The only true and lasting peace will follow victory.

: "Hamas terrorists vowed yesterday to drive Israel out of the West Bank and Jerusalem.
'Gaza is not Palestine,' a masked spokesman for Hamas' armed wing declared, making it clear the Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip will not satisfy the fanatical terrorist group.
'As for Jerusalem and the West Bank, we will seek to liberate them by resistance just as the Gaza Strip was liberated,' said the spokesman, surrounded by gunmen with rocket launchers.
But he did not say Hamas planned to abandon its truce, set to last until the end of the year.
Militants have agreed to respect the cease-fire at the behest of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who wants to ensure a quiet withdrawal of the Gaza settlers.
The appearance of the masked Hamas gunmen — who briefly took over Gaza City's central square — was a direct challenge to Abbas, who has appealed to militants not to flaunt their weapons in public.
It also underscored the reluctance of Abbas' police to confront gunmen."
