    Dubai killing strikes blow for decency 07 March 2010 AWU National Secretary Paul Howes opinion piece written for The Sunday Telegraph on 07 March 2010. It's fascinating how one word can change so dramatically the meaning of one sentence. Since the allegations emerged surrounding the use of Australian passports in the assassination of Hamas arms smuggler Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai it's interesting to read how different Australian journalists have referred to the man. Some journalists and commentators have taken to referring to al-Mabhouh as a "Palestinian militant" implying therefore, that he, and indeed Hamas, as a whole are some kind of national liberation movement - not unlike Fretilin in East Timor or the American revolutionaries of 1776. It's unfortunate that so few of them seem to have sat down and read Hamas' own weird, extreme conspiracy theory, fascist racist charter. Amongst other things, the charter repeatedly names the Freemasons, Lions and Rotary clubs as Zionist fronts, saying that all are actually spying outfits using Jewish money to take control of the world and make movies and create other PR events to, amongst other things, undermine the morality of the good Muslim woman! So categorising al-Mabhouh and Hamas as "militants" or "national liberation fighters" is not just plain wrong, it provides a cover for Hamas to hide the reality of this ugly Islamo-fascist terrorist organisation under the cloak of international law. Let's be clear: the death of al-Mabhouh is a positive outcome for those who believe in peace and justice. --Hamas and al-Mabhouh stand against all these values - values we hold dear. Therefore, it is in our nation's interest to do whatever we can to remove these vile people from power - by any means necessary.
