Hamas Tunnel System Rivals Viet Cong’s Cu Chi Underground

A massive tunnel system running from Gaza to the Egyptian border has long served Palestinians as a supply line for everything from livestock and construction materials to stocks of medicine and smuggled electronics equipment. But now, as war rages in the area, the tunnels have become the main route for providing the Hamas terror group with the weapons it needs to fight against Israel.

Dismantling the tunnels in Gaza is a key to winning the war for Israel, which has sworn to eradicate them. But military experts and historians say destroying them will be virtually impossible.

The tunnel system is strikingly similar to the Viet Cong’s infamous Cu Chi tunnels during the Vietnam War. The Viet Cong moved weapons and supplies through their tunnels, and, like Hamas, they hid their top leaders in them as well.

The Viet Cong — a technological underdog to the United States — was able to bridge the firepower gap against a world superpower through sheer cunning and ingenuity. The Cu Chi tunnels were a vast network of underground sleeping quarters, weapon storage facilities, war rooms and fighting positions. Guerrillas dug out makeshift medical facilities beneath the earth, and doctors tended to wounded soldiers in them, often using electricity generated by a bicycle.

Hamas in the eyes of an expert

Khaled Hroub, author of several books on Hamas, including Hamas: A Beginner’s Guide, talks to Al Jazeera about the organisation’s social and political strengths and explains why he believes Hamas is looking forward to an Israeli ground incursion into the Gaza Strip.

Al Jazeera: Two senior Hamas leaders were recently killed in Israeli air strikes. How will this impact the organisation’s leadership?

Khaled Hroub: Hamas’ leaders are very used to hiding and escaping Israeli attacks. I can’t see this affecting Hamas much. Israel succeeded in assassinating very senior Hamas leaders including Sheikh [Ahmed] Yasin himself, the founder and spiritual leader of Hamas, then followed by Abdel Aziz Al-Rantissi who was the main figure in the Gaza Strip.

And yet Hamas continued to rise and succeeded in winning the elections. So I can’t see Hamas being weakened by killing one or two or three or even more leaders in the Gaza Strip.

The Other Israel (Teaser)

Regions back Medvedev over Caucasus

President Medvedev says the country had no option but to intervene militarily after Georgian forces killed hundreds of civilians and some Russian peacekeepers in South Ossetia. He made the statement at a meeting of the heads of Russia’s regions in the Kremlin.

Medvedev told the State Council meeting that his government had acted responsibly.

“There isn’t a single country in the world that would tolerate its citizens and peacekeepers being killed. Russia was obliged to save these people”.

At the Moscow meeting, the government’s position was backed by regional leaders.

The Republic of Tatarstan’s President, Mentimir Shaimiyev, said recent events showed that ethnic conflicts cannot be solved by force.

Assimilation Or Separation?

John Howard, PC-infidel

There’s been another email message circulating the inner-body of cyberspace like a virus, or an anti-body, depending upon how you look at it. Even though the news is old hat, the email still attempts to drum-up support for Australia’s Prime Minister, John Howard, who lit the fuse to Australia’s Muslim community with seemingly un-PC remarks about Muslim extremists.

Is that true? Has he really crossed that line and become one those socially acceptable opponents of political correctness?

He has indeed.

According to Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, “He said a commitment to jihad and extreme attitudes towards women were two problems unique to Muslims that previous intakes of migrants from Europe did not have, and that Australia wanted people to assimilate and adopt Australian ways.” Howard also said that Australians want people to assimilate.

By social convention, there’s acceptable and unacceptable departures from PC, you know. An example of an acceptable departure from PC is welcoming asylum-seekers and migrants of any phenotype with the unenforceable condition that they assimilate. Of course, Jewish migrants are the exception to that example: they would find such demands impudent and Czarish. The Jewish population of Australia goes back to the beginning of that country, and so does its struggles against assimilation. But that’s the socially acceptable, un-PC voice. That is what passes as the alternative and remedial view to the fanatical advocates of political correctness. It’s very much akin to the positions of socially acceptable PC apostates in America and Europe.

In the marketplace of ideas, you have only two options if you’re to avoid any real stigma. You can either be a socially acceptable pluralist who embraces migrants of any phenotype unconditionally, or you can be a socially acceptable PC heretic who welcomes them with superficial conditions.

Don’t get me wrong. Dismissing the demands of outsiders, who insist on changing the ways of the country which had been gracious enough to grant them refuge, solely to accommodate the culture of the nation from which they fled, is always a sign of sanity. But it’s a perfunctory exercise of sanity. It not only fails to subject the melting pot model of coexistence to adversarial testing, but it presupposes that the melting pot isn’t boiling over at all! And if any difficulties are recognized, the solutions are always more diversification or assimilation. Never separation.

Sometimes the socially acceptable deviation from political correctness appears to make sense. But that’s only because you’re being told that all is not well in the melting pot (and you can see that with your own eyes). A good example of this is former Governor Richard D. Lamm’s I Have A Plan To Destroy America. Lamm identifies racial identity, bilingualism and multi-culturalism as causal factors in national suicide. He even suggests there are explanations other than prejudice for the drop-out rate in the black and hispanic communities.

Hymm, interesting. Has Lamm read Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein’s Bell Curve? Or Richard Lynn’s Race differences in Intelligence: an Evolutionary Analysis? Or Philippe Rushton’s Race, Evolution and Behavior? At first glance, Lamm appears to make sense, just as all socially acceptable opponents of political correctness appear to make sense. But upon closer inspection, his rhetoric is nothing short of rubbish.

