The History of Israel & 3 Faiths
Who ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon went into labor, she brought forth her children. “Would I let the baby break through and not be born?” asks Adonai. “Would I, who cause the birth, shut the womb?” asks your God. Isaiah 66:8-9 Complete Jewish Bible

Saddam Hussein 4/4/03 “Long live Iraq. Long live Palestine" Hamas Leader Khaled Mash’al 3/06 “The liberation [of Palestine] will come with the help of Allah, until it is attained by the last soldier, woman, and child, despite resistance by Israel and the United States….

Iranian President Ahmadinejad “Wipe Israel off the map.“ "Iran believes that whoever is for humanity should also be for eradicating the Zionist regime as symbol of suppression and discrimination," Ahmadinejad on Monday said that Iranians and Muslim nations worldwide should hold Qods rallies and show their willingness to dispose of this "infectious tumor and this regime full of rascality."

Letter to the American People allegedly written by Osama bin Laden – 12/02 "The creation and continuation of Israel is one of the greatest crimes, and you [the Americans] are the leaders of its criminals.There is no need to explain and prove the degree of American support for Israel.

Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al With regards to these nine accusations that you are putting us on trial for; to us, they are not accusations. To us they are badges of honor, which we carry with pride. Many thanks to God, for his kind gesture, and choosing us to perform the act of Jihad for his cause and to defend Islam and Muslims. Therefore, killing you and fighting you, destroying you and terrorizing you, responding back to your attacks, are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion. These actions are our offerings to God.
Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al You have violated the law of war by supporting the Israeli occupation of Arab land in Palestine and Lebanon, and for displacing five million Palestinians outside their land. You have supported the oppressor over the oppressed and the butcher over the victim.
Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et al We do not possess your military might, nor your nuclear weapons. Nevertheless, we fight you with the almighty God. So, if our act of Jihad and our fighting with you caused fear and terror, then many thanks to God, because it is him that has thrown fear into your hearts, which resulted in your infidelity, paganism, and your statement that God had a son and your trinity beliefs. So, our religion is a religion of fear and terror to the enemies of God: the Jews, Christians, and pagans. With God's willing, we are terrorists to the bone. So, many thanks to God.
Radicalism usually prospers in the gap between rising expectations and declining opportunities. This is especially true where the population is young, idle, and bored; where the art is impoverished; where entertainment – movies, theater, music – is policed or absent altogether; and where young men are set apart from the consoling and socializing presence of women. Anger, resentment, and humiliation spurred young Arabs to search for dramatic remedies The Looming Tower Lawrence Wright 2006

Syrian Schoolbooks – 6/02 Eighth-graders are taught that, "It is known that the Jews of today do not have any connection to Palestine…” Palestinian Schoolbooks – 6/02 The Palestinians, the books claim, have first rights to the country. The "Arab Canaanites" were here before the Jews, therefore the Zionistic claim of rights to the land by virtue of forefathers are a lie. Zionism is described as a movement of which the seizing of land is foremost among its tenets.
