Khaled Meshaal quotes
We do not have secret contacts and we do not have contacts with Israel.
Is there a new politics that Europe can offer? That is the point. What if Europe continues to close its ears and remain inept? As long as the international community and Europe retreat, there will be no positive outcome. The Arab and Muslim world expects Europe to offer something more.
We refute and condemn these kind of statements because they are insulting. We do not expect much from an American administration, whether it is Democrat or Republican. We are not counting on that. We're focusing on our rights.
There is no axis but there is an American desire to classify the world as to how it wishes it to be seen. According to its lying criteria, America classes states as either modern or extremist. We have to refute this American vision.
The nature of Israel's position is proof that there is no possible arrangement on the horizon because of Israel's alignment with the US. Olmert can say what he wants, Jerusalem was and still is Palestinian and Arab.
Israel has to announce clearly that it accepts a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, including Jerusalem without settlements, and the right of refugees to return. Without this, we will never agree.
The usage of violence as a means? We are a people under occupation. Half of our people have been under occupation for 60 years, the other half are dispersed all over the world. Is it not a people's right to defend itself? It is the least we can do. It is a duty and an honour.
We have links with Tehran and we also have relations with Arab countries, as well as good relations with certain European countries. What is the problem? They are political relations and we rely on nobody.
Listen, there have been signed agreements between the Palestinians and Israelis since Oslo, which have proved useless. The question is this: will Palestinians be given their rights? At this time, we can neither see a different Israeli nor American position on the horizon. There is no international willingness to impose a satisfactory solution for the Palestinian people.
There is no military support. There is, however, financial support to the Hanyeh government from certain Arab countries. What is the problem? It is the Palestinian peoples' right.
The problem is not that there is an entity called Israel, the problem is that the Palestinian state is non-existent.
Our condemnation will not be in words but in deeds.
