The missing BBC reporter Alan Johnston is alive, safe and could be freed soon, a Palestinian government spokesman and member of Hamas has said.Taken from an article at BBC News regarding Alan Johnston
Speaking at the Hay literary festival in Wales, Ghazi Hamad said he was personally involved in trying to free Mr Johnston
And here's a quick summation of the Hamas Charter
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
"After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."
I'd been keen to know how Ghazi Hamad was granted permission to get in to the UK seeing as Hamas is a listed terrorist organisation under EU law. Not to mention the insanity of The Guardian to invite Hamas members to speak at their literary festival. The intelligentsia is officially in la la land.
