Hamas Leader: Palestinian Stance against Israel Unchangeable
20:40 | 2012-10-27A man of principle.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh underlined his nation's irrevocable stance against Israel, stressing that Palestinians will never ignore even a single span of their land. "We (Palestinians) will never overlook even one span of Palestine's soil because Palestine is an endowed land and no person, leader, organization or group is entitled to the right to ignore this land," Haniyeh said in a meeting on Saturday with the members of 'Miles of Smiles 17' aid convoy and an Indonesian delegation visiting Gaza. "Israel has no future in the Palestinian lands and our motto is that we will never recognize the Zionist regime," he said.
In the interests of throwing some modest light on how far the arch-terrorist's principles take him: Many Israelis are aware that earlier this year, the man who instructs the forces under his command to fire off rockets and mortars into anything Israeli and within reach, made arrangements for his brother-in-law to be saved by Zionist doctors at an "Occupation" medical facility in one of the Zionist Entity's major cities.
In early 2012, Haniyeh allowed his sister, Suhila Abd el-Salam Ahmed Haniyeh, to accompany her critically ill husband to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva, Israel, for emergency heart treatment. After successful treatment and care, the couple returned to Gaza without incident. Word of the unusual visit was released only four months later. It remains to be seen how this special treatment for the leader's relatives will be regarded by Gazans. [Wikipedia]
