Hamas editor wants anthrax in U.S. water
'Turn the bodies of the tyrants into
matches,' he writes

editor of Al-Risala, a weekly newspaper published by a leading Mideast
terror organization, has called for the introduction of anthrax into
all U.S. drinking water supplies.
Abu Al-Subh, who writes open letters to prominent figures, ideologies
and events, titled his most recent letter, No. 163, "To Anthrax,"
according to a translation provided by
the Middle East Media Research Institute, based in Washington, D.C.
also known as the "Islamic Resistance Movement" – is a
Palestinian-based terrorist group that has received financing and
assistance from Iran, Syria, Iraq, the Palestinians and other Middle
Eastern governments in the past.
"The truth is that I wondered how to begin! Should I
greet you (i.e., anthrax), or should I curse you? Should I hold my
tongue? ... I will begin by saying: Oh, anthrax, despite your
wretchedness, you have sown horror in the heart of the lady of
arrogance, of tyranny, of boastfulness! Your gentle touch has made the
United States' life rough and pointless. You have filled the lady who
horrifies and terrorizes the world with fear, and her feet almost fail
to bear [her weight] in horror and fear of you. Because of you, she has
lost confidence in the moment in which she lives, or in which she will
"You have entered the most fortified of places; [you
have entered] the White House, and they left it like horrified mice. Up
until a short time ago, this place was the address of the power of
brutality, or of the brutality of power! Verily, the owner of that
house said, 'Woe to any who dare even to glance at it with a hint of
rage.' But you have turned all this into vanity, weakness, and
"By Allah, are you really so deadly?! Do you not fear
America's intercontinental missiles? Do you not fear the torpedo
missiles with nuclear warheads, and cluster bombs? Do you not fear the
Swift Sword (Omani-British wargames) that Britain drew forth from its
scabbard to stab into the heart of our honor in Muscat (Oman's
capital), with the agreement of the great sultan, who had no shame in
carrying out such a deed? Do you not fear the lady of terror's
destroyers that cross the Suez Canal ...?
"The Pentagon was a monster before you entered its
corridors. ... And behold, it now transpires that its men are of paper
and its commanders are of cardboard, and they hasten to flee as soon as
they see – only see – chalk dust! There are those who think that I
exaggerate, but I do not think so. This horror that you have sown –
you, the delicate, the uncomplicated, the miserable – in the heart of
the bloodsucker (the U.S.) ... makes me think as I do. You do not come
like a storm, but they see you as one – a terrible storm that destroys
everything. They run from you in all directions, and their tongues
mumble, 'My life, my life.' Our hearts, repressed, exiled and
oppressed, were filled with belief that Allah is capable of defeating
America by means of the weakest of his earthly soldiers, after he used
you to sow horror in their hearts. ...
"I swear that your story is peculiar. The Americans
see you as an imminent attack that is about to shake the lady with the
proboscises that suck the blood of the peoples. ... All [the rulers of
Arab and Islamic countries] tell [the U.S.] every time she farts,
'Allah bless you.' Nevertheless, you have found your way to only eight
American breasts so far. ...
"You make the U.S. appease us and hint to us at a
rosy future and a life of ease ... through a [new] Marshall Plan. Why?
Because of our beautiful eyes? Or out of fear that we will turn into
anthrax and harm the apple of [the U.S.'s] eye and heart, Tel Aviv ...?
Without permission, you enter the halls of their courthouses as if you
intended to push the symbols of their sovereignty into the mud of worry
and fear. ...
"In sound mind, I thank you and confess that I like
you; I like you very much. May you continue to advance, to permeate and
to spread. If I may give you a word of advice: Enter the air of those
'symbols,' the water faucets from which they drink and the pens with
which they draft their traps and conspiracies against the wretched
peoples. ... Turn the bodies of the tyrants into matches burning slowly
and gradually so that they understand that the truth belongs to Allah
and that they should give those entitled to rights their rights.
"Then, and only then, will you return to your place.
... I hope that we only hear about you when you enter the body of every
base man among the arrogant and their agents. Do not enter the bodies
of the wretched, like that aging nurse. Peace be upon the oppressed."
Nov. 2, the Hamas organization was added to the list of other such
groups outlined in Executive Order 13224, which authorizes U.S. action
against certain terrorist groups.
