Some of my readers apparently believe that I'm hyping the more pungently anti-Semitic aspects of Hezbollah and Hamas philosophy. So as a public service, I thought I would periodically post excerpts from their writings, in order to let people judge for themselves. Here is a paragraph from Article 28 of the Hamas charter:

The Zionist invasion is a cruel invasion, which has no scruples whatsoever; it uses every vicious and vile method to achieve its goals. In its infiltration and espionage operations, it greatly relies on secret organizations which grew out of it, such as the Freemasons, the Rotary Clubs, the Lions and other such espionage groups. All these organizations, covert or overt, work for the interests of Zionism and under its direction, and their aim is to break societies, undermine values, destroy people's honor, create moral degeneration and annihilate Islam. [Zionism] is behind all types of trafficking in drugs and alcohol, so as to make it easier for it to take control and expand.
