Hamas Condemns Bahrain Conference

March in London on the anniversary of the Nakba

A HIGH–RANKING member of the Islamic resistance movement, Hamas, said yesterday that the Palestinian nation vigorously rejects US President Donald Trump’s controversial proposal for ‘peace’ between the Israeli regime and Palestinians, dubbed ‘the deal of the century.’

‘We will not accept solutions that violate our rights … The deal of century is aimed at liquidating the Palestinian cause and dropping central issues like al-Quds (Jerusalem) and return of (Palestinian) refugees,’ Izzat al-Risheq said during a meeting between a Hamas delegation and Lebanese Prime Minister Sa’ad al-Hariri in Beirut.

Hamas says Palestinians will not allow anyone to relinquish or trade their cause during a US-led conference in Bahrain next month.

Separately, member of the Hamas political bureau, Husam Badran, has described a US-led conference in Bahrain next month in support of Washington’s so-called Middle East peace plan as a plot in coordination with the occupying Israeli regime to liquidate the Palestinian cause.

Badran said in a tweet that the Palestinian people are united in their rejection of the deal of the century as it only ‘serves the interests of Israel.’

A Jordanian political party has called on the government not to participate in the upcoming American-led conference on Palestinians in Bahrain.

‘We are a nation under occupation, and our cause is aimed at national liberation and self-determination. Attempts to whitewash the Israeli occupation through economic solutions will not pass. We will remain loyal to the martyrs and the suffering of prisoners,’ Badran pointed out.
