THE STATE OF PALESTINE?
Hamas leader: We want Palestine in its entirety
March 17, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently declared that ‘removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle’ in the Koran.
Speaking to Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV on March 8, Al-Zahar also made clear, ‘Our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less.’
The comments were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
‘Allah says (in the Koran): ‘And drive them out from wherever they have driven you out,’’ said Al-Zahar, who added that the Jews ‘drove out’ the Arabs ‘from within the 1948 borders’.
‘So you should drive them out from within the 1948 borders, like they drove you out,’ he continued. ‘Hence, removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle, because it appears in the Book of Allah.’
‘Our dispute with the Palestinian factions that talk about the 1967 borders is one pertaining to faith,’ claimed Al-Zahar.
He further urged members of the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad never to mention the term ‘1967 borders’ and added, ‘We have liberated Gaza, part of Palestine, but I am not prepared to accept just Gaza…our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less.’…”(Genesis 15:18 states: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates” and in Joshua 1:4 we read: “From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.” These verses encompass all of the land modern Israel currently possesses, plus all of the land of the Palestinians (the West Bank and Gaza), plus some of Egypt and Syria, plus all of Jordan, plus some of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Israel currently possesses only a fraction of the land God has promised. See the next four reports.)
Hamas said set to recognize Palestine on 1967 borders, but not Israel
March 9, 2017 — The Times of Israel reports: “Hamas is reportedly planning to endorse a state of Palestine along the 1967 borders — a move that would be a monumental shift from the group’s long-held policy of reclaiming all of historic Palestine — though it won’t recognize Israel’s legitimacy.
The new policy will be announced in amendments to Hamas’s charter that is to be published in April, after the group’s political bureau completes its internal elections, the Pan-Arab daily a-Sharq al-Awsat reported Tuesday, citing sources within the Islamist terror group.
The new policy is being crafted in order to engage regional and international partners, such as Egypt, the report said.
The report follows a number of statements by senior Hamas leaders in recent months to the effect that the group will recognize the 1967 borders, but not the State of Israel.
Hamas is a terror group that seeks the destruction of Israel and has fought three major rounds of conflict against it since seizing Gaza in 2007. Over the years, it has fired thousands of rockets into Israel, tunneled under the border to carry out attacks, and orchestrated suicide bombings that have killed hundreds of Israelis…”
Canadian imam: Jews have ‘no right to Palestine’
March 2, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “An imam in Montreal, Canada, gave a sermon in which he described Jews as ‘slayers of the prophets’ who ‘have no historical right to Palestine’.
The sermons were delivered by Sheikh Wael Al-Ghitawi at the Al-Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal in November of 2014. They in posted by the Alrahma Qanat channel on YouTube and translated this week by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Another imam at the mosque, Sayed Al-Ghitawi, delivered a sermon that year in which he prayed for the victory of the Mujahideen in Palestine and everywhere in the world, and for the ultimate destruction of the ‘cursed Jews’. He also prayed that the wives of the Jews will be widows and their children orphans…”
Chinese President calls for Palestinian state
March 22, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday called for peace between Israel and an independent Palestinian state ‘as soon as possible’ during a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
‘A peaceful, stable and developing Middle East is the common interest of all parties… China appreciates that the Israeli side will continue to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian issue on the basis of the ‘two-state solution,’ ‘Xi said, according to AFP.
‘As soon as possible, (I hope) the two countries will live in peace and coexistence,’ he added.
Netanyahu said Israel was willing to see China play a bigger role in Middle East affairs, the report said.
This is not the first time that China’s President has called for the creation of a Palestinian state as part of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Last year, Xi stated that his country supports the creation of a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, based on the pre-1967 borders…”
Abbas: World terror will remain until Palestinian conflict solved
March 17, 2017 — The Times of Israel reports: “Terrorism won’t be eradicated until the Palestinian issue is settled, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday, expressing hope that recent meetings with US President Donald Trump’s team would lead to ‘peace’ in the region.
