Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal rallies supporters in Gaza (archive).

Including Gaza as part of the Palestinian Authority works to Abbas’ benefit because it will solidify position that a Palestinian Authority state needs to on contiguous territory, meaning that Sderot residents can start packing up and leaving their homes as well as their bomb shelters, which would save Hamas lots of time and money when digging terror tunnels from the Western Negev to Ashdod.

Mashaal’s aim is the same as Mashaal, but his strategy is different When Mashaal says that there will be another war to “free Palestine,” he is referring to all of Israel, from Kiryat Shmona in the north to Eilat in the south, and from the Dead Sea in the east to the Mediterranean Sea on the west.


Abbas talks about a “two-state solution,” the magic phrase that sends U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry into hallucinations and hypnotizes the foreign media into pretending that the Palestinian Authority’s maps of “Palestine” don’t include the existence of Israel.

But Mashaal reminded everyone in his speech that he has people on his side.

He thanked his sponsors for terror, namely Qatar, Turkey, Yemen and Algeria, and he thanked South Africa and Latin American countries for boycotting Israel.
