Hamas Surprised: Iran Supports a ‘Dictator Like Assad’ ?

You find the rats when the ship sinks. The Iranian dictatorship used to love the Hamas dictatorship until Hamas opposed the Assad dictatorship. Hamas asks, “How could Ahmadinejad support a dictator?”

The Hamas terrorist organization that suffocates Arabs in Gaza simply cannot understand how its once-upon-a-time benefactor Iran could support a dictator like Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“We never expected that a country like Iran, which talked about oppressed people and dictatorial regimes, would stand behind a dictator like Assad who is killing his own people,” Ahmed Yousef, an adviser to Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas’ prime minister, said, according to The Telegraph.

So who’s on first? If Haniyeh is a not a dictator, and if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  is not a dictator, that makes Assad a democrat. And if the bases are loaded with these lovers of freedom, who is going to being them home?  Al Qaeda?

Or maybe they simple will be stranded until their terror axis collapses from its own paranoia.

It was only two years ago that Hamas was headquartered in Damascus, where Assad provided a warm home for Khaled Mashaal, Hamas’ supreme leader. Iran supplied training for Hamas terrorists and shipped arms and explosives to Gaza, often through Syria.

The test of true friendship is fear.

When the fanatical Iranian Muslim regime  murdered and tortured thousands of its citizens who protested the rigged re-election of  Ahmadinejad four years ago, Hamas learned a lot from its trainers how to deal with anyone who dares calls a dictator a dictator. Make the people afraid of fear, especially those who never heard of Roosevelt.

However, when Syrians had the courage to take to the streets to protest, and then fight, against Assad, Hamas started to be afraid. Hamas so far has kept the lid on opposition in Gaza. It casually executes its citizens suspected of collaborating with Israel, and it routinely tortures activists in the rival Fatah terrorist party.

It follows fundamental and radical Islam and would be subject to upheaval if it were to back Assad an Alawite whose sect is considered by most Muslims to be apostates, slaughters tens of thousands of civilians.

Mashaal has long been exiled from Syria, and Assad and  Ahmadinejad are more dependent on each other than ever. If one falls, the other could be next.

The more Hamas took a position against Assad, the more Iran scolded Hamas, which had been receiving millions of dollars  a year plus great gadgets, such as anti-aircraft missiles and anti-tank rockets, to use against Israel.

Hamas’s deputy foreign minister Ghazi Hamad admitted to The London Telegraph last week that Iran has punished Hamas financially because of the terrorist organization’s opposition to Assad.

He said that relations with Iran are “bad” and added, “I cannot give you the exact amount. For supporting the Syrian revolution, we lost very much. I cannot deny that since 2006 Iran supported Hamas with money and many [other] things. But the situation is not like the past.”

Hamas also has a big problem with its political mother, the Muslim Brotherhood movement that brought Hamas into this world in 1987.

Terrorists from Gaza, many of them from rival terror gangs, are trying to keep a hold on the Sinai Peninsula and are keeping Egypt from exercising control.

Hamas is losing support, Assad is clutching on to Iran, whose economy is severely crippled by Western sanctions, and Iranian-backed Hezbollah is risking bringing down the house in Lebanon by shoring up Syria.

And what happened to the last Muslim friend of Assad who also saw he was headed into a dead-end? Click here to read about the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s price for egocentricity.

And who is Erdogan supporting in the Palestinian Authority? Hamas. A least he is consistent by siding with losers.

It takes one democratically-elected dictator to know another.

    Rubbish article. Hamas won the Palestinian elections that were fair and square. Hamas is not more of a dictatorship then Israeli government.

    While the fairness of Iranian elections may be questionable, that remains the difference between classifying Iranian government as "legitimate" or a "dictatorship".

    As for Syria and their idiotic elections where Assad wins 99.99% of the vote, that is proof enough he is a dictator (without going into the fat that his family and clan has ruled Syria for over 40 years by oppressive means).

    You cant possible think anyone is going to take you seriously when you call someone a dictator or a dictatorship simply because you don't like them.

  3. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it very well could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  4. I understand that Hamas won the election because the voters were afraid of being killed if they did not. There was nothing fair or square in that election. Not only that, any Palestinian under Hamas who says or does anything that looks suspiciously like he/she may be friendly towards Israel, gets severely punished, even killed.

    I am surprised that NATO, Israel, Qatar and Saudi are supporting the Jihadist Terrorists in Syria who are supported by Hamas and AQ.
