Wie oorlog zaait kan geen vrede oogsten

IMO Blog, 2006

Ziehier het matigende effect van het staakt het vuren op de Palestijnen: In een massademonstratie afgelopen vrijdag betuigden tienduizenden Palestijnen hun steun aan premier Ismail Haniyeh van de Hamas, en protesteerden tegen een eenheidsregering die niet door hem geleid zou worden. Haniyeh, momenteel in Iran tijdens zijn eerste buitenlandse reis, legde nog eens uit waar de Hamas voor staat:

"The world arrogance (U.S.) and Zionists ... want us to recognize the usurpation of the Palestinian lands and stop jihad and resistance and accept the agreements reached with the Zionist enemies in the past," Haniyeh told thousands prayer worshippers in a speech at Tehran University. "I'm insisting from this podium that these issues won't materialize. We will never recognize the usurper Zionist government and will continue our jihad-like movement until the liberation of Jerusalem...
The popular Palestinian government not only has not recognized the occupiers but also considers resistance the natural right of the Palestinian nation."


Parlementslid Mohammed Al Shihab schreef het volgende ter nagedachtenis aan een Palestijnse oma die de martelarendood verkoos boven de zorg voor haar kinderen en kleinkinderen:

"Imagine, together with me, what could happen in another few years, if millions of believers, men and women, decided to break through [their] fears and lunge forward to resistance, jihad, and martyrdom in Palestine - just like 'the mother of the self-sacrificing women', Umm Muhammad. What would be the fate of the occupying invaders? They are only thieves and robbers, and they have no history, culture, or roots in this land.
The best decision they could make would be to pack their suitcases and disappear from our lives."

Ik hoop dat de westerse media mee hebben geluisterd en gelezen. Hoe dit te rijmen is met het staakt het vuren, en het bredere doel om vredesonderhandelingen te herstarten, is mij een raadsel. In dit licht wekken de volgende waarnemingen van de IsraŽlische militaire inlichtingendienst weinig verbazing:

If the cease-fire falls apart, the IDF believes it will be headed toward a major conflict in Gaza. Despite the cease-fire, the Palestinians are smuggling high-grade explosives and advanced weaponry into the Strip.
Hamas has set up a 10,000-strong military, consisting of four brigades corresponding to four sections of the Gaza Strip. This army is believed to be armed with advanced anti-tank missiles, Grad-type Katyusha rockets and anti-aircraft missiles, possibly shoulder-fired, Soviet-made SA-7s.
MI's assumption is that the cease-fire will last another few weeks at most.
The major problem is that unlike the cease-fire before the unilateral disengagement, this time the Palestinians do not have an incentive to enforce it.

Hamas heeft geld voor een dergelijke milities en geavanceerde wapens ondanks het stopzetten van de officiŽle hulpgelden van de EU en de VS aan de Palestijnse Autoriteit. Sterker nog, de Palestijnen hebben dit jaar meer geld ontvangen dan in voorgaande jaren, zowel van Arabische staten zoals Iran en Qatar, als van de EU.

Despite a boycott of the Hamas-led Palestinian government, the European Union has found ways to increase its total aid to the Palestinian people, most recently helping support thousands of needy families, an EU official said Tuesday.
The EU said its contribution to the Palestinians has increased by 27% from last year, to EUR651 million, though the EU, U.S. and Israel have banned direct aid to the Palestinian government.

Volgens het Internationaal Monetair Fonds heeft de Palestijnse regering van april tot september dit jaar meer buitenlandse hulp ontvangen ($420m) dan over dezelfde periode in 2005 ($230m), toen Fatah nog aan de macht was. Ook hebben Hamas functionarissen de afgelopen acht maanden in totaal meer dan $66m de Gazastrook in gesmokkeld via de Rafah grensovergang met Egypte.
Het is dus een sprookje dat de internationale 'boycot' van de Palestijnse Autoriteit de Palestijnen laat bloeden voor hun vrije politieke keuze. Uiteraard zou het beter zijn als de PA dit geld in zijn geheel zou gebruiken ten gunste van de bevolking in plaats van voor de opbouw van 10.000 man sterke milities en Katjoesja raketten, maar dat is de keuze van de soevereine Palestijnse regering.

