Gaza City, 28 Dzulqa’dah 1435/23 September 2014 (MINA) – Head of Hamas’ Political Bureau Khalid Meshaal yesterday welcomed the call made by the Global Union for Muslim Scholars to continue the resistance until the liberation of Palestine.
The union made the call during an event celebrating the “resistance’s victory” held in Doha yesterday evening. Meshaal said his movement “will not concede any inch of the Palestinian lands”.
He said: “Some see Israel as being very large, we [Hamas] see it as being despicable,” Middle East Monitor (MEMO) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting, Tuesday.
Meshaal said that the victory of the Palestinian resistance, including Al-Qassam Brigades, is a miracle that “paved the way towards liberation”.
He noted that the Palestinian issue is not limited in Gaza. “We will not allow anyone to take Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank from the resistance equation,” he said.
Regarding the propaganda war waged by the Palestinian Authority and Fatah against Hamas, he said: “As soon as the war ended, the attack against the resistance started… Do they want to create a hostile atmosphere throughout attacking the resistance?”
Regarding the reconstruction of Gaza, Meshaal called prioritising it, noting that nothing would compensates the resistance the people of Gaza showed during the Israeli war. “Allah can only do this,” he said.
The top Hamas leader stressed the importance of implementing all the terms of the Palestinian reconciliation agreement. “We will never accept ignoring any of the terms,” he said, stressing that his movement “is committed” to all of them.
Meshaal denied that his movement is involved in terrorism. “We adopt the moderate method of our religion… Hamas owns a political mind that is open to the regional and international surroundings and is open to everyone,” he said.
He stressed that his movement does not fight anyone based on religion and ethnicity. “We believe in civilised dialogue,” he concluded. (T/P3/R01)
