On Monday, Khaled Meshaal, the political head of Palestinian Islamic resistance Hamas ruling the besieged Gaza Strip, announced in Doha (Qatar) that his organization has modified its Founding Covenant 1988 and is now ready to accept an independent Palestinian state along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem its capital but without recognizing the Zionist entity.
“Without compromising its rejection of the Zionist entity – Hamas considers the establishment of a fully sovereign and independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem its capital along the lines of the 4th of June 1967, with the return of the refugees and displaced to their homes from which they were expelled, to be a formula of national consensus,” the document reads.
The changes also state that the conflict in Palestine is not religious but resistance against a Western colonial power.
“Hamas doesn’t wage a struggle against Israel because of its Jewish people but wages a struggle against the Zionists who occupy Palestine. Yet, it’s the Zionists who constantly identify Judaism and Jews with their own colonial projects and illegal entity,” said the document.
The Jewish media has blessed the modification in Hamas charter as moderate because now Hamas recognizes Israel within 1967 borders.
Hamas won first-ever free election held in Palestinian Territories in January 2006. It was monitored by United Nations and former US president Jimmy Carter. Hamas established a unity government in both Gaza and the west Bank but in June 2007, on the behest of US and Israel, Fatah fighters revolted against Hamas and took over government in the West Bank declaring its leader Mahmoud Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority (PA).
The Zionist regime imposed a military blockade on Gaza in 2007 which was joined by Egypt later under pressure from Washington.
Hamas leader Abd al-Aziz Rant-issi had made a similar offer to the Zionist regime in January 2004 in an interview with the UK’s newspaper The Guardian as part of ten-year ceasefire which was rejected by the Butcher of Beirut Ariel Sharon.
The new declaration brings Hamas closer to the 2002 Saudi Plan and Yasser Arafat’s Fatah party currently lead by a double agent Mahmoud Abbas with the exception of the recognition of the Zionist occupation of 78% of the historic Muslim Palestine.
Mahmoud Abbas finds his leadership threatened by Fatah leader Mourad Al-Barghouthy who is leading a 1000 Palestinian detainee hunger strikers demanding better human rights in Israeli prisons since April 17. In order to salvage his treason, he is seeking help from two Crypto Jews, Gen. al-Sisi of Egypt and the US president Donald Trump to push Benjamin Netanyahu to revive the dead 2-state proposal.
Abbas met Egyptian dictator on Monday ahead of his meeting with Donald Trump at the White House on May 3.
“Egypt supports Palestinians in establishing their independent state within the borders of June 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital,” said a statement from Egyptian presidential palace.
