Will the people of Gaza continue to support Hamas despite the terrible consequences?
The Palestinians of Gaza are saying we are suffering because of the crimes of Israel. Even with the carnage and their homes reduced to rubble, they say, “Mr. Khaled Meshaal, we don’t want to emerge from this war without breaking the siege. We were dying slowly. Now we are dying instantly because of the F-16s and all the Israeli and American technology.” The Palestinian people have had enough. They do not make distinctions between slow death and instant death. They say, “Our families are targeted in their homes. However, we want to resist, to insist on lifting the siege.”
How does the killing stop? What do you want?
Human beings have to defend themselves. If we are starved, if we are besieged, we have to defend ourselves. When [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu stops every effort to reach peace, the rest of the world ought to expect an explosion in the West Bank and Gaza. What do I believe Hamas needs or wants? Peace. But we want peace without occupation, without settlements, without Judaization, without the siege. We want to live on par with every single nation. We need to live in Palestine.
“You think the key is trust. We actually are enemies. They are the occupiers. The solution doesn’t start with trust. … How could I trust my enemy?”
Will you pledge not to eradicate Israel? Do you want to live in coexistence with Israel?
I do not coexist with occupation and with settlements. Do you think that Palestinians who suffer from occupation and settlements can eradicate Israel? No, this is beguiling, misleading propaganda. … We in Hamas believe in moderation of Islam. We are not fanatics. We do not fight the Jews because they are Jews per se. We fight the occupiers. I’m ready to coexist with the Jews, with the Christians, with the Arabs, with the non-Arabs. I do coexist with other religions. … When we have a Palestinian state, then the Palestinian people can have their say. There are disproportionate standards, but we have the upper hand. Every single occupation ends, and the people are victorious.
How do you create trust between Israelis and Palestinians?
You think the key is trust. We actually are enemies. They are the occupiers. The solution doesn’t start with trust. The international community’s full mission is to say to the Israeli occupation, “Stop. Enough is enough.” They ought to compel Israel to withdraw. How could I trust my enemy? We had a number of negotiations. The negotiations failed.
Some suggest, to preserve Israel’s security, the sovereignty of a Palestinian state must be restricted.
Why does the world understand Israeli security issues and not take heed of Palestinian security issues? In order to have a Palestinian state, why ought that state be demilitarized? Who accepts a state without arms? It will be subject to the aggression of others. I cannot accept any tutelage of any other entity. If you say, “Come, you are Palestinian. We can give you a piece here and a piece there in piecemeal fashion”—no. No.
Do you need the approval of the military wing of Hamas to commit to any agreement?
We are not two heads or two bodies. We are one single movement. When the political leadership commits to something, then the military wing will commit itself, too. If the leaders take a decision, then every single person, whether militant or civilian, they will follow.
Why are you in Qatar and not Gaza?
This is a very reasonable question. You can ask not only Khaled Meshaal, you can ask the 6 million people in the diaspora. Why are they not in the West Bank? Why are they not in Gaza? Because Israel expelled the Palestinians in 1948 and 1967. I’m from the West Bank. Since 1967, I was expelled. I used to live in Jordan, in Kuwait, when I used to be a student. Then I moved to Syria and now Qatar. You have hundreds and thousands of Palestinians in America. They long to go back to Palestine. Although they are American citizens, Palestinians long for their home country. That’s why we insist on the return of the refugees, for me and for others to return. My natural existence is there, but I’m compelled to be here.

Tunisia, Egypt and now Libya!
Dictators are toppled one by one; the most criminal of whom faced the ultimate humiliation then death!
The people have spoken. The “western powers” were quick to congratulate and urge the same people they helped oppress through their puppets, to be mindful of democracy and “positive” change.
What they really mean is that they wish for a democracy that fits the western ideologies… a sort of dictatorship that we would bless and label as a “democracy.”
