The cruelty of the public execution of a young man, as was the case with Vittorio Arrigoni, is always awful. This much is clear. What isn’t clear to the European public is that it is patently evident that the killers were Arrigoni’s old Islamic Jihadists friends from Gaza. But they could have been Afghanis, or Iraqis. In 2002, Daniel Pearl was killed in Karachi by similar methods because he was a Jew; in 2004, the decapitation of American Nick Berg in Iraq was filmed, the Jihadists said, “to send a clear message to the West;” the Italian Fabrizio Quattrocchi was executed because he was “an enemy of God, an enemy of Allah,” and Vittorio Arrigoni, as his butchers say in the video in the words that scrolled across the screen, because “he was spreading Western immorality in Gaza” and because “Italy fights against Islamic countries.” It has been repeated again and again that Hamas, with whom Arrigoni was on friendly terms, has condemned the crime. But in actual fact, it doesn’t matter if the assassins were members of Hamas or not. They have been, they will be, they are all controlled by Hamas. Hamas is always top dog in Gaza.
Hamas is responsible for the captivity of Gilad Shalit. It was responsible for the armed destruction of the UN recreational camp for children, which did not abide by Islamic dictates. It was responsible for arresting 150 women under the accusation of witchcraft and the execution of several of them. It is Hamas that has introduced laws on the death penalty, whipping, cutting off hands and crucifixion, according to Sharia. Hamas killed the 32-year old Christian book salesman Rami Khader Ayyad, guilty of selling Bibles. Not all those who carry out Hamas’s operations, or those who fire Qassam missiles into Israel, are “members” of the terrorist organization that rules Gaza. Indeed, at times Hamas pretends to fight them.
Hamas is a movement, a party, a fundamentalist affiliation. Its charter stipulates that it wants to destroy the Jewish State, to exterminate Jews, and impose an Islamic caliphate on the entire world. Salafite fringes and those aligned more with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt — influenced to a greater or lesser extent by Iran or Al Qaeda and based in the Gaza Strip — join up and leave Hamas routinely. The fact that Hamas has now disowned the killers of Arrigoni is not of the slightest importance. In any case, they were still employed by Hamas as members of the Al Qassam Brigades.
