is pubic hair from her upper leg. She is wearing a child’s jewelry,
and suggestively licking a lollipop. Her frame and size is childlike yet adult like. This is a Lee shoot.

Here are some of the other one’s that Lee had to select from the ones they chose are marked Lee!
Imagine the degradation this model is about to face thinking she is doing a shoot for the famous Lee.

Do you think Lee had this in mind? Bet he didn’t turn this one in!

Think she is enjoying this as much as her smile says? It stops when we say it stops.


You hit the nail right on the head. Thank you for being so honest. Our baby boys and girls have been raised on this swill for the past 30 some odd years. From the moment they are born both see images of females as sex objects depicted for the sheer enjoyment of males. This produces a false idea in both their minds so that they may be told one thing by the bombardment is some great and insidious both come to accept it as fact. Some will then try to convince us that we are born that way- not so we are brainwashed.

He has been taught she is a piece of meat and will do anything to get a man – and if she proves him right – he gets his piece of meat. She has been taught to get the man she must cater to his every fantasy and need. She does whatever it takes to attract man and then caters to his every fantasy and need. Man gets laid woman gets the man.

But in the end only one wins- man gets laid – she doesn’t get to keep the man. Man is soon lured away by another woman who has him in her crosshairs and ready to cater to his every fantasy and need. Keep in mind – he has been programmed both by nature and by media that he is a rooster who needs to take care of the whole hen house. You can’t blame him – this is exactly what he is programmed to respond to. What we can do is stop playing the damned game.

It takes two as you clearly pointed out! Thank you for your comment – how refreshing to have a young woman willing to open up like that. You inspired this issue.

Sexualizing America 10 of 12: Pedophiles Dream

BettyJean Kling

Pedophilia has become rampant in our society. Elizabeth Smart spent 3 days on the stand reliving her 9 month nightmare with her accused kidnapper Brian David Mitchell a pedophile who raped her daily. [CLICK HERE to read Elizabeth Smart’s entire testimony]

John Walsh has been hunting “America’s Most Wanted” fugitives since 1988 when his show debuted on Fox. He goes undercover Saturday in Southeast Asia to investigate the Sex Trafficking of Cambodian Children. Walsh says he was shocked by what he saw, including a madam who offered his group Children as young as 6 and 7 years old for Sex. Walsh says Western Pedophiles travel east to Cambodia as international Sex tourists, looking to have Sex with Children.

Just this week Amazon became embroiled in a great controversy because of a book clearly for pedophiles.  From Amazon: The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure After 3000 comments, customer outrage and threats of boycotts, Amazon.com removed “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure” from its Kindle eBook.

Clearly  and outrage is better than nothing but there need to be more outrage and we are missing what is right under our noses.

They started with voluptuous women liberated them from their kitchens and aprons and pearls. We hiked up their skirts, lowered their necklines and instead of depicting them serving pancakes and coffee we glamorized them smoking and drinking with the boys after a day at the secretary pool. Eventually we had them slithering down automobiles then around beer bellied unshaved louts or in hot tubs serving every man’s every whim and fantasy.

Slowly – ever so slowly women were demanded to starve themselves to become thinner and thinner , younger and younger – pouting like children making that a sexual allure and now….

Look carefully– her nipple is visible – maybe pubic hair too-

Whores, Witches, Wing nuts, and Bitches running for public office

By: BettyJean Kling

Update* Join us Wed. 10/20 at 8pm EST-we will have an open mic discussion on this topic: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freemenow/2010/10/21/the-majority-united

Originally dedicated to Geri, Hillary, and Sarah on 11/12/08, I have updated and am rededicating this to Meg, Nikki, Sharon, Christine and all the other women suffering the sting of misogyny. Men are not asked their measurement; they are not called sexist names then indignantly told it doesn’t rise to the level of blacks being called niggers. It most certainly does to us! Women are still enslaved by these words, still trafficked, humiliated for working in a man’s world although they protect our streets, put out fires, make decisions from the bench and damn near make up the entire population of the world.”

We can do better ladies and it starts here with you and me saying enough and get The Majority United! Enough women against women for party politics sake!

