Hamas didn’t get the memo about how wrong it is to discriminate against people based on who they love.
From the Liberal Death Star aka The New York Times:
Mr. Ishtiwi, 34, was a commander from a storied family of Hamas loyalists who, during the 2014 war with Israel, was responsible for 1,000 fighters and a network of attack tunnels. Last month, his former comrades executed him with three bullets to the chest.
Adding a layer of scandal to the story, he was accused of moral turpitude, by which Hamas meant homosexuality. And there were whispers that he had carved the word “zulum” — wronged — into his body in a desperate kind of last testament.
Remember that the prominent and subversive Islamist front group, the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) case. HLF raised funds for Hamas, and the successful prosecution for raising funds for terrorism also included several CAIR officials.
Of course, not everyone frowns on CAIR. From World Net Daily:
According to a statement on CAIR’s website, representatives from the two U.S.-based Islamic groups met with senior government officials on December 22, and pledged to work together to counter a decision by the United Arab Emirates, or UAE, on November 15, to put CAIR and MAS on its list of foreign terrorist groups.
The UAE also outlawed the two organizations and declared CAIR and MAS to be front groups for the terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood.
The FBI severed contacts with CAIR in 2009 as “not an appropriate liaison partner” for the bureau because of evidence linking the group and its founders to Hamas, which the U.S. lists as a terrorist organization. Hamas runs Gaza and was founded as an offshoot of the jihadist organization the Muslim Brotherhood, based in Egypt.
We know that Obama is a fan of the Muslim Brotherhood, so we shouldn’t be surprised, right?
