Head of the political bureau of the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas” Ismail Haniyeh, has called upon the Palestinian people, Arab and Islamic nations to launch a new uprising and resist the Israeli Occupation in response to Trump’s announcement of recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist Occupation.
In a televised speech on Thursday, Haniyeh said, “Let tomorrow be a day of rage and the beginning of an effective uprising very much like the previous one that was ignited by our people in Jerusalem”.
He stressed the ability of the Palestinian people to confront the unjust American decision.
Haniyeh also called for the establishment of a national strategy to confront the on-going conspiracy against Jerusalem and Palestine, calling for an urgent Arab and Islamic summit to face the US decision.
Hamas’s Chief leader stressed that the city of Jerusalem is a unified Palestinian capital that can’t be divided, reiterating Hamas’s position of not recognizing the legitimacy of the Zionist entity on the land of Palestine.
Arrangement of the Palestinian scene
Haniyeh called for the need to arrange the Palestinian affairs and priorities in the face of this plot and the flagrant decision, calling on the Palestinian Authority to declare the end of the process of settlement and decomposition of this Convention.
“I say to the Authority, there must be a clear and unambiguous decision to get out of the dark chapters of the Oslo Accord”.
Haniyeh called for speeding up the steps of reconciliation and national unity, calling for an urgent Palestinian meeting to face Trump’s latest decision and re-establish the PLO to confront the occupation and the unjust US political decisions towards Jerusalem and Palestine.
“ The Palestinian Authority must immediately lift the imposed sanctions on our people in the Gaza Strip and terminate security collaborations with the Israeli Occupation to pave way for armed resistance in the West Bank in response to this provocative decision”.
The Arab nation
Haniyeh called on the Arab and Islamic nations to confront this decision and support the Palestinian cause in its struggle for freedom.
He also demanded that nations in the region – in the face of this strategic challenge that threatens the status of Jerusalem – to stop the conflicts and reduce tensions and gather support for Jerusalem and the Palestinian people, and boycott the US administration in light of its complicity in depriving Palestinians of their rights.
“Arab normalization with the Israeli Occupation gave the US administration much needed support to carry out this malicious plot”.
Haniyeh praised the invitation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to hold an urgent Islamic summit to face the unjust American decision.
In his televised statement, Haniyeh also announced that the following days will be met with angry mass protests in order to transfer the Palestinian struggle to a new decisive phase.
He added that our people and factions of the resistance are closely observing the new developments in order to address this strategic threat that threatens the city of Jerusalem.
In conclusion of his speech, the Hamas leader stressed that the his movement’s struggle is solely with the Israeli occupation, and that its weapons will only be directed towards the occupation.
