Khaled Abu Toameh:
The Arabs are allowed to attack the Gaza strip to remove Hamas from power, while Israel is not even allowed to launch airstrikes at those who are firing rockets at its cities.
The commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable,” according to an Israel Radio report Tuesday.
Militia chief Mohammad Reza Naqdi also threatened Saudi Arabia, saying that the offensive it is leading in Yemen “will have a fate like the fate of Saddam Hussein.”– Click here to read more »

Obama Cites Ayatollah’s Fatwa on Road to Nuclear War
He knows its BS. But he wants you to believe it. He thinks you are that dumb.
As Iran continues edging closer to developing nuclear weapons—a major threat to the entire Mideast region, especially longstanding U.S. ally Israel—U.S. President Obama has come to the aid of the Islamic Republic, by citing an Islamic fatwa no less. In a video recording posted on the White House’s website, Obama said, “Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon.” — (Raymond Ibrahim)
Israel must be destroyed in the name of Islam:
From Palestinian Media Watch:
The Mufti of the Palestinian Authority Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, appointed in 2006 by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to the position of most senior religious leader in the PA, told a conference of “Muslim scholars and delegations from over 46 countries” that Israel must be destroyed in the name of Islam:
This statement – that according to Islamic law “Palestine is waqf… and must not be relinquished,” but should be “liberated” – imposes prohibitions and obligations on all Muslims. First, according to the PA religious leader, all Muslims are prohibited from recognizing Israel’s existence or signing a genuine and permanent peace treaty with Israel that “relinquishes any part” of “Palestine,” meaning all of Israel. Second, he told the world’s Muslim delegations that they and all Muslims have a religious obligation to “liberate Palestine” – meaning to destroy Israel.
Palestinian Media Watch recently reported that a similar statement was made by Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious and Islamic AffairsMahmoud Al-Habbash, the second most important religious leader in the PA:
The PA is increasingly adopting Hamas’ ideology prohibiting recognition of Israel and demanding its destruction, not only in the name of Palestinian nationalism, but in the name of Islam. The language used by both the Mufti and Abbas’ advisor is almost identical to the language in Hamas’ charter:
The latest PCPSR poll of Palestinian Arabs buried these little nuggets in its findings, without giving a further breakdown:
. When asked about the long term aspiration of the PA and the PLO, 63% said that it is to recover all or parts of the land occupied in 1967 while 28% said it was to conquer the state of Israel or conquer the state of Israel and kill most of the Jews.
– A majority of 74% favors Hamas way of resisting occupation… Furthermore, 56% favor the transfer of Hamas’ armed approach to the West Bank.
So what’s the difference between Hamas and Fatah again?
