Merry Christmas! Hamas Calls For Third Infitada and Resumption of Suicide Bombings
Christmas in Palestine.
They sure know how to celebrate the holidays. If they’re not chucking rocks, they’re calling for murder.

A senior Hamas official called today for third infitada and resumption of suicide bombings in Israel.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
A senior Hamas leader Tuesday called for a third intifada and the resumption of suicide bombings against Israel.
Ahmed Halabiyeh, director of the Jerusalem Department in Hamas, said that armed Palestinian groups, including Hamas, should initiate a confrontation with Israel over its plans to build new houses in Jerusalem and its suburbs.
The Palestinians, he added, should resort to various methods of resistance, first and foremost “martyrdom operations in the heart of Israel.”
Abu Halabiyeh urged Palestinians to “ignite a third intifada to save the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem.”
He told reporters in Gaza City that the “enemy was waging a fierce onslaught on Jerusalem and accelerating plans to Judaize the city geographically and demographically.”
