Mashaal: Hamas backs demands for freedom

DOHA, Qatar (Ma’an) — Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal said Saturday that his faction stood behind those demanding freedom and dignity in the Middle East.

Addressing a conference on Jerusalem in the Qatari capital, Mashaal said Hamas’ leaders and institutions are united and said it operates democratically, just not publicly.

“I would like to reiterate that Hamas makes mistakes, but it has also had successes,” he said.

Hamas remains committed to armed resistance and rejects other options which have weakened the nation, he told the conference.

The Palestinian cause “lacks power, not legality,” he said.
