From the Middle East, we have this, as reported in Ben Ariel’s article for

Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently threatened that the terrorist group will shut down the U.S. embassy in Israel once it “liberates Palestine”.

In an interview on Al-Jazeera on December 17, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Hamas leader also made clear that the group “would not relinquish a single gun, not even a single bullet.”

“Annihilation will be the fate not only of the Jews, but also of their helpers and of the people who trusted them, cooperated with them and who betrayed their cause and their religion for personal interests,” said Zahar.

Translation:  The Jews were going to be annihilated anyway.  But now we’ll annihilate “their helpers” (that would be the USA) anyone else who cooperates with Israel and “who betrayed their cause and their religion for personal interests – which would be Muslims who don’t go along with hamas’s plans.

Remember, annihilation of the Jews is explicitly stated in the hamas charter, and therefore has nothing at all to do with the USA’s embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  That is an ongoing given, regardless of where any embassy is placed.

Its exact words, at the end of Article 7:

 The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).

That clear enough for you?

And then, for the folks who still think there is such a thing as the “two-state solution” we have this, at the beginning of Article 13:

Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement. Abusing any part of Palestine is abuse directed against part of religion. Nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its religion.

Is that clear enough for you?

Finally, keep in mind that hamas and the so-called “moderate” fatah have signed a unity agreement, and not one word of what you just read was disavowed by “moderate” fatah.

These are the people the world demands that Israel make peace with.
