The monsters of Hamas

Do those social justice warriors on college campuses, who march with pro-Palestinian posters, also stand with the monsters of Hamas? When asked how you can support such acts of cruelty, in light of the preponderance of documented evidence, their response is that the atrocities never happened. They assert that they are all fabrications made-up by the United States, Israel and her supporters. Not surprising, because many of those who deny Hamas’s crimes against humanity are the same people who claim the Holocaust never happened.

To be clear, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, and the European Union have designated Hamas a terror organization. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre slammed the comments of Democrat Representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Cori Bush, when asked for the administration’s reaction to comments made by them. “I’ve seen some of those statements this weekend, and we’re going to continue to be very clear. We believe they’re wrong, we believe they’re repugnant, and we believe they’re disgraceful”.

There is a common misconception that those in academia, because of their higher degree of education, are more cultured, moral and ethical than those with less formal education. Today’s responses on some campuses prove nothing can be further from the truth. Any student of history, not yet indoctrinated by antisemitic rhetoric penned as some sort of declaration of social justice, need only look back to the Wannsee Conference, a meeting of senior government officials of Nazi Germany held in the Berlin on 20 January 1942. The Conference’s purpose was to plan the ‘Final Solution,’ the Holocaust, and eight of the fifteen attended held doctorate degrees. So much for any direct correlation between academic achievement and morality.

One must wonder, from where do those who fail to speak out against Hamas’s unimaginable cruelty and unspeakable crimes, get their moral guidance and values.

One must wonder, how did their moral compass get so damaged that it directs them on a path to evil instead of good.

One can only hope that this darkness that envelopes too many of the so-called enlightened, is just the dark before dawn.
