Israel National News quotes Ehud Olmert:
“Is it the spirit of Islam to kill innocent children?1 To shoot missiles at nurseries and civilians? I do not think that this is the spirit of Islam2. Hamas, which does this against the spirit of Islam3 is the main reason for your suffering and for all of our suffering.”
“I am saying for the last time, stop this. You, the residents of Gaza, can stop this.” “Hamas is the enemy of the people, not just in Israel but in Gaza as well. We do not want to fight the Palestinian people, but we will not allow Hamas to attack our children.”4
- Only Muslim children are innocent. The children of Kuffar are "from them" . Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4321:
It is reported on the authority of Sa'b b. Jaththama that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him), when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said: They are from them.
...The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used not to kill the children, so thou shouldst not kill them unless you could know what Khadir had known about the child he killed, or you could distinguish between a child who would grow up to he a believer (and a child who would grow up to be a non-believer), so that you killed the (prospective) non-believer and left the (prospective) believer aside. [Sahih Muslim 19.4457] The proscription is economic, not moral. Reliance of the Traveller, O9.13
When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately annulled.
- The spirit of Islam? Allah commands Muslims to conquer the world so that only Allah is worshiped and Jews & Christians are subjugated and pay extortion. They can not obtain admission to Paradise until they hunt down and kill the last Jew.
- Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief. [Hamas Charter Art. 8]
- So attacking children is the evil element that makes Jihad objectionable? There would be no objection if only adults were killed?
There is a war on; genocidal & policidal reconquest of Israel and all Olmert can complain about is killing and traumatizing children.
The fatal facts of this perpetual 'conflict' are explained in Another Call to Feed Israel to the Alligators, the Prime Minister should read it.
