Hamas leader Isamil Haniyeh called in an Oct. 26 address for the “free people of the world” to stop the bombing of Gaza, which he referred to as the “new Holocaust.”
In the address, which was broadcast by Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen television, the Hamas leader said, “The blood of the women, children and elderly […] we are the ones who need this blood, so it awakens within us the revolutionary spirit, so it awakens with us resolve,” said Haniyeh.
Israel’s demise is “inevitable,” said Haniyeh, and therefore preparations must be made for the “post-occupation” phase.
Haniyeh, together with his family, left Gaza some two years ago. They now are believed to reside in Doha, Qatar, along with other senior Hamas figures.