Twisted Logic Celebration
Posted on November 12, 2008 by freemenow

Tears were shed in the streets, throngs celebrating in Times Square could be heard from 1st. Ave., the media was in a frenzy, Obama supporters were in heaven, black leaders were lined up to tell us how proud they finally were of America (Michelle was thinking it to herself no doubt) and headlines read “History” was made on Nov. 4th 2008 in America because a black was elected to the White House. I was in tears too but I scratched my head and asked what the hell is so historic about placing yet another man in office?

Hold your celebrations folks. We are not there yet- history was not made – we did not overcome- and Martin Luther King’s dream was not realized. Wasn’t it King who said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”? Weren’t some of those little children daughters?  

So now all of a sudden skin color became the factor that everyone is judging how we make history? Was it because his face was black and for a short blip in our history blacks were kept as slaves? Or maybe some would say we are celebrating a black man reminds us of slavery and somehow this partially black man with no slavery background transcends that dark part of our history? Well that may be quite a stretch but we are still not there yet!   

Women’s slavery has yet to be resolved – it is not a blip in history — it is a fact of a life for woman, and it’s been going on since the beginning of time. Women have been ignored, blamed, talked down to,  laughed at, held  back, paid less, worked harder, kept down, smacked around, humiliated, degraded, victimized, beaten, raped and are  murdered at the hands of men — their own husbands and fathers and are still daily victims right now.

This so-called historic Black candidate was not a product of the civil rights abuses of this country; he did not suffer mistreatment, during his candidacy as did both the female candidates. So I ask again what was so euphoric that millions were crying – some for joy and some from the release resulting of shedding their white guilt. Guilt they willingly accepted as their responsibility and obligated the rest of us to carry with along with them while they turned a blind eye to those of us who have been enslaved since the beginning of time and who were left behind yet again.

No- I maintain as do up to one half on this nations citizenry who is taxed yet not fully represented, history will not be made until every enslaved, mistreated or otherwise unrepresented citizen is equally represented, until Jeremiah Wright does not call anyone a nigger, until no women is ever again called a cunt, a bitch or a whore, until women support other women whether they fully agree on every issue or not and until a woman is elected as president of the United States of America.

Then let there be dancing in the streets and celebrations in every home and tears of joy to celebrate a truly historic accomplishment to be proud of.

Instead those of you who stand there with tears in your eyes as if you accomplished some great feat you damned so-called civil rights leader hypocrites! Civil rights include women’s rights — human rights!

Sexualizing America 5 of 12

BettyJean Kling

I have been called on the carpet more than once for a comment taken as an assault on women. I would like to try to clear this up today not just with my words but with pictures – you can’t deny. I have said over and over we are raising our children – both our sons and our daughters to believe our females are objects! Specifically sex objects and lower than human sexual toys at that.

Now you may say – I teach my children better than that. I know- so do I but not everyone does and your child may be a victim of someone who doesn’t. I have a daughter who brains were blow out by a guy who had no regard for her or her sister. He bludgeoned one’s head in with a hammer and shot the other in the face with a shotgun.

Statistics show that nearly 5 women a day are killed by men they love and trust. Untold numbers are beaten, 1 in 4 are date raped in school and the women have come to expect this and probably think they deserve it. They are brainwashed by the media to believe it. Males likewise are brainwashed by the media to think it is acceptable. Pornography is no longer six – it is barbarian torture.

Liberal women have given in to the male marketing and sexualization of women in order to diminish them into sexual objects not to be taken seriously and to allow them to be used and abused. My entire Sexualizing America series is based on that thesis. Glamour – as posited is one thing but sexualized, demoralized and dehumanized is another.

Men are rarely seen sexualized to the demeaning degree as are women and those who are — are certainly not taken seriously and allowed positions of power. Look what they did to Levi Johnson. They took his clothes off and turned him into a joke. Pictured here is the self described hottest reporter alive, and we saw how they treated her compared to how they treat other lady reporters who go into the locker rooms. You might now want to admit it ladies but I would say she asked for it compared to the beautiful and appealing Erin Andrews
did not advertise herself as hot or stick her wares into the camera!

