Following are excerpts
from an interview with Hamas MP and cleric Yunis Al-Astal, which aired
on Al-Aqsa TV on May 11, 2011:
The [Jews] are brought in droves to Palestine so that the Palestinians
– and the Islamic nation behind them – will have the honor of annihilating
the evil of this gang.
All the predators, all
the birds of prey, all the dangerous reptiles and insects, and all the
lethal bacteria are far less dangerous than the Jews.
In just a few years,
all the Zionists and the settlers will realize that their arrival in
Palestine was for the purpose of the great massacre, by means of which
Allah wants to relieve humanity of their evil.
When Palestine is liberated
and its people return to it, and the entire region, with the grace of
Allah, will have turned into the United States of Islam, the land of
Palestine will become the capital of the Islamic Caliphate, and all
these countries will turn into states within the Caliphate. When this
happens, any Palestinian will be able to live anywhere, because the
land of Islam is the property of all Muslims.
Until this happens, we
must reject all the resettlement plans, naturalization, or even reparations
prior to the return of the refugees.
