What is infuriating is not that Saudi Arabia, our mortal enemy, is funding Hamas, but that it is not being asked to fund Fatah as well. It is absurd that the American government, that any Infidel government, that any Infidel taxpayers are being forced by their governments anywhere to support Muslims in the style to which they have grown accustomed — to wit, living on the disguised Jizyah of foreign aid from Infidels. They consider themselves entitled to this even though they remain implacably committed to the Islamic view of Infidels and, certainly in the case of the “Palestinian” Arabs of Fatah, determined to make life hell for the Israelis.
They intend to keep every kind of economic, diplomatic, and military pressure on (including terrorism, which is hardly limited to Hamas but was copyrighted by the “Palestine Authority”s” presiding genius, Yassir Arafat, and continues today with such organizations, having nothing to do with Hamas and everything to do with Fatah, as the redundantly-named Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aksa Martyr’s Brigade).
The Instant Makeover of Fatah as some “moderate” organization sticks in the craw of every educated person who has been following its non-evolution, its permanent commitment to Jihad.
The only thing that distinguishes Fatah from Hamas is that the former group of gangsters are a little more willing to utter a word or two to turn on the tap of the Jizyah, and apparently Abbas”s casper-milquetoast appearance is enough to disguise or make everyone forget his own history as the right-hand man of Yassir Arafat — his collaborator and assistant in everything. And that is all one needs to know about Mahmoud Abbas, save perhaps for his Holocaust-denying doctoral thesis, and his directly contradicting his smooth assurances to the Americans when he addresses audiences of fellow Arabs and Muslims. That is, Fatah, being more corrupt, and more worldly, is more interested in getting that Jizyah started. And, furthermore, being more worldly, Fatah understands that before going in for the kill, the “Palestinians,” aided by other Arabs and Muslims, must spend another decade or so subjecting Israel to constant pressure, pushing it back, literally, forcing it to give up territory, and control of aquifers and invasion routes, that will make the daily life of Israelis absolute hell, and cause Israel, whose citizens already live daily with a level of danger that no other country must endure, to live in a state of maximum peril from here on.
It is a quarrel over loot. Look at the glee with which the Hamas members vandalized and took things from the symbols of Fatah’s wealth, those villas, belonging to Dahlan, to Abbas, to Arafat himself. They wanted that loot for themselves, they wanted their share.
Everywhere Arabs and Muslims who claim they need support should no longer get it from Infidels, for they take it as if by right, as Jizyah. And the donors begin to give it as if they must pay it or no longer remain in the good graces, as they see it, of those Muslims to whom they give that money. This is psychologically bad, for it encourages Muslim triumphalism, and encourages a state of dhimmitude among the Infidel donors.
On the other hand, if Fatah has to receive money from rich Arabs — remember that famous Community of Believers, that umma al-islamiyya? — then it will never be satisfied with the paltry amounts it will be given. It will never be grateful. It will always ask for more, and the rich Arabs, who are incredibly selfish, will be put on the spot, because they are supposed to share their wealth with fellow Muslims. And what will happen if the poor Muslims begin to mutter that the “oil wealth” should be shared with all the world’s Muslims? That isn’t exactly what residents of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates, Qatar, want to hear, want to have bruited about.
And we, as Infidels, want as much dissension and rancor and envy within the Camp of Islam and Jihad as possible. And we want as much as possible of their discretionary income, in the rich oil states, soaked up supporting Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, and the so-called “Palestinians,” because that is then money that the Saudis and others will not have available to spend on mosques and madrasas and campaigns of Da”wa and local hirelings, all over the Western world.
A Presidential candidate or two must speak out about this. If they do, and if they begin to use that word “Jizyah” and to denounce the payment by our government of what they will call Jizyah, they will go sky-high both in the opinion polls, and in the opinions of the educated, and they will deserve to.
Who is going to speak truthfully about this matter? Who is going to do it first?
