Hamas Calls for Continued Attacks Against Israel
The Hamas terror movement’s incitement against Israel continues to escalate, in what appears to be a crusade for another wave of terrorism and a new intifada.
Simultaneously, the group, which controls Gaza, is maintaining its intensive campaign to delegitimize the rule of the Palestinian Authority in areas of Judea and Samaria.
Khalil al-Haya, a Hamas leader, spoke at a rally in Gaza on Tuesday, asserting that his movement is ready to fight for the Al-Aqsa Mosque against “Israeli occupation.”
Al-Haya blasted the Palestinian Authority and ordered Palestinian people to rise up and overthrow it, as well as continue attacks against Israel to protect the mosque atop the Temple Mount.
“The time has come for the West Bank to rise up and oppose authority, particularly those who who coordinate security with Israel (i.e. the PA),” al-Haya charged. “It’s time for this government to be thrown into the trash dump of history.”
Expressing Arabs’ willingness to spill blood for Al-Aqsa, al-Haya argued “we have a right to be angry and rise up and set fire to the ground under invaders…we say your occupation of Jerusalem won’t last long.”
The Hamas leader also called on Arab communities in European countries to protest outside of Israeli embassies and denounce “attacks from settlers and the army” against the mosque.
