it's Too Late

"We Say to This West... By Allah, You Will Be defeated"




Khaled Mash'al: "We apologize to our Prophet Muhammad, but we say to him: Oh


Prophet of Allah, do not be saddened, your nation will be victorious.




"We say to this West, which does not act reasonably, and does not learn its


lessons: By Allah, you will be defeated. You will be defeated in Palestine,


and your defeat there has already begun. True, it is Israel that is being


defeated there, but when Israel is defeated, its path is defeated, those who


call to support it are defeated, and the cowards who hide behind it and


support it are defeated. Israel will be defeated, and so will whoever


supported or supports it.




"America will be defeated in Iraq. Wherever the [Islamic] nation is


targeted, its enemies will be defeated, Allah willing. The nation of


Muhammad is gaining victory in Palestine. The nation of Muhammad is gaining


victory in Iraq, and it will be victorious in all Arab and Muslim lands.


'Their multitudes will be defeated and turn their backs [and flee].' These


fools will be defeated, the wheel of time will turn, and times of victory


and glory will be upon our nation, and the West will be full of remorse,


when it is too late.




"They think that history has ended with them. They do not know that the law


of Allah cannot be changed or replaced. 'You shall not find a substitute for


the law of Allah. You shall not find any change to the law of Allah.' Today,


the Arab and Islamic nation is rising and awakening, and it will reach its


peak, Allah willing. It will be victorious. It will link the present to the


past. It will open up the horizons of the future. It will regain the


leadership of the world. Allah willing, the day is not far off.




"Don't you see that every act of deceit they contrive is being turned


against them by Allah? Don't you see that they make every effort to defeat


us militarily, but fail to do so? Israel and the occupation forces in Iraq


are supplied with the entire Western military arsenal, yet they fail and are






"Don't you see that they believe they are capable of using democracy to


deceive the people, but then democracy is turned against them? Don't you see


that they are spending their money in efforts to block the way of Allah, to


thwart Hamas, to defeat it, and to help those whom they want, but that [this


plot] is turned against them? They are not acting reasonably.




"They do not understand the Arab or Muslim mentality, which rejects the


foreigner. Our Arab forefathers, before the advent of Islam, rejected the


aggressors and the foreigners.








"I bring good tidings to our beloved Prophet Muhammad: Allah's promise and


the Prophet's prophecy of our victory in Palestine over the Jews and over


the oppressive Zionists has begun to come true."






"I Say to Europe: Hurry Up and Apologize"




Mash'al: "I say to the [European countries]: Hurry up and apologize to our


nation, because if you do not, you will regret it. This is because our


nation is progressing and is victorious. Do not leave a black mark in the


collective memory of the nation, because our nation will not forgive you.




"Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a


figment of the imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will lead the world,


Allah willing. Apologize today, before remorse will do you no good. Our


nation is moving forwards, and it is in your interest to respect a


victorious nation.








"Our nation will be victorious. When it reaches the leadership of the world,


and controls its own decisions, then it will prevent this overt interference


[in our affairs], and its pillaging of natural resources, and will prevent


these recurring offenses against our land, against our nation, and against


our holy places - then you will regret it.




"The Western countries must stop the fools. Are these reasonable people?


They allow offenses against Allah and the prophets. They are offending not


only Muhammad, but all the prophets. But when an historian among them talks


about the Holocaust, it is the sin of all sins. If anybody criticizes the


Jews, this constitutes anti-Semitism. By law, they hold their own people


accountable [for that]. The West, which waved the slogans of liberty after


the French Revolution, three centuries ago, does not respect its own


principles or slogans today. It violates them."






"You Have No Way of Overcoming Us"




Mash'al: "This victory, which was clearly evident in the elections, conveys


a message to Israel, to America, and to all the oppressors around the world:


You have no way of overcoming us. If you want war, we are ready. If you want


democracy, we are ready. Whatever you want - we are ready. You will not


defeat us. The time of defeat is over. Defeat within six days, defeat within


hours, the defeat of armies - all this is over.




"Today, you are fighting the army of Allah. You are fighting against peoples


for whom death for the sake of Allah, and for the sake of honor and glory,


is preferable to life. You are fighting a nation that does not tire, even


after 1,000 years of fighting. Today, you are facing peoples filled with


faith, with the love of Allah, with the love of Allah's Prophet, with


bravery, glory, and pride - a nation that knows its way, a nation that knows


what it is, a nation that respects itself. How can you possibly defeat us?




"There is a chasm between you and our defeat. You will be the ones to be


defeated, Allah willing. The time of defeat is gone, and the day of victory


has come, Allah willing. Wherever you turn, you will fail."




Crowd: "Death to Israel. Death to Israel. Death to America."






"Before Israel Dies, it Must Be Humiliated and Degraded"




Mash'al: "Before Israel dies, it must be humiliated and degraded. Allah


willing, before they die, they will experience humiliation and degradation


every day. America will be of no avail to them. Their generals will be of no


avail to them. The last of their generals has been forgotten. Allah has made


him disappear. He's over. Gone is that Sharon behind whose back they would


hide and find shelter, and with whom they would feel relatively secure.


Today they have frail leaders, who don't even know where our Lord placed






"Allah willing, we will make them lose their eyesight, we will make them


lose their brains.








"Their weapons will be of no avail to them. Their nuclear weapons will be of


no use to them. They thought that they had hegemony over the region with


their nuclear weapons, but suddenly Pakistan popped up with Islamic nuclear


weapons, and they are afraid of Iran and several Arab countries have some


chemical weapons.




