Hamas to Fatah: Let's fight Israel togetherfight Israel together.
Speaking at a rally for Hamas supporters in Gaza City, Zahar said, “Our hands are extended to Fatah to join the program of [armed] resistance and the liberation of Palestine.”
Addressing Fatah, he added, “Come and join the program of resistance and stop wasting your time and effort. Let’s join hands and carry the rifle together.”
Zahar said that Fatah members who wish to join the “bandwagon of the triumphant, celebrate with us and become our partners are welcome.”
He claimed that the West was now displaying an understanding of Hamas’s armed resistance strategy.
“They no longer see our people as terrorists and murderers who have no respect for women and children and who only love blood,” Zahar said. “Westerners came to the Gaza Strip and saw that we are among the most civilized people.”
Nabil Sha’ath, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, expressed optimism regarding the prospects of achieving unity with Hamas. He said that the Palestinian Authority had released a number of Hamas members from its prisons in the West Bank.
The PA has also decided to reopen Hamas institutions in the West Bank that had been closed for security reasons, Sha’ath said.
He said that the PA leadership was prepared for “full partnership” with Hamas in any political move in the future, and added that the two sides would meet in Cairo soon to discuss ending their dispute.
Sha’ath said that Fatah and Hamas leaders have voiced satisfaction over the participation of their followers in joint celebrations and rallies in the West Bank and Gaza Strip over the past two weeks.
PLO Executive Committee member Wasel Abu Yusef said that Fatah and Hamas were now waiting for an invitation from Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to hold reconciliation talks in Cairo.Anyone who thought that the very real assets Israel gave up in exchange for the Oslo Accords were in exchange for anything other than a very temporary peace was fooling himself. Here's Yasser Arafat himself speaking at a Johannesburg, South Africa mosque in May 1994 calling the Oslo Accords a hudna, a temporary truce.
Let's go to the videotape.
But peace is at hand, and the 'Palestinians' will abide by the next agreement they make much more than they abide by this one.
What could go wrong?
