Israel Is The Cause Of Islamic Fundamentalism!

Ben White, writing for the Guardian, expresses “concern about the direction the Hamas government is taking with regard to social freedoms and a religiously driven ‘virtue’ promotion campaign.”, and its “forced Islamisation”
“This context includes a young woman accosted by Hamas police on the beach, who then roughed up her male companions. It has also meant the harassment of shopkeepers displaying mannequins and lingerie packets. The background is a "virtue campaign" organised by the religious affairs ministry, which, in the words of the Hamas deputy religious affairs minister, is intended to ‘keep [people] away from sin’.”

And here’s where it starts to get funny!
“While the rare incidents of physical violence are condemned by senior Hamas leaders…”
Um, first of all, acts of violence committed by Hamas are not rare. Secondly I don’t think I’ve ever once heard of a ‘senior Hamas leader’ condemning any other Hamas member for being violent, in fact they're usually the ones that order the violence. White goes on to ask, about the ‘virtue campaign’:
“But why is this happening now? One answer is that these developments in Gaza are a consequence of the state of siege that the tiny territory has been under – a society that has been fenced-in, starved, and seen its very fabric torn apart by unemployment and wanton military destruction. In the words of a Gaza human rights worker, isolation bred ‘extremism and dark ideas’.”
So, basically, this Islamic oppression, that has been going on for hundreds of years in many Muslim countries (note – Iran), is because of Israel?!
“Already hit by criticism in Gaza by Islamic Jihad about a theoretical willingness to negotiate with Israel, it is possible that Hamas's leaders are seeking to safeguard its credibility and among the radical jihadist groups by off-balancing improving international relations with a domestic hard line.”
Hey, don’t bring us into this, Hamas has never said anything to us about a willingness to negotiate! And part of the reason Hamas has ‘credibility among the radical jihadist groups’ is because of its already ‘domestic hard line’. “The trend in Gaza is also a reflection of the limitations of Hamas's political vision and” bla bla bla. No, you idiot, it’s because, according to Hamas, Allah said so in the Koran! What White is saying is practically blasphemy! If Hamas saw that he was pinning the 'blame' of Islamic ‘virtue’ on Israel, they’d behead him!
