Hamas Palestinian tells Zionist Jew - Go back to Germany! (Video) (Updated)Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
For the liberal progressives who serve as Hamas apologists and Palestinian sympathizers (count among them many of the star-struck Obama supporters), blaming Israel for her actions against Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza who support Hamas and share the absurd belief that these Palestinian Muslims are rational and can be reasoned with, here's a reality check to chew on. The Palestinian supporter of Hamas in the below video clearly shows that Hamas supporters cannot be reasoned with nor do they have any intention whatsoever of allowing Israel to continue to exist:
Please, pray tell, how does one reason with people like this?
As World Public Opinion.Org reported back on March 2, 2006, all Palestinians do not share the Hamas position on Israel, as displayed in the above video. In fact, most Palestinians believe Hamas should change its position on eliminating Israel:
The decisive victory of the militant Islamic group Hamas in last month's Palestinian legislative elections (winning 74 of 132 parliamentary seats) has raised the question of whether the Palestinian public has become aligned with Hamas' rejection of Israel's right to exist and its stated goal of creating an Islamic state covering all of historic Palestine, including what is now Israel. Hamas has come under increasing pressure to renounce its goal of eliminating Israel, but Hamas leaders have refused.Note that only 3 percent of Palestinians say they want an Islamic state. The real obstacle to peace is Hamas and it is Hamas that Israel is attacking, not the Palestinian people as a whole.
However, new polling following the election indicates that two-thirds of Palestinians believe Hamas should change its policy of rejecting Israel's right to exist. Most also support a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Post-election polls indicate that Hamas' victory is due largely to Palestinians' desire to end corruption in government rather than support for the organization's political platform.
Most Palestinians agree that Hamas should recognize Israel's right to exist. Two-thirds (63 percent) of those polled Jan. 27-29 by Near East Consulting said Hamas should change its position calling for the elimination of Israel. Even among those who voted for Hamas, only 37 percent support Hamas' position that Israel does not have the right to exist.
A majority of Palestinians also supports the two-state solution. In a Feb. 8-12 poll by the Jerusalem Media & Communication Center (JMCC), 58 percent of Palestinians said they favor the two-state solution, while 22 percent favor "a bi-national state on all of historic Palestine." Three percent said they want an Islamic state (a volunteered response, not included in the list of choices given to respondents).
