Hamas Leader Tells ‘Education’ Conference Israel is a ‘Cancerous Tumor that Must Be Removed’
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh made new incendiary statements against Israel at a Tuesday conference on education in Gaza, iusing words that could be described as educating toward the hatred of Jews.
Israel’s Channel 10 News reports that Haniyeh called for Israel’s destruction and said: “Israel is a cancerous tumor that must be removed and uprooted.” He further said (Hebrew link):
The hand of the resistance and of the Jihad fighters has already begun to extract the tumor, and will take action in order to end the occupation of Palestine in its entirety. With the help of Allah, we will break the occupation.
The Palestinian “resistance” is a code word for those groups and militants who take violent action against Israeli military targets and civilians.
Channel 10 reports that Haniyeh took pains to tie his message of incitement to the local education system. He called on Gaza’s teachers to “raise a generation that will fight and will liberate the Palestinians and the occupation.”
Earlier this month at Hamas’ 25th anniversary celebration, Hamas political leader Khaled Mashal vowed his group would never give up “an inch of the land” at a rally that brought out tens of thousands of supporters in Gaza. He said in a fiery speech:
Palestine is ours, from the river to the sea and from the south to the north. There will be no concession on an inch of the land…We will never recognize the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation and therefore there is no legitimacy for Israel, no matter how long it will take.
While some among the Palestinian Authority leadership of the West Bank have expressed a willingness to “give up” the dream of evicting all Jews from Israel, Hamas maintains the hope to one day establish a single sharia-ruled Palestinian state on the entirety of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, which includes all of Gaza, the West Bank and the State of Israel.
At Tuesday’s education conference, Prime Minister Haniyeh addressed representatives from Egypt, Qatar and Tunisia. Qatar provides financial aid for Gaza, while Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood leaders are ideological allies of Hamas.
