Hamas Official: No Such Thing as ‘Plestinians’

Hamas Official No Such Thing as Plestinians

You put things differently in a press conference than you do in a fund raiser. This message, from Hamas Interior Minister Fathi Hammad, is for internal consumption:



We all have Arab roots and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties.

Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We’re all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri (“Egyptian”). Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

Who are the Palestinians?

We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian!

They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt.

We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims.

Good to know…

  1. This is true paint a different face on a Nazi pig it is still a Nazi pig

  2. This article proves that the so called "Palestinians" are Arabs.
    The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE.
    The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel, also called the Jewish people, as it is written in the Bible.
    Therefore, the Arabs who invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) must go back to their land, which is Arabia.

  3. It is mute now what you call them but a significant if not majority of Palestinians came to Israel after the first and successive Jewish Aliyah because of the infrastructure, agriculture and industry built by the Jews coming from Europe. Having said that, they are here and have been for generations now.

  4. Jun Sagal says:

    Penestinians? Spanish word pestilence?

  5. Didnt we already know this? Other than Arafat claiming he was a Philistine (the noun not the adjective) we all knew that arab comes from arabia. that is why we call them Arabs. We are jews (named by the Romans but that is a different problem) because we descended and were living in Judea.

  6. Miriam Esther says:

    i'm pretty sure the word jew comes from the word 'yehudi' which means full of thanks …. a derivative of the name Yehuda which was bestowed upon Leah's fourth son as thanks to Hashem …. the area of judea was assigned to the tribe of Yehuda when klal Yisrael came to Israel ….. so while the romans may have referred to those coming from judea as jews, it was most definitely because we, as jews, are full of thanks to Hashem ….

  7. Miriam Esther says:

    i could be wrong but i think the name 'palestine' comes from the word 'philistine' …. philistine derives from the Hebrew word plisha or plishtim …. this roughly translates to 'invader' …. seems they have names themselves correctly ….

  8. Hear it from the 'Horse's mouth' They admit they all came from elsewhere!

There’s nothing romantic or operatic here. Just a brutal murder by Arab terrorists.

We’ve completed Rosh Hashanah. We survived Yom Kippur. We enjoyed Sukkot. We celebrated Simchat Torah… What’s next? Chanukah!

As this week’s Parsha is Breishit (Genesis), we thought it would be interesting to run one of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s talks on Torah, Creation… and Dinosaurs. The photo above is from the site AllAboutJerusalem.com and the article there talks about the dinosaur footprints that were found in Beit Zayit in Jerusalem.

Yishai debates a cynical friend about the Jewish State, talks about the lack of Sukkot in the Hague, and broadcasts from the Moshav Carlebach Music Festival.

Yishai is joined by Renowned Israeli cantor Binyamin Nakonechny and Malkah Fleisher in-studio with special Sukkot songs and stories. Listen in and get inspired!

Jeremy Gimpel sent us this amazing Sukkot related video linking the ancient with the modern…

Yishai presents a special Sukkot show directly from Jerusalem!

Yishai Fleisher talks to Zvika Klein, award-winning journalist covering the Diaspora beat for Makor Rishon and NRG, about the shocking reality of Jews living in refugee camps in Ukraine’s war zone. Also Gil Hoffman, VOI broadcaster and Chief Political Correspondent for the Jerusalem Post recounts the plight of another long-suffering Jew, Jonathan Pollard.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
