The Hamas Movement stated Saturday that it would discuss the proposals of former US president Jimmy Carter about the truce with the Israeli occupation and would respond to these proposals next Monday taking into account the best interests of the Palestinian.

"President Carter is a man respected by Hamas and the Palestinian people; he declared that the Palestinian people are subjected to an unjust siege and that Hamas is a national liberation movement, not a terrorist movement as claimed by the current American administration; thus, we give serious consideration to his proposals for calm," Mousa Abu Marzouk, the deputy head of the Hamas political bureau, elaborated.

Abu Marzouk underlined that Carter"s proposals comprised three basic issues, namely, Israeli captive soldier Gilad Shalit, the truce, and ending the siege on Gaza. 

The Hamas leader said in this regard that Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, a senior Hamas leader, and Sa"eed Siyam, the head of the Hamas parliamentary bloc, would arrive in Damascus to join wide discussions held at all levels within the movement about Carter"s proposals because they are important to consider and worth discussing them internally.

The Hamas leader pointed out that Carter did not make any promise to Hamas leadership, but he would present Hamas"s viewpoint fully in a press conference expected to be held next Monday.
