By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)-- In the latest attempt to liberate Palestine by any means necessary, PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash suggested that any peace deal with Israel would only be temporary, according to Palestinian Media Watch.
During Ramadan services broadcast on Palestinian television, Habbash said PA officials were working on a means to an end comparable to the Prophet's Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, a 10-year-long truce negotiated by Mohammad with the Quraish Tribe. But only two years later, Mohammad broke it by a surprise attack that conquered an unsuspecting Mecca.
Habbash described Mohammed’s deceit as a model to be followed today, but according to Palestinian Media Watch, the Hudaybiyyah treaty has already served as the template for PLO negotiations with Israel.
"Since the signing of the Oslo Accords, there have been senior PA officials who have presented the peace process with Israel as a deceptive tactic ... which will weaken Israel through territorial compromise that will eventually lead to Israel's destruction."
In 1994, Yasir Arafat compared the Olso Accords to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah: "This agreement, I am not considering it more than the agreement which had been signed between our Prophet Mohammad and Quraish ..."
Seven years later, Faisal Husseini, PA Rep for Jerusalem Affairs, said the Oslo agreement, like any other agreement, was just a temporary step towards something bigger.
"We distinguish the strategic, long-term goals from the political staged goals, which we are compelled to temporarily accept due to international pressure ...," he said. "'From the river to the sea,' Palestine in its entirety is an Arab land, the land of the Arab nation."
However, from the Jordan to the Med also stands the nation of Israel, the ancestral homeland of the Jews whose God other peoples disregard at their own peril.
