Hamas spokesman Mahmoud Az-Zahar claimed victory for Hamas on Monday, saying Hamas had succeeded in destroying Israel's sense of security with its rocket attacks. Zahar made his proclamation in video footage sent from a secret hideout, where he is taking shelter in order to avoid being targeted in an IAF strike. Other Hamas leaders have gone into hiding as well.
Zahar directed his message to Hamas' troops, and promised them victory over the IDF. We must be patient until we are victorious, Allah will help us, he said. Hundreds of Hamas terrorists have been killed since the Cast Lead operation began last week, including 100 since the start of Israel's ground operation, and several of the group's senior leaders have been assassinated. Dozens have been taken prisoner as well.
The Hamas leader called to murder Israelis and Jews worldwide, including children. The Israelis have sentenced their children to death... They have legitimized the killing of their people all over the world, he said. Hamas' platform calls for all Jews to convert to Islam or be killed, based on an Islamic saying (Hadith), and the group has not refrained from targeting children in the past.
Hamas will destroy synagogues and Jewish schools as well, Zahar said, just as Israel destroyed mosques in Gaza. Israel bombed several mosques used to store rockets and ammunition.
Zahar suggested Hamas was prepared to seek a ceasefire, saying Hamas would discuss whatever is good for our people. He issued a list of demands, saying any ceasefire must include a complete end to IDF counterterrorism activities, Hamas control of the Gaza coast and the opening of Israeli crossings.
Israel has not offered Hamas a ceasefire, and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert recently said operations in Gaza would continue until we achieve our goals.
I’m waiting for the UN condemnations......................................................................................................................................................................................................................
Did this Mahmoud Al-Zahar say the IDF troops were committing suicide outside Gaza City, or that their stomachs were being barbecued by any chance?
I recall reading that the old rule of thumb during the Arab-Israeli wars was that the more hysterical the enemies’ propaganda blasts, the more you knew they were about to go down.
Hamas Delenda Est
With “extreme prejudice”
He even looks like a bum.
Doesn’t sound like these guys have many friends left. After all, they made the mistake of threatening Egypt and Jordan. Their Iranian and Syrian patrons show no sign of really going to bat for them and their admirers in Euroland seem rather divided and listless.
Their fans over here come off as somewhat to the south of overwhelming. Bush and Condi are going through the motions and Obama is quietly praying that it’s all over before Jan 20th.
Nor do I. “It” needs to be captured and disgraced.
I wish. Stay safe, stay armed.
Im sure somewhere in the Koran, there is probation against looking clean. Reprobates all.

Phone call from Israel to Zahar.
“Look out the window you schmuck”.
Isn’t there an IDF missile with his name on it?
Does he realize that Israel could carpet bomb Gaza flat? I’m sorry but these stupid people need to be humbled in the worst possible way just to protect their children from them. The children that they really don’t seem to give a sh!t about.
Unfortunately, you’re spot on there. Whenever the Palis are happy and confident, that’s when they’re most violent. When they’re despairing, that’s when they’re most open to reason.
Recall that, during Intefada II, before the West Bank fence was finished and the suicide bombings were at their worst, they were positively strutting.
Reminds me of Hitler in his Berlin bunker, issuing orders to non-existent armies.
Hamas must be moved to extinction. That is a prerequisite for peace in the Middle East.
No, just buying time to reload.
