Hamas, "Disengagement" & the Desecration of G-d's Name...

In an Arutz-7 article, we are able to clearly see one of the overlooked tragedies of the "Disengagement", and another reason why Arab terrorists are able to celebrate - courtesy of the State of Israel and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
"Palestinian Authority Television hosts and participants alike are calling the Israeli moves from its towns a 'great victory for Allah'," write PMW's Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook.

One poster shows the laughing face of Hamas founder and arch-terrorist Ahmed Yassin, next to that of a somber religious Jew, with the caption: "Our Koran proves that we were right and your Talmud proves that you were wrong."

Another Hamas poster shows a rifle and the Koran, with the words: "With these two together, the victory has been achieved."

Too many of us, both here in Israel and around the world fail to realize (or choose not to) that the "Palestinian - Israeli" conflict is in reality a conflict between Islam and Judaism. On many occasions Israel has taken steps that would have brought about a "Palestinian" state (Arab rejection of partition in 1947 which led to Israel's War of Independence, the 6 Day War - before there were any "Occupied territories"...). As long as we continue to fail to recognize what the root of the conflict we can have no realistic expectations in hoping to resolve it. The conflict is not about Jewish settlements, it is about Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, which constitutes an affront to the Islam, and as such, every Muslim must make Jihad against the Jewish State of Israel until this "Naqba" (tragedy) is corrected.

As a result of the continuous pattern retreat and concessions that the State of Israel has made in the name of "peace", we have only managed to embolden Arab terrorists who view our weakness as a sign of their own strength, as a victory for Allah and Islam, and another step towards Islamic domination throughout the entire Middle East. At the same time, this leads to a desecration of the G-d of Israel, who is perceived by all, Jew and non-Jew alike to be weak, and unable to defend the rights of His people to His land.

Until we are able to remedy this situation and once again, as was the case during the Six Day War, to live as proud Jews in the Land of Israel, as Jews who are willing to stand up and fight for Jewish rights without apologizing to the world for doing so, we will continue to suffer retreats and setbacks as we have become accustomed to.
