Hamas movement will not leave government prematurely
"Bethlehem – Ma'an – The Hamas movement on Thursday assured that it would remain in the unity government, excluding the idea of a potential withdrawal from power and a return to opposition.
The spokesperson of Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum, stated "Hamas entered the political process with a political vision, based on enhancing rights and preserving the unchangeable principles."
He told Ma'an via telephone: "Hamas supports the unity government because it represents the majority of the Palestinian people. We are now fighting a battle for the unchangeable principles, and for that very reason, the government is besieged. Hamas entered the government to stay, rather than to leave, and it will remain steadfast until the embargo is lifted, and until the Palestinian government is accepted by the international community."
With respect to the Cairo talks, Barhoum revealed, "Hamas has its own vision for political partnership, having control over domestic affairs, ending the state of chaos and rearranging the security services, which are, in the most part, affiliated to outside organizations."
The Hamas spokesperson criticized the declarations of the Deputy Prime Minister, about "having no intention to rearrange the security services". Barhoum said, "Many of Al-Ahmad's declarations are confused.""
The stupid "government" doesn't even speak with one voice! The "deputy PM" contradicts and fights the "PM"! Dissolve this disgrace and stop this vaudeville show, it is not even funny.
