Hamas is a Fascistoid Astroturf terror outfit that Israel dreamt up in the 1970s and successfully turned into a major terrorist threat in order to counter the Palestinian nationalists. Israel encouraged Hamas to burn feminist bookstores and impose Shariah terror.
Consistently with Zionist policy, after taking power in Gaza, Hamas relinquished the Palestinians' claim to Palestine. In August of 2005, Mahmoud al Zahar, the top Hamas terrorist in Gaza, made the following remarks: “Our position stems from our religious convictions. …[Palestine] is not the property of the Palestinians or the Arabs. This land is the property of all Muslims in all parts of the world.”
So the Palestinians don’t want Gaza. They signed over their rights to Gaza to a religious cult known as “the Muslims”.
What I don’t understand is why leftist support Palestinian claims to Palestine after those claims have been withdrawn.
It appears that selfsame leftists are claiming Palestine, not for the hapless descendants of its former inhabitants, who say they don't want it, but for countless Muslims located in Chicago, the Philippines, Borneo, Pakistan, Somalia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. These Muslims, on the other hand, have made no announcement that they accept the gift of Palestine from the Palestinians and have shown no interest in relocating to Palestine.
In any case international law doesn't recognize claims to territory by shadowy death cults. International law recognizes the rights of native inhabitants and in part those of their descendants. Once the latter have relinquished their claims, they don't have a leg to stand on.
Consequently there is no legal basis for supporting the terrorist shenanigans of the Zionist robot Hamas. They have no legal rights to the country.
For any leftist to take seriously the superstitious mumbo-jumbo spouted by a Zionist-controlled pimp terror gang like Hamas is to proclaim her/his abandonment of the legacy of the Enlightenment, of Marx, of Darwin, of Voltaire, Kant and Lavoisier. It is to accept mindless horseshit as a valid argument. It is a betrayal of Western civilization. It means accepting as authoritative the most ridiculous collection of malarkey in the Solar System, i.e. the shariah.
The ridiculous superstitions of semi-literate Mohammedan fanatics should bear no weight with leftists. None whatever.
