The whole of this country is ours. It belongs absolutely to all of
us and it cannot be given over to others ... It is the inheritance
of our father Abraham, "To thy seed will I give this land" (Exodus
Therefore there can once and for all be no possible doubt that
there are no Arab territories and Arab lands here, only Jewish
lands, the eternal inheritance of our forefathers, on which others
came and built without our permission or presence. And we never
left or were separated from the inheritance of our forefathers, we
everlastingly continued ... to protest against their cruel and
artificial control of the land. So we are commanded to liberate our
lands and never to relinquish them.
This whole land, according to all the Biblical borders, belongs to
and comes under the rule of the people of Israel.
An extract from the writings of Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook, the
spiritual father of Gush Emunim, in his book Lenetivot Yisrael (For
the Paths of Israel) written in the summer of 1967. This message
became the platform of Gush Emunim.
Despite all the obstacles created by those who are pro-Zionism, the
Day of Judgment will come, and Moslems will fight the Jews and kill
them. Then, the Jews will try to hide behind the rocks and the
trees, but the rocks and the trees will cry out: "0 Moslem, there
is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."
The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf (Holy Possession),
consecrated in the name of the future Moslem generations until
Judgment Day. Accordingly, no one has the right to give away any
part of Palestine.
The so called peace initiatives contradict the beliefs of the
Islamic Resistance Movement, because giving away any part of
Palestine is the equivalent of giving away part of the faith.
