Dee Snider, the lead singer of heavy metal band Twisted Sister and a total rock icon, recently did the most rock and roll thing ever be eschewing the typical left-wing position of backing Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas by supporting Israel, especially the Israel Defense Forces use of his band’s biggest hit, “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as they strike back at the vile miscreants who slaughtered innocent civilians in their country in the early part of October.
“The assault on the Israelis…People are losing sight of something, you know? People are saying that ‘oh, the response is going to be too intense for what happened.’ Well, you don’t get to decide on the response, people, when you do heinous things to civilians. You don’t get to say ‘Oh that’s enough retaliation.’ No, it doesn’t work like that,” Snider said in a statement made to TMZ.
The dude is right on the money. You can’t just give a bunch of evil religious zealots who murdered over a thousand people in your country a slap on the wrist and that be enough. No, Hamas needs to be eliminated. Part of the mission of radical Islamic terrorist groups is to engage in jihad, or holy war, with the “People of the Book,” a reference the Quran makes to both Jews and Christians. They are to eliminate them as their enemies of the faith, as “infidels.” And they will not back down until they accomplish that mission.
Thus, wiping them out is the only option, plain and simple.
Snider, whose father is Jewish, then said, “When you crossed that line, you’re burning people, you’re slaughtering people, you’re raping people, you’re just killing people – and that’s what happened with that festival. You don’t get to say ‘Okay, your revenge can be this much.’ No, payback’s a mother-fer.”
That’s so freaking metal.
The comments from Snider come hot on the heels of the IDF continuing its military operations against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. As part of their strikes this week, the IDF hit one of Gaza City’s largest hospitals, known as Al-Shifa, showcasing evidence the facility was being used to house weapons for Hamas.

“During searches inside one of the hospital’s wards, the troops located a room containing unique technological means, combat equipment, and military equipment used by the Hamas terrorist organization,” the IDF went on to say in a statement.
Unfortunately, in the past, Snider has also sided consistently with leftists on a number of important topics and issues, which kind of puts a damper on the awesomeness of his comments here, but nonetheless, where there is common ground, unite, right?
Hopefully, Snider will have some sort of awakening and move more to the right politically speaking. After all, the right is about individualism, being your own person, and not being controlled by the government. What could be more rock and roll than that? I can’t think of anything. Rock and liberty should be good bed fellows, though a few individuals in the industry don’t see it that way.
