So what is new here? Any questions? How can Israel possibly make peace with an Islamic movement in Gaza, Samaria, and Judea, ("Palestine" - a vicious euphemism for Israel) whose sole reason for existence is to destroy them (as commanded in the Quran)?
There are approximately seven hundred verses in more than fifty Qur'anic suras that have direct and explicit negative references to the Jews; together with the other major books of Islam, they comprise in total 9 percent of the total Shari'a. The characterizations employed against Jews are situated in the attitude toward the "other" that al-Wala wal-Bara perpetuates.
Jews are cursed forever, having been transformed into apes and swine (or apes alone). The ultimate sin committed by the Jews is that they are the devil's minions, and if they do not accept the true faith of Islam, they will burn in hellfire. Jews conceal the truth, being "the vilest of all creatures," most wicked with hearts harder than stones. By perverting the words of God, Jews corrupted the scriptures and killed the prophets. Jews are "fond of lies," "devour the forbidden," and are "cowards, vulgar, and fools." They are the worst of God's creation; rats are, in fact, "mutated Jews." From an operational standpoint, the Hadith takes these views and offers a prescription for their application (albeit sometime in the future): (source: MEF)The hour will not be established until you fight the Jews, and the stone and the tree behind which a Jew will be hiding will say: "O Muslim! O Servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, so come and kill him."
Has Obama asked Israel to cede the point yet?
Haniyeh: Palestinians will not recognize Israel Ma'an News AgencyManon 25/06/2013 (updated) 27/06/2013GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Tuesday that Palestinians would not recognize Israel, despite the siege on Gaza and two wars.
"We had two wars in which hundreds of people died, and thousands of acres of land were destroyed, but Palestinians did not and will not recognize Israel," the Gaza premier said as he welcomed international activists to the enclave.
Haniyeh said Israel's blockade aimed to limit the influence of the Islamic model outside the Gaza Strip, and to isolate Palestine in an attempt to force Palestinians to recognize Israel and accept the conditions of the Mideast Quartet.
The premier thanked activists who came to Palestine, describing solidarity visits as a holy duty, and he urged more supporters to come.
Haniyeh said aid groups who visited Gaza in solidarity had a political and a humanitarian message, showing that Gaza did not stand alone.
"These groups, along with the help of God and the Palestinian steadfastness, eased the siege," he added.
The Hamas leader highlighted his government's efforts to generate support for Jerusalem.
"The (Israeli) occupation built a hundred synagogues around al-Aqsa to deceive the world and falsify facts," he added.
Haniyeh also called on Palestinians to support of the Arab and Palestinian prisoners of Israel, particularly those on hunger strike.
