GAZA, (PIC)-- The Hamas Movement stated Wednesday that the speech which US president Barack Obama intends to deliver to the Muslim world in Cairo would be judged through his seriousness about supporting the justice of the Palestinian cause and respecting the Palestinian people’s choices and will.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said, in a statement received by the PIC, that Obama’s wishes to establish a Palestinian state and stop settlement activities are insufficient and unworkable in light of the escalating Zionist attacks on the Palestinian people, their land and holy shrines.

Spokesman Barhoum called on Obama to adopt new effective policies to counter Israel’s arrogance and its grave racist policies against the Palestinians, and to have positions matching with the size of the Palestinian people’s suffering and going in line with their aspirations for liberation and better life.

In the same context, MP Mushir Al-Masri, the secretary-general of Hamas parliamentary bloc, downplayed the importance of Obama’s visit to the region or its ability to make a real breakthrough in the peace process.

MP Masri warned of any attempt to make the Palestinian-Israeli conflict summarized in only the issue of ending the Israeli settlement expansion as a prelude to make Arabs and Muslims normalize relations with Israel. 

In a statement to the Quds Press news agency, the lawmaker called on the American administration to stop its bias towards Israel and to be open to the Palestinian democracy
