Khaled Meshaal and Iran: Willing to fight to the last drop of 'Palestinian' blood

Egyptian officials have told the Jerusalem Post that Iran is pressuring Hamas not to accept Egypt's 'cease fire' proposal - as if Meshaal needs any such pressure.
The Egyptian official said that the two Iranian emissaries, Ali Larijani, Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, and Said Jalili of the Iranian Intelligence Service, met in the Syrian capital with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and Islamic Jihad Secretary-General Ramadan Shallah.

"As soon as the Iranians heard about the Egyptian cease-fire initiative, they dispatched the two officials to Damascus on an urgent mission to warn the Palestinians against accepting it," the Egyptian government official told the Post.

"The Iranians threatened to stop weapons supplies and funding to the Palestinian factions if they agreed to a cease-fire with Israel. The Iranians want to fight Israel and the US indirectly. They are doing this through Hamas in Palestine and Hizbullah in Lebanon".


The Egyptian official accused Iran of "encouraging" Hamas to continue firing rockets at Israel with the hope that this would trigger a war that would divert attention from Iran's nuclear plans.

"This conflict serves the interests of the Iranians," he said. "They are satisfied because the violence in the Gaza Strip has diverted attention from their nuclear ambitions. The Iranians are also hoping to use the Palestinian issue as a 'powerful card' in future talks with the Americans.

"They want to show that they have control over Hamas and many Palestinians".
And it's not just the Iranians: It's the Syrians too.
Karam Jaber, editor of the semi-official Egyptian weekly Roz Al-Youssef magazine, said that Hamas was caught between the Syrian anvil and the Iranian hammer. The Iranians, he said, prevented Hamas from negotiating a cease-fire with Israel, while the Syrians were blackmailing and intimidating the Hamas leaders in Damascus.

"History won't forget to mention that Hamas had inflicted death and destruction on the Palestinians," he said. "We hope that Hamas has learned the lesson and realizes that it has been fighting a war on behalf of others. We hope the Hamas leaders will realize that they are fighting a destructive war on behalf of the Iranians and Syrians".
Ironically, as I started to type this post, Israel Radio - which I have going in the background much of the day - ran a telephone interview with a 'Palestinian' in Gaza who is begging Israel to stop the bombing. Iran and Syria could care less. Khaled Meshaal is happy to keep giving orders to the Hamas leadership in Gaza from his safe house in Damascus. And Ismail Haniyeh, Mahmoud Zahar and Said Siyam - Hamas three leaders in Gaza who are hiding in a bunker underneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City (how's that for human shields) - are happy to keep sending subordinates to their deaths while they hide out in relative safety (Israel is unlikely to bomb a hospital).

But the key to understanding the situation here is to understand that the Egyptians have been doing the same thing for the last sixty years that the Iranians and Syrians and Meshaal and the three stooges are doing now. As have all the other Arab countries and their leaders. The Egyptians are willing to fight to the last drop of 'Palestinian' blood too - when it suits them.

The 'Palestinians' are not a separate nation. They are from the same nomadic tribes as the Arabs throughout this region. They came to pre-State Palestine to improve their economic lot because the Jews were willing to hire them for decent wages. They left families behind in the Arab countries - nearly every 'Palestinian' still has second and third cousins in the Arab world. Since 1948, when the Arab countries failed in their efforts to drive the Jews out and the Jews formed a State, the Arab countries have held the 'Palestinians' hostage from generation to generation as a thorn in the side of the Jews and in a continuing effort to drive the Jews out of this land.

For those who have not seen it before, I strongly urge you to read this post that I wrote two and a half years ago. It may still be the most linked post I have ever had on this blog. Here's the bottom line of that post:

In an interview given by Zuhair Mohsen to the Dutch newspaper Trouw in March 1977, Mr. Mohsen explains the origin of the 'Palestinians':

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.
That's the truth.

I feel sorry for the 'Palestinians.' I really do. They have been abandoned to their fate by their cousins throughout the Arab world. But I don't feel sorry enough for them to commit suicide to keep their cousins happy. And I never will.

Iran is not going to shed its blood for the Palestinians. Nor will their Arab brethren. Its too bad Hamas leaders are blinded by their hatred of Israel to see they're useful idiots. That is - every one is perfectly happy to use them to serve their own interests but they have no real interest in the Palestinians' welfare. Hamas needs friends like Iran and the Arab World like they need enemies. They will never wake up and figure it out and that's the good news - for it is what keeps the prospect of a Palestinian reichlet on Israel's doorstep a mirage. And as you pointed out Carl, Israel will never commit suicide in order to educate them about the truth of the pawns they are and will always be. If Israel ever disappeared, odds are good that's the one thing about the Palestinians' situation that would never change.

Second, Alaska’s governor and people to settle them in Alaska rejected it,
Finally, British decided to buy land from Arabs....... and create Israel to settle European Jews in the Middle East. This is the hypocritical nature of the conflict

The 'Palestinians' are not the biblical Phillistines. The name 'Palestine' was a creation of the Roman empire after the Second Temple's destruction nearly 2000 years ago to dissuade the Jews of the idea that they will ever return.
