First Israeli Retreat

June 29, one PM Eastern Standard Time. First news came that Israeli tanks are withdrawing from northern Gaza. The Israeli retreat means that the Zionist Jews have failed to crush the Islamic resistance and now retreating to create the impression that they want peace.

Both President Bush and his terrorist friend Sharon were vociferously saying that Hamas must be dismantled before any cease fire. It didn't work. It's very obvious that the real forces in the field are Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. Abbas ('Abu Mazen') is merely an American asset.

The Islamic fighters can use the coming cease fire to regroup. The Zionist Jews had destroyed the economy of Palestine and turned the entire country into a concentration camp.

[There was a quick change of terminology on MSNBC TV from "Palestinian terrorists" to "Islamic militants." The day is not far when the Islamists will be known for what they are: liberators.]
The following is a comment to Nick Maheras of from Imam Badi Ali, North Carolina Islamic leader, originally from Palestine:

Badi Ali, a native Palestinian and imam of the Islamic Center of the Triad in Greensboro, shows no sign of relenting in his opposition to peace with Israel.

"I don't think that the truce will hold," he said. "I'm calling on the Palestinian Authority to unite with the Islamic movement to support the intefadeh.

"Negotiations with the Israelis should stop immediately. Such negotiations are merely a giant step backward in the long journey toward liberating Palestine."

The intefadeh, already about 3 years old, is an uprising by Palestinians in territories occupied by Israel in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

Ali said he has no expectation that the Israelis will return any of those occupied territories through peaceful means.

"The only practical way to liberate Palestine is through continuous struggle against a powerful racist enemy with an expansionist ideology," Ali said.

"Liberating Palestine can only be accomplished through the efforts and resources of the whole Muslim nation, and the Muslims of Palestine should be at the forefront of this effort."
