Hamas runs kid's suicide website

Two Israeli organizations that monitor Palestinian media reported that Hamas is running a cartoon-style website glorifying shaheed (homicide bombers) geared towards children.

No joke.

According to Palestine Media Watch, the site encourages children to commit suicide in order to kill Israeli soldiers and civilians. Today the site had an item telling a short story about a young girl who knowingly leads Israeli soldiers to a bomb and dies with them. The story said that "Suad became a shahida (martyr) lying on the grass and smiling because she was a shahida for Palestine."

Itamar Marcus, Director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an Israeli organization which monitors and translates Palestinian Arabic language media, said that the site, along with and are official Hamas sites.

"A man by the name of Nizar Hussein who sits in Lebanon runs those site and he runs the children's Hamas Web site from the same server," said Marcus.

According to Dr. Reuven Ehrlich, a former army general who now directs an organization called the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center Hussein works in the same office as leading Hamas official in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan.

"We know that they are working together," said Ehrlich. "I checked it out with my Israeli sources and they confirmed this."

Itamar Marcus added that has materials that could not be available to others unless they were connected officially with Hamas. "There is no other way in the world that they can get these films of suicide bombings on these Web sites."

The children's site, which is in Arabic, has a "Shahid of the Week" on its homepage.

Hamas denies it has an official site.

PMW believes that the reason Hamas does not have a declared official Web site is because it might be closed down for political reasons. Indeed, in an interview with UPI on October 10, Osama Hamdan said that Hamas did not have its own Internet site and that political pressure caused down its former site to be shut down three years ago.

You of course will notice that while Hamas denied that these are `official' sites, they didn't criticize or disavow content that teaches young children what a good thing it is to murder innocent Israeli civilians.

What we are dealing here, literally, is a death cult. And the sooner the cult's leaders are destroyed or imprisoned and the adherants subjected to severe deprogramming, the sooner the Israeli-Palestinian situation will resolve.

This is psychosis on a grand scale.
