Official: Egypt never asked Hamas to quit armed struggle

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egypt has not asked Hamas to abandon its armed struggle against Israel, a spokesman for the party said Thursday.

"Hamas will not leave the armed struggle, and will not respond to this fabricated news," Salah al-Bardawil told Ma'an.

Israel's Ynet news reported Thursday that Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood leadership had asked Hamas to "implement jihad in other ways" in order to gain international legitimacy.

"The Egyptian leadership knows quite well that it is unacceptable to ask the Palestinian people to abandon their key tool to defeat the occupation," al-Bardawil said.

The Hamas spokesman said there was a media campaign in Egypt and Israel to attack the leadership in Cairo and Gaza. The Egyptian opposition wants to undermine the Muslim Brotherhood by portraying Hamas as a burden to Egypt's security, he said.

In February, Egypt began flooding and sealing smuggling tunnels under its border with the Gaza Strip. Cairo said it was cutting arms smuggling that was destabilizing the Sinai peninsula, but it also cut a lifeline to the enclave's blockaded residents.

Al-Bardawil said the tunnel network was a response to exceptional circumstances due to Israel's blockade, but insisted it did not undermine Egypt's security.

Hamas seeks to preserve Egypt's security as it maintains Palestine's security, he added.

Even if
- "Egypt asked HAMAS to quit armed struggle against Israel", or the
- USA asked Israel to return to the 1949/1967 Armistice/"Border" lines,
they WILL REJECT SURRENDER FOREVER, SO
THERE WILL NEVER BE A PEACE/STATEHOOD SOLUTION.

Fabricated hypocrisy !! Israel's newspapers are all replete with propaganda and twisted truth for their own benefit. BUT Despite of attempted propaganda. The Palestinians have every right in this world to defend themselves with all force and I hope they will continue to do so.

If we gave Hamas more long range missles, thier diplomacy program would work much better, Israel only laughs becuase they have rocks, get some long range missles (ones that can reach telaviv) and there would be different kind of negotiations going on... real ones. Zionists seem to only understand Hitler type draconian measures, it is basically what they are doing to the pals over a extended time period.

Is there anyone who can stop Israel stopping the war crime against palestininas?? As the bloody united nations should be resolved as they are useless and no one takes them serious.

7- Jewish "armed struggle" worked against British foreigners, but it will NOT work against people who are more indigenous than Pals, who are connected by their kings, patriarchs, holy books, and God's promise !! 8- Yes, there are states more powerful than Israel, but - None more powerful in the Middle East region, and certainly - None that will fight with Israel over Palestinians, and besides - All "the war crimes" are being committed BY Palestinians !!!

10 ) @ One Day #4 / PEACE OR FOREVER

Israel will Neither do as you say ("turn Gaza into a parking lot), Nor start acting like Arabs by murdering civilians by the 1,000s, But it will allow Gaza to remain like this forever, or until Gaza accepts a final peace agreement - WHICH EVER COMES FIRST !!

@8: are you really scottish? What language are you speaking? The verb "stopping" in your first sentence simply makes no sense. Resolved? I presume you mean disolved. And it shoukd be "seriously", not "serious". Really the level of education in the UK is shockingly low, as is also evidenced by the substance, so called, of your comments. Or are you German Klaus?

# 9 - so much BS you write. Who was there before the Jews wandered in? # 1 - can you only pick holes in the grammar used by Klaus77 - that means you don't take issue with the core of his statement. BTW if you ever went to law school you would learn that resorting to ridicule or abuse (not to mention racism) shows you have already lost the argument. #10 - Gaza to accept a peace agreement? What, like the one last year which Israel has breached daily, even to the point of several murders?

To one day #4 'WILL ELECT A LEASER THAT WILL TURN GAZA INTO A PARKING LOT IN 24 HOURS JUST YOU WATCH!!' My. I assume you mean 'leader.' Assuming you do that, that'll indeed be the end for Gaza -- and the end for you. Ardently as you may wish to emulate your Nazi predecessors, I assure you it wouldn't be a good idea.

To Gabi #12 ' Who was there before the Jews wandered in? ' It's kind of a moot point. 'The Jews' didn't practice anything anyone would recognize as Judaism when they 'wandered in,' and the descendants of those 'Jews' are today mostly 'Palestinians' in any case. #9 et al are largely the descendents of converts, and have far closer ethnic ties to Poland, Yemen, Spain, or wherever than Palestine. Look at Netanyahu. He's a Pole. Look at Yishai. He's a Tunisian.

To Klaus77 #8: 'Is there anyone who can stop Israel stopping the war crime against palestininas?? ' We all can stop it. All we need to do is to do to Israel what we did to South Africa. This crap goes on exactly as long as we permit it to go on.
