Islamic Jihad, as radical as ever

There is an interview with the Islamic Jihad spokesman in Gaza in Palestine Today. Here are some excerpts:

We in the Al-Quds Brigades reject [any thought about a Palestinian Arab state in the 1967 borders next to Israel], and confirm that Palestine has well known names and borders, from the sea to the river by God's orders.

As far as Jerusalem and all the occupied Palestinian cities: what was taken by force will be restored only by force.

We also need to rearrange our ranks and take advantage of our mistakes to be ready to face any new Zionist crap.

What is happening today to stop the martyrdom operations, but there is a particular tactic is being studied by Al-Quds Brigades, and perhaps that the barriers and the apartheid wall and security coordination between the power of Oslo West Territories and the Zionist intelligence services, all of which had prevented the implementation of dozens of suicide bombings, particularly in the last war.

What is happening today to where we have stopped the martyrdom operations, but this is a particular tactic is being studied by Al-Quds Brigades. Perhaps the barriers and the apartheid wall and security coordination between the power of Oslo West Territories [PA] and the Zionist intelligence services, all of which had prevented the implementation of dozens of suicide bombings, particularly in the last war.

We emphasize that the Al-Quds Brigades suicide bombers can enter into the heart of the Zionist entity. It is difficult but not impossible to send suicide bombers and car bombs everywhere in our territory. There are soldiers at the disposal of the House the political and military leadership, and it depends on what is happening on the ground of the violations, as required by the Palestinian interest.

With God's grace our technical and manufacturing division is developing missile capabilities. If [we desire,] the lives of members of Zionist settlements - all of them - will be hell, God willing.
Besides the fact that PIJ will never moderate and can veto any agreements made by any other Palestinian Arab party, I once again marvel at Palestinian Arabs' grasp of geography.

Before 1920 or so, Palestine was considered to be on both sides of the Jordan. The "river to the sea" mantra has nothing to do with restoring any fantasy of an ancient land called Palestine and everything to do with destroying Israel.

At least Islamic Jihad is honest about it.
