Skip to comments.Hamas Leader: No Recognition, No Negotiation, No Peace
Posted on 01/15/2006 3:33:21 PM PST by SJackson
The Hamas terror organization, expected to garner as much as 50% of the vote in the PA parliamentary election scheduled for next week, remains steadfast in its goal of annihilating the Jewish state.
The leader of the group in Gaza, Mahmoud A-Zahar, recently rebutted charges that the Hamas was taking a more pragmatic stance ahead of the PA parliamentary elections, and that it would be willing to recognize Israel within the countrys pre-1967 boundaries.
On January 13, A-Zahar said at a rally in Khan Yunis that the Hamas would not enter into negotiations with Israel in light of the Oslo accords, which he says, after 10 years, proves that negotiations are only an illusion. He declared that the Hamas still holds true to pursuing jihad or holy war with Israel and the liberation of all of Palestine.
A-Zahar went on to negate any form of cooperation with Israel, which he referred to as the Zionist occupier. He characterized the Jewish state as an enemy, not a neighbor, friend, or partner.
A-Zahar outlined his partys electoral platform as follows:
· Islam is the source and ultimate authority for the Hamas
· The entire land of Palestine, every inch of it, is the property of the Islamic and Arabic nation that can never be relinquished.
· The right of return of Palestinian refugees is a legitimate right. Every Palestinian is entitled to decide when and how to return to his homeland.
· Continuation of the struggle (against Israel) in all of its manifestations.
The Hamas leader added that once the elections were over, his party would instill the significance of the struggle in the minds of our children and teach them that it is forbidden to compromise on any aspect of it.
A-Zahars steadfast approach, appeared to contradict that of Sheikh Mohammed Abu Tir, a Hamas candidate for parliament from Jerusalem. A-Zahar spent much of the last thirty years of his life in Israeli prisons for terror activities stemming from activity in the Hamas military wing, Iz Al-Din Al-Kassam. He was released from prison six months ago and recruited onto the Hamas election list.
The use of the word struggle, in the platform does not necessarily refer to weapons and the use of force," Abu Tir said.
To which I would respond,
Number each square km of Gaza and the West Bank. Each Israeli killed by terrorism would lead to loss of one square KM, and evacuation of all arabs from that land.
The terrorism will end, or Gaza and the West Bank as separate entities will end. Where will the people go? Not my problem. Surely the Muslim countries which support terrorism have a little extra space to compensate the dispossed for their losses. If not, then Rachael Corrie them.
Maybe that means it's really only half of the "palestinians" who need to be exterminated.....
Sounds like the fool has been a rappin with "No Justice No Peace" Maxine Waters on the downlow.
I wish Israel would nuke those SSMF(s)PA.(musklums)
As I See It,
If Hamas wins elections, I recommend Israel agree to their declared state of war, kill every gun toter, and expel every last one of them.
A-Zahar watch out for those helio flying up behind you.
If you attack the Israeli now, Spoils of war, prevails...no Pity.
A complete contradiction to a post from earlier today.
I believe the later one myself.
I recognize Hamas, it's leadership and even it's militant members...
...as TARGETS OF OPPORTUNITY!!!
