Obama's statements on the situation in Gaza are formal and have no sense

GAZA (Islam Times) - Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, the spokesman of the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas”, said that Obama's statements regarding that the situation in Gaza is no longer acceptable are formal statements having no sense. In fact, they come in the context of the American policy to improve the image of the siege imposed on Gaza and to keep it imposed in practice. Islam Times Correspondent in Gaza stated that Abu Zuhri stressed in a statement that the 400 million dollars sent to Gaza and mentioned by Obama are but a fake account of money. This comes because if the said amount was really sent to Gaza, Ramallah’s authority would receive it and would thus not send any of it to Gaza. Therefore, we do not find anything new in Obama’s statements, because in practice the American position is based on legitimizing the Israeli siege and preventing any international initiative aiming at ending it. We in the Hamas movement do believe that Abbas' statements regarding that he is adherent to have negotiations with the Zionist occupation is faithless to the Palestinian people in light of the massacre of the Freedom Flotilla and the continuous crimes of the occupation. In fact, this improves the image of the occupation and gives it an opportunity to continue in its criminal policies. In the same context, we believe that Abbas' call for reconciliation aims indeed at covering those negative and degrading positions.
