Hamas editor wants anthrax in
"Turn the bodies of the tyrants into
matches", he writes

The 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.
Atallah 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
Hamas – 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 live.
"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 wretchedness.
"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
"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."
As of 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.
