And they don’t mean “land for peace” or anything close to it.
Instead, they welcome people like Egyptian Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi to Gaza:
Leading Muslim cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi paid a high-profile visit to Gaza on Thursday, giving a boost to the Islamist group Hamas that runs the enclave, but also laying bare Palestinian rivalries….
Soon after arriving in the Gaza Strip, the 87-year-old Egyptian-born cleric called on Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims to work together to bring about the downfall of Israel.
“Our wish should be that we carry out Jihad to death,” said Qaradawi, who has gained a large following in the Muslim world thanks to regular appearances on Al Jazeera television.
“We should seek to liberate Palestine, all of Palestine, inch by inch,” he said, backing the position of Hamas, which refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist.
And they speak the truth on to Arab television and glorify the desire to destroy Israel, Senior PA official praises murderer and another official swears: “If we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning”
Two senior Palestinian Authority officials praised the use of violence against Israel last week.
Senior PA official Sultan Abu Al-Einein expressed his open support for the murderer who killed Evyatar Borovsky, an Israeli who was stabbed to death by Palestinian terrorist Salam Al-Zaghal while he was waiting for a ride.
Abu Al-Einein, who was until recently an advisor holding the rank of minister to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and who was subsequently appointed Head of the Palestinian Council for NGO Affairs by Abbas, honored the murderer:
“We salute the heroic fighter, the self-sacrificing Salam Al-Zaghal.”
Abu Al-Einein also praised the murderer and his killing with the words:
“He insisted on defending his honor, so he went against the settler and killed him. Blessings to the breast that nursed Salam Al-Zaghal.”
But it gets better:
Another senior PA official, Jibril Rajoub, also praised the use of violence against Israel. During an interview on a Lebanese TV channel, the host referred to “the negotiations game” with Israel, and Rajoub expressed the view that negotiations are held because the Palestinians lack military strength:
“I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning.”
