Ismail HaniyehOne of the leaders of Hamas, the terrorist organization controlling Gaza, vowed today to “liberate Palestine.” Ismail Haniyeh, who is the Deputy Chief of the Hamas Political Bureau, said that weapons of resistance against Israel are “legitimate.” Despite the fact that Gaza, together with it the plight of the Palestinian people for a state, was physically taken back 20 years during the recent war with Israel, Hamas is apparently remaining steadfast in its bid to “free Palestine.” Haniyeh said that his organization would never disarm even “in exchange for the rehabilitation of the Strip or for anything else.” As he said during a speech in Gaza, “Until Palestine is liberated, the weapons of the resistance are legitimate. The weapons of the resistance are a red line.” The Deputy Chief also stressed that Hamas is not interested in direct negotiations with the Jewish State, despite a statement earlier in the week made by Senior Hamas official Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, who said the group could be forced to negotiate directly with Israel, something it has never done before.
