GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egypt's decision last week to ban the Hamas movement could lead to a new attack on Gaza by Israel's military, a Hamas official said Friday.

"We want calm, peace, and stability for Egypt, we want it's people to achieve the values of justice, freedom and equality and relinquish injustice. We don't want it to get involved in besieging Palestinians," Khalil al-Hayya said during a protest in front of the Egyptian embassy in Gaza.

Al-Hayya called on politicians and officials in Egypt to stop targeting Hamas and reiterated that the movement does not intervene in the internal affairs of any Arab nation.

"We are not ashamed of belonging to the (Muslim) Brotherhood school, but we are a Palestinian resistance movement and we did not interfere in any state.

"The profound relationship with Egypt cannot end by an unjust decision by a momentary court that did not take into account the depth of the relationship between the two peoples."

On Tuesday, an Egyptian court banned the activities of Hamas and ordered its assets seized.

Days later, Egypt's Day Seven news website reported that Egyptian authorities were planning to revoke the citizenship of 13,757 Hamas members for being "affiliated to an offshoot of the terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood."

Ties between Cairo and Hamas flourished during president Mohamed Morsi's year in power but have drastically deteriorated since a military coup in July last year which saw the Muslim Brotherhood leader ousted from power.

Cairo's new military-installed authorities launched a deadly crackdown on protests by supporters of Morsi, killing in excess of 1,400 people.

The Only Thing that "could lead to Israeli attack on Gaza"
is a Gaza threat to Israel.
However, Gaza has been attacking Egypt lately, and consequently
Egypt's "ban on Hamas may lead to" Egyptian attack on Gaza !!

No one, even Egypt, wants to have any business with Palestinian terrorists - Hamas must understand that.

"The profound relationship with Egypt cannot end by an unjust decision by a momentary court that did not take into account the depth of the relationship between the two peoples." The relationship between Gaza and Egypt is one of convenience ONLY. Egypt was saddled with Gaza after WW1 Since 1967 it has been convenient for Egypt not to have been responsible for Gaza anymore and it has been convenient for Egypt to suppress its people while the people focused their anger at Jews and Israelis.

Stay strong Hamas, being a Palestinian resistance movement & sharing the ideology of the (global) Muslim Brotherhood movement is nothing to be ashamed of. Egypt is in transition, having undergone a turbulent time, you are caught in the fall out, everyone is. We will all come through on the other side, in shah Allah. Focus on the positive aspects of moving forward, nothing stays the same. May Allah restore the bonds of brotherhood to us again & may He bless us ALL with peace, stability & freedom.
