Perhaps someone can forward this to Judge Collyer, who demanded to know from our lawyer Robert Muise what jihad had to do with the war on Israel during the prohibition hearing on our anti-jihad ads.
'Holy Jihad’ is the only way to deal with Israel, says Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood chief Times of Israel

Egypt’s foremost Muslim Brotherhood official called on the Arab world Thursday to replace negotiations with Israel with “holy Jihad,” claiming that if Jews are allowed to pray on the Temple Mount they will destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and supplant it with the third temple.
Mohammed Badie, Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, declared in a public message published by Egyptian daily Al-Ahram that “the Zionists only understand force,” and that Arabs cannot hope to achieve justice from the Jews “through the corridors of the United Nations or through negotiations.”
‘Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,’ Badie continued. ‘This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance’
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate, but he resigned all official positions in the movement upon taking office. He has said that his government would uphold the Camp David peace accords with Israel, and recently named a new ambassador to Israel.
“The time has come for the Islamic nation to unite around one man for the sake of Jerusalem and Palestine,” Badie said. “The Jews have dominated the land, spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profaned holy places, including their own.”
“Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,” Badie continued. “This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance. The day they realize we will march this path and raise the banner of Jihad for the sake of God, is the day they will relent and stop their tyranny.”
Badie, 69, has headed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2010, and before that served on its governing council for more than a decade. Trained in veterinary medicine and an academic by profession, he served time in jail for political activity as a young man but was pardoned by president Anwar Sadat.
Advisor To Hamas Government In Gaza: Israel Must Disappear
Advisor To Hamas Government In Gaza: Israel Must Disappear
In an October 8, 2012 article in the Hamas newspaper Al-Risala, Kana'an 'Obeid, an advisor to the Hamas government in Gaza, urged this movement to refrain from emulating the PLO in making political concessions and adopting pragmatist policies. Instead, he called upon Hamas to declare that it was created to eliminate the state of Israel.
The following are excerpts from the article:
"The deterioration of the Palestinian cause occurred in a series of steps. Initially, there were slogans such as 'eliminating Israel' or 'bon appétit, oh fish in the sea!', and the PLO slogan, 'we will not relinquish one single grain of sand.' Then there was the consent to [UN Security Council] Resolution 242, the recognition of Israel, and the freezing of the caduque PLO Charter. After that, Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud 'Abbas] declared that Israel is here to stay..."
Former PA Minister Hassan Asfour Boasts: Many Israelis Killed Since PA Established
Following are excerpts from an interview with former PA minister Hassan Asfour, which aired on Mayadeen TV on September 13, 2012.
Hassan Asfour: "The Palestinian entity embodied by the PA constitutes an historic achievement for the Palestinian people.
"In addition, since the establishment of the Palestinian National Authority, the Palestinian struggle has taken on a new dimension. Suffice to mention that the number of Israelis killed from the establishment of the PA until the killing of the leader Yasser Arafat was many times greater than in the previous period."
Hamas MP Marwan Abu Ras: The Jews Are Behind Every Catastrophe On Earth
Following are excerpts from an interview with Hamas MP Marwan Abu Ras, member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on September 12, 2012.
Marwan Abu Ras: "The Jews are behind each and every catastrophe on the face of the Earth. This is not open to debate. This is not a temporal thing, but goes back to days of yore. They concocted so many conspiracies and betrayed rulers and nations so many times that the people harbor hatred towards them."
"Hezbollah takes responsibility for downed drone, confirms it was manufactured by Iran
Netanyahu fingers Lebanese group, says Israel ‘determined to defend its land, air, and maritime borders’ from future incursions" Times of Israel

The leader of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah on Thursday claimed responsibility for launching a drone aircraft that was shot down over Israel earlier this week, saying the UAV had been assembled by Hezbollah men using parts provided by Iran. The rare admission by Hassan Nasrallah raises regional tensions at a sensitive time when the group’s backers, Syria and Iran, are under pressure.
Nasrallah said the drone was named the Ayoub, honoring both an Islamic prophet (of patience) and a “martyr” by the name of Hussein Ayoub.
Several hours earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed a finger at Hezbollah. ”We’re determined to defend our land, air, and maritime borders, just as when we foiled Hezbollah’s attempt to send a UAV into Israel,” Netanyahu said during a tour of the border with Egypt.
On Tuesday, Israeli Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad said the UAV’s incursion into Israeli airspace was a failed mission. Speaking to Israel Radio, Gilad, a top aide to Defense Minister Ehud Barak, said that the drone had failed to gather any intelligence or damage Israel’s air defense superiority.
The UAV was identified from a distance, and the IAF waited until it was flying over open space before it neutralized it, he added.
The UAV was shot down over the Yatir Forest in the northern Negev after it entered Israel from the skies over Gaza. Officials believe it was launched from Lebanon and flew south over the Mediterranean before turning inland over Gaza.
On Sunday, a former commander of Israel’s drone unit said that the foreign UAV couldn’t have filmed anything that wasn’t already available on Google Earth, despite claims to the contrary by Iran.
