Hamas leader Haniya: Continue fighting until Israel destroyed and all refugees return


Hamas leader Haniya: Continue fighting until Israel destroyed and all refugees return
[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA


Let's be clear about what the following sentence means:
"The resistance will continue until all Palestinian land, including Al-Quds
(Jerusalem), has been liberated and all the refugees have returned," he
said. 
"all Palestinian land" - including Israel within the "Green Line" = 
destroying Israel in its entirety.
Is UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon listening? - "The UN chief reiterated
his position that the Palestinian Fatah-Hamas reconciliation accord signed
in Qatar, earlier this week does not conflict with President Abbas'  negotiations with Israel."

Gaza premier: Hamas 'will never recognise Israel'

Hamas "will never recognise Israel," Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniya said
Saturday in a speech in Iran that is likely to complicate Palestinian
efforts to form a unity government in the teeth of opposition from the
Jewish state. 
"They want us to recognise the Israeli occupation and cease resistance but, 
as the representative of the Palestinan people and in the name of all the world's freedom seekers, I am announcing from Azadi Square in Tehran that we will never recognise Israel," Haniya said.
"The resistance will continue until all Palestinian land, including Al-Quds
(Jerusalem), has been liberated and all the refugees have returned," he
said.  
Haniya's reiteration of Hamas's long-held stance was made on the occasion of 
Iran's commemoration of its 1979 Islamic revolution.  The Gaza leader spoke to an estimated crowd of 30,000 from a stage alongside Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
"The Iranian people are a partner in this victory," Haniya said. "God
willing, we will met you along with other Palestinians in a free Palestine,
in its capital Al-Quds," he said.



Israel rejects efforts by Hamas to link up with Fatah, the secular faction
of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas that runs the West Bank, to form a
unity government. It views Hamas as a terrorist organisation and Iran as its
sponsor and weapon supplier.



Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told UN envoys on Thursday that a
Hamas-Fatah accord signed this week to partner in the new government "does
not contribute to the advancement of peace negotiations or the well-being of
the Palestinian people."



The so-called Quartet of diplomatic players in the Middle East peace
process — the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and the United
States — has long demanded that any Palestinian government including Hamas
must meet certain conditions to join negotiations.  
Those are the renunciation of violence and the recognition of Israel and of past agreements with the Jewish state.
Direct peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have been
frozen since September 2010. The Palestinians have demanded that Israel halt
settlement construction in the occupied West Bank. Israel rejects any
conditions for talks to settle the Middle East conflict.
