PLO EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEMBER HANAN ASHRAWI: MEMRI IS THE MOST TOXIC ORGANIZATION

PLO Executive Committee Member Hanan Ashrawi: MEMRI Is the Most Toxic Organization

Speaking at an event organized by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian legislator and a member of the PLO Executive Committee, labeled MEMRI “the most toxic organization.” Ashrawi accused MEMRI, with its “tremendous funds” and “access to Congress” and “decision-makers,” of distorting the Palestinian message. The lecture, titled “Palestinian Perspective on the Peace Process,” was posted on the YouTube channel of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs on March 27.

Hanan Ashrawi: “Then there are toxic organizations, as you know, and they have been very effective in distorting the Palestinian message and reality – like MEMRI. You know? M-E-M-R-I? You should be aware of this. This is the most toxic organization. It is run by Yigal Carmon, who used to be the advisor to the military governor. Then he became an advisor to (Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak) Shamir on terrorism, and so on. He used to interrogate me once in a while. But now he has this organization with tremendous funds. He monitors everything, and then he has access to Congress, particularly, but (also) to many decision-makers, and he distorts Palestinian utterances and anything that is published. We can talk about this later.”

HAMAS OFFICIAL AHMAD BAHR: ON WOMEN’S DAY, WE SALUTE JIHAD-FIGHTING PALESTINIAN WOMEN LIKE (SUICIDE BOMBER) RIM AL-RIYASHI

Transcript:

Hamas official Ahmad Bahr, deputy chair of the Palestinian Legislative Committee, said that while Europe celebrates the woman on International Women’s Day, its men sell their wives “like merchandise.” He went on to say: “We salute the Jihad-fighting Palestinian woman, who tends to the martyr and tends to her husband, and perhaps will become a martyr herself,” recalling Rim Al-Riyashi, who carried out a suicide attack against Israelis in 2004. Bahr’s address was broadcast on Al-Aqsa TV on March 9.

Ahmad Bahr: “The Palestinian woman is held in esteem. She is a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a grandmother. The Palestinian woman is held in esteem in Islam – in our religion, our moral values, and our faith. Every year, on March 8, the world celebrates International Woman’s Day, a holiday invented by Europe. Let me say, in a nutshell, that Europe celebrates the woman, but at the same time, it kills women. It celebrates the woman, but as you know, the (European) man sells his wife in front of the whole world, as if she is merchandise to be bought and sold. In the West, where they are celebrating the woman today, they want to present women naked in halls and stores, in order to attract customers. In Islam, in contrast, the woman is respected. As the Prophet Muhammad said, women are the sisters of men. Therefore, on Women’s Day, we salute the Jihad-fighting Palestinian woman, who tends to the martyr and tends to her husband, and perhaps will become a martyr for the sake of Allah herself, like the Jihad-fighting sister (suicide bomber) Rim al-Riyashi, who sacrificed herself for the sake of Palestine. The woman, who is being honored today, serves, makes sacrifices, and maintains her ribat for the sake of Allah.”

Lebanese Journalist Ghassan Jawad: Jews Feed Enemies with Blood Matzoh on Passover

Lebanese journalist Ghassan Jawad said that during Passover, “the extremist Jews feed their enemies with blood matzoh.” In an interview with Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV, Jawad, the editor-in-chief of beirutpress.net, said that this practice reflects Israeli mentality and the mentality of the Talmud. The interview aired on March 25.

Hamas Official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: The Quran Tells Us to Drive the Jews Out of Palestine in Its Entirety
Hamas Official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: The Quran Tells Us to Drive the Jews Out of Palestine in Its Entirety

Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, one of Hamas’s leaders in Gaza, said that “removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle” appearing in the Quran, and said: “Our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less.” Speaking on Al-Aqsa TV on March 8, Al-Zahhar advised Hamas and the Islamic Jihad never to mention the 1967 borders, as “this becomes like part of a joint plan.”

 

Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: “Allah says (in the Quran): ‘And drive them out from wherever they have driven you out.’ How do the linguists interpret the word ‘from’? The Quran talks about driving you out ‘from where they have driven you out.’ From where did the Jews drives us out? From within the 1967 borders or the 1948 borders? From within the 1948 borders. So you should drive them out from within the 1948 borders, like they drove you out. Hence, removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle, because it appears in the Book of Allah. ‘Drive them out from wherever they have driven you out.’ So in light of this verse, we say that our dispute with the Palestinian factions that talk about the 1967 borders is one pertaining to faith. On this issue, we base ourselves upon our religion, while you do not.

“(The Quran says:) ‘They will enter the mosque as they entered it the first time.’ Entering the mosque means entering the capital, and entering the capital means liberating Palestine in its entirety, and the implementation of the decree: ‘Drive them out from wherever they have driven you out.’

“Let me advise our brothers and sisters from the Islamic movement – from Hamas and Islamic Jihad – never to use the term ‘1967 (borders).’ When the 1967 borders are mentioned, and then we make certain exceptions, saying, ‘so long as we don’t relinquish…’ and so on, this becomes like part of a joint plan. We have liberated Gaza, part of Palestine, but I am not prepared to accept just Gaza, and later… Our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less. (The Quran says:) ‘Kill them wherever you may find them’ – Allah did not define the 1967 borders or the 1948 borders. We will fight them wherever we can – on the ground, underground, and if we have airplanes, we will fight them from the skies.”
