Fatah and Hamas: Flip Sides of Same Arab Imperialism and Genocidalism

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines, Anyone?

HAMAS: GENOCIDALISM "HERE AND NOW"

Hamas ideology is immutably founded on 14-centuries of Jihadist dogma, according to which the waging a Holy War of Extermination (Jihad) against Infidel nations is every Muslim's command, with Infidels to be given 3 choices:

(a) Embrace Islam;
(b) Submit to Islamic rule as oppressed Dhimmi minority ("One State
Solution");
(c) Endless war until under threat of destruction.

The only tolerated peace with Infidels is a temporary truce (Hudna), which Arab Jihadists are allowed for up to 10 years, until they get stronger and are able to stage more a decisive assault (back to Sq. 1!).

A territory that is conquered by the forces of Islam at any given time in history - such as Israel/Palestine - is considered "Dar-el-Islam" (Realm of Islam), and is held by its Muslim ruler in trust as a "wakf" from Allah. The ruler is not permitted to concede a square inch of it to any Infidel enemy, unless he is faced with no other choice as a result of military defeat.

Arab leaders know well that, if they break above Sharia dogma, their verdict is certain death - see Abdullah I of Jordan, Anwar Sadat, or what Arafat said he was afraid of at Camp David II.

Hamas's "immediate" genocidalism is summarized in its charter as follows:
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will
OBLITERATE it, just as it obliterated others before it."

FATAH: "STAGED" GENOCIDALISM

Fatah's roots lie in the secular, Pan-Arabist Baath movement, which in our day has morphed into none other than an Arab variety of National-Socialism.

Fatah's guiding strategy is based on the 1974 PLO "Phased Plan" for the destruction of Israel, whereby Fatah will accept any territory it can obtain in Israel/Palestine, with the sole purpose of staging more lethal attacks on the Jewish state, until its final destruction.

Accordingly, as part of the "Peace" Process, Fatah is willing to recognize only a Jewish state that commits:

(a) MILITARY SUICIDE by retreating to indefensible pre-1967 armistice lines, and

(b) DEMOGRAPHIC SUICIDE by flooding itself with Arab settlers though a "right of return" for refugees.

And until then, the Fatah "Peace" Process incorporates nothing but incessant Arab terrorism and rocket attacks on Israel.

The outline of the "Phased Plan" can be summarized as follows:

- Through the "armed struggle" (i.e., terrorism), to establish an "independent combatant national authority" over any territory that is "liberated" from Israeli rule. (Article 2)
- To continue the struggle against Israel, using the territory of the national authority as a base of operations. (Article 4)
- To provoke an all-out war in which Israel's Arab neighbors destroy it entirely ("liberate all Palestinian territory"). (Article 8)

Fatah's "staged" genocidalism is based summed up by Article 12 of its charter, which outlines the organization's goals regarding Israel:
The Goals: Article (12): COMPLETE LIBERATION of Palestine, and
ERADICATION of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural
EXISTENCE.

CONCLUSION

If Israel had to pick one of its two genocidal enemies, my preference by far would be Hamas.

Hamas, due to its Islamist dogma, is at least straightforward and unable to hide its genocidal goals with a deceptive cloak.

Fatah, on the other hand, has developed excellent political skills in the course of past decades and learned to hide its underlying genocidal goals by way of well-orchestrated deceptions.

As attested by the Oslo process and its aftermath, Fatah's deceptions have proven particularly effective in feeding on the naive peace desires of significant political segments within Israel, as well as the Western world.
