Haniyeh in Egypt: Hamas Presence with Brotherhood Threatens Israel

 Comment:

Haniyeh described Hamas as the
“jihadi movement of the Brotherhood with a Palestinian face.”

I don’t think heniya did well in describing Hamas as the “jihadi movement of the Brotherhood with a Palestinian face.” because its a known fact and will neither confuse or frieghten Israel.

Haniya statement may have pleased his guide but shall backfire and and will hurt the image of Hamas, who staved all the time to pose as an independent Palestinian resisrance movement with an Isalmic face, not as a MB’s tool. It will justify and give credibilety to Mubarak’s accusations and actions, that Hamas is not threatening Egypt’s security, and not interfering in Egypt’s matters.

In a speech marking the first anniversary of Operation Cast Lead, Ismail Haniyyeh turned to the air force hero (Mubarak was the commander of the Egyptian Air Force during the Yom Kippur War) and told him, “We are not threatening Egypt’s security, we are not interfering in Egypt’s matters, and we were forced to use the tunnels as an exceptional default option due to the situation we were pushed into.”  

Moreover, if i am in Mr. Haniya’s shoes,

  • I should have remmebered that, on ground and during the hard time, the real supporters of Hamas were Iranian brothers and Syrian SECULAR brothers.
  • I should consider, MB are not Egypt, and if MB’s support is Guranteed, what’s the wisdom in losing the support of MB’s rivals, Copts, lefts, nationalist, and librals?
  • I should consider that such statement, though its true, shall cast real doubts on Hamas claining that Palestinian reconciliation is a stratigic aim.
  • I should have considered, the impact of such statement on Hamas relations with Syria, unless Hamas is so sure that their Syrian brothers are comming, and that their brothers in Egypt, Tunis and Libya shall stay in power until judgement day.
  • I should consider its impact on people supporting Hamas as an armed resintance movement devoted for liberation of all palestine.

Haniyeh in Egypt: Hamas Presence with Brotherhood Threatens Israel

Head of Hamas in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh discussed Mideast politics with the Leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which is emerging as the biggest winner in the first parliamentary elections after Mubarak’s ouster.

Haniyeh is on a first trip to Egypt outside the blockaded strip since Hamas came to power in 2007.

“The Brotherhood centre has always embraced issues of liberation, foremost the Palestinian issue,” Mohammed Badie, brotherhood leader, said on Monday after meeting the Hamas leader at the group’s newly inaugurated headquarters in a Cairo suburb, according to Egypt’s state news agency MENA.

He added that Hamas has served as a role model to the Brotherhood in its reconciliation with the Fatah movement and in closing the recent prisoner swap deal with the Israeli enemy.

Hamas presence with brotherhood threatens Israel

Haniyeh described Hamas as the “jihadi movement of the Brotherhood with a Palestinian face.” He said his visit to the Brotherhood center would confuse and frighten ‘Israel’.

Haniyeh said during his visit to the Arab League that reconciliation with Fatah is a “strategic” matter that should not be hindered by American and Israeli objections. Israel has said the closer Fatah gets to Hamas, the further it moves from a so-called failed “peace deal”.

Mashaal: The internal division is a burden on all Palestinian factions

[ 27/12/2011 – 11:07 AM ]

DOHA, (PIC)– Head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mashaal said the inter-Palestinian division has become a heavy burden on everyone and there is real need for the national reconciliation.

In a political TV show on Al-Jazeera channel on Monday, Mashaal stated that some regional circumstances like the persistent US bias in favor of Israel and the preoccupation of Arabs with their uprisings and political changes prompted the Palestinian parties to necessarily rearrange their internal situation and move to end the national rift.

He noted that a kind of harmony and understanding started to emerge between him and de facto president Mahmoud Abbas when they met currently and last month and discussed many issues related to the national reconciliation.

Stating his opinion on the Arab spring, Mashaal said the great Arab awakening is certainly a gain for All Arab nations especially the Palestinians.

With regard to the popular resistance, Mashaal stated that this kind of resistance was approved unanimously by all Hamas leaders, but he said his Movement keeps all options open.
