Member of the Political Bureau of the Hamas movement, Mahmoud Zahhar, stated that negotiations with Israel will fail and that negotiations are meant to eliminate the resistance and serve the Israeli interest. Zahhar stated that all factions must support the resistance and added that resistance is the safe line that protects the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

He warmed that such talks with Israel are meant to undermine the resistance and its role countering Israel and its aggression.

“Late president, Yasser Arafat, realized that negotiations without resistance will not have a positive outcome”, Zahhar said, “He knew resistance will be serve Palestinian negotiators during their talks with Israel”.

The Hamas leader further stated that the Arab Peace Initiative must not provide any legitimacy to the talks with Israel “as such talks do not serve the national interest of the Palestinian people”.

The Arab League decided to postpone its October 4th meeting in order to give the United States a chance to eliminate all obstacles that are obstructing peace talks.

The League recently declared that Israel must halt its settlement activities if it wants peace talks to be held without obstacles or interruptions.
