Top Hamas official says terror group will never renounce jihad

And CAIR will never renounce Hamas – they are one, via: AFP: Top official says Hamas will never renounce jihad.

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories — Senior Hamas official Mahmud Zahar said on Monday that the Palestinian Islamist movement will never give up its armed struggled against Israel.

The statement comes as Gaza Strip officials openly attacked the movement’s leader-in-exile Khaled Meshaal, who has decided not to run again this summer for the leadership of Hamas, for prioritising “peaceful resistance.”

“We are fighting for our dignity and rights. Jihad is our path, our life, our pride and we will not renounce it no matter the sacrifices,” said Zahar, quoted on the website of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s armed wing.

Hamas will “never give up its armed struggle against the Zionist enemy,” he said during a speech in Zeitun, a neighbourhood in east Gaza, in honour of the “martyrs” of Israel’s December 2008-January 2009 Cast Lead operation against the enclave.

If that’s not enough, Hamas Prime Minister Says Hamas Is “Jihad Arm” Of The Muslim Brotherhood; May Merge With Islamic Jihad.

Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch executive director Kenneth Roth said, Rights group urges West to get over Islamist aversion.

“The international community must . . . come to terms with political Islam when it represents a majority preference,” he said. “Islamist parties are genuinely popular in much of the Arab world, in part because many Arabs have come to see political Islam as the antithesis of autocratic rule.”

  2. We must “come to terms with political Islam” — sounds just like Neville Chamberlain.
