In the past there was a difference between the conditions in which Hizballah operated in Lebanon and the conditions of resistance operated in Palestine.
The Palestinian situation is different. We can have military cooperation with other factions in the Palestinian territories. But we cannot have this with Hizbullah in Lebanon.
History has proven that the PLO and its sectors suffered great damage when walking the way of harming Zionist interests in other countries around the world.
There are perhaps opportunities for greater political cooperation, at least more cooperation than exists now. But there can be no cooperation in the field because every situation is different.
The current stage does not allow the entrance of everyone into a military conflict, however everyone must be ready for the day in which it might take place, as the Zionist enemy is planning to attack our people and to control our land once again.
Sons of Islam everywhere, the jihad is a duty – to establish the rule of Allah on earth and to liberate your countries and yourselves from America’s domination and its Zionist allies, it is your battle – either victory or martyrdom.
The Hamas has taken the path of avoiding causing harm to Zionist interests outside of Palestine, not from weakness or lack of ability to do so, but because Hamas does not wish for further fronts to be opened against it around the world.
We did not fight the Americans or the Europeans. We fight only the Israeli enemy that took our homes and homeland.
However, the resources at our people’s disposal are very few and we require assistance from the neighboring Arab countries, and for weapons in order to fight the enemy.
There are many resistance movements in the world, like the IRA for instance. But it is only Islamic resistance movements that are put on the terrorist list. This is what I am saying.
We wish that all countries around the world honor our wishes and our Jihad, and we avoid interfering in their business.
Hamas’ battle is against the Zionist occupation in the Palestinian land. Hamas has no desire to change its battlefield.
There are house demolitions and destruction all over the West Bank and Gaza. Just yesterday in Gaza they demolished three towers under the pretext that they were built close to a settlement.
If it is in the interest of the Palestinian people to have a hudna, we’ll have a hudna. If it isn’t, we won’t.
Where are the Muslim people’s sponsors? Where are its kings? Where are its leaders? The Muslim people is calling upon you, Jerusalem is appealing to you, will anyone answer?
The attacks inside Israel are operations we carry out in response to Israeli crimes against our people.
Days will prove that the assassination policy will not finish the Hamas. Hamas leaders wish to be martyrs and are not scared of death. Jihad will continue and the resistance will continue until we have victory, or we will be martyrs.
It is an exaggeration to call the Hamas and Islamic Jihad announcement a military alliance. It is rather a message that our people are united in the face of Israeli aggression.
Since Israel does not differentiate between attacking this group or that, we are saying our people can work individually or collectively to face this aggression.