They called Hillary and Sarah a Cunt and a Bitch but no one called Obama a Prick or a Bastard. He was called good looking, and even sexy but never in a sexually derogatory way. They did not place him on a cover in a bikini like a piece of meat, instead he was portrayed as Superman and described as “This is what a Feminist look like” by Ms. Magazine. Most men are taken seriously, allowed to apply for any post or government position and are not sexualized and degraded yet liberal women seem to feel that it is submissive not to allow their bodies to be exploited. I don’t get that. To truly be equal they ought to be able to get to the top without having to use their bodies – just as men do – that would be equal. Instead women are sold ideas to be equal they must degrade themselves. To be equal ladies do it the same way every other successful person does it !

Let’s think about this! How many men have been in power who have used sexuality to get there? None –that I can think of!

Now how many women have been in power? Substantially fewer! How many used sex to get there? None that I can think of!

Common sense tells me if more men are in power and they do not allow themselves to be sexualized – sexualizing oneself does not lead to power!

Common sense tells me women are objectified and sexualized by the men in power and they are not in power so sexualizing oneself does not lead to power and certainly not to EQUALITY which I have already stated there is no indication leads to power!!!

Bear with me on this – if Men have achieved power without use of sexualization and the few women who have achieved power have not allowed themselves to be sexualized, doesn’t it seem reasonable to deduce women don’t have to reduce themselves to sexual objects to achieve equality to be powerful or to be liberated. We have been brainwashed – No – we are not asking for it if we are beaten and/or raped- I am not by any means blaming the victim. I am blaming us for not raising women’s standard in the eyes of us all . Look at the ads- is this how we want to see females portrayed? Is this what we want in from of our babies eyes from the minute they are born? Have you really noticed these ads yourself? Have you thought about the rise in the defamation of females in music?

Now tell me what is wrong with the way powerful women visually conduct themselves? Did you ever see Hillary, Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merckle, Queen Noor, Michelle Obama, Princess Di, Queen Rania, etc. etc. ever dress like sex objects? How do our Court justices dress? How does any powerful woman dress?

We have been sold one hell of a line of goods – think about it. They sell us this idea then berate us for doing it. What- is the first thing they accuse women of being? We have lost all creditability. Our liberated women will not stand up for our conservative women nor will our conservative women stand up for our libs. We are a divided country. We are fighting like cats and thus we all lose!

Look at the ads, that I will be showing in my series Sexualizing America 1-12. Look what they are doing to our children, look what they are doing to our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, we are not just sex objects – we are objects of scorn. Look at the ads then look at these powerful women and tell me what is wrong with this picture? Tell me why all women should not get this and unite to fix it?

The ads below show you how we are hurting both boys and girls and how they look at themselves and each other . This is not cute – this is dangerous- if you think it is cute – there is something very wrong and I do not want your influencing America’s children! Those of you who agree with me – had better get with it – NOW! I expect comments and many of them!

Somebody please tell me what the hell this LEGO’s ad is about?


Advertising is a pervasive influence on children and adolescents. Young people view more than 40 000 ads per year on television alone and increasingly are being exposed to advertising on the Internet, in magazines, and in schools. This exposure may contribute significantly to childhood and adolescent obesity, poor nutrition, and cigarette and alcohol use. Media education has been shown to be effective in mitigating some of the negative effects of advertising on children and adolescents.

Several European countries forbid or severely curtail advertising to children; in the United States, on the other hand, selling to children is simply “business as usual.”1 The average young person views more than 3000 ads per day on television (TV), on the Internet, on billboards, and in magazines.2 Increasingly, advertisers are targeting younger and younger children in an effort to establish “brand-name preference” at as early an age as possible.3 This targeting occurs because advertising is a $250 billion/year industry with 900 000 brands to sell,2 and children and adolescents are attractive consumers: teenagers spend $155 billion/year, children younger than 12 years spend another $25 billion, and both groups influence perhaps another $200 billion of their parents’ spending per year.4,5 Increasingly, advertisers are seeking to find new and creative ways of targeting young consumers via the Internet, in schools, and even in bathroom stalls.1

Research has shown that young children—younger than 8 years—are cognitively and psychologically defenseless against advertising.69 They do not understand the notion of intent to sell and frequently accept advertising claims at face value.10 In fact, in the late 1970s, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) held hearings, reviewed the existing research, and came to the conclusion that it was unfair and deceptive to advertise to children younger than 6 years.11 What kept the FTC from banning such ads was that it was thought to be impractical to implement such a ban.11 However, some Western countries have done exactly that: Sweden and Norway forbid all advertising directed at children younger than 12 years, Greece bans toy advertising until after 10 PM, and Denmark and Belgium severely restrict advertising aimed at children.12

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

Give me one good reason for these ads? Sex sells? If so what is sexy about women being captured enslaved or bruised? Tell me who is buying these products- they are very expensive products and these are very expensive ads- – these is what we are force feeding our citizens – our children are getting bombarded with these images. Haven’t you seen them? They are in magazines in Dr. offices- in the newspapers, on bus and subway walls. Your kids have seen them – they know all these makers – every one!

