Haniyeh: No one can stop this intifada

“No power in the world” can stop the “intifada”, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh declared on Sunday, according to Ma’an news agency.

Speaking at a demonstration in Beirut, Haniyeh said, “We are ready for political and popular unity at all levels and willing to agree on a united national strategy to protect the intifada, regain Palestinians’ rights, and adhere to the inalienable nationalistic principles.”

He added that national unity was “embodied today by Palestinian people in the field” and should be maintained and deepened at a political level.

“No power in the world will succeed in putting out the Al-Quds Intifada,” he declared, according to Ma’an.

“Some people thought that our people have tired from intifadas, revolutions and resistance, and even based their strategies on the thought that our people would not rise again. However, the Al-Quds Intifada came to thwart all their plans,” added Haniyeh.

The latest terror wave has been referred to by its inciters as the “Al-Quds Intifada” over a false claim that the Al-Quds Mosque on the Temple Mount is being harmed by Israel and Palestinian Arabs must respond.

Haniyeh last week released a call for all Palestinian Arabs to continue this “intifada”, saying in a speech that was recorded and played at a conference in Istanbul that “the knife of the intifada” defends the name of the Palestinian people and the Arab Islamic nation at its holy places, among them Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Hamas terror leader emphasized that the wave of terrorism will only escalate in force.

Hamas has continued to incite to terrorism against Israelis using both its educational institutions and official media outlets.
