Folks, in spite of the rhetoric that comes out of the Parkinson-diseased lips of the coward Arafat, who himself was born in Cairo, you must remember that Gaza is mentioned in the Torah and is never mentioned once in the Koran. Jerusalem is mentioned in the Torah more than 600 times and is never mentioned once in the Koran. Mohammed, the inventor of the religion, Islam, was born more than 1500 years after Jesus. Even though you will read below about how the fake palestinians dramatically raised placards with the names of Arab villages that existed inside Israel before 1948, please remember that those same villages were originally Jewish villages before Muslim barbarians destroyed them, occupied them, and fooled the world with their deceitful “religion of peace” mantra:
Invoking a phrase from the Koran, palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat on Saturday called on palestinians to “terrorize” their enemy.
In a televised speech on the 56th anniversary of the “nakba” (the establishment of Israel), Arafat quoted a phrase from the Koran that tells Muslims to “find what strength you have to terrorize your enemy and the enemy of God.”
The phrase in the Koran refers to Muslims’ wars against pagans. Arafat, however, also signaled that he was ready for peace when he referred to another phrase reading: “If they want peace, then let’s have it.”
Addressing the Israeli people, Arafat said: “I tell the Israeli people that our hand is extended to making the peace of the brave on this land.”
Arafat said that no one in the entire world has the right to make concessions on the right of palestinian refugees to return to their homeland. He also said that the palestinians would not accept any plan to resettle the refugees elsewhere.
He said in his speech that the Israeli government could not exonerate itself from its moral, political and international responsibility for the tragedy that befell the palestinian refugees.
“The right of the palestinian refugees to return to their homes is a sacred and inalienable right that is internationally protected and endorsed,” he said. “This right is heroically defended by the palestinian people in the face of the Israeli occupation, colonization and against the Apartheid Wall of annexation and expansion and in defense of our Christian and Islamic sanctuaries.”
Arafat concluded that the Israeli occupation of the palestinian land is doomed to failure and accused Israel of waging a war of genocide against the palestinians. He said the palestinian struggle would continue until the liberation of Jerusalem.
As Arafat was speaking, thousands of palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip took to the streets to mark “Nakba Day” by observing a two-minute silence and staging rallies and demonstrations. Senior pA officials and ministers were among the crowds.
During the rallies, palestinian refugees raised placards with the names of more than 450 Arab villages that used to exist inside Israel before 1948. Many waved palestinian flags and carried large keys that have become a symbol of the right to return.
In Ramallah, thousands gathered in the city center, waving flags and chanting, “No peace, No stability without the right of return.” Children held up placards bearing the names of Arab villages from which their families originated.
Sakher Habash, a senior Fatah official and close aide to Arafat, told the demonstrators that there would never be peace without the establishment of a palestinian state and the return of the refugees to their original homes.
In Nablus, some 5,000 demonstrators burned a cardboard model of an IDF tank, along with life-sized effigies of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, US President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. “We say ‘no’ to all plans that deny the right of return,” the demonstrators shouted.
Similar demonstrations were held in Kalkilya, Tulkarem, Jenin, Hebron and Bethlehem.
In Gaza City, at least 10,000 demonstrators gathered outside the palestinian Legislative Council offices, carrying pictures of Arafat and keys to what used to be their homes. “The right of return is holy, we will return to our homeland,” they chanted. Arafat’s top aide, Tayeb Abdel Rahim, was at the head of the procession.
Ma fish falastin.
