It should be noted that al-Zahar’s mission to annihilate the Jews comes with several preconditions. As he explained in 2006, “Before Israel dies, it must be humiliated and degraded. Allah willing, before they die, they will experience humiliation and degradation every day.”

Only a problem for Israel and the Jews? Not according to al-Zahar.  Achieving Allah’s directive in “Palestine” is only the beginning. In 2004 al-Zahar said:

We are part of Allah’s promise that Islam will enter Palestine and every home in the world, with a revelation of the power of Allah the Omnipotent, and a revelation of the inferiority of the infidels. Hamas is leading this plan in Gaza, the West Bank, and the 1948 territories, and the Muslim Brotherhood is leading it everywhere else. This is part of Allah’s predestination.

Al-Zahar’s Islamist vision was on display later that same year when he spoke at the funeral of the first female Hamas suicide bomber, promising, “She is not going to be the last because the march of resistance will continue until the Islamic flag is raised, not only over the minarets of Jerusalem, but over the whole universe.”

It makes sense, then, that Al-Zahar’s admiration for death and destruction is not confined to Palestinian suicide bombers. He also praises his Islamist brethren in Afghanistan, the American-killing Taliban:

The Taliban are 1,000 times more honorable than the American occupation and its collaborators…Everyone must stop blaming the Taliban for things that in fact characterize the people of the West, who seek to turn the international community into a swamp of corruption and destruction, and to spread abomination and disease in the name of absolute freedom.

Perhaps al-Zahar’s admiration for the Taliban arises from that terror group’s frequent use of suicide bombers, many of whom are women and children forced into the act. During the al-Aqsa Intifada from 2000-2004, Hamas and its allies launched 138 suicide attacks against Israelis, killing 319 Israeli soldiers and 745 civilians, and wounding 2,430 soldiers and 5,032 civilians. Sixty-nine of the suicide attacks were carried out by children under the age of 18.

One might be misled into thinking that al-Zahar’s recent call for Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah (Hamas’s rival), to abandon his unilateral UN statehood bid was an indication that his views are softening. But, in actuality, al-Zahar opposes the move because he does not want a Palestinian state side by side Israel. He is only interested in one Judenrein Palestinian state. As he once said, “I dream of hanging a huge map of the world on the wall at my Gaza home which does not show Israel on it. I hope that our dream to have our independent state on all historic Palestine.”

No amount of prisoner exchanges or concessions by the Israelis will allow that dream of al-Zahar’s to die. He’s made himself perfectly clear on the subject. If only the world would take his words seriously.

    My book, "Satan's Trinity: Hitler, Stalin & Muhammad," will be available within the month and one may pre-order at http://www.satanstrinity.wordpress.com/ For the first time in history "HSM" appear together on a book cover. The idea behind the book is to make headway against the ludicrous idea that Muhammad should be conjoined with any religious leader/founder. Once this comparison, driven by actual names, has been made then it must be attacked. Once the attack has been launched then the attackers will be forced to defend their attack. Since the attack is indefensible then the "religion" Muhammad (if he existed) founded will begin to be viewed as the scam it is. This book has been written under the principle of KISS. And nothing is simpler to understand than Hitler and Stalin…..and now, Muhammad. Thank you for your time…….C"H"Martel

      Go away. Go and pay for advertising. If ever I had any thoughts of purchasing your book, you have successfully squashed them with your incessant spamming of this site.

      GO AWAY!!!!

        . . . . well put.

      One can well understand the need for such a novel – good luck with it. However, Mo cannot be attached to anyone but an Arab emulating medevial Europe. Both had the same idea when they thought Israel was dead. Both were tested – both failed the test. Now they are hopping mad. Together, both conspired to commit the greatest Post-W.W.II crimes: the corruption of the Balfour, calling a 3-state as a 2-state and transfering the name Palestinian to those panting for another holocaust.

      AT LEAST THE NAZIS WERE HONEST ABOUT IT.

