Who is More Racist: Arab Palestinians or the West?

One of this blog's readers and a colleague of mine directed me to the website Omedia. There's a link called The Hamas Covenant In English.

Doing a word search revealed the following results:

  • 'Israel' is mentioned four times, including
Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it

Arab countries surrounding Israel are asked to open their borders before the fighters from among the Arab and Islamic nations so that they could consolidate their efforts with those of their Moslem brethren in Palestine.
Comment: Islam is Hamas's weapon to try eliminate Israel. They are calling on other countries to aid this effort to eliminate Israel. This isn't rocket science analysis, since subtlety isn't Hamas 's strongpoint.
  • Zionist/Zion/Zionism is mentioned twenty two times, including
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the links in the chain of the struggle against the Zionist invaders.

... through Zionist organizations under various names and shapes, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs

With their money they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies and achieving Zionist interests.

The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion.

The Zionist Nazi activities against our people will not last for long.

Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"

The Islamic Resistance Movement consider [sic] itself to be the spearhead of the circle of struggle with world Zionism

The present Zionist onslaught has also been preceded by Crusading raids from the West and other Tatar raids from the East. Just as the Moslems faced those raids and planned fighting and defeating them, they should be able to confront the Zionist invasion and defeat it.
Comments: Conspiracy theories are abound; from the Freemasons and Rotary Club to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. The Nazification of Israel has its roots in the Hamas Covenant - the far-left anti-Israel commentators are mere plagiarisers. Hamas see this as a chapter in religious wars dating back hundreds of years, rather than the modern day 'occupation' narrative.
  • Jew is mentioned twelve times, including
Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious.

The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews."

In face of the Jews' usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised

In their Nazi treatment, the Jews made no exception for women or children.

We should not forget to remind every Moslem that when the Jews conquered the Holy City in 1967, they stood on the threshold of the Aqsa Mosque and proclaimed that "Mohammed is dead, and his descendants are all women."

Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people. "May the cowards never sleep."
Comment: Setting aside the scientifically curious botanical question about Gharkad trees, Hamas is clearly anti-Semitic, obsessed with Jews and will use falsities to support this.


Hamas is clearly a racist organisation, so what does it say about the popular support among the Arab Palestinians that voted Hamas into government?

Suppose that an organisation in Germany had a covenant such as Hamas'. What would be the German reaction to it? Would they be arrested for incitement to racism and anti-Semitism? Would they be voted in?

Suppose also that such a hypothetical organisation in Germany formed a unity government with the Social Democrats. Would the Germans be comfortable with this? Would they vote for this coalition?

Would other Europeans and countries be comfortable with this? Presumably, this would not be tolerated in Europe.

So why is it tolerated among the Arab Palestinians? Are there two standards of decency and morals - a high one for Europeans and a low one for Arab Palestinians?

Is it racist to give a free pass on anti-Semitism and racial hatred because it is believed Arab Palestinians are not civilised or capable to be held to the same moral standards?