What scares the West is that the Arab people want their religious values to influence their communities, eliminate usury and corruption (Sharia “Law”), build an Islamic Empire as one existed in the past during which prosperity and science flourished, poverty eliminated and the Arab/ Muslim world stood united (also Sharia “Law”).
This is when the despicable state of terrorists and pigs will vanish… and the Middle East will be Holy again.
So let the spark continue and burn the tyrants and dictators of the region (who also use what they call democracy to hide their crimes against humanity).
Today we celebrate the demise of Zine El Abidine of Tunisia, Mubarak of Egypt and Gaddafi of Libya.
Tomorrow we shall celebrate the demise of Netanyahu, Abdallah, Assad, Saleh and Al Malki
And then we shall have peace and prosperity.

Palestinian statehood bid ‘papers ready’
The Palestinians will not be deterred from seeking UN membership, senior officials say in response to a report that the the US is trying to head off their bid.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that the US has launched an attempt to persuade the Palestinians not to seek statehood at the annual UN General Assembly meeting beginning on September 20.
“When it comes to going to the United Nations, I think the train has left the station,” Muhammad Shtayyeh, a member of Fatah’s central committee who is overseeing the UN bid, said on Sunday.
“We’re already on the way to New York. We are very ready for this. All our papers are ready.”
The New York Times, citing US officials and foreign diplomats, said the US has tried to restart peace talks with the Israelis in a bid to convince Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president and leader of Fatah, to drop the bid.
The Obama administration has made it clear to Abbas that it will veto any request to the UN Security Council to make a Palestinian state a new member outright, the newspaper said.
But the US does not have enough support to block a vote to elevate the status of the Palestinians’ nonvoting observer “entity” to that of a nonvoting observer state, according to the newspaper report.
‘No chance for talks’
Palestinians expect “more than 150” of the 192 UN member countries to endorse full Palestinian membership.
But this would fall short of the number needed to ratify an application, which must be approved by the Security Council.
If approved by two-thirds of the General Assembly, it would allow the Palestinians for instance to gain full membership of UN agencies such as WHO, UNESCO or UNICEF.
The US argues that the Palestinians will only achieve meaningful statehood through a revival of direct peace talks with Israel.
Comment: The US never argued that “peace talks” would resolve the Sudan division and the south seeking independence. Nor did the U.S. argue that “peace talks” would ensure that Saddam Hussein and the Kuwaitis would be able to resolve their differences. So what is it about the Palestinians? Are they the Children of a Lesser God? Israel’s negotiations tactics are clear: build more settlements and negotiate grabbing more Palestinian lands!
The New York Times said the US was labouring to find language that would be sufficient to lure the Palestinians away from their bid, bring Israel to the negotiating table and be acceptable to the other members of the peacemaking Quartet – the EU, UN and Russia.
But Shtayyeh, the Fatah official, said the Palestinians had made every effort to negotiate.
“The only thing Israel wants to talk about is security, security and security,” he said. “There isn’t really any chance for negotiations with this current Israeli government.
He said that until now, the Palestinians had not received any serious offer from the international community.
“All these offers are to stop us from going to New York. They are not really about genuine peace,” he said.
In a related development, EU foreign ministers meeting in Poland have urged both Israel and the Palestinians to return to direct peace talks while offering to take a lead role in hammering out a solution acceptable to all sides.
Alain Juppe, the French foreign minister, said on Sunday the Palestinian proposal, to be formally detailed in the coming days by Abbas, could prove a failure for Israel, the Palestinians and the US.
Should the Palestinians receive widespread backing “Israel would be isolated”, the Palestinians “would face a poor tomorrow” after losing vital funding, and the US too will “face isolation”, he said.
Guido Westerwelle, the German foreign minister, said separately that it was key to “try to influence different parties to act constructively”. Germany opposes the Palestinian initiative.
Europe stands divided on the question, with the Czech Republic, Italy and the Netherlands also opposed but Spain pledging to vote in favour.
Despite the fast-approaching deadline, Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign policy chief, insisted that a return to the talks table remained a possibility.
