But Mudayris also let slip some telling words about Palestinian strategy. Referring to “the struggle,” Mudayris made it clear that any political solution involving Israel would be temporary — a pause in jihad against the infidels:
[W]e must assess every phase of our legitimate struggle. We must also assess every means we use for jihad and struggle against our enemies. If the phase demands an offensive means, then we should use it, and if it demands a political means, then we should use it also.
The point is clear — whether “peace” is achieved with Israel or not, it won’t change the basic thrust of Palestinian policy — death to the Jews and the destruction of Israel.
In a profile of Mudayris, Steven Stalinsky, executive director of MEMRI wrote in FPM back in 2005 that the radical TV cleric’s removal meant little as far as ending Palestinian incitement against Israel. Muzzling Mudayris was cosmetic in nature, done at the time to curry favor with the White House in advance of a visit by PA chairman Abu Mazen (aka Mahmoud Abbas). It represented no change in the basic attitude of the PA toward the idea of spreading lies and igniting bloodlust against Israel and the Jews through vicious propaganda at all levels of society. Instead, taking Mudayris off the television was just one more move by the Palestinians to lull the West to sleep while continuing to incite their people in their rage against the Jewish state.
