ISIS in Gaza – When One Radical Group Believes Another Is Not Radical Enough

It is always dreamlike to see one Islamist terror group accuse the other of being too “lenient” when it comes to enforcing sharia laws. But it is not dreamlike when a terrorist group starts threatening writers and women.

That is what is happening these days in the Gaza Strip, where supporters of the Islamic State are accusing Hamas of failing to impose strict Islamic laws on the Palestinian population — as if Hamas has thus far endorsed a liberal and open-minded approach toward those who violate sharia laws.

    Kerry will call on both sides to exercise restraint.

    • No doubt.

      I can hear it now. God help us if the next US president acts like Obama on foreign affairs. And it is entirely possible.

        The method for selecting the American president needs to be revamped.
        Selling lottery tickets would produce better results when you look at who came after Truman and Ike.

    Seems like the Times of Terror after the French Revolution gave us a pretty good blueprint for the escalation of gruesome violence. The Girondins were too lenient in the eyes of Jacobins. The scenario repeated itself during Red Terror after Bolshevik seized power. “Cheka”, the first Soviet Secret Police meant “Extraordinary Commission”. It was to suppress the violent SR anarchists that were shooting at Bolsheviks (after Fanny Kaplan shot Lenin). It grew up into a killing machine, slaughtering everyone who even potentially could be a problem for the Bolshevik rule – like the Tsar’s immediate family. By the 1930’s the Chekists were killing each other: Yezhov killed Yagoda, Beria killed Yezhov. Beria himself was executed by Khruschev in secret for crimes against “Soviet Law”. What’s happening in the Middle East simple confirms that in the matters of Terror, the most depraved degenerates will eventually take over the “business”. Ask any Mafioso !

    “More Islamic than thou!” seems to be their motto.
    That’s the main reason why Islam cannot be reformed. The more stringent interpretation of Islam is always enforced by violence. Kerry is sure learning a lot about Islam. By the time he’s done, he may have read some books that actually explain jihad to him…but that’s verboten as we know. (He’ll need to read them secretly.)

      I do not think Kerry is capable of learning ANYTHING. He’s not too bright.

    When one radical group believes another is not radical enough”.

    One can say the same thing about leftist politics with the Michal Brown and New York City riots. WIth CNN and the NewYork Times pushing the agenda, being a normal leftist is still not radical enough.

    Hamas’s demise will come from ISIS not from Israel nor from the west. Dangerous times are still ahead for Israel and we need to support Israel at all cost.
