Hundreds of Gazans Protest Against the ‘Peace Talks’

Hamas rejects the idea of negotiations, security cooperation, exchange of land or forfeiture of the 'right of return' with Israel. It is virtually certain that any unity government will disavow any agreements Fatah makes during these 'peace talks.'

Hundreds of Gazan residents joined protest marches organized by the terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad on Friday, August 23, AFP reported.

Upon completion of Friday services, protesters gathered and marched to a central square in Gaza City.  Signs reading “no to negotiations” and labeling Mahmoud Abbas a “political failure” were held aloft by the protesters.

Hamas’s religious affairs minister Ismail Radwan condemned Mahmoud Abbas for engaging in negotiations with Israel and for considering any compromises of core Arab Palestinian demands in his speech to the protesters.

“All the Palestinian factions say you don’t have the right to relinquish any piece of our land, or to give up Palestinian rights,” he said.

“Returning to talks is a blow to the jihad and to the sacrifices of our people, the blood of our martyrs and to our prisoners behind bars in Israel,” Radwan declared.

“No to these absurd negotiations, no to returning to the negotiating table, no to security cooperation, no to the exchange of land, and not to giving up on the right of return,” Radwan shouted into the microphone.

Israeli and Arab Palestinian negotiators held the third in their series talks on Tuesday in Jerusalem.  The next session will take place in Jericho.

There has been an ongoing effort by Fatah and Hamas to form a unity government which would represent all the Arab Palestinians.  The Palestinian Authority unity government was disbanded in 2007 by Abbas, whose term officially ended in 2006.  Since that time Hamas has been the de facto government in Gaza while Fatah has been the de facto Arab Palestinian ruling government over Areas A and B of the disputed territories.

During the past week, Abbas offered to hold general elections, ostensibly as a move to unify Fatah and Hamas.  That offer was rejected by Hamas which demanded more issues to be placed under consideration, while Fatah wished the items to be more carefully circumscribed. In addition, Hamas strongly supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt – Hamas is an outgrowth of the Brotherhood – while Fatah favors the military’s control over Egypt and supported the overthrow of former president Mohamad Morsi.

The Arab Palestinian negotiators engaged in the current rounds of U.S.-moderated ‘peace talks’ solely represent Fatah.  Whatever concessions or agreements entered into by Fatah would surely be rejected by Hamas, if those parties ever succeed in creating a unity government.

On the other hand, the Arab Palestinians, the U.S. and the global community will undoubtedly demand that Israel honor  whatever concessions, if any, the Jewish State makes during these talks.

  4. SaloumehZ says:

    Gadna_reject Yes, they need to be able to throw rocks at people! It’s what they live for.

  5. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ The problem is that there are many non-Palestinians & even non-Arabs spreading that gem. Pals seen as lesser of evils I guess.

  6. SaloumehZ says:

    Gadna_reject Islamists are all evil and dangerous.

  7. ShalomforIsrael says:

    SaloumehZ Gadna_reject They are and can never be trusted

  8. SaloumehZ says:

    ShalomforIsrael Never never never!

  9. ShalomforIsrael says:

    SaloumehZ Absolutely,they sell their own souls.

  10. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ ShalomforIsrael Yet, 2 them, Jews r seen as untrustworthy. Israel is helping wounded & sick Arabs…even releasing prisoners…

  11. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ ShalomforIsrael But we can’t be trusted.

  12. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ ShalomforIsrael It’s hilarious how they project old anti-Semitic memes on us yet it’s really them who do what they say we do.

  13. SaloumehZ says:

    ShalomforIsrael And from their grand mufti of Jerusalem, they are infected with Nazism.

  14. SaloumehZ says:

    Gadna_reject Don’t even try to look for logic in them. Where you would use logic, they use ideology.

  15. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ I agree with you,although I believe the release of terrorists was wrong and pray no more are. They will always

  16. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ I asked one recently for proof of Zionist conspiracies…he only said that the proof is there for those whose eyes are open.

  17. SaloumehZ says:

    ShalomforIsrael Yes, release of terrorists is always wrong.

  18. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ point the finger at Israel even though Israel treats them with more humanity than there own people.

  19. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ Typical answer = no proof & avoiding having to try to even come up with a lie for proof.

  20. ShalomforIsrael says:

    SaloumehZ Thank you

  21. SaloumehZ says:

    Gadna_reject The proof is there for those who have been brainwashed.

  22. Gadna_reject says:

    ShalomforIsrael SaloumehZ I do not agree w/it either. My point was Israel will do almost anything for peace…yet Jews are untrustworthy.

  23. ShalomforIsrael says:

    SaloumehZ Gadna_reject And that is exactly what it is brainwashing from early childhood so they know nothing but lies

  24. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ Well obviously his eyes are blinded and he knows nothing as he could not even engage.

  25. Gadna_reject says:

    SaloumehZ Indoctrination is a huge problem.

  26. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ I know you don’t agree with it either. No matter what Israel does they will never trust her all they want to do is

  27. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ is destroy Israel and every Jew and yet Israel does everything for peace but has been betrayed

  28. Gadna_reject says:

    ShalomforIsrael SaloumehZ Like I said the other day, Israel left Gaza and all it got was these lousy rockets. Land 4 peace = ein shalom.

  29. ShalomforIsrael says:

    Gadna_reject SaloumehZ Sadly you are right and yet again Israel is trying to do the right thing and we see what the result is.

  30. Becky Risk says:

    I didn’t expect anything different.
