Dubai - Ahmadinejad: Gaza Conflict Shows Israel Must "Bow" To Palestinian Rights

Dubai - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the head of the Hamas government in Gaza on Saturday that eight days of cross-border fighting showed that Israel had no choice but to “bow” to Palestinian rights, according to Iran’s IRNA news agency.

The Iranian-backed Hamas has basked in what it called a victory against Israel after an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Thursday ended the conflict in which 163 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed.

IRNA said Ahmadinejad, in the rare telephone call with Ismail Haniyeh, praised the Palestinian “resistance and perseverance”.

“Zionists have reached the dead point and have no other alternative but officially recognising and bowing to the absolute right of the Palestinian nation,” IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying, referring to Israel.

The agency’s English website did not elaborate but Ahmadinejad has previously said that Israel was an alien body in the Middle East.

Israel’s arch-foe Iran, which has an alliance with Hamas, had referred to Israeli strikes as “organised terrorism”. The exiled leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, on Wednesday thanked Shi’ite Iran for what he described as arms and funding.

In September, Ahmadinejad told the U.N. General Assembly in New York that Israel has no roots in the Middle East and would be “eliminated”, ignoring a U.N. warning to avoid incendiary comments.

Hamas’s founding charter also calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.

Palestinian 'rights' is more like saying a squatter has his place in your own home. Give me 200 years and I think we will see where the squatter goes and leaves our home.

163 to 6 is a victory? I think these folks have been hitting the hash pipe again!

It looks like your syntax, spelling and even rant has been "nuked" itself. Try not to cross your eyes when you are thinking of something as horrifying as murdering many people to acheive the diplomatic needs of humanity. Its not a simple matter and if it does come down to a nuclear strike on Iran, may Hashem guide the innocent. Baruch Hashem.

as long as you are talking about hashem there, the jewish law states clearly, if someone is coming to kill you kill him first. Iran leadership made it clear many times they intend to wipe israel off the map, maybe in your book thats ok, but in the book of sane non liberal people, we understand that iran will make good on that promise if allowed
