Well, actually HAMMAS, a misspelled version of Hamas, listed by the U.S. as a terrorist organization, on a New York State license plate that the DMV says it’s revoking because it is offensive to Americans and politically-charged. (How long until we see beheadings in the streets of NYC?)
NY 1 (h/t DM) The plate reads HAMMAS, and was spotted on a black Dodge that was parked in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, Wednesday and had a Palestinian flag spread across the windshield. The DMV says the plate should not have been issued. “We are pulling this plate off the road as patently offensive,” Jackie McGinnis of the state Department of Motor Vehicles said in a statement. “The group represented by the name on the plate is also on the list of entities designated by the U.S. Government as a terrorist organization.” DMV regulations say the agency can refuse to issue a license plate it deems obscene, derogatory or offensive.
No information as to the owner of the car displaying the plate, but you can bet it’s a Muslim.
In the photo above, we see AL-QASSM under the plate which likely is another misspelling for Al-Qassam (Brigades), the military arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, which now is the military arm of Hamas. According to a bulletin issued by Al-Qassam on its 20th anniversary, the number of members in Gaza alone exceeds 10,000. Al-Qassam has four brigades: Northern Gaza Brigade, Gaza Brigade, Central Gaza Brigade and Southern Gaza Brigade.
