Palestinian Authority Chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) hailed today’s national unity government with Hamas as “the end” of a long period of tension between Hamas and Abbas’ Fatah organization.  Palestinian division.

“Today, with the formation of a national consensus government, we announce the end of a Palestinian division that has greatly damaged our national case, Abu Mazen said. “This black page in the history (of the Palestinians) has been turned forever, and we will not allow it to come back.”

However, Abbas was silent on comments made last week by his senior government partner, Hamas’ Gaza Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, that the unity government would serve to further the Palestinian struggle “against the main enemy, the Zionist enemy, and to continue with the option of resistance.”

According to footage posted on the Palestinian Media Watch website, Haniya also told the Arabic-language al-Hayat al-Jadida paper last Wednesday that “Those who liberated Gaza, with the help of Allah, can liberate Jerusalem, the West Bank and the rest of Palestine (i.e., Israel).”

Haniyeh also reiterated to al-Aqsa TV Hamas’ Hamas goal of destroying Israel through violence, and said that the same, determined Palestinian “resistance” that led to Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip would eventually cause Israel to flee “Jerusalem, the West Bank and the rest of Palestine.”

“Since he already said ‘Jerusalem and the West Bank,’ the term ‘rest of Palestine,’ can only mean the rest of Israel,” said Palestinian Media Watch.

The website also cited the Ma’an news service, which quoted Haniyeh’s explanation that the partnership with Fatah was designed to”protect… the resistance project” and “the weapon of resistance.”

‘[Reconciliation] also means real partnership in the institution of leadership, adherence to the national principles, protection of the resistance project, protection of the weapon of resistance, and [joint] action with all our people for the release of the prisoners and Jerusalem.’”Haniyeh said:

  1. What is wrong with Abbas resisting Israeli Occupation on the pathway to peace?

  2. John Hanson says:

    since 1948 the Palestinians have derailed each and every peace offering

  3. David Cohen says:

    Are you equating firing missiles at Israel and killing civilians with Resistance? If they had gone along with the UN Partition of 1948, they would have had their nation of Palestine long ago. Those who left in 1948 left to give the seven Arab Armies that invaded Israel a free hand. They were also were lied to by their leaders that the Israelis woud murder them like they planned to do to the Israelis.

  4. resistance – by war / rockets / …
    or by doing the best to run a state – and accept others ?!?!?

  5. אני לא יכולה לסבול שהוא מטלם עם המסגד המסריח הזה שניבנה במקום בית המקדש!!!! גם במקום מגדל התאומים הם רצו לבנות מסגד באותו מקום בדיוק!!!! פשוט לא יאומן!!! כמו כלבים מסמנים טריטוריה! ונותנים להם זה הכי מעצבן!

  6. Kim Sloan says:

    The enemies of Israel never intend to have peace.

  7. terrorism by any other name is still terrorism and must be dealt with in the harshest manner possible. time to take off the gloves….Right

  8. This is the beginning of the end for the palestinians. They will accomplish nothing but their own deaths. And, there is no paradise for such monstrous and evil sinners.

  9. “Pathway to peace” must have a mutual destination. Stop deluding yourself.

  10. Sir, I’m not sure that you know me well enough, or at all, to insult the integrity of my position.

  11. Judith Dowla says:

    Yes Stuart, that is how it goes with our tax dollars. Do you recall a saying that went like this, 'Render unto Caesar what is Caesar and render unto G-D what is G-D`S.' What we can do is to pray for our leaders to do things right, right in ADONAI`S Eyes. That is the most we can do and to rally around the flag is not of much value these days. A quiet riot may not gain a thing but then again you never know.
