Hamas Vows to Foil Trump’s Deal of Century


A senior Hamas official described US President Donald Trump’s proposed ‘Deal of the Century’ plan for Palestine as a Zionist plot, promising that the resistance movement will thwart it.

“The main core of this plan is the Sykes-Pico (an agreement of 1916 which led to partition of Turkish-held Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine into various French and British mandates). The Palestinian nation and Gaza resistance will foil it and the Deal of the Century will not succeed under any conditions,” Osama Hamdan was quoted as saying by Quds Press news website on Sunday.

He asked all the Islamic Ummah to adopt rapid measures to defuse the attempts to take control of the holy Quds city from the Muslims.

“The Deal of the Century is a Zionist plot to hit a blow to the Islamic Ummah, and Hamas will defuse this plot,” Hamdan said.

His remarks came as Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani warned that implementation of Trump’s Deal of the Century plot in the Palestinian territories will create new conflicts and clashes in the region.

“Apparently, the disgraceful Deal of the Century promised by Mr. Trump has shown its ugly face and this amateur decision will be the start of a series of conflicts in the region,” Larijani said, addressing an open session of the Iranian parliament in Tehran on Sunday.

He said that even the US allies have blasted this move, and added, “The Palestinian nation and the regional nations will not allow the impudent Zionists to foment chaos in the region again.”

Larijani underlined that the Iranian parliament condemns the “racist” measure, and called on the international bodies, specially the Islamic Inter-Parliamentary Union, to adopt the necessary measures as soon as possible to confront this plot.

Also, last Monday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that the US dreams to implement the ‘deal of the century’ plot in the Palestinian territories would never come true, stressing that Quds would remain the Palestinians’ capital forever.

“Now, the Americans have named their satanic policy on Palestine as the deal of the century and with God’s help, this deal of the century will never be materialized and despite the American statesmen’s desire, the Palestinian issue will not be forgotten and Quds will remain as the Palestinians’ capital,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing officials of the Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization in Tehran.

He blasted certain Muslim governments for assisting Washington in implementing its plots against the region, and said, “The Islamic Ummah and the Palestinian nation will gain victory against their enemies and will see the day when the fake Zionist regime will be uprooted in the Palestinian territories.”

In relevant remarks in September 2015, Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei described Israel as a “fake” regime, and said there would not be any Israel in 25 years from now.

“Some of the Zionists have said that given the results of the nuclear negotiations (between Tehran and the world powers), they have been relieved of concerns about Iran for 25 years, but we tell them that basically, you will not see the next 25 years and with God’s grace, nothing under the name of the Zionist regime will exist in the region by then,” Supreme Leader said, addressing a large number of Iranians in Tehran.

Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei added that the heroic spirit and morale of Muslim fighters would not let the Zionists feel comfort and tranquility in the next 25 years.
