Head of the political bureau of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, affirmed that Jerusalem is not alone in the confrontation, and that Gaza is present with its valiant resistance to protect the people of occupied Jerusalem.
Haniyeh said during an electronic seminar: We will not accept unless this uprising continues, and we have achieved many victories over the past few days.
He added, “The youth of Jerusalem won when they forced the settlers and the occupation police out of the squares and staircases of the Damascus Gate, and preserved the Islamicness of Jerusalem and the battle of Jerusalem, our battle for all of us. Jerusalem is not only for the Palestinians, but rather Arab and Islamic and it is the beginning and the end, and it is the pivot of the conflict.”
Haniyeh called on the peoples of the Arab and Islamic nation to prepare for a real victory for our people, as we are in a battle over the extension of geography and history.
And he called on all the people of the nation to convert to a strategy of support and entrustment to Jerusalem to a strategy of participation in defending and liberating Jerusalem.
He stressed that Hamas went to elections within the framework of an integrated vision, based on arranging the Palestinian home, building the Palestinian system on the basis of partnership, rebuilding the PLO, restoring the central and pivotal role of our Palestinian people in exile and diaspora in building Palestinian institutions, stressing the necessity of holding elections in Jerusalem as in Gaza. And the bank.
He added, “The elections in Jerusalem should be a national battle and a political clash with the occupation,” adding: “Our people started early in heading to the polls in Jerusalem through this gift in which the youth faced the occupation forces and settlers.”
He explained what is happening in Jerusalem is not a gift separate from the general context in which the city is living, and it comes in the context of the struggle over the identity of Jerusalem, indicating that the Palestinians are in front of the chapters of the so-called Deal of the Century, which aims to liquidate the issue, consider Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and unleash the Israeli hand to tamper with the sanctities and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Haniyeh described what the settlers have done recently, especially in Bab al-Amud, as an attempt to control the Al-Aqsa Mosque and isolate Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa from its Arab and Islamic surroundings.
He said that what happened and is happening in Jerusalem dropped several theories, as the theory of normalization fell under these Almoravids, and Dayton’s theory also dropped the theory of the new Palestinian who recognizes the entity and accepts to waive its rights.
He added, “Our people in Jerusalem have also dropped the bet theory on negotiations. Negotiations from a position of weakness have a painful result. If you want to be strong in politics, you must be strong in the field.”