  • StephenD

    So the call for genocide elicits what from the UN? Ahhh, I see. It elicits more calls for Israel to make concessions. My only problem with this then becomes Israel’s willingness to do so.
    Israel MUST NOT give one more inch. Israel should TAKE BACK what truly and historically belongs to it. Make Jerusalem a Jewish Capital ~ The City of David!
    Rebuild the Temple right where it belongs. Should the entire world rise against you it would have to move heaven first. I am not Jewish but look forward to that day the Temple opens.

      Children! I'm inclined to invoke the parent's solution: kick both Jews and Muslims out of Palestine. If you can't learn to share, neither of you can have it!

      • StephenD

        I thank G_d it isn't your call. It is telling how you place yourself above as a "parent" as if you have exclusive wisdom. Have you ever read the mythological story of Narcissus? I don’t know who your Echo is but I can speculate on your Nemesis.

        • Herman Caintonette

          Israel should take back what is "truly and historically" theirs? They abandoned the land two millenia ago, and acquired the land via genocide, according to their own holy book's admission. One Hebophile even claimed that there was such a thing as "just genocide."

          Your only colorable claim to Palestine is the "title" of the thief … and it is to our eternal shame that we in the West facilitated it.

            So, how did the prayers go last friday? Did you imam pat you on your profoundly ignorant and dishonest head, and tell you that you ae a good boy//

          • Herman Caintonette

            No, toilet-boy (WC). As I see it, any God worthy of the name would not be so pathologically insecure as to demand our prayers, or punish us for our failure to worship the right god. You are the drooling religious nutter….

          • jmz

            problem with that is that there is no place on earth that does not owe its existance to murder. especially muslims. you want to equate what happened 2 millenia ago to whats happening now then you must also concede the land is still theres for muslims aquired their land the same way.

      • PhillipGaley

        . . . . which, you posture yourself as the bad mother whom king Solomon successfully dealt with, and showed us how, . . . you will post again—won't you?

      • inzion

        Serial 2-states in the same land = genocide. But that's the idea, stupid!

  • Herman Caintonette

    Sounds hauntingly like David ben-Gurion.

    • Western Canadian

      You sound hauntingly like a local imam….. like you he lies about hating jews, and pretends to respect the west.

  • Bert

    America itself was founded on theft of a continent, enslavement of millions of blacks and genocide of the Indians. But this is no barrier to hypocritical anti Jewish bigots from preaching lies and hatred against the only nation in the world that is on the land assigned by the Creator.

    • PhillipGaley

      Actually, the USA was not "founded on theft and enslavement" but was born of the age-old and honored activity which conquest is—conquest; old buddy, ya need some book-larnin', . . .

  • Herman Caintonette

    Bert: "the only nation in the world that is on the land assigned by the Creator."

    Based on what OBJECTIVE evidence?

  • Ghostwriter

    Well,I see the Jew haters out in full force today. And they agree with the psychopathic al-Zahar that Americans and Jews should be killed for no other reason than that they exist.

  • pyeatte

    There are no Jews in Palestine. They are in Israel. al-Zahar is such a dolt.

  • NotMyProphet

    Just FYI, your "al-Aqsa Intifada" link didn't work for me, I changed the last digit and it worked, I think this is the link you were trying to use…

    Forgot Jericho already?

    If you use the Biblical argument, the Palestinian Arabs stayed while the Israelites willfully abandoned the land, moving to Egypt. If you use the argument that genocidal acts must be ignored, the Palestinians still have the better claim, as the Israelites (by their own admission) did the same thing to them. There is no argument which can give the Israelites superior title.

  • Vivi Andersen

    Yes – there has not ever existed an Palestine-state !

    Read the history !

    PALARABS : STOP YOUR SCREAMING AND LYING !!

  • John Fonteine

    Here is your argument. The tribes that were conquered by the Jews were in no way related to the modern day Palestinians. Palestinians are a mix of descendants of the ancient Romans, Persians, Arabs etc.. as the people you are referring to, were either eradicated or assimilated into the Jewish society.
