Al-Zahhar must be some kind of Islamophobe. Everyone knows that only greasy Islamophobes think that there is any clash of civilizations between the West and Islam, or that the Arab Spring is ushering in an Islamic ascendancy in North Africa and the Middle East. “Hamas Leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: Western Civilization ‘Will Not Be Able to Withstand the Great and Glorious Islam,'” from MEMRI, October 28:
Following are excerpts from a public address delivered by Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, which aired on Al-Quds TV on October 28, 2011:
[…] Today, we emphasize that our plan is not confined to the liberation of Palestine. The Islamic nation in its entirety will bring a smile to the faces of all the people in the world, and will wipe the tears from the eyes of all human beings. Our plan is the cure for all the maladies of this Western civilization, which knows only to contain or kill, to control or destroy, to clash with people or to contain them.
This civilization will not be able to withstand the great and glorious Islam, with its great humane platform.
The Arab nation has begun to reap the fruits of the hot Arab spring. Yesterday, the Islamists won in Tunisia, tomorrow, they will win in Egypt, and then in Libya, until Islam, which rules in accordance with the Koran, will prevail throughout the land.
