Following are excerpts from a July 30, 2006 statement by Sa’d Al-Katatni, chairman of Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party, which was posted on the Internet on March 3, 2013:
Today, we express the true will of the people, when we say: No to the aggression, no to the destruction of Lebanon, no to the destruction of Palestine, yes to the destruction of Israel. We say: No to Arab impotence. If the governments are incapable – the peoples are ready. Open the gate of Jihad for us, so we can unite with our brothers in Palestine and in Lebanon.
Don’t be sad, Sa’d. Lebanon isn’t all that destroyed:
Hizbullah already is in possession of most of the chemical weapons and other unconventional means of attack that it could get from Syria, he explained. While there have been reports of some such weapons reaching the group in light of Syria’s internal conflict, the new weapons do not change the terrorist group’s capabilities, he said.
Hizbullah cannot use its current supply of chemical weapons for two reasons, he explained: first of all, the group lacks a delivery system, and secondly, it fears the international backlash that would follow use of unconventional weapons.
I wouldn’t worry about “international backlash”, Hezzies. If Europe won’t condemn you as a terrorist organization now, a little nerve gas isn’t going to ruffle anyone’s feathers.
And about those “brothers in Palestine” (wherever that is):
The Palestinian Authority security forces have arrested 66 Hamas supporters in the West Bank during the month of February, the Gaza-based Islamist movement announced Tuesday.
The arrests come as efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah appear to have failed.
If the lives of innocent Israelis weren’t in daily peril, you’d have to laugh.
