Gaza evacuation by Israel
leads to destruction of Israel
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook - March 14, 2007
Hamas’s new Al Aqsa Satellite TV broadcasts numerous political messages during its daily programming. The message that has been repeating most frequently this month is a statement made by Ahmad Yassin, founder and former head of Hamas, who was killed by Israel. The statement was made in response to Israel's plan to evacuate Israeli towns in Gaza Strip in 2005.
Yassin's message was that the Palestinians had found the key to destroying Israel. Since terror was forcing Israel to leave its towns in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinians would now only have to keep up the terror in Israel's other cities and Israel would run from those as well.
"Tel Aviv is gone… If death and murder chase them in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya and everywhere among them, then they will say: '… I want to flee and go back to Europe and America.'”
Fatah and Hamas have been competing for years in taking credit for the terror that they say forced the government of Ariel Sharon to decide to leave Israeli towns in the Gaza Strip. The frequency that this has been playing on Hamas TV – for example, seven times on March 12th alone -- indicates how important this political message is to Hamas.
The following is the transcript of Ahmad Yassin, founder and former head of Hamas, reacting to Israel's planned evacuation of Israeli towns in Gaza Strip in 2005.
