On Monday 21st December, Hamas’ deputy political bureau chief, Moussa Abu Marzouk, called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to hand the keys of the West Bank to Hamas.
Abu Marzouq statements came as a response to Abbas’ threats to dissolve the PA and to hand over responsibility for the West Bank to Israel if the latter refused to return to the peace talks and to freeze settlement construction after Israel’s elections that will take place in January 22, 2013.
Abu Marzouq have wandered in a press release published on his Facebook page, “Why President Abbas want to hand over the West Bank to Israel? Why he don’t hand it over to Hamas.”
Abu Marzouq said that the best and most effective threat for Israel is to hand the West Bank to Hamas, as Hamas has proved its steadfastness in the face of the Israeli siege imposed on Gaza and their success in achieving the triumph in the wars with Israel and Hamas attempts in fighting the internal conflict and reaching a national reconciliation.
