Qatar's emir visits Gaza as guest of jubilant Hamas

In a dramatic development that augurs a Mideast realignment, Qatar's emir Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani visited the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, and committed to giving $400 million to the Hamas leadership for building and infrastructure projects. The move is a final step in a process that began with the conflict in Syria. For years, Iran has been providing Hamas with money and weapons to be used one day in an attack on Israel. This never made any sense, but it was part of the erotic wet dream of Iran's senior leadership that they could become the new leaders of the Muslim world, somewhat in the same way that the Ottoman empire led the Muslim world for centuries. Hamas has been willing to take Iran's money, but there was no way that Sunni Hamas would ever relinquish any control to Shia Iran. Even though the arrangement never made sense, it continued for years, but began to collapse with the conflict in Syria. For almost two years, Syria's president Bashar al-Assad has been conducting massive extermination attacks on innocent Arab women and children in their homes in Syria's cities, and Hamas is unable to support al-Assad in that extermination effort. Hamas had a very close relationship with al-Assad because of their shared "resistance" to Israel, and even had Hamas' headquarters in Damascus, the capital of Syria. But gradually last year Hamas cut ties to Syria, moving its headquarters to Doha, the capital of Qatar. Guardian (London)

Sheik Hamad ostentatiously snubs West Bank (Fatah) Palestinians

In his visit to Gaza, Qatar's Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani called for a reconciliation between the two Palestinian organizations, Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Fatah in the West Bank.

"The Palestinian cause ... remains a bleeding wound in the Arab body as Israel continues every day to change the face of Palestinian land through its settlement activities and Judaisation in the occupied West Bank and especially in Jerusalem.

Surely you realise that your division [between Hamas and Fatah] is the source of greater harm to your cause and the cause of all Arabs. It is time you end the chapter of differences and open a wide chapter for reconciliation."

In fact, Sheik Hamad has ostentatiously snubbed the West Bank leaders. I've written several times in the past that the al-Jazeera news channel, headquartered in Doha and funded by Qatar, appears to hate the West Bank even more than it hates Israel, and Tuesday's visit by Sheik Hamad seems to confirm that observation.

Qatar's sponsorship of Hamas effectively ends the Gaza blockade

Since Israeli/Egyptian blockade of Gaza began five years ago, the importation of building materials into Gaza has been strictly controled, since they can be used to build weapons and bunkers as well as people's homes. However, Egypt will permit the construction materials that Qatar is funding to pass through the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt, effectively ending the blockade of Gaza.

As I've written many times, Generational Dynamics predicts that there will be a new Mideast war between Arabs and Jews, re-fighting the the war that followed the 1948 partitioning of Palestine and the creatioin of the state of Israel. This war will engulf the whole region, and become a sectarian wars between Sunnis and Shia. Hamas's split with Iran, Syria's sectarian conflict, and Tuesday's visit to Gaza by Qatar's emir, aligned with Egypt's president Morsi's agreement to effectively end the blockade, are all a part of a major realignment in Mideast politics that moves us closer to that Mideast war.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews spreads filth after Monday's debate

After Monday's debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, MSNBC's commentator Chris Matthews called Romney supporters racists:

"I think they hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al Qaeda. Their No. 1 enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred, hatred for Obama. And we can go into that about the white working class in the South and looking at these numbers we're getting the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases … this isn't about being a better president, they want to get rid of this president,"

This guy is so far in the sewer that it's a disgrace to America that he occupies a prominent position that permits him to spread his filth as much as he wants. The Hill
