Victory Is Near

Victory is near in Gaza for Hamas. Yep. You heard that right. For Hamas.

For the second time since Israel launched its offensive in the Gaza Strip, Hamas television aired a taped message delivered by group leader Ismail Haniyeh on Monday. In the message, Haniyeh declared that Hamas was determined to continue fighting despite Israel's military offensive in the Strip.

"Gaza will not break - our victory over the Zionists is near," Haniyeh said in a fiery speech. "Our fate is in the hands of Allah, so what power could the sons of Zion against him? Allah will take his revenge on them."

These people are delusional.

In other news somewhat closer to reality, Bush says that Hamas must stop the rockets.

U.S. President George W. Bush gave his last press conference at the White House on Monday, 8 days before the inauguration of incoming president Barack Obama, calling for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, but emphasizing Israel's right to defend itself.

As Israeli troops continued targeting Hamas infrastructure in the Gaza Strip for the 17 day, Bush said that Hamas must stop firing rockets into Israel in order for an effective cease-fire to take hold in Gaza and said Israel should avoid harming innocent people there.

"Israel has a right to defend herself," the president told reporters at the White House. "Obviously, in any of these kinds of situations I would hope that she would continue to be mindful of innocent folks and that they help expedite the delivery of humanitarian aid."

"I'm for a sustainable cease-fire, he said, adding that such a truce would require Hamas' agreement to halt firing rockets into Israel. There will not be a sustainable cease-fire if they continue firing rockets. I happen to believe the choice is Hamas' to make."

Bush gave his backing to Egyptian-led efforts to secure a truce that would end the smuggling of weapons into Gaza through underground tunnels. Israel has been pounding the underground arteries with air strikes since it launched the operation on Dec. 27.

I think if we put two and two together we can come to some kind of reasonable conclusion. Hamas is very near the breaking point. So why the announcement of defeat by calling it a victory? It is due to a rule in the Middle East: Arabs never lose wars.

The sons of Zion do not know Allah, But they
Are also the children of Abraham and Allah
Is not their God; The only true and original
God introduced himself to the Sons of Zion
As Yahweh; and so that there would be no
Confusion with his name God repeated his name
To the sons of Zion 6,823 times. Because God
is fair to all other people, He is going to
create new Land for Israel to escape to.
Please verify this in the Bible Book of
Zechariah Chapter 14 verse 4

As soon as that land is revealed the problems of the Israelis will be solved. Until then the Jews will have to hold on to what they have got.

The solution for ending the war is a simple cease of rocket fire into Israel.
The Hamas are bringing destruction and death to the Palestinians strictly due to their stubborn attitude.
The blame for all of these events rests strictly with the terroristic attitude and attacks by Hamas and other terrorist backers in the middle east, if they stop, the war stops and peace endures.
Israel gave up lands to insure peace but it is the power of the palestinians to prevent the terror from within to emerge.
