First Stop on the Hamas 2011 Tour

UPDATE 1

He is supposed to visit Egypt, Sudan, Turkey, Qatar, Tunisia and Bahrain.
 According to the virulently anti-Hamas but usually reliable Palestine Press Agency website, Haniyeh is running into problems.
 Apparently, the Damascus-based Hamas leader Khaled Meshal is not happy that, after he has been talking about unity with Fatah, Haniyeh is acting like the Palestinian prime minister.
 Apparently because of pressure from Meshal, Haniyeh is meeting much lower level officials than he had hoped to. Both Qatar and Turkey asked him to postpone the trip and are not planning to receive him in any official capacity. Similarly, he has not met with political leaders in Khartoum or in Cairo. And Tunisia has informed him that he can meet with Islamic party officials but not with government officials.

Original post

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh left Gaza Sunday on a tour of several Muslim countries, his first since his militant Islamist movement seized control of the coastal enclave in June 2007. Haniyeh will visit Egypt, Sudan, Tunisia, Bahrain and Turkey, his aide Yousef Rizqah said in a statement. The aim is to garner support for the Palestinians and for Gaza Strip. And don’t forget bash Israel.

His first stop in Egypt, he was greeted with street banners and crowds of adoring Muslim Brotherhood fans. Speaking to journalists in Cairo after two days of meetings with Egyptian officials, Haniyeh slammed Israel for the “demolition of houses, villages and ethnic cleansing” in Jerusalem, pan-Arab news outlet Elaph reported. He called on Arab states to step up efforts to stop the “Judaization” of Jerusalem, a city many Palestinians see as the future capital of a Palestinian state, through financial and political means, according to Elaph. Haniyeh also mentioned the “muezzin bill,” a law that would ban the use of a PA system for the Muslim call to prayer. The Hamas prime minister said this law, as well as the issue in Jerusalem, were proof of Israel’s campaign against “Muslim symbols.”

As part of the recent celebration of its 24th anniversary, Hamas held a mass rally in Gaza in which the terror group expressed an intransigent commitment to the jihad against Israel. In his speech at the rally, Hamas’ Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh called for the establishment of “the al-Quds Army for the liberation of Palestine.”

There have been scattered reports on bits and pieces of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s speech at Hamas’ 24th anniversary rally on December 14th, but Palestinian Media Watch put it all together. It is a must-read for every Western politician and Middle East pundit – who will of course ignore and/or excuse what he says as just rhetoric.

“We say today, explicitly, so it cannot be explained otherwise, that the armed resistance and the armed struggle are the path and the strategic choice for liberating the Palestinian land, from the [Mediterranean] sea to the [Jordan] river, and for the expulsion of the invaders and usurpers [Israel] from the blessed land of Palestine. The Hamas movement will lead Intifada after Intifada until we liberate Palestine – all of Palestine, Allah willing. Allah Akbar and praise Allah. We say with transparency and in a clear manner, that Palestinian reconciliation – and all sides must know this – cannot come at the expense of [our] principles, at the expense of the resistance. These principles are absolute and cannot be disputed: Palestine – all of Palestine – is from the sea to the river. We won’t relinquish one inch of the land of Palestine. The involvement of Hamas at any stage with the interim objective of liberation of [only[ Gaza, the West Bank, or Jerusalem, does not replace its strategic view concerning Palestine and the land of Palestine.”

In an announcement published on Hamas’ official website on Monday, Hamas’ refugees department suggested that the Arab refugees would be the pioneers of the future al-Quds Army. All Arab states, and particularly those which host the refugees, were called upon to take the initiative to start building the “Arab Liberation Army.” The first steps in this direction, according to Hamas, should include recruiting volunteers to the future al-Quds Brigades in each Arab country and establishing a supreme military command which will be assigned to draw the liberation plan of Palestine militarily and politically. Hamas’ refugees department also stressed that the Palestinian people will spearhead the confrontation with Israel, saying that “We are confident that the battle to liberate al-Quds (Jerusalem) is closer than ever and that we are nearing a victory with the support of Allah.”

At what point does the resident at 1600, along with the EU decide that pushing the Israeli’s to stop building apartments and give more concessions to these terrorists is not what needs to be done? With Egypt’s rapid fall to the Islamists and the peace treaty in jeopardy, maybe its time to transfer the Gazans across the canal and annex it all, securing the south and pushing the rest across the river into Jordan.  There is no peace process with genocidal madmen aspiring die through martyrdom, it’s time the world accepts reality, and Israel lays claim to what is rightfully hers to begin with.