What are they selling and why are they selling it this way and why are they spending this much to do it? And why are our females spending so much to buy it? Why?

Because they are used to it – they have been raised on it – they know no other way. We have failed them – both the girls and the boys. Just as women under Sharia law allow themselves to be covered from head to toes and to be beaten and treated as animals – and just as their husbands beat them and treat them like dogs our women expect to be treated like this and our men expect to react like this. It is our fault- we have raised our children to accept this as normal!

Look at these ads – is this normal to you? When did we stop having any respect for ourselves in this country? When did we lower our standards this low?


Why is this woman's face bruised to sell a purse? And why is it wrapped around the head of her naked body?


Why is this women bound and gagged and this is total living? for whom- her captors?

And what is this supposed to be selling and to whom? What a degrading ad- what woman is buying a purse  that depocts her as a horse ith a bit in her mouth? 

Barely old enough to be out of softball practice or a teen bedroom - he soon tires of sex games in favor of Game Boy and can't even un glue long enough to release her or pay attention that she wants loose? ?Is she free to even ask?


So what pray tell are they selling here that warrents this scene?




A picture is worth a thousand words . I have thousands of these pictures – My photo essay will be 12 parts and have 200 photos. By that time- you should be convinced that we must unite and mobilize against this outrage! We are not lower than animals- We deserve respect- but before we can ask for it – we must respect ourselves. Think about that statment!

Liberal women’s groups fail again: Shame on you!

BettyJean Kling

 Update- 8/12/10 10:38- NH has 2 idiot dems who are sexists !

 A New Hampshire Democrat has quit the state legislature after cracking a joke on Facebook about Sarah Palin’s death.

Rep. Timothy Horrigan of Durham posted a comment Wednesday that a “dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one” and she “is all about her myth & if she was dead she cdn’t commit any more gaffes.”

Horrigan apologized Thursday and resigned. He is also discontinuing his re-election campaign.
Horrigan is not to be confused with another New Hampshire Democrat, state House candidate Keith Halloran, who posted to Facebook that he wished Palin and her daughter’s ex-fiance, Levi Johnston, were aboard the downed plane that claimed the life of former Republican Senator Ted Stevens.

NH Candidate hits new low: wishes Palin dead! Visit: www.KeithHalloran-NewHampshire.com

I’m waiting… tick tick tick. Where are the women’s groups? Tick tick tick- this is a new low for any candidate of any party! The vitriol coming from the Democratic Party towards women since the 2008 primary has completely been disregarded by the so-called women’s groups.

“Just wish Sarah and Levy (sic) were on board,” wrote Keith Halloran, a Democratic candidate for Cheshire County House District 7, referencing Palin and Levi Johnston, the on-again, off-again boyfriend of her daughter.

I have called them out over and over and over again to no avail. They should have been on this and every other occasion the first to scream foul instead they will only be heard when they are shamed into it!

Well you are being shamed again! Jehmu Greene ,  NOW, and whoever is running Women Count- obviously only Liberal women, (except Hillary) abortion and same sex marriage count! Shame on YOU for failing to care about ALL women’s rights! Let me remind you yet one more time you have no right to call yourselves National Women’s groups because you do not serve ALL women. You are a sham and a shame.

“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. John F. Kennedy

For the record- I demand to know what is going to be done about this Keith Halloran whose web page claims:

Keith Halloran supports NH Governor John LYNCH in our shared respect for New Hampshire’s history & traditions, an emphasis on non-partisan and fiscally responsible approaches to governing New Hampshire today, and targeting priorities for building and safeguarding New Hampshire’s future.

Equality and Justice for ALL

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

I was recently asked how I can justify my claim to be for Equality and Justice for ALL and yet protest the 911 Mosque.

