Mahmoud al-Zahar quotes
So let us return to Spain again because we left in 1492 and called for the re-occupation of Britain, India, and Arab and Muslim nations, and called for re-occupation by France of Syria, Lebanon, Algeria.
First, the agreement made in Cairo over four years ago said we needed to form a national unity government, which would not include members of Hamas or Fatah, or even from other Palestinian factions. That is the first point in the Doha agreement.
I would like to ask those people in the West a series of questions, and I'm sure they know the answers but do not dare to answer any of them.
Let me correct you, the movement is not controlling, but we govern according to the results of the election and because the West's policy is against the development of the Islamic policy, it is described as controlling. We must govern in Gaza and in the West Bank and Jerusalem, because that is the results of the elections.
The West is again being hypocritical and against the Muslim world and Islamic influences, in particular it doesn't want to accept the results of free and fair elections, which all the world saw were free and fair.
If you ask the French, what they think of the occupation they will say its illegal. And what about the Nazi's occupation of France, it is illegal of course and the resistance by Charles de Gaulle's followers was seen as action by warriors for freedom, but they will not talk about the Israeli occupation of Palestine in the same way, because of their hypocrisy.
Hamas has not taken any decision to escalate. It is trying to reach a truce, conditioned on the Israeli enemy halting aggression.
The resistance has the right to defend itself. I think Israel is the only loser in all these criminal actions, because there are no reasons to carry out an attack against any Palestinian leader in Gaza while people are celebrating the release of prisoners.
They are trying to strangulate and to starve the innocent people by cutting our money from our goods. We are going to treat by all legal means through discussion these issues with the Arabic and Islamic countries and the international community.
