What Does a "Free Palestine" Mean?

Ladies and Gentleman, when Hamas or the Palestinian Authority say they want Palestine to be free, this is what they mean:

A Hamas leader has urged supporters to redouble efforts to "liberate" Palestine because diplomacy has failed, an Israeli newspaper's Web site, Ynet, says.

"All of Palestine, from the river to the sea, will be liberated by the mujahedin (martyrs) and their rifles, not by pointless diplomatic meetings," the leader, Nizar Rian, said Thursday in Gaza.

"All of Palestine, from the river to the sea" means Palestine replaces Israel. In other words "Free Palestine" means Jews out.

This should not be a surprise because the official charters of both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority call for the destruction of Israel.

These people have no intention of negotiating for peace. That's why Arafat turned down 97% of the territory he was asking for without a counteroffer.

And, if you ever have a doubt that these organizations represent the will of the Palestinian people remember that both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority were elected, and polls show the Palestinian people support the terror campaign.
