"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."
Monday, April 03, 2006
[Media Source*] You can not get more radical than this in the Holy Land. What Arafat dared to speak privately to his own people, Hamas is declaring its intentions to the world.
(Israel Insider) In an interview with the Chinese news agency, Xinhua, al-Zahar spoke about his "dream of hanging a huge map of the world on the wall at my Gaza home which does not show Israel on it."
"I hope that our dream of having an independent state on the entire territory of historical Palestine will be realized one day." This dream, he added, "will become real one day. I'm certain of this because there is no place for the state of Israel on this land."
Al-Zahar however does hint at the possibility of Christians and Jews living with Palestine--although it is pretty much doubtful how much freedom they would have underneath a democratic theocratic regime.
(Israel Insider) Al-Zahar declared that Hamas will not disarm its military wing, adding that the Hamas government will continue to support armed organizations opposing the "Israeli occupation." "Why should we disarm the militants while the Palestinian territories are still occupied? The people have to defend themselves," he said.
Al-Zahar, who is the overall leader of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, also called upon the international community to give the Hamas cabinet a chance to show it was "clean and transparent."
With words like these being uttered, a war is pretty much expected between Israel and Palestine--especially if Iran attacks Israel.
