Hamas’ top boss Khaled Mashaal blamed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the recent escalation in terror in an interview with Britain’s Sky News.
“Our fight is a national fight, but Netanyahu is turning it into a religious fight. He bears responsibility for the consequences of what is happening,” he said. “
He explained the violence as a law similar to that in physics that “for every action there’s a reaction.”
Mashaal continued, “The action of the occupation targeting the Islamic and the Christian Holy sites, in Jerusalem and Palestine, and specifically the Al Aqsa Mosque, brings about the angry Palestinian reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire when he allows members of his government, the Knesset, and the extremists to repeatedly storm the Al Aqsa mosque – that’s dangerous.”
Since he is so sensitive to the Muslim claim that the Temple Mount is only for Muslims, how does he explain the massacre of four Jews whole they were praying in a synagogue when they were shot and axed to death last month?
Well, you see, this was a “rare occasion” that a synagogue was targeted, but Netanyahu angered the Muslims, so he is to blame.
“We can’t take events out of context, Mashaal reasoned. “ I told you, for every action there is a reaction. Netanyahu is playing with fire and he will bear the consequences of that. The Aqsa mosque is for the Muslims. The Muslims were blocked from praying there. The soldiers and the police and the right-wing extremists were allowed to storm in with their shoes, into the sanctuary of the Mosque — this is playing with fire. Netanyahu is responsible for the killing of the Israelis first, and the Palestinian deaths that followed, because of what is being committed against our people and for them not having hope on the horizon for a just settlement of the Palestinian cause.”
Why didn’t anyone realize that until now? Jews “storm” the Muslim Al Qaeda Aqsa mosque, so Muslims attack Jews in their own house of worship.
You know, an eye for an eye, or in this case, an eye for a lie.
Jews visiting the Temple Mount do not “storm” the Al Aqsa mosque, the term the Arab world uses every time a Jew steps foot on the holy site, all of which it considers the “compound” of the Al Aqsa Mosque
The only time the mosque area is stormed is when police respond to Muslim “worshippers” who pray by trying to kill the Jews.
“The Palestinian people no longer have anything to lose,” he said in the interview..” In light of the continuation of the occupation and settlements, stealing the land, the attacks on women and children, and the Holy sites – this is spontaneous….
“It gives two messages: the first message is that the Israeli stubbornness, combined with the international impotence in solving the Palestinian issue with a just solution, enabling the Palestinian people their self-determination, and getting rid of occupation and building an independent state — this will lead to chaos in the region, not just in the Palestinian arena, but an open conflict — a blood bath.”
Blood, More blood. Keep the Jewish blood flowing until there is none left.
And it’s all Netanyahu’s fault.
“I think Netanyahu’s position is now revealed to everyone in international public opinion,” according to Mashaal.” Even in the West. Put Hamas aside, what about Mr. Mahmoud Abbas? He has positions which satisfy western and American standards. And with all this, what has Netanyahu done in return for it? Nothing. He thwarted all peace initiatives even the American efforts that were hosted by Mr. John Kerry for almost a year.
