Netanyahu wants submission not 'peace'

WEST BANK, (PIC)-- Palestinian lawmaker Ibrahim Abu Salem of Hamas's parliamentary bloc in the Palestinian legislature has derided the conditions put forward by Israeli premier Binyamin Netanyahu to make "peace" with the Palestinians.

Before a special session held by the Israeli parliament on Wednesday, Netanyahu reiterated his conditions to resume the "peace process" with the Palestinians, including recognizing Palestine as Jewish homeland, withdrawing all litigations filed against Israel for its crimes against the Palestinian people, dropping of the RoR, and accepting a demilitarized Palestinian state.

"How the Zionist entity could put such conditions while it doesn’t even recognize the simplest rights of the Palestinian people, confiscating their lands, and practices terrorism and oppression against them?", Abu Salem said.

He also rejected the notion of a demilitarized state that Netanyahu is talking about especially that the Israeli occupation would not agree to disarm Jewish settlers let alone their occupation army, "so how could they deny us our legal right to defend ourselves".

Moreover, Abu Salem warned that Netanyahu's call to end the Arab-Israeli struggle meant to open the way for gratis normalization of ties between the Arabs and the Hebrew state, describing such call as "contempt" for the Arab national decision.

For his part, legislator Mohammed Shehab, who also belongs to Hamas's bloc, belittled Netanyahu's conditions, stressing that not even a single Palestinian child would accept them.

"Netanyahu could dream as he wishes… he also could put the conditions he dreams of, but the question is: would the Palestinian people accept his conditions? Or would a single Palestinian child listen to it? Definitely the answer would be No", Shehab pointed out.

He stressed that the Palestinian people don’t pay any attention to those conditions simply because they strongly believe that the Zionist occupation would finally be removed from the Palestinian land, and the Palestinian refugees would return to their homes to build the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

He also scorned Palestinian officials who hurry up and accept to pursue the futile negotiations with the IOA at the expense of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian refugees, describing their action as "treason to the people and betrayal to the Palestinian issue".

"Those [Palestinian] officials who betrayed the Palestinian national constants are actually Zionists in a Palestinian dress, and definitely they will end in the trash of history because they linked their existence to the existence of the Zionist enemy", Shehab underscored.

Fatah units accuse of Abbas of treason

Abu Al-Reesh Brigades says what Qaddumi revealed is a drop in the ocean

GAZA, (PIC)-- The Martyr Ahmad Abu al-Reesh Brigades (MARB), which is affiliated with the Fatah movement, said that what Qaddumi revealed lately is a drop in the ocean of the "treason of Mahmoud Abbas and [Muhammad] Dahlan," and called for putting them on trial.

Amin al-Hassi, the general commander of the MARB said, in a statement on Saturday: "No one was surprised by the revelations made by brother Farouq al-Qaddumi, the secretary of Fatah, when he exposed the biggest conspiracy in the history of the Fatah leadership. He clarified matters and refreshed the memory of Fatah partisans on a matter that some tried to burry under the carpet with Zionist and American help."

He added that many mercenaries inside Fatah tried to form a cover, by their silence, for the Abbas-Dahlan crime which led to the death of Yasir Arafat; "the enemy before the fried exposed their evil deeds. This momentous event is a disgraceful blot in their black record which is drenched in the blood of resistance fighters, including Aqsa Martyrs Brigades fighters and Fatah activists."

Hassi stressed that the documents that were revealed by Qaddumi were genuine and the only people who deny them are those who benefit from their masters in the Muqata'a.

Hassi expressed his support for Qaddumi and said that the Fatah conference which will be held in Bethlehem early next month is not representative of Fatah and those who will attend it have very little to do the "real Fatah".

He called for the non-participation of "murderer Dahlan who is responsible for the killing of Fatah fighters by involving them in a loosing war in Gaza while, he and his children were enjoying a holiday at the expense of the Palestinian people and the Fatah movement."
