July, 1948 - The Gap in Jihad

In light of the recent talk about "truces" from various terror groups, which usually don't last beyond the next news cycle, the following article is instructive - especially the last paragraph.

The words could have been written today by the vast majority of Arabs - even the most "moderate" will say frankly that Israel's existence is just a temporary blip on the road to Muslim domination. Only the "hardliners" will speak these words where Western ears can hear them, however. (This is one of the reasons why the whole Iranian president kerfuffle was so funny - most "moderate" Arab leaders agree with him; his crime was just saying his thoughts out loud.)
