Asia Middle East Forum

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — In his first speech at the new Head of the Hamas politburo, Ismail Haniyeh stressed that the Palestinian right of return, the liberation of Palestinian lands and holy sites, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital were non-negotiable rights.

Formerly the deputy head of Hamas’ politburo, Haniyeh was elected to replace Khalid Meshaal in the highest position in the Hamas movement in May.
Haniyeh said that Hamas would stand against any diplomatic deals that did not guarantee the historical rights of Palestinians.
He added that Hamas rejected terrorism, calling Islam the religion of coexistence and peace, and adding that the Palestinian resistance would fight “real terrorism” — the Israeli occupation.
Haniyeh cited Hamas’ new charter, stressing that Hamas was willing to work with all Palestinian political factions to carry out a political and resistance strategy in both internal and diplomatic Palestinian affairs.
