Hezbollah reveals what Muslims think of Israel

Nothing like someone's own words to show you what he really thinks. Hezbollah's Secretary General issued the following statement on its website:

"First: Historic Palestine, from the sea to the river belongs to the people of Palestine and to the whole nation.

Second: It is impermissible for anyone and no one has the right, whoever he may be, whether Palestinian, Arab, Muslim or Christian, no matter who it is, regardless of the claims of representation anyone makes, whether representation claims of historic legitimacy, revolutionary, popular, legal or constitutional, no one in this world is entitled to give up a grain of soil from the land of Palestine, nor a drop of water from the waters in Palestine, nor a single character from the name of Palestine.

Third: the ‘Israeli' entity currently existing on the land of Palestine is a usurper and occupation entity, aggressive, cancerous, illegitimate and illegal presence.

Fourth: It is impermissible for anyone, whoever they may be, to recognize this entity, grant it legitimacy or recognize an existence for it.

Fifth: Collaboration and normalization with ‘Israel' are forbidden sins. All scholars, Islamic reference authorities are in consensus about this, and anyone that says otherwise, let him step forward and present his case.

These principles and constants are unalterable by time, circumstances, conditions, strengths or weaknesses at all...

This is our nation, for more than sixty years the whole world is pressing us into recognizing ‘Israel', to collaborate and normalize relations with ‘Israel' (so what) yet none has been able to impose that upon us.

Even the states that signed so-called peace treaties with ‘Israel' have not been able to force their people to hold relations or work with the Zionists, or to normalize relations with them.
Hence this is possible...

At the far end of vulnerability and helplessness, we are able not to recognize ‘Israel', nor give in to it or at least not to sign anything over.
Text of speech

Did anyone notice any Muslims authorities or leaders condemning this speech?

I'm confused. About 60 years ago, there used to be a country called Palestine, but then some other countries decided to call it Israel and throw the Palestinians out. The Palestinians now want their country back but people like Kingfish think they don't deserve to have it because....well, I don't know why. I think it has something to do with the fact that Christians and Jews partially share the same 2,000 year old superstitious text. Or something. What a great way to develop foreign policy!

So, Kingfish......why don't the Palestinians deserve their country back?

Best BBQ in Jackson?

Their declaration doesn't even make sense. Statement #2 directly contradicts the other statements, specifically numbers 1, 3, and 4.

Go over to the JFP for your BBQ question.

Yeah, I've read JFP's "best of." But since this place is frequented by a large contingent of pig eating, football watching repubs, who like to express their opinions on seemingly everything, i figured a simple question about the best BBQ restaurants in town would get some good responses.

Oh, you didn't tell us that an asshole was looking for a recommendation.

Haha. I guess I should've prefaced my original question. Now you know, and can hopefully contribute to the conversation. Or do you not like pig as much as I do?

Can someone help explain why the Palestinians shouldn't want their country back? Surely the pro-Israel support here isn't just reflexive?
Anyone? Anyone?

The sad fact of the matter is that many displaced Palestinians and their supporters will never recognize Israel and war is the answer we will live with until destruction of the entire area occurs.

Beware the anonymous infestation of anti-Semites.

It will take a couple generations before the Palestinians completely give in. There are still people living today who were kicked out of, or forced to abandon, their homes. The younger Palestinians don't have as strong of feelings about their "homeland," as their parents and grandparents do.

Now, if the Palestinians could make good BBQ, they would probably be taken into a country and accepted more easily. Well, everywhere but Israel of course.

Alvin, are you sleepy because you ate a big BBQ plate lunch?

No one kicked out the Arab residents of Israel. When Israel announced its independence, the Arab countries declared war on them and told those Arabs to leave their homes in Israel as they were going to wipe out the whole area, then give them the spoils. The Arabs abandoned their homes, thinking they would return with the conquering armies and enrich themselves. Unfortunately for them, the Israelis won and they became a refugee football kicked around by the Arabs.

Kingfish said...

Discussing bbq pork on this thread is an excellent idea.

Kingfish, that doesn't change the strong feelings those Palestinian refugees have about their homeland.

Do you agree that with time, the generational gap will bring the two sides together? Or if not together, peacefully within proximity?

Also, I would really like to know if there's an Arab version of Glenn Beck out there.

Try the Exxon station on Northside.

Dine-in, try Pig Out on Old Canton.

Kingfish said...

You sure about Pig Out?

Draw a box on a map around the JFP BBQ joints and it almost looks like the SafeCity green zone.

What existed 60years ago was the British Palestine Mandate. Reading about that and the Zionist movement that began in the late 1800's ( 1898 if memory serves) is rather important to understanding the history of the region.

Add to that history, the history of the 3 religions and it's easy to see why you've got such animosity.

However, once you do,it won't help much in discussions as both sides can go back to before Christ to air their grievances with one another. And will demand you choose up're either with them or against them.

Like the Hatfields and McCoys or your friends in a bad divorce, both sides can come up with some horrible things done by the other side and have little tolerance for neutrality.

But, it's rather interesting to read unbiased historical accounts ...finding them is difficult.

There are Jews who will tell you there is no such thing as Palestine or Palestinians and Arabs who will tell you that there Israel never existed and both will bombard you will selective historical information.

Perhaps we should just pick an arbitrary time in history to cement borders and the names of countries! ( sarcasm)

Frankly, in my effort to understnnd, I've become pretty much fed up with everybody who'd rather be " right" and "win" than find a way to get along.

Wonder why jesus's dad picked Nazarth, known as "the Arab capital of Israel," the population is made up exclusively of Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, for his son to grow up?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
