Hamas: Bush’s visit is blatant defiance of the Palestinian people’s feelings

The Hamas Movement stated that the visit of US president George Bush to the occupied Palestinian lands on the sixtieth anniversary of the Nakab of Palestine is blatant defiance of the feelings of the Palestinian people and a continuation of blind support for the racist project..

In a press statement received by the PIC, Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, underscored the American blessing of the idea of a Jewish state on the ruins of Palestinian dreams of justice is a strong blow to all believers in the option of regaining Palestinian rights through negotiations and normalization with Israel.

The spokesman also underlined that Bush’s visit is not welcome and a bad omen for the Palestinian people, pointing out that Hamas do not pin any hopes that such visit will bring justice to the Palestinian cause, but rather it expects that the visit will be followed by further Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people and their holy shrines. ** Source: palestine-info centre