Lamm, like John Howard, suggests that “assimilation” and “unity” will magically cure the problems we see in the melting pot, making it a Utopian smorgasbord with national longevity. How exactly do genetically different races, with genetically different brains and genetically different hormones, assimilate? Will the population be processed through an assimilation machine to equalize cranial capacity, brain size, cerebral cortex convolutions, IQ, and testosterone levels? In walks your average, crotch-grabbing, low-IQ negro with sagging pants and crime-prone behavior, and out walks a business man with a hsapien V.2.1 upgrade, with new features like adjusted hormones, larger cranium and brain sizes and higher-IQ. Civilized behavior guaranteed. SAT scores will be so high that sports scholarship offers will be an insult. No more rapping the national anthem.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, the unacceptable departure from political correctness is the racist one, and it’s condemned by liberals and conservatives alike. The racialist view is also the causal view. This view doesn’t stop analyzing the problem after realizing that multi-culturalism isn’t working, or that differences exist in the drop-out rate and values of various races. The racialist does not simply realize that races are not alike. The racialist asks why races are not alike. What differences exist and why do these differences exist? Are these differences genetic? And if the differences are genetic, can they ever be changed? Furthermore, how sane is it to base social policies upon the fallacy that all races are equal, when biologically they are not, and never will be?

So John Howard made a socially acceptable, politically incorrect remark. Big deal. He’s hardly worthy of patriotic applause.

He’s not even a true-blue assimilationist. A real assimilationist would have rejected pressure from Jewish activists to create criminal offenses prohibiting anyone from subjecting the holocaust to historiography. Rather than standing up for free speech, a tradition of freedom-loving Australians and Americans alike, John Howard allowed historian David Irving to be arrested, jailed and prosecuted, solely to accommodate the whims and conceits of Jewry, particularly those Jews who exploit human suffering for profit and political advantage. A real assimilationist would have said “No. This is Australia. We don’t create laws to imprison historians who disagree with other historians. This is Australia and we value free speech. Assimilate now or leave!”

PC-infidel John Howard is merely a part-time assimilationist. When he’s not making assimilationist demands to Lebanese and other Arab migrants, he’s a Jew-appeaser.

If you get the same email, return to sender, so the forwarders can get it through through their heads. We don’t want non-European immigrants at all; and as for the ones already here, we don’t want them to assimilate. We want to racially segregate without public or private interference.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Dies

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, survivor of Soviet concentration camps, author of the Gulag Archipelago trilogy, Two Hundred Years Together, and A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, passed away of heart failure. He was 89.

In 1970, Solzhenitsyn won the Nobel peace prize for writing the Gulag Archipelago, a 3,000+ page trilogy describing the horrors of the Soviet slave labor camps in which he had been imprisoned. Although Solzhenitsyn exposed the Soviet Union’s own concentration camps to the international community, this holocaust survivor–if I may call him that–didn’t curry any favor with the Jewish community: many of the mass murderers identified in Solzhenitsyn’s writings were Jewish. For reporting these crimes against humanity, Solzhenitsyn has been labeled an “anti-semite”.

Natan Sharansky, an Israeli Jew who defected from the Soviet Union where he had also been a political prisoner, tells the Jewish Telegraph Agency that Solzhenitsyn’s prejudice should be viewed in context.

“I don’t think that he has any special prejudice,” Sharansky told JTA. “He had a big interest in defending the Russian nationalism, the Russian pride. Also he wanted to unmask the evils of the empire. While studying it, he discovered — it was very easy to discover — that among the architects of this gulag system, meaning this system of imprisonment, were many, many Jews.”

As one Jew told ynetnews, “An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name “Genrikh Yagoda,” the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda … is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system.

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. Stalin’s close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore …adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind…did not move Kaganovich.” Seven million Ukrainians starved to death under Kaganovich.

Despite the fact that Solzhenitsyn’s writings won him the Nobel prize, his books are rare and hard to find. A search on Amazon reveals only a few used copies available. Murray Rothstein (fake name Sumner Redstone), who owns Viacom and CBS and holdings like Simon and Schuster, aren’t publishing Solzhenitsyn’s books. Look in vain for his last work, Two Hundred Years Together, an evaluation of two centuries of interaction between Russians and Jews.

Why is Solzhenitsyn suppressed? Is there no market for atrocities?

Vassili Berezhkov, a retired KGB colonel and historian of the secret services and the NKVD (the precursor of the KGB), told the Guardian: “If Solzhenitsyn writes that there were many Jews in the NKVD, it will increase the passions of anti-semitism, which has deep roots in Russian history. I think it is better not to discuss such a question now.” Guardian, January 25, 2003.

In Hebrew, the holocaust is called Shoah. And Jews have a saying, “There’s no business like Shoah business.” Surely between movies like Shindler’s List, and events like Holocaust Remembrance month, and the countless books and articles written about all of the alleged horrors of nazi concentration camps, surely there’s a market for Solzhenitsyn. The Diary of Anne Frank is required reading in schools. Surely the NEA can squeeze in a little Solzhenitsyn. After all, what the nazis allegedly did to European Jews is minuscule in comparison to what Jews did to Russians.

When one realizes that the “Jewish” holocaust™ provides Jewry with a strong impetus for zionism and political activism, it becomes readily apparent that Solzhenitsyn isn’t good for Shoah business after all. In fact, for zionists and other Jewish political activists, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is nothing more than a thorn in the side.


Suggested reading:

1. Stalin’s Jews, ynetnews, 12/21/06.

2. An important literary-historiographical event: the first publication in English of parts of Solzhenitsyn’s “Two Hundred Years Together. Vdare, October, 27, 2006.

3. Behind Communism, Frank Britton.

4. Jewish Run Concentration Camps in the Soviet Union, Greife.

5. Despite what anyone may think about the contemporary ownership of National Vanguard Books, I would highly recommend purchasing copies of Gulag Archipelago when they become available again. They are rare and hard to find.
