Haneyya: Jerusalem Intifada has more to accomplish
Deputy Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haneyya said Jerusalem Intifada has more to accomplish in light of Israeli admitting of the long lasting period of the ongoing uprising and their acknowledgement of the need of many options to deal with it.
In his participation in the scholars’ forum organized by Palestine Scholars Association and the World Federation of Muslim Scholars in Gaza on Saturday, Haneyya pointed out that the intifada achieved significant accomplishments including the cancellation of the theory of adaptation with the Israeli occupation.
The Hamas senior official Haneyya stressed the failure of the theories of security coordination and the economic peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The Jerusalem Intifada has also proved the failure of the Israeli theory of deterrence through over 87 anti-occupation operations implemented in the West Bank and Occupied Jerusalem; yet, it has more to accomplish, he highlighted.
Haneyya called for unity in the region and exerting efforts for the liberation of Palestine and hailed the role of Muslim scholars in uniting the nation for this sake. On the other hand, He slammed the pro-Israel statements of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