My answer is simple. We cannot tolerate the Islamization of America because it is a manifestation of a radically intolerant belief system that is incompatible with the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Islam is not a religion alone but an organization dedicated to take over the world and rule by Sharia Law and its fundamental components are committed to condemn to death any who will not follow those laws.

Our Constitution guarantees us under the first amendment;

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Clearly, the goal of Islam to force their religion or laws on America is unable to coexist with our freedom of religion rights.

So long as we cannot depend on equality, justice and fairness from these people, so long as they have no intention of following our Constitution, so long as they intend to force laws and religion on our people and a dress code on female citizens, so long as they intend to impose FGM on their female babies– they are a threat to our life liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Finally, these people and those who would assist them will go to any lengths, including but not limited to lying, cheating, stealing, murder and worse to achieve their goal. I submit the following pieces evidence of injustice and inequality of reporting of facts as exhibit 1 for your perusal.

Reuters Brings Fauxtography to the Gaza Flotilla

Posted: 07 Jun 2010 10:59 PM PDT

News service, Reuters is back to its old tricks.  You may remember during the second Lebanese war Reuters was caught making news pictures look worse than they were with a little touch of Photo Shop For example this picture of the aftermath of an Israeli air strike appeared this way when distributed  via AP…

But this way when published via Reuters

Reuters is now doctoring its pictures from the violence aboard the Guerrilla Flotilla.  For example, this picture appeared in a Turkish Newspaper.  The guy on the ground in green is one of the Israeli commandos. Notice the red circle I added. It shows one of the terrorists on the flotilla boat holding a knife

Now here is the same picture as first released by Reuters. Notice that they cropped out the terrorist’s knife?

CAMERA contacted the Reuters editor about the cropped photograph in which the knife in the hand of a Mavi Marmara passenger was cut out, and Reuters replaced the cropped photo with the original.
In the meanwhile, Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs has uncovered a second Reuters image in which a knife and blood are cropped out.  This image appeared on the website of the
IHH terrorists.
Notice the two red squares I added on the right side of the picture. One shows a knife in the hand of one of the terrorists and the bloody hand of an Israeli soldier. The one on the bottom right shows the blood of the soldier who was dragged to the ground after being stabbed.

Who is Hamas?

Hamas in Arabic means Zeal. Hamas is an acronym of the Arabic phrase حركة
الاسلامية, or Harakat al-Muqāwama al-Islāmiyya or “Islamic Resistance Movement”.

Hamas combines Palestinian nationalism with Islamic fundamentalism. Its founding charter commits the group to the destruction of Israel, the replacement of the PA with an Islamist state on the West Bank and Gaza, and to raising “the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.”

Hamas is the largest and most influential Palestinian militant movement. In January 2006, the group won the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) general legislative elections, defeating Fatah, the party of the PA’s president, Mahmoud Abbas, and setting the stage for a power struggle. Since attaining power, Hamas has continued its refusal to recognize the state of Israel, leading to crippling economic sanctions. Historically, Hamas has sponsored an extensive social service network. The group has also operated a terrorist wing, carrying out suicide bombings and attacks using mortars and short-range rockets. Hamas has launched attacks both in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and inside the pre-1967 boundaries of Israel.

Hamas grew out of the Muslim Brotherhood, a religious and political organization founded in Egypt with branches throughout the Arab world. Beginning in the late 1960s, Hamas’s founder and spiritual leader, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, preached and did charitable work in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, both of which were occupied by Israel following the 1967 Six-Day War. In 1973, Yassin established al-Mujamma’ al-Islami (the Islamic Center) to coordinate the Muslim Brotherhood’s political activities in Gaza. Yassin founded Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood’s local political arm in December 1987, following the eruption of the first intifada, a Palestinian uprising against Israeli control of the West Bank and Gaza. Hamas published its official charter in 1988, moving decidedly away from the Muslim Brotherhood’s ethos of “nonviolence”.

The first Hamas suicide bombing took place in April 1993. Five months later, Yasir Arafat, then the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), and Yitzhak Rabin, then-prime minister of Israel, sealed the Oslo accords—an Israeli-Palestinian peace pact that eventually unraveled. Rabin was assassinated by an Israeli right-wing fanatic in November 1995. Arafat died in November 2004.

