What’s that? Hamas isn’t a right-wing Christian group? It’s a Muslim group? Oh, well, then, they are reacting to illegal occupation and oppression. Give them a state! What’s that? They celebrate the murder of innocents on buses and in restaurants? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe? “Hamas leader urges more violence,” from UPI, :
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.
Ynet, the online site of Tel Aviv daily Yediot Aharonot, said Hamas has warned that the temporary calm is falling apart, and the Islamic Jihad and Fatah’s al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades have echoed the statement. Hamas and the Islamic Jihad have been involved in recent attacks on Israel, and the al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades reportedly dispatched the female suicide bomber who was caught, ostensibly on her way to an Israeli hospital for treatment.
