Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the acting speaker of the Palestinian legislative council, has asserted that Palestinians would continue to trek the resistance path until all the Palestinian people"s demands in restoring usurped rights are realized.
Bahar, during a visit on Friday to family of Mohammed Al-Dhaif the general commander of the Qassam Brigades the armed wing of Hamas, said that Palestinian resistance would not give up its demands in return for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
"Despite three years of political and economic siege, assassinations and demolition of homes our people are still insisting on their constants and will never shun resistance," Bahar underlined.
He charged Fatah faction with lacking the real desire to end the inter-Palestinian rift, citing as proof its refusal to release the political detainees in the West Bank jails controlled by the Fatah-dominated Ramallah authority.
The acting speaker delivered the Friday Khutab (sermon) in Khan Younis and visited a number of homes of martyrs, notables and detainees.
