The Islamic Jihad official pointed in his speech to the suspicious remarks made by PA leaders regarding their intention to recognize the Jewish state and warned of another calamity that could befall the Palestinian people as a result of the antinational positions of the PA.

The Islamic Jihad official also slammed the US hegemony over the world and its persistence in killing thousands of civilians all over the globe in the name of democracy.
"The world which is ruled by the US is merciless and heartless and we say to this world, 'you have killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and threaten to kill millions in Sudan, while you are afraid that some of your crimes get leaked to the media so as not to pose a threat to your soldiers," the official said.
"We understand that your mission in Palestine is to ensure Israel's security and this means killing and displacing us. You are accomplices in the blockade, [Israel's] crimes and the Judaization of our holy places, and Israel commits its war crimes on your behalf. You are a gang without values and your democracy is stained with the blood of martyrs in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Palestine, but we will extract our rights in our own way," he added.
Senior Hamas official Khalil Hayya, who attended the ceremony, also highlighted the importance of resisting the Israeli occupation as the only option to liberate Palestine and urged Fatah to have the genuine will to achieve reconciliation in order to strengthen the internal front in the face of the occupation.
