Hamas Demands Israel Change Its Flag, Concede Islamic Ownership Of The LandTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
I believe that this "Islam thing" has gone just about far enough! Now, the Islamic terrorist Group that won the recent Palestinian election, HAMAS, has issued a demand (on Sunday evening) that Israel remove the stripes from its flag.
"Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag", Zahar said. "The stripes are symbols of occupation - they signify Israel's borders, stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile."And who in the hell says that Israels land belongs to Muslims? Let's recall that even Jerusalem's role as "The Third Holiest Site in Islam" in mainstream Islamic writings does not precede the 1930s - It was created by the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini, regardless of how the Palestinian Islamists want to color it.
The Hamas official's comments followed Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz's assessment at the weekly Cabinet meeting that the newly elected terror group was "acting responsibly so far."
Zahar also told CNN's Late Edition that the world should not be asking Hamas to recognize Israel, but rather demanding that the Jewish State recognize that Muslims are the "owners of the land."
