Propaganda– “Resistance”

One of the key features of totalitarianism, and Islamofascism is no exception, is the distortion of language–aka propaganda. The word “resistance” is one of those catch phrases we hear a lot. Recently hizbullah–an armed terrorist gang that attacked Israel across a sovereign border, has even been using the term ‘resistance’ to refer to their activities… a further extension of the misuse of the word.

What follows is a Libyan who describes the misuse of the term: from memri.org: Libyan Reformist Writer Dr. Muhammad Al-Huni Criticizes Abuse of the Term ‘Resistance’ in Arab Political Discourse

The Types of Resistance “Rampant in the Killing Fields [of the Middle East]” “Let us now closely examine the [types of] resistance so rampant in the killing fields [of the Middle East]. “1. When Shi’ites kill Sunnis and Sunnis kill Shi’ites in Iraq merely for their [sectarian] identity, it is called ‘resistance.’ “2. When Janjaweed gangs murder unarmed civilians in Darfour, it is called ‘resistance.’ “3. When year after year, Hamas and Islamic Jihad extinguish any spark of peace which can end the suffering of the Palestinian people, it is called ‘resistance.’ “4. When Hizbullah takes an entire people hostage and refuses to obey the elected [authorities], dragging Lebanon into destruction, it is called ‘resistance.’ “5. The war which is being waged by the new global terrorism under the command of bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri and Al-Zarqawi is called ‘resistance.’ “6. The alliance between the defeated remnants of the pan-Arab nationalist chauvinists and [the defeated remnants] of the Islamists – who are both [willing to] ally themselves with any murderer – is called ‘resistance.’ “7. Establishing television channels like Al-Jazeera, which misleads the Arab public and causes [the Arabs] to wager repeatedly on the victory of the losing side – is called ‘resistance.’ “8. When distinguished Arab lawyers rally by the thousands to the defense of Saddam Hussein while neglecting his victims and disregarding their cases, it is called ‘resistance.’ “9. When people eulogize and mourn terrorists who have murdered thousands of Iraqis in the streets of [Iraqi] cities and villages, presenting them as heroes of the Arab nation, it is called ‘resistance.’ “10. When Muslim religious scholars issue fatwas permitting murder, suicide, and slaughtering of brothers and compatriots, and when [these scholars] condemn every rationalist idea as ‘stupid’… and show contempt for modernity, it is called ‘resistance.’ “11. The murder of more than 130,000 innocent Algerian citizens, and the annihilation of a whole generation of journalists, writers and thinkers in Algeria, is called ‘resistance.’ “12. Murdering tourists and bombing hotels in Egypt is called ‘resistance.’ “13. Bombing hotels in Amman and killing the bride and groom, and anyone [else] who tries to celebrate in these sad killing fields, is called ‘resistance.'”