In July 2009, Khaled Meshaal said Hamas was willing to cooperate with the United States (WSJ) on promoting a resolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Hamas, he said, would accept a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders provided Palestinian refugees be allowed to return to Israel and East Jerusalem be recognized as the Palestinian capital. The proposal fell short of recognizing the state of Israel, a necessary step for Hamas to be included in peace talks.

Since its electoral victory to lead the PA, Hamas has had public funds at its disposal, though it does not have access to the foreign-aid dollars traditionally provided by the United States and European Union to the PA. Historically, much of Hamas’s funding came from Palestinian expatriates and private donors in Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich Persian Gulf states. Iran also provides significant support, which some diplomats say could amount to $20 million to $30 million per year. In addition, some Muslim charities in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe funnel money into Hamas-backed social service groups. In December 2001, the Bush administration seized the assets of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest Muslim charity in the United States, on suspicions it was funding Hamas.

Between 2001 and 2003, in particular, Hamas and its comrades of Palestinian Islamic Jihad carried out dozens of such attacks, ultimately leading Israel to begin construction of a barrier between itself and Palestinian regions.

The organization generally targets deeply religious young men—although some suicide bombers have been older. The recruits do not fit the usual psychological profile of suicidal people, who are often desperate or clinically depressed. Hamas bombers often hold paying jobs, even in poverty-stricken Gaza. What they have in common, studies say, is an intense hatred of Israel. After a bombing, Hamas gives the family of the suicide bomber between three thousand dollars and five thousand dollars and assures them their son died a martyr in holy jihad.

The recruits undergo intense religious indoctrination, attend lectures, and undertake long fasts. The week before the bombing, the volunteers are watched closely by two Hamas activists for any signs of wavering, according to Nasra Hassan, writing in the New Yorker. Shortly before the “sacred explosion,” as Hamas calls it, the bomber records a video testament. To draw inspiration, he repeatedly watches his video and those made by his predecessors and then sets off for his would-be martyrdom after performing a ritual ablution and donning clean clothes. Hamas clerics assure the bombers their deaths will be painless and that dozens of virgins await them in paradise. The average bombing costs about $150.


Perhaps it best if Hamas told you who they are. Hamas in its own words. The following videos are from the Hamas web site.

A Hamas Web site published the videotape wills of two suicide bombers, with two main messages: One is directed to the Jews whose blood Hamas pledges to drink until they flee from the land of the Muslims, and the other is devoted to a mother who helps her son plan a suicide attack, according to Palestinian Media Watch, which presents the video shown on the Hamas site after its victory in the Palestinian parliamentary elections.

The video shows Idham Ahmed Majila and Maumin Rajab Rajab, who blew themselves up at the Karni crossing at the end of 2004. “My message to the hated Jews: There is no God but Allah,” Majala says. “We will hunt you everywhere, when you wake and when you sleep. We are a blood-drinking people and we know that there is no better blood than Jewish blood.

“We will not leave you alone until we quench ourselves with your blood and we will quench the thirst of our children with your blood. We will not rest until you leave the lands of the Muslims.”


Rajab, the second terrorist, says: “By the life of Allah, we will destroy you. We will blow you up. We will take our revenge on you. We will purify our land of you, pigs, who have defiled our land. By the life of Allah, we will take our vengeance. We are carrying out this operation as harsh revenge against the sons of monkeys and pigs.”


The video also shows a good-bye scene between mother and son as he gets ready to leave for the attack, with the mother helping him put on the explosive vest. In the background is a song, “O beloved mother, my mother. Don’t cry for us.”



Israel, Disarmed

Worth re-blogging.  Charles Krauthammer is not one of my favorite reads but his piece makes a great deal of sense to me as did Benjamin “BibiNetanyahu when he asked ” what would you do?”  I stand with Israel’s decision to prevent anyone from breaking of the blockade just as I stand against the 911 mosque darkening Lower Manhattan! It is time that we all stand up and stop these people from threatening what they obviously intend to do to all non Muslims as they march onward to take over the entire world.

They have made no secret of their intent. Let us not make any secret of ours. If it is war they want – a holy Jihad- then so be it… let’s face what we must and stand up to it and fight it now, it is inevitable … obviously! Let’s not just sit here and hand it over. Israel is right – give them not one bloody inch – not one. They will not be happy until every last inch of this earth is theirs and every last non Muslim is dead.

