    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Tens of thousands of Gazans turned out Wednesday for an anniversary rally of the ruling Hamas, a demonstration of strength for the Islamic militant movement ahead of Palestinian general elections tentatively set for the spring.

    Hamas organizers said some 350,000 people attended Wednesday's rally. The estimate could not be confirmed independently, but the rally site, a large open area, was packed and an overflow crowd spilled into adjacent streets.

    The rally came a week before another round of reconciliation talks between Abbas and Hamas' top leader in exile, Khaled Mashaal.

    Addressing the crowd, Haniyeh called for continued armed struggle against Israel.

    "We affirm that armed resistance is our strategic option and the only way to liberate our land, from the sea to the river," he said. "God willing, Hamas will lead the people ... to the uprising until we liberate Palestine, all of Palestine."

    "Palestine" is an English word invented by the British to call Israel during the British Mandate based on the Latin "Palestina" invented by the Romans to call Israel during the Roman Empire based on ancient enemies of the Israelites, the Philistines who originated from Greece. "Philistine" is based on the Hebrew word Peleshet meaning "invader" that is found in the Hebrew Bible.

    So-called Palestinians are calling their country Palestine that is English, Latin, Greek and Hebrew in its origin? They couldn't think up an original name for their own identity and own country?
