In March 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu, raising his fist proclaimed that a Palestinian state will be established only on his dead body.
Last month, Israeli tanks shelled northern part of Gaza Strip following a claim by the Israel Occupation Force (IOF) that a rocket was fired from the Palestinian enclave toward the Jewish ‘promised land’.
While all this is happening, Israeli newspaper, Ha’aretz, reported on May 1, that Netanyahu regime is holding ‘secret talks’ with the Islamists ruling Gaza Strip, to hammer-out a long term ceasefire.
The purpose of this ‘ceasefire’ (3-5 years) will enable Netanyahu to wash his hands off the blood of 1200 Palestinian civilians including 534 children during last year’s Israeli assault on Gaza.
“It will help (Netanyahu) him to portray last Summer war on Gaza as an ‘achievement’ instead of a controversial failure to disarm Hamas,” wrote Amos Harel.
Alex Fishman at the daily YNet caught a big fish on April 26. He claimed that Israeli airstrikes in response to rocket fire was mainly aimed at hitting the headlines (an not bombing some school full of Palestinian children). Why? Because Israeli government and Israeli military are holding ‘direct and indirect talks’ with Hamas to conclude a long-term ceasefire.
Dr. Yaron Friedman, however, let us have a peek in Netanyahu’s brain. According the ‘senior analyst’, Hamas became weak when it changed its alliance from Iran to Qatar over Syria. However, since the Israeli proxy ISIS has committed a second Nakba in Yarmouk, the Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Damascus last month, Hamas is trying to renew its old friendship with Iran and Hizbullah – which is not good for Israel. Furthermore, Friedman claims that Iran has established its own Shia proxy in the West Bank, the Harakat as-Sabeereen Natzran Le-Palastin (The Patient Ones’ Movement for the Liberation of Palestine).
“Despite its attempt to deny it, the group is affiliated with a radical sect of Shiite Islam, unlike the majority of Gaza which is predominantly Sunni. Thus, it seems Iran has already selected its choice to replace Hamas. As much as Hesn grows, the pro-Shiite forces in northern Gaza will grow accordingly,” claims Friedman.
I guess, Friedman never heard of Islamic Jihad, which played a major role during Israel’s 50-day war on Gaza Strip. Islamic Jihad never abandoned its ties with Iran or Hizbullah. Its leaders have never stopped visiting Tehran and Beirut since Khaled Meshaal left Damascus and took residence in Qatar over three years ago.
The Jewish Newsweek, has reported that Qatar and EU are proposing a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in order to keep Hamas out of Iranian influence. If Hamas leadership is smart, it should learn from its past mistakes. Both Qatar and European Union are no different than Mahmoud Abbas. They all want Palestinians to believe they never had a homeland.
A delegation headed by the PLO Executive Committee Member and Head of the PLO Department for Refugee Affairs Zakria al-Agha is already in Damascus to discuss with Syrian authorities to disarm PLF militia in al-Yarmouk camp so that Palestinian refugees are not dragged into Syrian conflict by the Al-Nusra or ISIL terrorist insurgency.
In late August 2014, the Jewish media reported Israel and PA president have reached a long-term ceasefire, which was projected as being blessed by Hamas that was not invited to the so-called ‘ceasefire negotiations’.
Hamas leaders in Gaza have refuted media reports on the so-called ‘secret talks’.
On May 2, the Times of Israel reported former US president Jimmy Carter said: Hamas leaders are committed to peace, but Netanyahu is not.
I bet my Canadian dollar this ‘smoking gun’ is another Zionist media ploy to discredit Hamas in the eyes of Arab population, and project PA president Mahmoud Abbas: Israel’s man in Ramallah, as the only negotiating partner with the Zionist entity.
