Education in a Khan Yunis high school in Gaza: At a recent assembly marking the 2nd anniversary of Israels Operation Cast Lead against Hamas rockets and missiles, a Hamas member of the PA parliament visited and emphasized his organizations commitment to liberate all of Palestine.
The speaker, Yihye Mussa, said, [Israel’s] war against Gaza was designed to liquidate the nation referring to the Palestinian nation which has taken on form only in the past five or six decades. (In fact, histories of the 1948 war, such as O Jerusalem by Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins, use the term Palestinian when referring to the Jews of the land.)
Mussa acknowledged that Israels purpose in launching the war was also to liquidate the resistance the term Arabs use to refer to their self-justified terrorism against Israel. Israel did indeed announce that the military campaign was to put an end to the thousands of rockets and missiles Hamas and other terrorists in Gaza had rained down upon Israeli areas such as the Negev in the previous years and months.
We emphasize before our compatriots in the West Bank [Judea and Samaria], Mussa said, that we are marching towards the liberation of Palestine, from its sea [Mediterranean] to the Jordan River, with its capital Jerusalem.
One of the teachers who also addressed the students requested that they study well, because this is the best weapon on the way to victory and liberation.
Hamas, recognized as a terrorist entity by the United States and other countries, received a boost recently when former U.S. Attorney General Ramsay Clark visited the area. Clark has long been known as a strong detractor of Israel, and even represented the Palestinian Authority in American courts against law suits filed by American-Israeli terror victims.
Clark met with Gaza-Hamas chief Ismail Haniye, who said at a joint press conference, Clarks visit expresses true recognition of the legal Palestinian government… The Palestinian nation will continue its strong stand and struggle until it returns to the land that was conquered in 1948 and releases its prisoners from Israeli prisons.
