The following are excerpts from a symposium of students at Universite Libanaise, hosted by Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV and broadcast on November 29, 2005. The symposium marked the anniversary of November 29, 1947, the day the U.N. General Assembly passed the Partition Plan which is marked annually in the Arab world with the ceremonies of solidarity with Palestinians. Al-Manar’s symposium was devoted to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and participants included Shafiq Al-Hut, a former PLO representative in Lebanon, and Palestinian, Lebanese and Syrian students.

It should be noted that Universite Libanaise(1) is Lebanon’s only government-run university, and the country’s largest.(2)

Mediator: “The Arab regimes have all accepted the establishing of a Palestinian state on the territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. In other words, the 1967 borders only. They believe that the reality and the balance of power do not allow more than that at this stage. Do you support this ‘realism,’ or do you adhere to what has come to be known as the historical, original Palestine? Let us… Let us… Go ahead.”

Student 1: “My name is Hisham Sham’as, and I study political science. I just want to say everyone is talking about…”

Mediator: “Please address the question.”

Hisham Sham’as: “The state shouldn’t be only within the 1976 borders… Or rather, 1967… Israel must be wiped out.”

Mediator: “You mean, reviving the motto of erasing Israel from the map.”

Hisham Sham’as: “Israel should be completely wiped out, so the Palestinians will have a country to return to.”

Mediator: “If someone tells you this motto is unrealistic, how would you respond?”

Hisham Sham’as: “There is no such thing as unrealistic. Just as Israel… Just like Hitler fought the Jews – We are a great Islamic nation of Jihad, and we too should fight the Jews and burn them.”
