Resheq to Abbas: Resign as long as you are incapable to resist pressures

[ 26/08/2010 - 10:45 AM ]

DAMASCUS, (PIC)-- Ezzat Al-Resheq, a member of Hamas's political bureau, called on de facto president Mahmoud Abbas to step down from all his posts as long as he cannot withstand the Zio-American pressures or protect the Palestinian rights and constants.

In a statement to Quds Press, Resheq underscored that the decision to participate in Washington talks did not reflect the majority will of the Palestinian people and their political actors including 11 factions, three of them are members of the Palestine liberation organization (PLO).

He added that Abbas's decision to enter into direct negotiations with Israelis while being isolated from the majority of his people further vindicated that he yielded to the Zio-American conditions, and thus he cannot be trusted over the Palestinian cause and its constants.

In a related context, an informed source told the Palestinian information center (PIC) on condition of anonymity that the increasing talk in the last two weeks about a financial crisis the Palestinian Authority (PA) has been facing and its failure to pay its employees the salaries of September is a media fabrication to justify the reason for going into direct talks with Israel.

The source stressed that the "scarecrow" of salaries is used by the PA whenever it finds itself in trouble in order to inform the citizens that the price for any refusal to engage in direct negotiations is a severe financial crisis that would affect all civil servants. ( I fully agree, they used it to justify going to Oslo)

He added that these fabrications are a broken record previously used by US strongman Salam Fayyad following any talk about a cabinet reshuffle resulting from his quarrel with Fatah officials or when he feels that the reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah has neared, so as to remind everyone that the key to money is in his hand.

Palestinian professor of political science Abdelsattar Qassem had also told Al-Jazeera satellite channel a few days ago that the only reason for the PA's decision to engage in face-to-face talks with Israelis was that its leaders are no longer able to abandon the life of luxury sustained by Israelis and the American administration.