‘The world is completely convinced that neither could the events taking place around us and across the world nor the issue of terrorism can be handled without solving the Palestinian question,’ he said at a press conference in Ramallah with Bosnian President Mladen Ivanić, according to a transcript from official Palestinian news outlet Wafa.
Palestinians and their supporters often link the Israeli Palestinian conflict as a catalyst for terror groups who sow hatred and destruction in the Middle East and the world. Israeli officials reject the linkage, pointing out that extremist terror preceded the creation of Israel and many ills plaguing the world have no relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict…”
PM: Persians didn’t succeed in killing Jews in days of Haman, won’t succeed today
March 13, 2017 — The Jerusalem Post reports: “Just as the Persians did not succeed in killing the Jews in antiquity, neither will the Iranians succeed today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday night before the reading of the megila (The Book of Esther) in the central synagogue in Caesarea.
Before the traditional reading, Netanyahu, surrounded by his security detail and little children in costume, turned to the children and said: ‘What is the holiday about, what do we celebrate, what do we remember, what did they try to do to us then?’ ‘Kill us,’ a number of the children replied.
‘Where?’ Netanyahu asked.
‘In Persia,’ they answered.
‘Did they succeed? the prime minister asked.
‘No,’ one child said, ‘the opposite happened.’
‘It didn’t happen,’ Netanyahu echoed, ‘the opposite happened. Also, today they want to destroy us from Persia; they will not succeed.’…” (Prime Minister Netanyahu is correct. Jehovah God loves the Jews – Deuteronomy 7:7 – 8: “The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you…” Jesus chose to be placed by the Holy Spirit into a Jewish virgin. The Jews are God’s Elect – Isaiah 42:1; 45:4; 65:9 & 22. The message of salvation was to the Jews first — Romans 1:16. Christians should honor God’s special people and get rid of all anti-Semitism and hatred. See the next two reports.)
Islamic State Urges Jihadis To ‘Dress Up Like Jews’ And Carry Out Terror Attacks
March 2, 2017 — Breitbart.com reports: “Islamic State radicals are urging Western supporters to carry out terror attacks against Jewish communities by dressing up as Jews and using bombs, knives and – in the ultimate irony – the Israeli martial art of Krav Maga.
‘IF YOU’RE STILL IN THE WEST! Dress up like a Jew! Go to your nearest Jewish area! Make sure you have plenty of weapons under your coat! Then unleash the pain of the Muslims upon these A.P.E.S!!!’ a message on the ISIS-linked Telegram channel ‘Lone Mujahid’ reportedly reads.
The chat room aims to help budding terrorists carry out ‘lone-wolf’ attacks by providing PDFs and instructional videos on everything from the correct way to stab somebody to instructions for how to build a bomb. Incredibly, and without any apparent intention at satire, there are even full-length tutorials on Krav Maga, a martial art invented by Israelis that is based on Israeli military training.
Another post on the channel contains a list of Jewish communities in the UK accompanied by a photo of Amedy Coulibaly, the terrorist responsible for killing a policewoman in Paris along with four hostages at the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket.
Late last year, Lone Mujahid posted a call urging fanatics to launch attacks on Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year…”
‘Israelis are human waste. We must get rid of them’
March 12, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Ahmed Daqamseh, the Jordanian soldier who opened fire on a group of students who were visiting the ‘Island of Peace’ of Naharayim on March 13, 1997, as part of a class trip, killing seven Israeli schoolgirls justified his murderous actions Sunday after being released from prison five years early.
‘The Israelis are the human waste which the nations of the world vomited up before us,’ Daqamseh told Jordanian media less than a day after his release. ‘Unfortunately, they occupy the purest land after Mecca and Medina.’
‘We must eliminate this waste by incineration or by burial,’ Daqamseh added.
Daqamseh relayed a message of continuous war with Israel to the Jordanian people. ‘Do not believe the lie of normalization with the Zionist entity. Do not believe the lie of the two-state solution. Palestine is one, from the sea to the river, from Rosh Hanikra to Um Rash-Rash. They forged the names of the cities, and unfortunately, many Arabs say ‘the State of Israel.’ There cannot be a State of Israel…”
