Op 30 maart is de zogenaamde March to Jerusalem gepland, een initiatief van onder andere Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah en andere extremisten om via massale demonstraties naar de grenzen van Israel de aandacht te vestigen op het feit dat deze racistische entiteit nog steeds bestaat en het Arabische Jeruzalem, waar Joden nooit enige band mee hebben gehad, bezet houdt. Ook het feit dat Israel zo effectief optreedt tegen hun vrijheidsstrijders is hen natuurlijk een doorn in het oog, en dit wordt dan ook gehekeld als zijnde ‘zionistische agressie’.
Uit Nederland doet voor zover ik weet alleen haat predikster Gretta Duisenberg mee, maar tot mij stomme verbazing steunen gematigde lieden als Kathleen Ferrier en Jan Pronk het initiatief wel op facebook, alsook Paul Haenen en Francisco van Jole. Waarom zou je ook maar het kleinste beetje kritisch denkvermogen gebruiken als je ook klakkeloos alle Palestijnse propaganda kunt geloven?
Cafe Hillel bomber promotes Global March to J'lem
Hamas operative promotes march; protesters from countries surrounding Israel plan to converge on borders.
A senior Hamas terrorist, released to the Gaza Strip in the Gilad Schalit prisoner swap, traveled recently to South Africa to advance the Global March to Jerusalem, scheduled for later this month, as detailed in a paper published Friday by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.
Under the plan, protesters from Jordan, Egypt, Gaza, the West Bank, Syria and Lebanon will converge on Israel's borders on March 30. As reported earlier this week in The Jerusalem Post, the IDF is preparing for the planned marches and will distribute riot gear to units deployed along the borders.
According to the paper published by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, a quasi-government think tank, Dr. Abd al-Aziz Amru was brought to South Africa as the guest of two organizations - Al Quds Foundation of South Africa and the Muslim Judicial Council. Amru is a senior Hamas member who was serving seven life sentences for involvement in a suicide attack in 2003.
The paper claimed that the purpose of Amru's visit was to promote the Global March to Jerusalem and to raise awareness about the continued imprisonment of what he termed Palestinian "political prisoners" in Israeli prisons.
According to the center, the organizations that brought Amru to South Africa are known radical Islamic groups, one of which - the Muslim Judicial Council - is part of a larger group of Palestinian charities that was outlawed several years ago by Israel and the US.
Amru was sentenced to seven life sentences in prison for his involvement in dispatching the suicide bomber who blew up at Cafe Hillel in Jerusalem on September 9, 2003. Seven Israelis were killed in the attack. Among the dead were Dr. David Applebaum, director of the Shaare Zedek Hospital emergency room, and his daughter Nava, whose wedding was scheduled for the following day.
Earlier this week, the center published a report claiming that Iran was, directly and through its proxies, supporting the planned marches later this month.
"In our assessment, Iran has a number of objectives: to strengthen its regional influence by exploiting the sensitivity of the Arab-Muslim world to the issue of Jerusalem, to draw international attention away from itself, and to broaden and deepen the delegitimization campaign being waged against Israel by channeling it to Iran's own political needs," the report claimed.
