At rally marking 23 years since founding of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh says 'Hamas will be the faithful guard of the Palestinian people's rights and the basic Palestinian principles.'AS LONG AS HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH AND SYRIA AND IRAN REFUSE TO ACCEPT ISRAEL, THERE CAN BE NO PEACE.Hamas will never recognize Israel, Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh said Tuesday at a rally to mark the 23rd anniversary of the militant group's founding.
"We say it with confidence as we said it five years ago when we formed our government, and we say it today: We will never recognize Israel," Haniyeh told a crowd in Gaza City numbering tens of thousands.
A poster at the rally featured photographs of Hamas leaders assassinated by Israel in the last 10 years.
"Hamas will be the faithful guard of the Palestinian people's rights and the basic Palestinian principles," Haniyeh continued.
"We say today that there will be no occupation of the land of Palestine and then we can say there is no future for the occupation on our land. I mean from the sea to the river and from Rafah up to Naqoora."
The rally featured a scale model of Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque under a slogan proclaiming that "We Remain Committed to the Covenant."
REPEAT: AS LONG AS HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH AND SYRIA AND IRAN REFUSE TO ACCEPT ISRAEL, THERE CAN BE NO PEACE.
AND BECAUSE SYRIA AND HIZBALLAH AND HAMAS DEPEND ON IRAN'S TYRANTS, THE ROAD TO PEACE GOES THROUGH TEHRAN.
HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH AND SYRIA WILL NOT MAKE PEACE UNTIL THEIR BENEFACTOR IS NEUTERED.
SADLY, BY PUTTING MORE PRESSURE ON ISRAEL THAN ON IRAN, OBAMA HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO BE THE MAJOR OBSTACLE TO PEACE.
THE MOST RECENT WIKILEAKS PROVE THAT THE HOUSE OF SAUD PLEADED WITH OBAMA TO ERADICATE THE IRANIAN MENACE, BUT OBAMA CHOSE INSTEAD TO PRESSURE ISRAEL AND APPEASE FATAH.
THEREFORE, TO NEUTER IRAN AND GAIN PEACE, WE MUST FIRST GET RID OF OBAMA.
I PRAY WE CAN HOLD ON UNTIL 2012... SIGH...
