Head Hamashole Khaled Meshaal Claims Not Aiming At Civilians; Promises To Warn Israeli Civilians From Now On

Yes, this is not from The Onion. Meshaal really did say this.

“We do not target civilians, and we try most of the time to aim at military targets and Israeli bases,” Meshaal said. “But we admit that we have a problem. We do not have sophisticated weapons. We do not have the weapons available to our enemy … so aiming is difficult. We do promise you, though, that we will try in the future and we will warn people … We have given warnings to Israeli civilians. We promise that if we get more precise weapons, we will only target military targets.”

Meshaal is banking on the average person not having read the Hamas charter. Nor being aware of the threats being put out by Hamas even during this latest round of fighting. Threats like this:

eaten straw

And I also call BS on him thinking they do not have sophisticated weapons, considering they have been bragging they do.

He gets bonus chutzpah points for admitting in the same interview his organization was behind the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenager boys. Yep, civilians.

Here’s the interview.

As you can see, he is shameless and truly believes people will believe his lies.

Unfortunately, he is right.

    It’s time for the Israeli Air Force to pay a visit to Qatar. I’m sure it has weapons smart enough to avoid hitting U.S. military installations there while taking out the Hamas hotels and Qatar’s banks that finance genocide.

    N64 Hamas video? :/

  • mzk1_1

    Like that school bus?

    (BTW, it’s not just Hamas that likes to target school buses. Go to insraelnationalnews and search for “school bus” (in quotes) and you’ll see a bunch of attacks – including by plain of Jerusalem Arabs.)

  • mzk1_1

    You are correct. They will. Unfortunately.

    Why is he still alive??

    What a liar you are. Go peddle your lies where all of the readers don’t know more than you.

  • Mr. Idaho

    The current goals of Hamas were illustrated clearly by how building materials and lives were diverted from civic projects. Better to rule in Hell than serve in… well, in a civilized society.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Try telling the truth for a change. You might find it a refreshingly novel experience.

  • Inessa

    It was not actually declared obsolete, but at various times leaders like Meshaal have stated (in English) that it is a historical document and such. It has not been replaced or rewritten. At the same time, Mahmoud al-Zahar stated that accepting the 1967 lines is a stepping stone, to the actual goal of the complete annihilation of Israel. Both Meshaal and Haniyeh have repeatedly publicly stated the continued goal of “The river to the sea”. Also, publicly and gruesomely executing 18 of their own for suspicion of being collaborators, should give a clear indication of how their diplomacy plays out.

  • AussieDave

    Umm, sorry, but you don’t get to use my blog as a platform to spread your propaganda. Claiming the Hamas charter does not represent their position – despite all evidence to contrary – is a reprehensible lie. I have told you about that in the past, and I think I even banned you, which clearly did not stick.

  • dabney

    LOL! Ali likes to come here and moralize to the moral. Just another Taqiyya-jockey hoping to deceive the ignorant who may stumble upon this site in their search for truth.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    No, you enjoy being a troll.

  • dabney

    “people who may not necessarily agree “? I don’t disagree with you, Ali. I think you are an apologist for evil. Nothing to discuss here.

  • mikeh420

    We in the USA still hold ourselves accountable to a charter from the 1770’s.

  • Mr. Idaho

    Just making an observation that by Hamas’ actions, it’s raison d’etre hasn’t changed.

  • walt kovacs

    so why does the charter still exist?

  • walt kovacs

    and hamas still lives by its original charter

    to say different is to deny reality

    which is what most filthy, jew hating, terror loving leftists do

  • walt kovacs

    arabs and jews already live as equals in israel
    when have jews ever lived as equals in arab/muslim lands?

  • Inessa

    Numerous polls indicate most Palestenians are unaware that the charter is not in effect, and it continues to be often quoted, in public, including at Hamas rallies, post 2007, and including by Palestenian religious leaders. Verbally stating something while not amending the main document of the organisation is worthless.
    Same applies to the notion of saying “From the river to the sea” but then saying they mean something else. Historic Palestine included Jordan and Syria. Hamas only refers to the precise part of “Historic Palestine” where Israel is (not coincidentally). Plus according to the logic that “All of historic Palestine should be under popular control, as there are more Palestenians”, all of Jordan would be included as there are a majority Palestenuan population by numbers there. Plus it doesn’t wash to claim “historic Palestine” but at the same time claim the charter is irrelevant as it only has “historic value”.
    Most countries do not “try” suspected collaborators while shooting them in public, and most countries do not drag their bodies behind motorcycles. Besides, they claim to not have any rights if self determination, to be controlled by occupation and to not have an army.

  • kweansmom

    “Numerous documents have been submitted by Hamas to both the UN, PLO, US, and EU that iterate their official positions/terms, and they contradict the verses in question from the old charter.”

    Can you provide evidence of these numerous documents, eg links to media reports or to the documents themselves?

  • kweansmom

    Please provide evidence of Hamas’ willingness to accept Israel’s existence and of agreeing to a 2-state solution.

    you need to learn taqiah from your hamas master

  • Mr. Idaho

    Wiki articles should never be taken at face value since any hot-button topic is going to be slanted. Worthless reference.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Let’s see. You said, “Jews were treated well in Muslim lands.” Please explain the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews from Muslim lands from 1948 onwards and the theft of their properties by your virtuous, tolerant Muslims. Either put up or shut up.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    No, I’m not going to rummage through wiki looking for links. You’re the one who made the assertions, you post the links yourself. Either put up or shut up.

    Otherwise, I have just one question. Is Hamas a terrorist organization? Yes or no with no hemming and hawing.

  • mzk1_1

    Or at least we claim to, in theory. It would be nice if the Supreme Court didn’t make a joke of it.

  • Johnny May

    Does this charter call for the extermination of the British? I think not…

  • kweansmom

    That’s a shame in a way because his/her arguments are so easy to refute.

    He/she is trying to prove that Hamas has changed its view on Israel and is willing to live in peace with an Israeli state if they will withdraw to the 1967 borders. He or she brings proofs from Meshal’s interviews with foreign press. However, the message he presents in Arabic to his own people is clear; all of “Palestine” from the river to the sea, is ours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0DiQRO_49M. Even the foreign-language interviews in which he seems willing to compromise mention the right of return, which would mean an Arab majority, and the “democratic process” by which Israel would no longer be a Jewish state.

  • Johnny May

    No, historicall Syria included Palestine and Jordan, not the other way round.

  • Inessa

    I was replying to a comment which ha since been deleted.

    Among other rambling, he wrote this:

    Historic Palestine has meant many different things at many different times to many different people. Its not cleanly defined. However, the historic Palestine
    referred to by the native Palestinians since the 1920’s, refers to modern day
    Israel + Gaza + West Bank
    I was trying t make the point that the concept of “historic Palestine” keeps morphing conveniently to fit into the map of Israel.
