palestine_hamas_victory_ipe_20070115Hamas movement described the results of the students’ elections in the Najah university in Nablus as a victory for the Islamic bloc after six years of boycott.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, said on Wednesday that winning 33 seats against 43 seats for the Fatah-affiliated bloc reflected growing popularity for the Islamic bloc that has been absent from those elections for six years.

He said that the result pointed to the failure of the policy of persecution on the part of both the PA security apparatuses and the Israeli occupation.

“This is a message to all those who bet on the failure of Hamas and those who try to smear its image and to isolate it from the people,” he added.

The spokesman congratulated the Islamic bloc on behalf of Hamas on what he described as a “big victory”.