If even a blockade, the most passive and benign of defenses, is impermissible, what defenses does Israel have left?

The world is outraged at Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Turkey denounces its illegality, inhumanity, barbarity, etc. The usual U.N. suspects, Third World and European, join in. The Obama administration dithers. 

But as Leslie Gelb, former president of the Council on Foreign Relations, writes, the blockade is not just perfectly rational, it is perfectly legal. Gaza under Hamas is a self-declared enemy of Israel a declaration backed up by more than 4,000 rockets fired at Israeli civilian territory. Yet having pledged itself to unceasing belligerency, Hamas claims victimhood when Israel imposes a blockade to prevent Hamas from arming itself with still more rockets. 

In World War II, with full international legality, the United States blockaded Germany and Japan. And during the October 1962 missile crisis, we blockaded (quarantined) Cuba. Yet Israel is accused of international criminality for doing precisely what John Kennedy did: impose a naval blockade to prevent a hostile state from acquiring lethal weaponry.

Oh, but weren’t the Gaza-bound ships on a mission of humanitarian relief? No. Otherwise they would have accepted Israel’s offer to bring their supplies to an Israeli port, be inspected for military material, and have the rest trucked by Israel into Gaza as every week 10,000 tons of food, medicine, and other humanitarian supplies are sent by Israel to Gaza. 

Why was the offer refused? Because, as organizer Greta Berlin admitted, the flotilla was not about humanitarian relief but about breaking the blockade, i.e., ending Israel’s inspection regime, which would mean unlimited shipping into Gaza and thus the unlimited arming of Hamas.

Israel has already twice intercepted weapons-laden ships from Iran destined for Hezbollah and Gaza. What country would allow that? 

But even more important, why did Israel even have to resort to blockade? Because blockade is Israels fallback as the world systematically delegitimizes its traditional ways of defending itself forward and active defense.

1. Forward defense: As a small, densely populated country surrounded by hostile states, Israel had, for its first half-century, adopted forward defense fighting wars on enemy territory (such as the Sinai peninsula and Golan Heights) rather than its own.

Where possible (Sinai, for example), Israel has traded territory for peace. But where peace offers were refused, Israel retained the territory as a protective buffer zone. Thus Israel retained a small strip of southern Lebanon to protect the villages of northern Israel. And it took many losses in Gaza rather than expose Israeli border towns to Palestinian terror attacks. 

But under overwhelming outside pressure, Israel gave it up. The Israelis were told the occupations were not just illegal but at the root of the anti-Israel insurgencies and therefore withdrawal, by removing the cause, would bring peace. 

Land for peace. Remember? Well, during the past decade, Israel gave the land evacuating southern Lebanon in 2000 and Gaza in 2005. What did it get? An intensification of belligerency, heavy militarization of the enemy side, multiple kidnappings, cross-border attacks, and, from Gaza, years of unrelenting rocket attack.

2. Active defense: Israel then had to switch to active defense military action to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat (to borrow President Obamas description of our campaign against the Taliban and al-Qaeda) the newly armed terrorist mini-states established in southern Lebanon and Gaza after Israel withdrew. 

The result? The Lebanon war of 2006 and the Gaza operation of 200809. They were met with yet another avalanche of opprobrium and calumny by the same international community that had demanded the land-for-peace Israeli withdrawals in the first place. Worse, the U.N.s Goldstone report, which essentially criminalized Israels defensive operation in Gaza while whitewashing the casus belli  the preceding and unprovoked Hamas rocket war effectively delegitimized any active Israeli defense against its self-declared terror enemies. 

3. Passive defense: Without forward or active defense, Israel is left with but the most passive and benign of all defenses a blockade to simply prevent enemy rearmament. Yet, as we speak, this too is headed for international delegitimization.

But, if none of these are permissible, whats left?

Nothing. The whole point of this relentless international campaign is to deprive Israel of any legitimate form of self-defense.

The world is tired of these troublesome Jews, six million that number again hard by the Mediterranean, refusing every invitation to national suicide. For which they are relentlessly demonized, ghettoized, and constrained from defending themselves, even as the more committed anti-Zionists Iranian in particular openly prepare a more final solution.
