Islamic Jihad top dog on Israel: “It is the time for the Islamic Ummah to confront this cancerous tumor and wipe it out from the region”
This is the usual propaganda that Iran’s official new agencies pump out by the pound, but it is worth noting yet again for the incurably politically correct that no land concession or “settlements” moratorium on the part of Israel will bring peace. This is because the jihadists who are set against Israel will never give up until Israel is utterly destroyed. All Israel can do is be stronger and smarter than they are (the latter isn’t hard), and hang tough.
“Islamic Jihad Urges Muslim Confrontation with Israeli Aggressions,” from Iran’s Fars News Agency, May 19:
TEHRAN (FNA)- Representative of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement to Tehran Nasser Abusharif strongly condemned the recent Israeli air raid on Syria, and called on all Islamic states to confront the Zionist regime’s aggressive moves to prevent similar events in future.
Speaking to FNA on Sunday, Abusharif said the recent Israeli airstrike on Syria was “a blatant violation of an independent state.”
“We in the Islamic Jihad Movement condemn the attack and, of course, this opposition should not be limited to criticism and condemnation in words. Rather, we want confrontation with this occupying enemy because we blame a major part of the regional problems on this occupying regime and the western plots which are hatched and exercised in support of this regime.”
“Arab and Islamic nations could counter this Zionist enemy through unity and solidarity and prevent it from repeating its aggressions against Muslim territories,” the Palestinian figure stated.
“It is the time for the Islamic Ummah (community) to confront this cancerous tumor and wipe it out from the region.”
Earlier this month, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus after heavy losses were inflicted on al-Qaeda-affiliated groups by the Syrian army. According to Syrian media reports, Israeli rockets struck the Jamraya research center.
The Israeli aggression was Tel Aviv’s second strike on Syria in three days and the third in the last five months.
The Jamraya facility was also targeted in an Israeli airstrike in January.
