15 Nov 2012

Hundreds of Egyptians marched on Thursday, November 15, from Omar Makram Mosque near Tahrir Square to the Arab League headquarters in Cairo to stage a demonstration against the recent Israeli attacks on Gaza Strip.

Protestors called on the Egyptian government to cut all diplomatic and economic ties with Israel, and to shut down the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

On Wednesday night, President Mohamed Morsi recalled Egypt’s ambassador to Israel following the Israeli attack on Gaza that killed at least 15 Palestinians, including Hamas leading figure Ahmed Al-Jaabari and two young children.

Protestors shouted statements against the attacks on Gaza, raising Egyptian, Palestinian flags and other flags bearing the words “There is no God but Allah, Mohamed is the messenger of Allah.”

They also chanted statements like “Gaza is Symbol of Dignity”, “O Arab Rulers, Open Door for Jihad”.

Protesters also demanded the opening of the Rafah border crossing to allow more Palestinians into Egypt, the provision of political and logistical support to Gaza, and the cancelation of Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood called on Egyptians to hold a million-man march in Cairo on Friday to denounce recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip and to express solidarity with the Palestinian people in Gaza.

Hamas responded to the attacks by launching rockets into Israel, killing at least three Israelis.

Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal attended the anniversary celebration of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) liberation on Wednesday evening, October 3, at Saladin Castle in Cairo.

In his statement during the celebration, which was attended by Egypt’s Cultural Minister Mohamed Saber Arab, urged Arab leaders to work on liberating Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Israelis.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal:
“Today, after the Arab Spring uprisings, and after the January 25 Revolution in beloved Egypt, moral support is not accepted or enough. My message is to prepare for the project of liberating Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and Al-Aqsa Mosque, God willing.”

Mashaal added that the Palestinian Authority has to stop pinning hopes on negotiations with Israel, and should resort to pushing away from the negotiation table and turning to resistance as the only way to liberate the Palestinian territories.

He also stressed necessity for putting an end to inter-Palestinian division, mainly between Fatah and Hamas, and work hard to achieve reconciliation and unity.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal:
“It is time for turning the table of negotiations, surrender and turn political processes upside down over those who wanted us to be slaves on its dwarf seats. Today, the Palestinian leadership is required, with all its names and factions, to take a large step towards putting an end to division and accomplishing reconciliation.”

The celebration, organized by Al-Quds International Foundation, was dubbed “In the Footsteps of Saladin.”

It included music performances of Palestinian folklore and national songs about Al-Quds.

Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
18 Jul 2012

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi received on Wednesday, July 18, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo in their first meeting since Morsi became President.
“We started our talks with His Excellency by congratulating him for being elected as President of Egypt, wishing him all success,” Abbas told reporters in a press conference after the meeting. The two leaders held talks on various Palestinian issues including the Middle East peace process and the developments of the political process between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:
“We affirmed to him that now all doors are closed with regards to the political process (with Israel) and that we have only side communications, but the general relations and the like are still there between us and the Israeli side; we don’t want to cut them off or change them.” They also discussed the issue of inter-Palestinian reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas, which is sponsored by Egypt.
Abbas told reporters that there was delay from Hamas side with regards to holding the agreed-upon elections.
Hamas officials point fingers back at Fatah and say that they suspended preparing for the elections due to the recent arrest of Hamas figures by Fatah in the West Bank.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:
“We affirmed to His Excellency President that reconciliation for us means holding the elections. Until now, we don’t know the reasons that made Hamas delay registering the voters in the Gaza Strip, whose number is 300,000.” Abbas said that he did not ask Morsi to pressure Hamas to go on implementing the reconciliation agreement reached in Cairo.
The talks between Morsi and Abbas dealt with the financial crisis the Palestinian Authority is going through; Abbas said that Saudi Arabia provided the biggest assistance in this regard.
“Lifting the siege on the Gaza Strip is a national demand and we all have to work on achieving it,” Abbas said.

Cairo, Egypt | April 29, 2012

The issue of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails was the focus of the meeting of Hamas delegation led by Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal and the Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Araby on Sunday, April 29, in Cairo.

Mashaal told reporters that he agreed with the Arab League Chief, as he did with the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, to internationalize the issue of the Palestinian detainees in Israel and the "inhumane" violations practiced against them.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal:
“Last Thursday, I called brother Abu Mazen (President Mahmoud Abbas) and we agreed to unite Palestinian efforts for the issue of prisoners and that the Palestinian Authority would internationalize the issue of prisoners to double pressure on the Israelis. Hence, the unity of the Palestinian position, along with Arab, Islamic and international efforts, will be in favor of the Palestinian prisoners, God willing.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Araby:
“We also talked about reconciliation, but the urgent issue that I hope the international media focuses on is the prisoners. What is going on in the Israeli prisons is inhumane and it represents grave violations of human rights.”

Mashaal said that the Palestinian prisoners in Israel have gone on a hunger strike since April 17 to protest the brutal treatment of the Israeli authorities against them, according to Mashaal.

Hamas Politburo Chief stressed that there are no objections from Hamas about Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' leadership of the coming joint government as reaffirmed in the Hamas-Fatah reconciliation meetings in Cairo.
