The Palestinians have reported that recent talks between the
Palestinian Authority and the Hamas have led to a strengthening of
cooperation. Indeed numerous terrorist attacks have been executed by
joint Hamas - PA terror teams. Given the increased PA cooperation,
the political messages of the Hamas take on greater significance. The
following two items now appear on the Hamas website. The first
describes the killing of Jews as the way to Islamic heaven and the
second deals with the religious question as to whether a woman
terrorist may dress without the traditional Islamic garb when the
Islamic garb hinders her ability to commit terror acts.
1. A picture on the “art page” carries the title: "We shall knock on
heaven´s doors with the skulls of Jews".
Below these words, an ax is crashing down on the words "the Jews". On
the ax are the words “Al-Kassam" the name of the Hamas terrorist
unit. The face is of arch terrorist Immad Akkel, who planned and
executed more than 13 terrorist attacks.

2. Religious law question in the "Religious Law Corner"
"Must the female suicide seeker [Istishehadiya -Palestinian term for
suicide bomber] about to execute an operation, dress in accordance
with the Sharia [Moslem religious law], knowing that if the operation
is to be in an Israeli area... the woman will be exposed?”
Answer: “The question of the hijab [woman´s head-covering] is not
open to discussion. This is a commandment and obligation a Jihad
warrior may not forgo. A second point is that in our streets and
cities, occupied by the Jews [all of Israel is
considered ‘occupied’], our sisters may walk about dressed in their
Shar´i clothes, even with veils on their faces and wearing gloves.
The third point, and it is very significant, is that our sisters, the
Jihad warriors, can deceive the Jews by wearing clothes of the type
worn by the so-called religious Jewish women which is acceptable
under the Sharia. Onward the Shahid [Death for Allah]
