GAZA, (PIC)-- Dr. Salah Al-Bardawil, the spokesman for Hamas parliamentary bloc, stated Wednesday that Egypt invited the Movement to discuss the field developments in the West Bank on 28 of June as well as the results reached by the committees formed to follow up the political arrest file in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
In a press release, Dr. Bardawil said that all issues on the Egyptian agenda would be linked to the political arrest file.
He noted that the delegation of Hamas would be headed like previously by Dr. Mousa Abu Marzouk, Hamas's deputy political bureau chairman, and Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, political bureau member, in addition to other senior officials.
In another context, Dr. Bardawil highlighted during a political symposium held Tuesday that Hamas would not yield to any political blackmail regarding the Palestinian constants despite all pressures and threats, adding that this is its strategic decision.
The Hamas official and lawmaker affirmed that the coming speech of Khaled Mishaal, the head of Hamas political bureau, would emphasize and remind the world of the Palestinian constants in light of the recent political developments.
The lawmaker added that Mishaal’s speech would address the risk of liquidating the Palestinian cause, especially after the PA in Ramallah did not deplore Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech except with emotional expressions and did not stop its security collaboration with the Israeli occupation in the West Bank.
The lawmaker noted that former US president Jimmy Carter, during his last visit to Gaza, told Hamas to help him assist the new US president Barack Obama to overcome the Zionist lobby and achieve his policy through recognizing Israel and the international quartet’s unjust terms.
He revealed that Carter gave Hamas a letter in this regard and asked it to sign it in order to send it to Obama’s envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell who in turn would hand it to Obama.
“Mitchell is on pins and needles waiting for me, and if he did not receive this letter, I think your fate will be very, very difficult; even if there was election, you would not be allowed to take part…I am so sad for that…I do not want so, but the decision is not in my hands,” Dr. Bardawil quoted Carter as saying.
“The game is clear: Obama has started it, Netanyahu is investing it and Carter is playing in networking relations and taking advantage of direct reactions practically,” the Hamas lawmaker opined.
The MP underscored that Obama, in his speech, played in an empty area unrelated to politics and political decisions leaving the game court for Netanyahu to illustrate the picture more clearly by denying all the Palestinian people’s rights.
Bardawil highlighted that his Movement is not afraid of the coming dangers, saying that Hamas has options and the decisive criterion for that is its steadfastness and its ability to maintain the national constants.
