It is almost on the verge of the ridicule, to observe, how the interweaving of suicidal fantasy and reality, governing Mahmoud al-Zahar and Ismail Haniyeh from their hideout in Gaza, and Khaled Mashaal hidden in the womb of his Damascian sponsor, obscure their judgement as leaders responsible for the Palestinian people.
Look how together, they forge, with the underground aid of the fundamentalist Iran, a sadomasochist political machinery of dead and shahidism for the Gaza civil population, by instigating the Hamas Jihadist’s fanatic aggression on Israel by shooting thousands of rockets on almost one million of Israelis, leading to operation Cast Lead, the legitimate act of Israeli self defence against Iran and his proxy the Hamas.
So, here are a few words and pictures, illustrating this sort of schizophreny, said by the ‘brave’ Mahmoud al-Zahar and the’brave’ Khaled Mashaal, describing their inevitable ” … March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam” (by Barbara Tuchman)., and by paraphrasing the books title, as “The March of Folly: From Troy to Gaza”..
Look at Hamas’s Mahmoud al-Zahar in his gloomy bunker in Gaza..perhaps situated in the underground of Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital, shielding himself with the live bodies of the upper floor patients..,
…”in a rare appearance on Al-Aqsa TV, in a picture of low technical quality. Reading a prepared statement, he claimed that the “rockets of the ‘resistance’ we manufacture defeated the theory of Israel security” (Al-Aqsa TV, January 5, 2009 ),” see here,… wich are words of pure fantasy, if taking into consideration the latest news: “Report: Hamas agrees to ceasefire in Gaza” 1.14.09, 17:47 see here.
Meanwhile Hamas Damascus leader Khaled Mashaal, well protected in the Syrian womb, is eager to win (??) the Cast Lead war until the dead of the last Gaza strip resident. Indeed .. a noble goal..
I quote,..”We will not accept a permanent truce, because it will take the right of resistance from the Palestinian people. The resistance is against occupation and military campaigns and therefore as long as occupation exists, resistance will too…
We will also not accept the interference of international forces because international forces will come only to protect Israel’s security and any international force imposed will be considered as occupiers, and so on.”..Barbaric shahidist political fantasy at his best, lacking any responsibility for his Palestinian people by not preparing him for an inevitable war.. For more see here.
On the other hand look at this statement by Abdul Rahman, adviser to the Palestinian president and official spokesman of the Fatah movement, I quote..”“Mash’al was speaking as if the Hamas tanks are surrounding Tel Aviv,” Abd Ar-Rahman said. He accused the Damascus head of Hamas of being out of touch, saying his response was as if ‘he had never been there [Gaza]…so he can’t recognize the death of so many and the destruction of buildings and homes.’
Abd Ar-Rahman said Mash’al’s refusal to negotiate will make the situation in Gaza worse, and make the idea of a Palestinian state seem ‘farfetched…”I wish there were leaders in Hamas to think logically, with a clear and responsible vision,’ unlike Mash’al, Abd Ar-Rahman said.” see here. This is indeed real politic.
And yesterday, ( 21:15 12/01/2009), here are the ‘brave’ words of Ismail Haniyeh Hamas leader, not quite in accordance with those from Damascus leader Khaled Mashaal, I quote “We have confidence in Allah because He’s on our side. We are nearing victory over the Zionist war machine. After 17 days of fighting, I can say that the Gazaand Strip faith will prevail. With Allah’s help, the Palestinian people will prevail over the infidels.” see here, ..This is Islamic black fantasy going back into time, to resuscitate the holy war against the infidel Christians crusaders…and in our case against the Israelis. He too, miscalculating the Israeli response, did nothing to protect his own fellow people against the consequences of his suicidal fantasies.
Qlick on picture to play
But , from his Gaza hideout, he also says …”Islamist group will back any initiative that will result in ‘enemy’s withdrawal’, but adds Palestinians will ‘continue to fight occupying forces until victory achieved with Allah’s help’ “…see here, 01.12.09, 21:05. A mix of fantasy and reality wich is better than the Hamas Damascus empty shahidist directives. Anyway you look tired Mr. Haniyeh, I understand that…
And more. Please, read what Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak says to the Hamas leaders …”According to the sources, Cairo warned Hamas that should it refuse to accept the proposal the IDF would continue to expand its operation in Gaza, which in effect would mean an end to Hamas’ rule over the coastal enclave it took over in June 2007.”….see here ,( 01.13.09) or in plain English “Sign truce or lose Gaza”. This is the real bare reality.
So where are we?
I quote the NYT (January 14, 2009) .. “The short-term cease-fire would, if successful, be followed by a negotiated yearlong truce, something that Egypt says Hamas favors if it includes an opening of commercial traffic into Gaza. But splits in Hamas exist between its leaders based in Syria and those in Gaza. The Gazans are more open to a weeklong break, while the leaders in Syria want something from Israel in return for holding fire.” see here.
Well, nothing new between Hamas Gaza and Hamas Damascus, to the detriment of the Gazaan people.
