News Roundup for April 19

Iran is promoting the Palestinian cause again, but in a way that does not help.
Venezuela's chare d'affair to Tehran described Palestinian nation as a victim of injustice and inequality, and called on the world countries to open their eyes to the ongoing catastrophe in Palestine.
Actually, the world's eyes see clearly what the Palestinians are doing to themselves, which is why Holland refused to let PM Haniyeh visit them, on the grounds he is a terrorist.

Hamas, of course, disagrees.
Palestinian legislator Dr. Salah Al-Bardaweel of Hamas Movement has scathingly condemned on Thursday the EU “selective” policy in dealing with PA ministers, affirming that attempts to isolate Hamas in the Palestinian arena will definitely fail.
It will definitely fail. Definitely. Definitely it will fail.


In light of the media's parsing the syllables of whatever Hamas terrorists say to show their new-found "moderation" and acceptance of Israel, Hamas' own Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar, deputy Palestinian Legislative Council member and the former Palestinian Foreign Minister, clarifies the meaning of the Mecca agreement for everyone.
Dr, Zahhar said that "what happened in Mecca agreement were four issues; firstly , the agreements and laws that are related with the Palestinian issue which was signed by Arab countries and the PLO, but we didn’t mean (Oslo agreements), because it is known here that we did not recognize the Oslo Agreement and we will not recognize it at all.
In other words, when Hamas agreed to "respect" all signed agreements, it meant that it would respect all agreements with Arab countries, but not agreements with Israel.
" regarding the word " respect" or " accept" .. if I respect your views , it doesn't mean that I accept your views. So , the saying that we are accepting the Oslo agreement is not true"
So, they "respect" Israel's view but will unconditionally continue to try to wipe it off of the map despite any agreements they said they would "respect". Is this possible? Al-Zahar explains.
What does commitment mean in Law ?? does respect mean commitment ?? If respect means commitment , then why the two words are different in Language ..they are surely different". If Hamas wanted to recognize "Israel" , we will say it frankly. Hamas does not have the intention to recognize "Israel" at all because we will contradict the Quran,
If anyone thought a signed agreement with these people means anything, think again.


Hizbullah continues to be stubborn as a mule over the Hariri tribunal. They have major objections about the nature of the tribunal but, for some reason, refuse to say what those objections are.
Hizbullah has stood rigid in its stance, refusing to offer to the U.N.'s top legal adviser Nicolas Michel the group's "observations" on the international tribunal to try suspects in the 2005 assassination of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri and related crimes.

"Undoubtedly, we have remarks about the regulations of the tribunal, but we will only present them to a legitimate (Lebanese) government," he was quoted by An Nahar as saying on Thursday.
And, for Hizbullah, the only "legitimate Lebanese government" in their eyes is one that answers to the call of the foreign occupiers, Syria.
Fneish warned that establishment of the tribunal would "threaten and undermine stability in Lebanon,"
Meaning that Hizbullah is threatening to undermine the stability of Lebanon if they don't get their way.
...adding that international intervention will not solve the months' long political stalemate that has crippled the country.
Meaning that the "months' long political stalemate that has crippled the country" caused by Hizbullah will continue until they get their way.

Hizbullah has one goal: bring Lebanon under full Syrian control for Iranian purposes. They call themselves "Lebanese", but there is no greater enemy to Lebanon that these terrorists.

Terrorist is as terrorist does.


And finally...

Another endorsement for the balanced, impartial, and fair BBC from a convicted terrorist.
Jailed Tanzim head Marwan Barghouti called for the release of kidnapped BBC reporter Alan Johnston, who was abducted by gunmen in the Gaza Strip over a month ago.

“I call for the immediate release of the journalist in the name of 10,000 Palestinian prisoners.
I think he means, for the price of 10,000 Palestinian prisoners.
Johnston is a friend of the Palestinian people,” Barghouti said.
Palestinians understand who their friends are. Too bad for Alan Johnston that it didn't benefit him.
