FATEH's constitution, Article 19:
“Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.”
And the first sentence in Fatah's constitution declares that it is part of the wider arab world, in line with the earlier declaration by the first Palestine arab National Congress in 1920 that demanded Palestine be annexed by a Greater Syria.
Article (1) Palestine is part of the Arab World, and the Palestinian people are part of the Arab Nation, and their struggle is part of its struggle.
Why do I say the palestinians never gave up on destroying Israel? Because palestinians and their leaders never cease to make known in one way or another, either by word or by terrorist deed, their wish to destroy Israel and kill its jewish inhabitants. President Abbas can't espouse his sympathies for this anihilationist dream, for another holocaust, so he and his minions honour those who have killed jews in the past. Abbas has very recently visited some notorious murderers, such as Samir Kuntar who bashed a little girl's head on a rock after killing her father in front of the doomed toddler. Kuntar got a hug and a private interview. Amna Muna also received a private interview and words of praise from Abbas. She lured a 16year old boy to a romantic liaison, to his death. And lets not forget the ungrateful Wafa al-Bis who after israeli burns surgeons saved her life, went back as a suicide bomber to try and kill those very same doctors! The reporter seems unaware of Bis's earlier hospitalisation but what is even more chilling is the mother's attitude to her daughter killing herself and doctors innocent of anything other than having successfully saved the life of her daughter:
"Bis’s mother Salma said she had no idea of her daughter’s mission — but added that she felt she had no choice but to encourage her in her chosen course of life. “This is Jihad, it is an honourable thing and I am proud of her,” she said."
In the latest 47th anniversary of the founding of Fatah, responsible for thousands of dead and injured israelis, including the Munich massacre, of which pal the organiser called for the murder of jews, and was followed by the Mufti, the top religious official for muslims. Rather than condemn the mufti, this this genocidal muslim spiritual leader for millions of palestinians, the Palestinian Authority broadcast his call to kill jews on its television channel.
For some reason this video has been removed by Youtube for supposedly having 'violated' its t's & c's. Most likely this video was embarassing for Israel's enemies. Palestinian leaders like to show a moderate face to an english speaking audience, expressing their real intentions only in the arabic language. Journalists almost never seek to know what is really being said in arabic. Even when it is handed to them on a plate they will not publish genocidal statements from arab leaders.
Palestinian Media Watch have put the video of the genocidal mufti on their site. No doubt apologists for palestinians and islamists will come out with the usual, "what they really meant was....." Israeli leaders such as the seemingly ever gullible Shimon Peres and defence minister Barak should watch this clip before they next sit down to talk peace with terrorists from the Palestinian Authority.
In a surprising departure from the norm an islamic scholar Adnan Oktar has condemned the mufti's genocidal comments. Don't hold your breath for a palestinian leader to do the same.
Palestinian genocidal comments are not hard to find even if now and again you tube deletes some. In this interview broadcast on PA TV a woman looks back nostalgically on the massacre of the jews of Hebron in 1929.
Past massacres of jews that are even now joyously celebrated as palestinians fantasise about what they would like to do to jews in the present, as the Mufti and others tell their fellow arabs living in Judea and Samaria all too frequently.
Israel allowed thousands of PLO terrorists to be allowed into the country under the Oslo accords and then allowed them to be trained by US soliders and equipped with arms. In 2002 Israel paid for this with over a thousand dead and many thousands injured in shooting attacks and suicide bombings.
Whilst on this subject, just today the second terrorist guilty of the horrific slaughter of five members of the Fogel family (two adults and three children killed in their beds with knives) were sentenced today to life terms in prison. Israel is humane and does not execute prisoners guilty of even the most horrific crimes. But where is the deterrence if such terrorists know they might be free in a few years in exchange for an israeli soldier captured or kidnapped? It's with a heavy heart that I say this, but Israel must seriously think about bringing back the death penalty for the most serious crimes that have taken lives. These murderers of children have expressed no remorse. They never do, and they are heroes in their society. Let them become martyrs never able to repeat their acts. Let them have time to contemplate their actions before they mount the scaffold. Some who follow them would by this surely be given pause for thought before planting bombs on buses.
Whilst this terrorist was being sentenced today, two palestinians attempted to gain entry to the court in order to shoot it up and explode bombs, for the second time this week
The lesson from all this hatred and terror is that Israel must never trust palestinians again. Israel must never give territory away again. To give away strategic territory invites attack, and we know that Israel's enemies will attack any time they feel they have the upper hand or even just the opportunity.
