Israel - ME Politics, conflicts & Conspiracies
|Ant-IsraelAksa Martyrs Brigades (Fatah) leaflet - distributed
today in Gaza: "We affirm our support and backing for the positions of the
Iranian president toward the Zionist state which, by God's will, will cease
to exist. Recognizing Israel's right to exist means underestimating the
Palestinian people, who are making daily sacrifices to liberate Palestine
and Jerusalem." gamla.org.il Volume 6 Issue 50. Nov 7, 2005
Non-people"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.
"For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan." (PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977, interview with the Dutch newspaper Trau.)
Arab activist Musa Alami is quoted by Joan Peters [From Time Immemorial, p. 13] as writing in October 1949, "The people are in great need of a 'myth' to fill their consciousness and imagination," and adding that indoctrinating this nationalistic myth would create "identity" and "self-respect."
Almost 30 years later, PLO Military Department head Zuheir Muhsin said, "Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel."

National Security Council and general in the IDF reserves said Israel would
be stronger without Gaza and without Shechem. Withdrawing from
those places strengthens Israels national essence, eliminates
ruling another nation, and provides an opening for co-existence. Israel

Yasser Arafat's disappearance from the scene. Like the Thane of Cawdor in Shakespeare's Macbeth, "Nothing in his life became him like the leaving it." Arafat never grew beyond the man who appeared at the United Nations decades ago with both an olive branch and a gun.

Father of terrorU.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Florida), Chairperson of the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and Central Asia, told Foxnews today that Yasser Arafat is in total charge of the terrorist infrastructure in the Palestinian Authority:
"If he wanted to, he could dismantle the entire terrorist infrastructure today or this very hour. He has already fired one prime minister, and is about to fire another, and is in charge of everything that goes on there. So for him to say that he condemns today's attack is just ridiculous."

Violence (Option for Arabs)Leading Fatah officials believe that despite, or because of, Ariel Sharon's plan to quit Gaza, the terrorist war on Israel - unifying Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah - must continue. In answer to Al-Jazeera's question whether Sharon's declaration can be seen as a "victory for the intifada," Abu Rudeina replied: "The intifada is winning, either with these declarations or without them. The intifada is the only way that might lead to peace." Arutz Sheva News Service <http://www.IsraelNationalNews.com> Feb. 4, 2004

Death cultSuicide bombings:- Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa) agrees. "If we don't stop the suicide bombings in Israel, they may become an international terrorist way of life. They may become a plague. And they could happen anywhere if they gain currency and if they are permitted to go unchecked." Specter, a strong supporter of Israel, says that explains why he understands Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's policies. "When Sharon moves in - in self defense - to rout out these terrorists and to stop the suicide bombers, who can say he's wrong?" (by Wolf Blitzer, CNN Wolf Blitzer Reports)
Understanding the Death Worship of the Palestinian Suicide Bomber -- It's Aspiration, not Desperation!
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook http://www.pmw.org.il
"I always wanted to be the first woman who sacrifices her life for Allah. My joy will be complete when my body parts fly in all directions."
Israelis and herself two weeks ago in Gaza. What
is surprising about this horrific statement is that she put a positive
value on her dismemberment and death, distinct from her goal to kill
others. She was driven by her aspiration to achieve what the Palestinians
call "shahada," death for Allah. She had two distinct goals: To kill
and to be killed. These independent objectives, both positive in her
mind, were goals greater than her obligations and emotional ties to
her two children. This aspiration to die, which contradicts the basic
human instinct for survival, is at the core of the suicide terrorism
fervor. Only when this death worship component is recognized as a basic
tenet of Palestinian belief will it be possible to understand the challenges
Israel and the world face from suicide terror.
