GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – A Hamas spokesman said Sunday there have been no new developments in the ceasefire talks in Cairo.

Fawzi Barhoum told Ma’an that Hamas delivered on Saturday a list of demands to the Arab League, Qatar and Turkey.

“When we rejected the Egyptian ceasefire initiative, that didn’t mean we reject an Egyptian role. It is actually in our interest that Egypt plays a powerful and effective role in the equation, that insures respect to the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.”

He added that a ceasefire which doesn’t meet the Palestinian resistance’s terms and doesn’t respond to the expectations of the Palestinian people won’t be dealt with, “regardless of who suggests to broker it.”

Speaking about the “massacre” Israeli forces committed in the Shujaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City. Barhoum called it a war crime at all levels. He said the majority of victims were children, women and elderly people.

Barhoum added that “if Gaza hadn’t been under crippling siege, and if the Rafah crossing hadn’t been closed, and if Arab and European countries hadn’t colluded, and if the Americans hadn’t supported the Israeli occupation, it (Israel) wouldn’t have dared to commit such a massacre.”

He added that despite everything, the Palestinian resistance would continue to defend the Palestinian people and their holy places.

“We won’t surrender, nor shall we be broken or defeated, and instead we will go ahead as we have taken an irrevocable decision to resist.”

Boo hoo, everyone is against Hamas. When will Palestinains ever take responsibility for the bad choices they and their leaders have made since 1947. During that period Israel had built up a vibrant, democratic and prosperous country while the Palestinians have done nothing but perfect a culture of death and self pity.

To Israel, it doesn't matter if Hamas is there or not. Zionism's aim is to expand & expel/drive ALL Palestinians OUT, whether they(even babies in the womb)support Hamas,or not. "Hamas" is just the umbrella excuse to eethnically cleanse anyone who WILL NOT accept subjugation by Israeli-aparthied "masters"&just exist as yiked &shackled serfs! SCREW THAT.Even those Pals in (pre-67) Israel,WB & E/J will be next on expulsion,segregation &missile hit-list.Even Israel's "good Arabs" will get it next!

Cont:Remember,either way,Absolutist Zionism means Pluralistic Palestine to LOSE! USG & its clients ALL IGNORE the INTERNATIONAL MANDATORY-RESPONCE SOS(SaveOurSouls)calls & the "MayDay! MayDay!"internationally-recognized emergency-distress calls coming from Gaza &Palestine for so long(67YRS)! That's MURDER by intentioned ignorance.So(using an old phrase);if Hamas/Palestinians are in a bad situation of 'Da*ned if you DON'T(resist) and da*ned if you DO(resist)'? GO FOR THE DO(resist),all the way!!

While contemplation of anything worse than this existing genocide seems near impossible, try to imagine the future effects of the bought-and-paid-for politicians in the west after elections. We can see signs of it now. See Clinton's (each of them!) remarks and note the supporters. How can any sane person believe the leaders of any ME group, Hamas, Fatah, assorted Jihadis, etc., is able to control those driven to madness from years of horrific oppression by the Zionazis.
