Swiss expert: The western world went wrong when it boycotted Hamas governments
Swiss expert Gabriel Galis stated that the western world committed a mistake when it boycotted the two Palestinian governments formed after Hamas won elections, adding this aggravated the crises more in Palestine.
In a news conference held at the UN headquarters, Galis underlined that the Oslo agreement was no longer effective, pointing out that the Palestinians on the streets said that their pre-Oslo life was better than nowadays.
The conference, which was originally on the water crisis in Palestine, underscored that the Oslo agreement miserably failed to resolve any problem especially the water crisis.
In another context, the Hamas Movement deplored the fabricated story published on Wednesday in the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper about assaults on pilgrims and alleged accusations against Egypt, saying that the newspaper quoted such lies from the Fatah-affiliated Palestine TV without investigating the truth.
In a statement, Hamas called on the newspaper to apologize for the series of offensive remarks and lies published in its editorial.
Hamas also demanded the Egyptian government to put an end to the “Zionized trumpeters” who insult honorable Arab parties.
Hamas highlighted its strong relations with all Arab countries and its reluctance to engage in their internal affairs, rejecting at the same time such passive interference in the Palestinian affairs which could deepen the rift in the Palestinian arena.
