'Israel will eventually disappear'

Senior Hamas leader tells Italian newspaper pullout plan a temporary solution; says Palestine will become a Muslim state
By Dian Bahur-Nir and Ali Waked

Mahmoud al-Zahar

Hamas will not compromise on one inch of Greater Palestine, Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar told an Italian newspaper earlier this week.

Speaking to the Corriere Della Sera newspaper, al-Zahar said Hamas would "definitely not" be prepared for coexistence with Israel should the IDF retreat to its 1967 borders.

"It can be a temporary solution, for a maximum of 5 to 10 years. But in the end Palestine must return to become Muslim, and in the long term Israel will disappear from the face of the earth."

Go to hell

Asked about Hamas's intentions to carry out terror attacks in coordination with the disengagement plan, al-Zahar said Hamas has already promised not to initiate violence, and that the group's actions would be in response to Israeli actions.

"We won't disrupt the Israeli withdrawal, let them get out of here and go to hell," he said. "The problem will be afterwards, because in the hearts of every Palestinian, the liberation of Gaza must be accompanied by the liberation of Jerusalem and the West Bank."

London attack

Al-Zahar said the London bombings, whiched occured during the interview, are to be expected in countries that support the United States.

"It's no wonder today they have found terror attacks in their home," he said. "I am opposed to attacks against civilians, whoever they are, but why not tell it like it is - if the British soldiers were not in Baghdad and Bazra – there would be mercy for London today."

However, a-Zahar stopped short of supporting the attack on the London Underground, but tried to "explain" the acts of suicide bombers..

"There is a broad popular people's movement against American arrogant hegemony. World leaders, headed by the Bush and Blair governments, should have been more attentive to the voice of poorer countries."

Foreign Ministry protests

In Israel, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom provided a translation of part of the interview and parts of the Hamas consitution Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom for European Union envoy Javier Solana, in an attempt to explain Israel's rejection fo negotioations with Hamas.

The Ministry has also embarked on a campaign to discourage Europeans from dealing with Hamas, including an English translation of Hamas's convention, to be distributed to diplomats in a bid to illustrate the movement's radical and dangerous character to the attention of decision makers throughout the world.

"Now, when Europe has offered to recognize Hamas on a political level, al-Zahar provides clear statements of what to expect from the organization," Ministry officials told Ynet. "He does not even attempt to speak ambiguously in an attempt to please Europe and finds it difficult to hide the group's happiness at the London bombings."

Mahmoud al-Zahar is speaking openly to those who have ears to hear. Arik, al-Zahar has got to be proud of you. But can you push the Israelis into the sea a bit faster? Thanks Arik.

The palestinians will start a war before they're really ready (arabs always start wars before they're really ready). And then the Israelis will kick the living crap out of them.

Lemme see, how many groups in history have said the Jews will disappear...there were the assyrians, the babylonians, the romans, the nazis....and they're all thriving cultures in the 21st century...

Buy a clue from the pages of history, folks.

"He does not even attempt to speak ambiguously in an attempt to please Europe and finds it DIFFICULT TO HIDE the group's HAPPINESS at the London bombings."


Psalms - Chapter 27

Psa 27:1 [[[A Psalm] of David.]] The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psa 27:2 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Psa 27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.

Psa 27:4 One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

Psa 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

LOL, isn't that the truth. I keep wondering how long the PLO [read PA or other assorted Terrorist flavors] are going to wait before they flub up their latest "reward (Yesha) for terror"?! I still can't help but feel that while Arik/Peres is trying to give away more land [Yesha] we are going to see other Arab nations [Iran, Syria, etc] move in for the kill. And then, as you say, we'll kick the living crap out of them. When one rewards terror one gets more terror.

World leaders on Friday concluded an economic summit shaken by terrorism, offering an "alternative to the hatred" - a $50 billion aid package for Africa and up to $9 billion in additional support for the Palestinians

You're correct.

But, Israel STILL wins in the end...no matter WHAT we do. I don't EVER want us to stop supporting Israel, though...NEVER!

Not according to my Bible. Hamas is going to be vaporized.
