GAZA, (PIC)– Gaza prime minister Ismail Haneyya highlighted in a speech Sunday three signs indicating victory for the Palestinians is near, especially with the continued changes sweeping the Arab world.

The premier also laid out a platform based on three pillars aimed at helping Palestinians to achieve liberation.

The speech came after dawn prayers at the Omari mosque in Gaza marking the 63rd anniversary of the Nakba.

The first sign that Palestine will be liberated is the signing of the reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah, parties that separately governed a split Palestine, Haneyya said.

”Weakness is in our division and discord,” he said.

”Today we we are armed with the beginning of unity, reconciliation, and coexistence between people of different political programs. This opens up good prospects and is very important,” he said.

The second sign is the changes and revolutions sweeping the Arab world, he said, adding that such transformations produce regimes tied with the people’s will. These revolutions will have an influence on the Palestinian cause, he went on to say.

“We live in one of these signs of victory in changing the methodology of [the Arabs and Muslims] and their rejection of tyranny and inclination to the cause and the Quran.”

As for the third sign ahead of Israel’s downfall, Haneyya said that the Palestinians have become more and more aware of the situation. He pointed out that those who launched the first intifadas were born during the Israeli occupation.

Several initiatives to promote the Palestinian cause have been made in European countries in the last year, the premier said detailing several events in Germany, England, and more that had large turnouts.

“We look with satisfaction at unified marches in West Bank cities, and we would like more, and [we would also like] the release of he political prisoners so we can get a steady pace without disruption to achieve reconciliation.”

The premier laid out a platform to be followed in order to achieve liberation. It included three pillars: unifying the reference for Palestinian leadership by restructuring the PLO, preserving Palestinian unity, and relying on the Arabs and Muslims for assistance in the struggle.

“Our people have offered a model of fighters and those who carry the Quran and the rifle…The day the youth carry the rifle in one hand and the Quran in the other they have worked wonders and forced the enemy to admit defeat.”

“Jihad started in the mosques, and there is no jihad without sacrifices and blood, and no freedom without sacrifices; our people have not hesitated to pay the bill of sacrifices.”

He emphasized speaking at the mosque that there is no return to Palestine without first returning to Allah, and no return to Jaffa, Lod, and Safad without returning to the shadows of the mosques and the Quran.

“We will never recognize the [Israeli occupier]…There is no relinquishing the resistance program as the basic platform to achieve liberation…We will not relinquish the prisoners cause, and we will hold fast to all demands of the resistance in order to attain your freedom.”

“Victory is coming. Your state is coming. And the refugees will return, and the occupation will reach its demise.”
