Is Hamas a by-product of the Israeli occupation? Yes. Just as Hezbollah is a by-product of the Israeli occupation of Lebanon, al-Shabab a by-product of Ethiopia’s occupation of Somalia, al-Qaeda of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, and the Islamic State, of the US ’ occupation of Iraq. Historical records make that clear.
aehselzgueg asked: So I read a recent article that said that Hamas executed several people, I think the count is 11 total and six or so were in public, because they were accused of being Israeli spies and they were blamed for Israel's recent airstrike that took the lives of a couple military leaders. Do you think this is like a media tactic to make Gazans ~uncivilized~ and the whole "save the heathens from themselves" thing or do you think there's something else at play there? (Basically, is there bias?)
Actually, the count currently stands at 18 collaborators being terminated.
Certainly, the way the western media has reported on it is meant to portray Palestinians as barbaric and violent thugs. A lot of information which is readily available from Arabic sources on the ground in Gaza is left out in English-language reports, such as what crimes the collaborators are accused of having committed and the fact that many of them have been in jail for years now. And you can tell what the effect of that reporting is by observing how zionists and other westerners are now using phrases like “mass murder” and “they’re killing their own people” — all while ignoring or blatantly supporting Israel’s massacre of over 2,000 Palestinian in the space of a month.
The reality is that there are collaborators — in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Jerusalem, and in so-called Israel. They do it for money or for access to privileges or to be allowed to leave for another country or because of their internal colonization or a combination of these or other reasons. Whatever their motive is, they cannot be allowed to operate because the end result of their actions is what we’re seeing in Gaza now: total destruction of life and livelihood.
It might be easy for white, Arab, and other liberals living comfortably far from any sort of all-consuming violence to condemn these desperate acts of self-defense, but the Palestinian people do not have the luxury of such morality. Ask any Palestinian in Gaza right now, and they will tell you the collaborators and the outraged humanitarians can all go to hell.