"Israel has begun to sense that its superiority has come to an end. Its


army, which has superior conventional weapons - the air force, the armored


corps, and the missiles - there are no longer wars in which these are used.




"The Arabs have said: We don't want [conventional] wars, thank you very


much. Leave the war to the peoples. Today, the Israeli weapons are of no use


against the peoples. We have imposed a new equation in the war. In this


equation, our tools are stronger. That is why we will defeat them, Allah










"If you fight them, they will turn their backs on you, and will not be


victorious." But the problem is that we need to fight them first. If we


sleep at home, how are we to beat them?! 'If you fight them...' - that is a


divine promise... 'If' - It is conditional: 'If you fight them, they will


turn their backs on you and will not be victorious.' And indeed, when we


began to fight, and we armed ourselves with a will to fight, we defeated










"That is why Allah akbar [Allah is greater]. We say that every day - Allah


akbar. Yes, Allah is greater than America. Allah is greater than the


oppressors. Allah is greater than the superpowers. Allah is greater than the


tyranny of the oppressing world, and Allah is greater than Israel. Since


Allah is greater, and He supports us, we will be victorious."






"I Know That All Arab Leaders... Want Palestine to Be Liberated"




Mash'al:"By Allah, I know that all Arab leaders - and I have met many of


them - deep inside want the resistance in Palestine to be victorious, and


want Palestine to be liberated. Perhaps the need for flattery and for


diplomacy, and the American hegemony, force other things on them, but in


their hearts they are happy when we are victorious.








"If, prior to the Hamas victory, there were several military wings, each


with a few hundred or a few thousand fighters, under the rule of Hamas - if


you continue to besiege us, to starve our people, to ignore our rights, and


if you continue your occupation, your aggression, and your assassinations -


we, the Hamas, will declare a general call to arms. We will place the entire


Palestinian people at the disposal of the resistance and its weapons."




Crowd: "Allah akbar, Allah be praised. Allah akbar, Allah be praised. Allah


akbar, Allah be praised. Allah akbar, Allah be praised. Allah akbar, Allah


be praised. Allah akbar, Allah be praised."




Mash'al: "Be careful not to drive our people into a corner - Occupation,


aggression, assassinations, 9,000 male and female prisoners, preventing aid,


imposing a siege, causing starvation - and on top of all this, you don't


want to recognize democracy and its results."






"Hamas has a Vision… Hamas Can Manage the Political Battle, Just Like it


Managed the Military Battle"




Mash'al: "The German [Chancellor Angela] Merkel pops up and says: Democracy


and success in the elections are not sufficient for Hamas to gain


legitimacy. To hell with you all. How are we supposed to gain legitimacy?


When you said we had the legitimacy of resistance, you called it terrorism.


Now, we say we have the legitimacy of democracy, but you deny it. In that


case, you yourself are not legitimate, because you emerged through


democracy. This is the logic of a frail and defeatist person.




"Brothers and sister, there is confusion in the Western world, and in the


American administration. Allah has come to them from where they did not


expect him. That is the grace of Allah. That is why we do not fear them. We


do not fear their threats.




"Today they give us an ultimatum: Recognize Israel. Wonderful! The murderer


is not required by anyone to recognize the rights of his victim, but the


victim is required to recognize the rights of his murderer, and to sing his










"Hamas has a vision. Hamas has a plan. Hamas can manage the political


battle, just like it managed the military battle, but in a different


language, with different tools, and recognizing Israel is not one of them.


Nor is giving up the rights, giving up the right to resistance, and nor is


giving up the weapons of the resistance.




"Nevertheless, we want to deal with politics, but there is a difference


between the politics of the weak and defeatists, which we will constantly


repeat - the kind of politics that does not impress the enemy and so it does


nothing - because, like in the marketplace, products praised too much become


cheap. If we continue to praise our products, constantly saying: 'We love


peace,' 'We have given up the option of war,' 'Peace is our strategic


option,' 'For God's sake, Israel, give us a few scraps of land' - By Allah,


we will be degraded in the eyes of our enemies."






"We Will Conduct our Politics in the Language of Victory"




Mash'al: "We will conduct our politics in the language of victory. We will


conduct our policy in a confident language. We will conduct our politics in


the language of those who are steadfast and sure of themselves. Besides, by


Allah, after the people has elected us, and has bestowed upon us all this


power, we will disrespect its rights?








"The people has given us a deposit, and has empowered us to liberate its


land, to restore Jerusalem and its holy places. It has empowered us to


release 9,000 male and female prisoners. It has empowered us to stop the


aggression, to liberate the land, and to restore its rights. The people has


empowered us to bring back 5.5 million Palestinian refugees and displaced


people to their homeland. After all this, Hamas - in order to please America


and the European Union, and in order for the pressure on us to stop, and in


order for their highnesses to allow us to establish a government... We are


not trying to please them."






"It is in Your Interests to Change Your Relations and Policies Regarding the


Arab and Islamic Nation and the Palestinian Cause"




Mash'al: "I say to America, Europe, and the West: It is in your interests to


change your relations and policies regarding the Arab and Islamic nation and


the Palestinian cause. Because we are winning, it is in your interests to


deal with the victors, not the losers.




"Israel will be defeated and will be of no use to you. The Arabs will be


victorious. The Muslims will be victorious. Palestine will be victorious.


Change your policy soon, if you want to protect your interests, and maintain


healthy relations with the East."
