Reader comment on item: Middle East Extremists Attack Their Supporters

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Aug 26, 2014 at 15:44

So does this gain any new introspection if there is a peeling away (as it is being done by ISIS/ISIL/IS) of the carefully crafted façade of all this rampaging in the Middle East for a cause that is called Islamic (whether associated with terrorism or fundamentalism or outright expressions of hatred) at its roots, but is more when the façade no longer contains the vitriolic propaganda that has pervaded the region for generations.

Maybe, put another way, the attempt by the western media to want to build bridges between the West's dialogue of a search for peace in the region has now clashed fully head long into the contravening ideology of the resident Ishmaelite intentions of expelling all western ideology (incidentally specifically connected to a Judeo-Christian narrative that would allow Israel to remain and coexist), ending with the eliminations of any hint of Israel and any remnant western influences in the ummah. This has been the ruling influence behind the 'Palestinian' façade.

With the alliance purportedly made between the Hamas leader and Mahmoud Abbas apparently being made with ulterior motives, there seemed to be a shift, however slight, to embrace a greater association than that which was narrowly attributed to the 'Palestinian' cause as reason enough to challenge Israel's sole rights to the land promised to them through the Abrahamic covenant. American Administrative Secretary of State John Kerry seemingly pounced on this shift as a potential signal that maybe, just maybe, a hint of a peace prospect was in the offing.

Sec Kerry jumped; but PM Benjamin Netanyahu was not so easily inclined: for he knew better, having been there and seen it all once before, twice before, many times before. This was not the dialogue that was reported to the west, however, so western perceptions were filtered to present a 'Palestinian' search for its definition of peace (hudna) while Israel was, once again, left in the lurch as its population prepared for the next series of attacks all so easily permissible by altered western perceptions defined by 'Palestinian' narratives, like the Hamas –'Palestinian' accord.

So let us make it plain: why would Middle East Extremists attack their supporters? Because the façade of the 'Palestinian' cause has lost its luster and Gaza/West Bank cannot support a 'Palestinian' Authority as a leading means to diminish the Jewish state on the way to its Islamically intended elimination. Its usefulness is now questioned by fundamentalists, some of whom who see it as a false western appellation that served once for foiling a western peace in the Middle East, yet now the truth of its purpose as formerly disguised by western dialogues is no longer sustainable by forces that are saying, we will wait no longer to trample Zionist influences in the Middle East. The extortion has exceeded the limits of the words of propaganda; the beast must be revealed from behind the façade.