Stay tuned…

Christmas presents from Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Christmas presents from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. By Jeff Treesh

At what point to we advocate population transfer in the disputed territories to other Arab states, and allow Israel to annex all of it once and for all? I mean c’mon, who is Israel exactly supposed to make peace with? Certainly no one called the Palestinians.

While main stream media remained focus on a lovely time in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve, they all seemed to overlook the mortar shell was fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel on Saturday night, exploding in Eshkol Regional Council, or the two rockets that was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and exploded in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council. The Color Red alert sounded in the areas, and thankfully no injuries or damage was reported.

These were nothing compared to the hundreds fired this year or the thousands over the last decade. Now in the face of a rising Islamic extremist wave piggy backing the Arab spring that’s spreading over the middle east, a (possible) reorganization of the PLO is underway that pretty much puts Israel in it’s place with what needs to ultimately be done.

During and after this weeks meetings with Abbas and Mashaal, several mainstream media outlets like the NYT,Washington Post jumped on the story of a new pragmatic and moderate Hamas.

Boy were they completely wrong as usual.

Hamas is joining the PLO not as a result of a change in its ideology but because it wants the PLO to stick to its original platform – liberating Palestine and achieving the “right of return” for Palestinian refugees, Hamas leaders explained over the weekend.
The Hamas leaders’ clarifications came in response to claims that Hamas’s decision to join the PLO was a sign the Islamist movement was moving toward moderation and would abandon its radical ideology. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are demanding the PLO reconsider its political strategy by scrapping the Oslo Accords and its recognition of the two-state solution. Hamas’s “foreign minister” Osama Hamdan, said the decision to join the temporary PLO leadership did not mean Hamas would become part of the peace process with Israel. “Anyone who thinks Hamas has changed its positions and now accepts the PLO’s defeatist political program is living in an illusion,” Hamdan stressed. “Hamas cannot make the mistake of joining a process that has proved to be a failed one over the past 20 years.” He was quoted by the Quds Press news agency as saying Hamas’s decision to be part of a provisional PLO leadership was aimed at “reconstructing the organization and reconsidering its political program.” Hamdan emphasized that Hamas remains committed to fulfilling the aspirations of Palestinians, “first and foremost the liberation of our lands from the sea to the river and achieving the right of return.” The Hamas leader said those who believe the Palestinians could continue to pursue the PLO’s “failed” political program over the past two decades are deluding themselves. By seeking reconciliation with Fatah, Hamas hopes to achieve the Palestinians’ goal of liberating all their lands and securing the return of the refugees to their original homes inside Israel, Hamdan said.

And then there’s Islamic Jihads side of the story.

Islamic Jihad Secretary-General Ramadan Shallah also denied the decision to join the provisional PLO leadership was an indication his group would abandon its ideology.
“We still haven’t joined the PLO,” he said. “In future discussions with other factions, we will talk about incorporating Islamic Jihad into the PLO. Thursday’s meeting was just the beginning of this process.” Shallah told London-based Al- Hayat newspaper it has already been made clear no organization would be asked to abandon its program as a condition for joining the PLO. On the other hand, he added, no group has been asked to accept the PLO’s political platform as a condition for joining the organization. “In principle, there is a Palestinian consensus that the PLO is an address for all Palestinians,” Shallah said. “We are seeking to make this an appropriate address.” He said that during last week’s discussions in Cairo, PLO and PA leader Mahmoud Abbas made it clear the Palestinians would still preserve the right to “armed resistance” against Israel, despite the talk about the need for a “popular uprising.” “No one has the right to say armed resistance is illegitimate and the Palestinians cannot resort to it,” Shallah said.

Palestinians hailed the agreement as a “historic event” that would mark the beginning of a new era for the Palestinian issue. The move will pave the way for Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other radical groups to join the PLO, which has 10 members – the largest being Fatah. Other members include the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Palestinian People’s Party, the Palestine Liberation Front and the Arab Liberation Front, as well as four tiny groups aligned with Syria and with Iraq’s now defunct Ba’ath Party.

Israel immediately slammed the move, with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s spokesman Mark Regev saying that if Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas “embraces Hamas – if he walks toward Hamas, he is walking away from peace.”

I say annex now, before the next intifada comes… How many chances are we forced to give?
