I’ve only seen this mentioned in the JPost, so will have to wait for confirmation from Arab sources, but this makes what we’ve known for a while official: Hamas has given up armed resistance in return for power. This is the New (old) MIddle East. Security of the zionist enemy, in return for money and power. And all under the banner of ‘There is no god but Allah’.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said over the weekend that he was in favor of a peaceful and popular resistance and that he and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal have reached agreement on the need for a peaceful intifada.
