Sami Abu Zuhri quotes
The one-sided announcement by the Israeli occupation to end the fighting means nothing for us in Hamas. We are not asking for an end to the fighting but to the injustices inflicted on the Palestinians in Gaza.
This protest is a condemnation of the Israeli crimes against our people in the West Bank and Jerusalem – in particular the kidnapping and burning of Mohammed Abu Khdeir. Hamas will never allow these crimes break the will of the Palestinian people.
We warn the occupation from waging any war or wide-scale aggression against our Palestinian people. The price the occupation will pay for any aggression will be even bigger.
The death of Sharon after eight years of being in a coma is a sign from God and a lesson for tyrants. The departure of this criminal who killed our people and our leaders represents an historic moment for the Palestinian people.
Our people today feel extreme happiness at the death and departure of this criminal whose hands were smeared with the blood of our people and the blood of our leaders here and in exile.
The Hamas movement supports all the diplomatic acts that add to Palestinian victories. We welcome the move toward statehood at United Nations. However, we want it to be through a national programme based on resistance and the preservation of Palestinian rights.
Palestinian factions will resort to all means in order to protect our Palestinian civilians in the absence of a world effort to stop the Israeli aggression.
Hamas blesses the attack in Tel Aviv and sees it as a natural response to the Israeli massacres…in Gaza.
The Israeli attacks are aimed at breaking Palestinian resistance and the will of the Palestinian people. They will not succeed. Resistance is capable of protecting the Palestinian people and of teaching the enemy a lesson so they will no longer commit this type of crime again.
Abbas' speech was an emotional speech, he managed to show the suffering of the Palestinian people but he didn't succeed in finding a specific way of arriving at a solution, as he made a link between this demand for recognition and a return to negotiations.
Hamas, the Islamic resistance, welcomes the decision by the Turkish government to expel the Israeli ambassador, and considers this a natural reply to the attack against the volunteers on the flotilla, who were protesting against the blockade of Gaza.
We reiterate that Palestinian reconciliation is an internal Palestinian concern and that the negotiations with the occupation have proved to be futile. Hamas will not recognise the Israeli occupation under any condition.
If they are interested in calm it would be natural for calm to be restored. Calm will be met with calm.
We call on the Fatah movement not to accept these diktats and we consider any response to this call a national crime that will provide cover for the occupation to continue their settlement activity and the theft of Palestinian land.
This is only natural because of the absence of proper conditions for an election. It underlines the credibility of Hamas' position. We rejected the idea of elections before any overall agreement is reached.
The Americans and Israelis abandoned him and turned him into a tool to implement their policies. Abbas should admit that a peaceful settlement has failed.
The president's call for early elections is unacceptable, unconstitutional and illegal. Neither Abbas, nor all the powers who support him, can do it.
