Hamas' plan to use NGOs - and liberal Jews - to help destroy Israel
While this is interesting, it's not surprising. We Jews are pretty good at dividing ourselves, especially when it comes to Israel. With the world showing such a strong interest in Jews and Israel, mostly a negative, destructive interest, it was probably only a matter of time.
Senior Hamas official Ahmad Yousef wants the terror organization to reach out to anti-Zionist Jews of the world - and he has identified the Reform Jews of America as a prime target for his message. Writing in Al Watan Voice, Yousef says that there were a significant number of anti-Zionist Jews in Europe before World War II who were targets of German security services in the 1920s and their names are now lost in the alleged Holocaust. He then looks at America:
During the years of my stay in America for nearly two decades, I felt that there were great differences between the Jews of America when it came to the Palestinian issue. Yes, there are supporters of Israel who have been drinking the Zionist ideology and living and defending it through lobbies and political pressure groups such as AIPAC, , But there are also among the Reform Jews others, and they had positions in which they resisted the Zionist thought with its religious dimensions and inhuman practice.
Yousef says that Zionists brainwashed most Jews and it is time for Hamas to set the record straight.
We know some of our co-religionists, for various reasons which we won't try to divine, are always at work either trying to destroy Israel or trying to divide and destroy Judaism. Of course the outside Jew-haters were bound to notice and offer help.
Hamas literally plans to use "human rights groups" to help destroy Israel. After all, they are already so antagonistic towards the Jewish state while their criticisms of Palestinian terror are muted at best. Of course Hamas sees them as allies. And he knows that liberal American Jews are ignorant enough to listen to these anti-Israel NGOs as a step towards pushing for a Palestinian state that would treat Jews exactly as well as every other Arab state has treated its Jews. Notice also that Hamas' stated goal of dividing Jews in America exactly mirrors that of J-Street.
Human rights groups are ripe for Hamas' plan, as the current crop of human rights groups see anti-Semitism as a human right, if not a human requirement, and work to deny Jews any human rights - in the name of human rights.
