Khaled Mishaal, the head of Hamas political bureau, stressed Saturday that his Movement has a genuine intention to achieve the national reconciliation with its rivals, adding that the Hamas experience in the Gaza Strip was compulsory and not optional.

 

During his meeting with the delegation of the Kuwaiti association of journalists, Mishaal said that it is unconventional to have one Palestinian authority in the West Bank and another in Gaza, but there should be one authority and government formed according to a national consensus and to the rules of the democratic game. 

 

He added that some refused the democracy and the results of 2006 elections, and resorted to foreign powers to change these results which led eventually to the state of division in the Palestinian arena.

 

The political leader of Hamas noted that his Movement did not object to the participation of other factions in the Palestinian government, but the external interventions impede the achievement of reconciliation and the formation of a national government.

 

He highlighted that any leader or authority has no right to criminalize the resistance as long as the Palestinian people live under occupation and there is still no independent Palestinian state having a national army and sovereignty.

 

Mishaal said that Hamas, its armed wing and their institutions are being systematically targeted in the West Bank, pointing out that there are more than 600 of its cadres in PA jails in the West Bank, many of them are exposed to torture and some others were tortured to death.

 

He also pointed out, in another context, that his Movement is ready to make peace with the Israeli occupation while maintaining its adherence to the option of resistance, saying that just peace cannot be achieved without strength because the power balance is necessary for both fighting wars and making peace.

 

Meanwhile, a speech by the Hamas leader scheduled for Saturday was postponed for "technical reasons", the Hamas Movement announced.