Het schijnt bij sommige Palestijnen moeilijk door te dringen dat bepaalde daden bepaalde consequenties hebben. Openlijke oproepen tot geweld door de premier ondermijnen het staakt het vuren. Kassams en Katjoesja's op IsraŽlische steden betekenen hernieuwde IsraŽlische operaties in de Gazastrook. Oproepen om de hoofdstad van een soevereine staat aan te vallen zal door deze staat niet met instemming worden ontvangen, en niet leiden tot meer concessies. Het zal de hardliners versterken.

Toch blijft men zichzelf als machteloos en passief slachtoffer zien, vertrapt door IsraŽl en vergeten door de internationale gemeenschap. Het vreemde is, dat niet alleen de Palestijnen hun situatie zo beschouwen, maar ook een groot aantal mensen in de VS en Europa. Geen volk kan op zoveel steun en begrip rekenen als de Palestijnen; geen land wordt zo veelvuldig veroordeeld en bekritiseerd als IsraŽl. En toch menen de Palestijnen dat zij worden achtergesteld en vergeten. Misschien moeten we eens ophouden met het slachtofferschap van de Palestijnen te bevestigen en ze behandelen als een volwassen volk, dat verantwoordelijk is voor haar daden.

Thousands attend Gaza rally calling for Haniyeh to remain PM
http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/798670.html

By Haaretz Service and News Agencies


Tens of thousands of Hamas supporters rallied in Gaza on Friday, demanding that Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas head any Palestinian unity government, despite a deal for him to step aside as a means of restoring Western aid.

The public show of support for Haniyeh, a senior Hamas leader, puts pressure on the ruling militant movement to retain him as their candidate to lead a possible new cabinet.

That would further complicate unity government talks that moderate Palestinaian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the rival Fatah faction has said are at a dead end.

"We want you [Haniyeh] to be the prime minister. We will not abandon your leadership of the cabinet," Ismail Rudwan, a Hamas spokesman, told the rally held in front of the Legislative Council in Gaza City.

"We demand the leadership of Hamas retain... Ismail Haniyeh as head of the government and head any coming government."

Earlier Friday, during a visit to Iran Haniyeh vowed that his Hamas-led government will never recognize Israel and will continue to fight for the liberation of Jerusalem.

"The world arrogance (U.S.) and Zionists ... want us to recognize the usurpation of the Palestinian lands and stop jihad and resistance and accept the agreements reached with the Zionist enemies in the past," Haniyeh told thousands prayer worshippers in a speech at Tehran University.

"I'm insisting from this podium that these issues won't materialize. We will never recognize the usurper Zionist government and will continue our jihad-like movement until the liberation of Jerusalem," he said.

Haniyeh arrived in Tehran on Thursday for talks with Iranian leaders, including hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state-run media reported. This is Haniyeh's first tour abroad since Hamas took power in March.

Haniyeh praised the Iranians during his visit for the aid it has given the Palestinians.

"They [Israelis] assume the Palestinian nation is alone. This is an illusion. ... We have a strategic depth in the Islamic Republic of Iran. This country [Iran] is our powerful, dynamic and stable depth," he said.

Iran has provided the Hamas-led Palestinian government with $120 million this year despite a U.S.-led international financial boycott of the Palestinian government. The financial aid has boosted Iran's influence among Palestinians.

The Palestinian prime minister will also meet with supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and former president Hashemi Rafsanjani, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported. He will also deliver a speech to students at Tehran University during his visit.

Iran has provided the Hamas-led Palestinian government with $120 million this year, increasing its aid to the militant group and boosting its influence among Palestinians amid an international economic boycott of the Palestinian Authority.

Muslims and independence-seeking nations support the Palestinians because they have adopted the correct position towards the occupiers," Iranian First Vice President Parviz Davoudi told Haniyeh at the start of his four-day visit to Iran.

"Iran is ready to offer its valuable achievements and experiences in different fields to the Palestinian nation," the official IRNA news agency quoted Davoudi as saying.

Iran's support for the Palestinians has grown more vocal since Ahmadinejad came to power in August 2005. The former Revolutionary Guardsman has called the Israeli state a "tumor" which must be "wiped off the map".

Haniyeh, whose tour was also to include Syria, thanked Iran for its support and said Palestinian resistance of Israel would continue. "The popular Palestinian government not only has not recognized the occupiers but also considers resistance the natural right of the Palestinian nation."

Haniyeh will meet Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Ahmadinejad and deliver a speech to students at Tehran University during his visit, IRNA said.

The "Quartet" of Middle East mediators - the United States, the European Union, the United Nations, and Russia - is pressing Hamas to recognize Israel, renounce violence, and accept previous agreements signed between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
