Mishaal: Obama is unable to fulfill his promises to the Palestinians

DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mishaal stated Friday that the administration of US president Barack Obama, which failed to fulfill its promises to the Palestinian people at the apex of its power, is today more powerless to do anything for them after it lost its majority control of the congress in the mid-term elections.

Mishaal made his remarks in a ceremony held by Islamic Jihad Movement on the anniversary of its inception in Damascus.

The Hamas leader criticized what he called the policy of waiting for Obama’s administration to do something for the Palestinians, especially after what happened to it in the elections, describing it as the policy of the weak and defeatist people.

“We say to the American administration that we are not waiting for you. We, the resistance factions and forces, have a clear vision, the land is ours, Jerusalem is ours, Palestine is ours and the resistance is our option; we will fulfill our promise with our hand and weapon, with putting our trust in God not in America,” the Hamas official emphasized.

“The negotiations are a very failed option having no prospect or future. Can anyone expect anything from Netanyahu? The Zionist entity, which was established on killing, appropriating the [Palestinian] land and displacing the people, has a racist mentality, and negotiations with it are impossible,” he stressed further.

For his part, secretary-general of Islamic Jihad movement Dr. Ramdan Shallah affirmed in his speech that the resistance has been the most important achievement in the history of the Palestinian people since the 1948 Nakba (catastrophe) and it is far beyond doubting its legitimacy.

Shallah called on Fatah leaders to follow at least the approach of late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat, who died while under siege by the Israeli occupation forces, or to step down if they are not strong enough to adopt the option of resistance.
