Hamas calls for more suicide bombings
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 05:07 AM by drdon326



As the Palestinian Central Election Committee was holding a press conference in Ramallah on Monday to announce the final results of the election for the chairmanship of the Palestinian Authority, hundreds of students attended a rally organized by Hamas at Bir Zeit University, where they called for more suicide attacks against Israel.

"Oh suicide bomber, wrap yourself with an explosive belt and fill the scene with blood," chanted a chorus of five male students at the rally, held by the Hamas-affiliated Islamic List to mark the ninth anniversary of the killing of Hamas bomb-maker Yehya Ayyash, better known as "The Engineer."

Green Hamas flags and large portraits of slain Hamas leaders Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz Rantisi decorated the campus and the hall where some 500 activists gathered to honor the former university student responsible for a string of suicide bombings that killed at least 100 Israelis in the mid-90s.

"Ayyash is alive and don't say that he's dead," a speaker told the crowd, who responded by shouting "Allahu Akbar! (God is great)." Another speaker described the Hamas bomb-maker as "the engineer of death for those who deserved to die."

The students also paid tribute to anther colleague, Izzaddin al-Masri, who carried out the suicide attack in Jerusalem's Sbarro restaurant in 2001, killing 15 people and wounding more than 100.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

Unfortunately, we will never know what the result would be of a fair agreement made by many on both sides since the dreams of the majority are restricted by the activities of the minority on both sides.

2. Agree.....
you know, a few years ago there was a rally by palestinian women against suicide bombing ( and no i dont have a link).

Where are the rallys NOW against these war crimes ?

Where are the palestinian "moderates" against these thinsgs?

How come the palestinian media doesnt condemn these things?

3. Good questions, but
I think the Palestinian public realizes how disastrous the suicide bombing campaign has been for them. The other day I read somewhere (apologies, no link) that something like 80% of Palestinians favour reconciliation with Israel. This must be a sharp increase from, say, two years ago. Let's see if Abbas is willing and able to do his part.

4. I wished I saw that poll....
sadly the ones i've posted in the past failed to show that.

And certainly the media reflects (incites?) just the opposite.
