Masri: Abbas is a real threat to the Palestinian cause

[ 02/10/2010 - 08:55 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Senior Hamas official and lawmaker Mushir Al-Masri stated that de facto president Mahmoud Abbas poses a real threat to the Palestinian cause and demanded him to apologize for his big mistakes against the Palestinian people.

In a massive rally organized by Hamas on Friday, MP Masri denounced Abbas for his persistence in going against the unanimous will of the Palestinian people, who oppose the peace talks with the Israeli occupation state, and for breaking his promises to end his direct talks if settlement activities continued.

He said that Fatah's authority is panting for its frivolous negotiations with the Israeli government and does not care about settlement and Judaization activities taking place on the ground.

The lawmaker stressed that the West Bank is under two occupation forces and Hamas would not remain silent forever and would revolt in the face of its oppressors.

The lawmaker also called on the Palestinian people to ally themselves with the Palestinian resistance and its men and pay serious attention to the manipulation practiced by Abbas and his entourage against the Palestinian cause.

For his part, senior Islamic Jihad official Mohamed Al-Hindi called on the Palestinian Authority (PA) to withdraw from its talks with Israeli occupation and align itself with the resistance, warning that Israel uses these talks as a cover for its crimes and Judaization activities.

In a march held in Khan Younis on the 10th anniversary of the Aqsa infifada, Hindi said that the PA went into its negotiations with the Israeli occupation without national support or consensus.

He noted that the American administration supported the PA-Israeli negotiations in order to cover its failure in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Gov’t in Gaza: Goldstone report freeze a free service to Israel

[ 02/10/2010 - 03:35 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Minister of Justice in Gaza Dr. Mohammed Ghoul said attempts by the Fatah authority in the West Bank to freeze the Goldstone report to the UN for another six months for the second time in one year act as a “free service” to Israel.

Dr. Ghoul said in a press conference held in Gaza on Saturday: “Delaying the due date is murder to the report and neglect of the rights of the victims and those affected by the war and its consequences on Gaza, and gives [Israel] justification to continue to commit more crimes against the Palestinian people.”

The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon violated Judge Goldstone’s recommendations when ignoring reports issued from Gaza, which came as a clear response to the recommendations, the minister added.

Ki-moon should responsibly deal with the government in Gaza and recognize it as a government elected by the Palestinians, and should accept its reports as he would any other world government, Ghoul went on to say.

He condemned the report issued from the committee in Ramallah, charging that it vilifies the Palestinian resistance movements and clears the Israeli government of violation charges in its war on Gaza.

Ghoul said the committee's report did not commit to integrity, credibility, neutrality and nationalism.

“The committee (members) relied on some of the reports issued from Gaza and did not come to Gaza (themselves), so its report is considered biased, aimed at undermining the resistance movements and acquitting the occupation forces,” the Gaza official said.

“Delaying the report is an insult to the blood of the murdered and gives a cover for Israel to continue its aggression against the Palestinian people,” he continued.

Dr. Ghoul called on the global community to shoulder its responsibilities and make efforts to bring Israel to trial in international courts to give justice to the victims of the war.

“The Arab League must make serious efforts to lift the Gaza siege, which is considered a crime against humanity, and a shame for the international community as long as it goes on,” the minister concluded.
