Hamsa Mansour, spokesman
for the Islamic Action Front,

Akbar (God is greater) and calls
for jihad or holy struggle, said
signs of emerging normalization
with the Jewish state were "get-

He called on society's thinkers
and elders to take the lead in
fighting the "phase of normal-

disposal and warned of grave
