Hamas on Monday regretted that the Arab summit resolutions did not live up to the expectations of the Palestinian people and lacked practical measures to ease their suffering.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman in Gaza, told the PIC that the summit"s closing statement included weak positions that did not carry anything new for the Palestine cause.

He stressed that the Palestinians hinged high hope on that summit, and expected that it would adopt clear stands in protecting the Palestinian people, enhancing their steadfastness, defending their holy shrines and breaking the siege imposed on them by deeds rather than by words.

"We anticipated a summit that is distinctive from the previous ones that would adopt practical decisions and lay down speedy mechanisms to break the siege, deter the aggressor and protect holy places," he explained.

Barhoum said that the Arab leaders should have used all pressure cards available against the Israeli occupation to force it recognize the Palestinian people"s rights.

Osama Hamdan, Hamas"s representative in Lebanon, had earlier called on the Arab summit to pass clear resolutions insisting on Palestinian rights and defending Jerusalem.

In the inaugural session of the summit Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad said that peace would never be reached with an enemy that does not believe in peace.

He said that peace is imposed by resistance, describing support for resistance as a national and ethical obligation.