“We believe that we need to have a negotiated settlement as quickly as possible and that anything that can help that process is good,” she said.

The despicable UN report that Israel did not violate international law by imposing the illegal siege of Gaza…
Or the report that Israel simply used “excessive force” in its attack on the Mavi Marmara (Flotilla) and executing at least 9 civilians in cold blodd…
Or the UN’s call for freedom of South Sudan yet remains silent on Palestinians quest for freedom and independence…
These and more – prove that the United Nations is simply a puppet in the hands of Super Powers to be manipulated at will! Those seeking freedom will only get their freedom if the Superpowers “approve” their application!!!
If a “terrorist” supporting government like Sudan is in question, we go in full force to demand and support the liberation of the South – seeking its freedom and Independence. People like Clooney and other despicable opportunists run to “inform” the world of the severity of the Southern Sudanese…
Yet as Israel continues its Apartheid practice, ethnic cleansing policies, building more illegal settlements on Palestinian lands, torturing Palestinian prisoners of all ages, Clooney and the U.N. choose silence!
And the terrorist state of Israel and its actions against Palestinians, more horrific than the Holocaust itself, are simply “regrettable” actions…or excusable or whatever terminology that spins the ugly truth into something less negative-sounding!
And when Palestinians seek a vote to support their independence from the terrorist regime of the Israeli NaZionists, we – the USA – threaten such a freedom-seeking action with Veto, halting all aid to Palestinians (of which they see none – it goes into the pockets of the puppets played by the US government – as was the case in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and many more) and publicly demanding that such a request by Palestinian is hasty, illogical and produces mistrust with the Israelis…
In other words, Palestinians must be disbanded more and reduced to tribes like the Indian “nations” that remain in the U.S.
So when will the UN ever find Israel guilty of any crime?
When pigs fly!
Or when the superpowers become real democracies seeking justice for all…
Otherwise, the oppressed will continue to fight back for their freedom. And sooner or later, the oppressed and occupied win. History has just slapped the Universe with such evidence: Libya, Tunisia and Egypt have been liberated!
Kudos to Turkey and its expulsion of the Israeli
diplomats terrorists from Turkey!
The demise of Israel is coming soon… the previews are almost over!!!

As abhorrent the Norway massacre is, it must be quite annoying and “deflating” to the Muslim bashing community of degenerates who wished that the terror act would have been carried out by Muslims rather than one of their “own.” It seems that Christians are terrorists too! We’ve seen that in the massacres and crimes committed in the U.S.A – the likes of Timothy McVeigh, Andrew Joseph Stack III, Jared Loughner just to name a few! Yet, in the U.S., the media would not refer to these degenerates as “terrorists.”
One comment that struck me on a news site, stated:
I am shocked this had nothing to do with muslims. Why were muslims groups claiming they were responsible for the attacks then?
Who was the “Muslim Group” that claimed credit? Well, someone please share this piece of “enlightening” information. I bet that the claim came from some sadist media reporter or agency who quickly assumed that it had to be “Muslims” who committed the crime, and by being the “first” to report this, their fame and incredible “sources” would become the talk-of-the-town. Regardless, if such a Muslim group is somehow linked to the terror attack, I would also bet that they will bear a new name – and one which contains the word “Jihad” in it – and we’ll be led to believe such “reports” because, like cattle, we believe whatever garbage we’re being fed.
The sad truth is atrocities like this are a daily occurrence in Palestine. Israelis jail, massacre, kill and ethnic-cleanse Palestinians daily. They even publicly discriminate against non-white Jews in Israel!
Israel is most probably the only country in the world which imprisons women and children of “suspected” so-called terrorists, indefinitely. The world always chooses silence over Israeli terrorism (Deir Yasin, Qana, Hebron, Jenin, Gaza, Jerusalem, International Flotilla, etc.) and their use of prohibited weaponry (cluster and phosphorus bombs against civilians) so as not to upset “Jews” or be referred to as “anti-Semite!”
