Islamic religious law bans work in Gaza Strip tunnels | Middle East
This is just a political ploy by Abbas.
""Don't the arms dealers know that trading in weapons during the period of civil strife [between Hamas and Fatah] is haram [religiously forbidden]?" he asked, adding that the weapons were being used by "rebels" to continue "sowing dissension among Palestinians."
This statement is not true. There is no "civil strife." Why would a religious leader give a false statement? There are two governments in Palestine. The one in Gaza is the legal and elected government. The one in the West Bank is a US dictatorship. Abbas walked away from the government in 2007. This was a defacto resignation. Salem Fayad has never been the PM of Palestine. None of Abbas' cabinet legally hold office. Abbas stays in power with guns and money from the US.
The so called civil strife is Abbas' attempt, With the help of the US/Israel and our puppet Egypt, to bring Gaza under the rule of our dictator. This seems like another step in that process.
Yet another brilliant critique of the issues.
GAZA, (PIC)-- Spokesman for the Palestinian government Taher Al-Nunu stated Tuesday that some international and regional besieging parties want to retain the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip in order to blackmail the government politically and punish the Palestinian people for their democratic choice.
In a press statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC), spokesman Nunu slammed Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Abul Ghait for claiming that Hamas wants Egypt to recognize its right to rule Gaza.
The spokesman said that his Movement wants the Arab and Muslim countries and the international community to recognize the results of the last elections by which the Palestinian people chose Hamas to rule, stressing that no one has the right to expropriate the convictions of the Palestinian people.
Nunu: Besieging parties want the siege on Gaza to blackmail the govât
Except, the one in Gaza is a US-designated terrorist organization. Aside from that, Hamas is peachy keen.
And, Hamas is a democracy? Me no think so.
Gaza is under the rule of the fascists of Hamas. Pallies are none too happy about this, either.
When might we expect you to become familiar with the issues? In this lifetime?
They are only terrorists over here. They are not terrorists over there, and they were elected over there. I am sure the Palestinians have little interest in following our third grade name calling thing.
Hamas is not a democracy. It is a political party. Actually it is called the Change and Reform Party. This, however, does not change the status of the West Bank government.
Hamas is fascist? That is a new one.
The Nazis were elected, too. Doesn't really mean very much, does it?
The Pallies target Israeli civilians for violence, which defines terrorism, irrespective of whether you or they wish to concede so.
Hamas is a resistance movement dedicated to Israel's destruction. Hamas is Arabic for Islamic Resistance Movement.
Um, yah, Hamas is a fascist party.
Gazans are not permitted to leave w/out permission, for any reason, even medical emergencies.
There is no recognition of freedom, human rights and civil liberties. There is no due process, no appeals process, no supreme court.
Hamas is instituting Shari'a law that will prohibit women from laughing in public or wearing a bathing suit on the beach.
I coud go on, but, the point is made.
"The Nazis were elected, too."
"Hamas is a resistance movement dedicated to Israel's destruction."
That is true. Hamas will not recognize Israel's right to exist on Palestinian land.
"Gazans are not permitted to leave w/out permission, for any reason, even medical emergencies."
That is due to Israel's siege.
It is Abbas who trashed Palestine's judicial system.
Hamas gets considerable support from women.
