'Israel will eventually disappear'

Senior Hamas leader tells Italian newspaper pullout plan a temporary solution; says Palestine will become a Muslim state
By Dian Bahur-Nir and Ali Waked

Hamas will not compromise on one inch of Greater Palestine, Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar told an Italian newspaper earlier this week.

Speaking to the Corriere Della Sera newspaper, al-Zahar said Hamas would "definitely not" be prepared for coexistence with Israel should the IDF retreat to its 1967 borders.

"It can be a temporary solution, for a maximum of 5 to 10 years. But in the end Palestine must return to become Muslim, and in the long term Israel will disappear from the face of the earth."

Asked about Hamas's intentions to carry out terror attacks in coordination with the disengagement plan, al-Zahar said Hamas has already promised not to initiate violence, and that the group's actions would be in response to Israeli actions.

"We won't disrupt the Israeli withdrawal, let them get out of here and go to hell," he said. "The problem will be afterwards, because in the hearts of every Palestinian, the liberation of Gaza must be accompanied by the liberation of Jerusalem and the West Bank."

Read the Rest...

I can hear the Left in Europe and abroad now.."Oh Hamas doesn't really mean it, they are just speaking out of anger due to years of occupation and oppression." Oh Really? And I suppose Charles Manson really wanted to be a world class tap dancer if only his daddy would have given him the love he really wanted...Give me a break.

The conistent pushing of moral equivelancy between the Isreal and the Palestinian leaders by "head-in-the-sand know-nothings" is truly maddening. I challenge anyone to find any Isreali in an equivelant position of power that has said anything remotely similar to what Hamas just said above. Or as has been pointed out before on this site and others...where have the Isrealis expressed equivelant views as those expressed in the PLO charter calling for the destruction of Isreal?

I predict an utter lack of outrage amongst the left and most Euros regarding these statements. This lack of outrage that will occur is just one more example of the moral impairment that characterizes much of the left on this issue. It is a blatant paternalism towards Palestinians that in the end only hurts Isreal. They expect more from Isreal (as Isreal is actually a civilized nation), but how can they expect the Palestinians (who they don't expect much of) to react any better when faced with raw Isreali power? This double standard works in a twisted manner to draw support for the Palestinians at Isreal's expense...hmm...I wonder why?
