Hamas celebrates its 25 anniversary of its founding.
A Qassam headed for Jerusalem.
Is it just art or it it politics and terror?
Can territorial compromise be achieved? Who is seeking a one-state solution (and who never sought a two-state solution)?
Khaled Mashaal, head of Hamas's political bureau, said on Sunday that the Palestinian unity must be based on the resistance in all its forms, the armed and the popular, stressing that all the Palestinian factions are partners...The Hamas leader also vowed that all factions would work together to liberate Palestine, pledging that his Movement would never give up its principles.
Mashaal on Saturday reiterated his movement’s refusal to “give up one inch of the land of Palestine.” Mashaal, who arrived in the Gaza Strip for the first time ever on Friday, said: “Palestine from the river to the sea, from the north to the south, is our land and we will never give up one inch or any part of it." He added, “Jihad and armed resistance are the right and real way to liberate Palestine and restore our rights.”
Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal and prime minister Ismail Haniyeh visited the sister of late president Yasser Arafat on Sunday...Hamas official Izzat al-Rishiq said the visit was impressive and provided an opportunity for Hamas leaders to meet members of Arafat's family, as well as Fatah leaders Zakariya al-Agha and Hisham Abdul-Raziq.
A senior Fatah official said that Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal's speech in Gaza on Saturday was "very positive." Azzam al-Ahmad told Ma'an that Mashaal's speech reflected the contents a reconciliation deal.."In order to implement this, we should quickly activate the work of the election commission which was stopped in July," al-Ahmad said.
