Several times I wrote at China Daily, my opinion, that the Palestinian People are being deprived of a bright future by their own leadership.

If you read between the lines of this following copy-paste from the Jerusalem Post, you’ll learn one of the highly effective tactics of Hamas’ leader Khaled Mashaal, to ascertain that no matter the misery that he has brought on his people ………………he remains the one that dominates in the Gaza Strip.

Khaled’s attitudes keep his people in total misery and does nothing that can be categorized relevant to bring some progress to the Gaza Strip. He is directly responsible of the last Gaza War …….. and still, nobody within its people is doing enough to depose him from power.

Despite the present difficulties the people in the Gaza Strip are going through, the ring master Mashaal, organized a circus, and a popular celebration, on the early release from jail of 20 Palestinian women that ………… were going to be released in a short time, because they have already gone through most of their sentence.

You would think that the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip chose to follow a leader to work for the people, not for his own power grabs.

Instead of bringing progress by cooperating with the Palestinian Authority’s boss Mahmoud Abbas, Mashaal insists on causing more misery in order to ascertain that he will hold the power and perhaps even remove the boss Mahmoud Abbas from power.

The Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip want “entertainment”, rather than peace and progress. Mashaal delivers.
Perhaps it is true that every nation get the leaders ………… that they deserve.



“”””Hours after Israel released 19 female Palestinian prisoners in exchange for a video proving captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit was alive, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on Friday night threatened to capture more Israeli soldiers in order to win the release of all Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons.

In a speech in Damascus, Syria, Mashaal congratulated the Palestinian people on the release of the prisoners and promised to work for the release of thousands of Palestinians held by Israel.

“Those who were able to capture Schalit and hold him safely for more than three years are capable of capturing "Schalit and Schalit and Schalit until there was not even one prisoner in the enemy's jails," Mashaal said.

The Damascus-based leader's comments were followed by remarks from Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri, who on Friday night said that the prisoners’ release proved that Israel had no choice but to give in to the group's demands.

"The Zionist enemy has no choice but to accept Hamas's demands," Masri reportedly said.

According to Channel 10, Masri told the Hamas television network that "the fact that 20 female prisoners were released today helps Hamas, and the passing time does not help the Zionist enemy, but rather strengthens our position."

The Hamas spokesman said that even though it could take a long time, the negotiations with Israel would lead to a prisoner exchange deal.

"The negotiations over the deal are being held slowly and will continue for a long time, but we are sure they will be successful," he was quoted as saying.

By 11:55 on Friday, Israel almost completed its share of the deal, releasing 19 prisoners, 18 to the West Bank and one to Gaza. The 20th prisoner will be released Sunday, after it turned out that a prisoner released Wednesday was about to complete her sentence and would therefore be released regardless of the deal.

Earlier Friday, the prisoners were transferred in four Israel Prison Service vehicles from Hasharon Prison to Ofer Prison and Hashikma Prison, where they were examined by officials from the International Committee of the Red Cross to ascertain that they were in good health.

One prisoner left for Gaza, while the remaining 18 entered the West Bank.

In Gaza, the released prisoner, originally from the Islamic Jihad, was ceremoniously received by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. She entered Gaza with an 18-month-old baby to which she gave birth to in prison. Haniyeh announced the infant "the youngest Palestinian prisoner."

Hamas tried to milk the deal to the maximum, marketing it to Palestinians as proof that it was the Islamist group that brought results and not the bitter rivals of Hamas, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement.

Celebrations were much more overt and public in Gaza, despite the fact that only one of the 19 prisoners released Friday came to Gaza.

Earlier, Israel Radio reported that Hamas media outlets have been playing propaganda jingles all day and issuing calls to Gazans to march the streets in celebration of the women's release.

None of the prisoners on the list were convicted of offenses which involved casualties; most were jailed for failed terror attacks or for filling out support roles. All were nearing the end of their jail sentences.

Israel usually releases prisoners of this sort as a goodwill gesture during the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. None have been released by Netanyahu's administration this year. The deal Friday was the first release of Palestinian prisoners under the Netanyahu government.

This is part of an article published back on 2008, on the Hebrew left wing newspaper, Haaretz, in Israel.

I publish it here, as a complement to message #1, and as proof that the Hamas since long ago, openly torpedoes the democratically elected presidency of the Palestinians.

Muhamad Abbas, the elected and nowadays acting, president of the Palestinians has a worst enemy “in house” (Khaled MashaL) ………………………………….than his “allegedly” enemy in Israel, democratically elected by a few of you here in China Daily………………… Prime Minister Natanyahu.



""""In a largely symbolic show of support for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas,the Palestine Liberation Organization's highest legislative body unanimously elected him on Sunday as president of a future state, a post held previously by the late Yasser Arafat.

Earlier Sunday, exiled Hamas leader Khaled Meshal suggested in a speech at the opening session of a Palestinian conference that Abbas was a merchant selling Palestinians' rights, after the Hamas group denounced the president for publishing Hebrew-language newspaper ads outlining a proposed Arab peace deal in Israeli papers.
       
Meshal did not mention the president by name in the speech, in which he said: "Our people's legitimate rights are not goods to be marketed, and national leaders are not merchants who announce their goods through paid ads in Israeli newspapers.

Palestinian rights, he added, can only be regained through resistance, not advertisements. The full-page ad published by Abbas in three Hebrew-language newspapers this week explained to Israelis that a withdrawal from Palestinian territories would bring full recognition by the Arab world - in line with a peace initiative first proposed in 2002 and re-launched at an Arab summit last year.


Abbas defended himself against the accusations, saying: "I do not succumb to the Israeli-American veto. I do what is in the interest of the Palestinian people."

The ad says 57 Arab and Muslim countries would establish diplomatic ties with Israel in exchange for a withdrawal from lands Palestinians seek for an independent state, including the West Bank, Gaza Strip and parts of Jerusalem.

In his speech, the Damascus-based Meshal also criticized continued contact between Abbas and Israeli leadership despite ongoing Israeli crimes in Gaza and settlement building in the West Bank.

Hamas and Abbas' mainstream Fatah faction, have been bitter rivals since Hamas' violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in June 2007. Following the takeover, Abbas dissolved the Hamas-led government from his base in the West Bank and formed a new administration excluding the more radical group.

Arab mediation efforts have so far failed to achieve reconciliation. Mashaal said Abbas was not qualified and has no right to negotiate with Israel on his own. """""""

At 05:18 I submited message #2 of this thread

.


The message contains an article published on 2008, on a left wing Israeli newspaper, Haaretz.
The message is a complement to my previous message #1 and I submit it as proof, that Khaled Mashal the leader of the Hamas ..... is enemy number one of Mahmud Abbas, the democratically elected President of the Palestinians.

Khaled Mashal is also enemy number one of the Palestinian People. His actions perpetuates the Israeli - Palestinian conflict and keeps the Palestinian People living in Gaza, for an indefinit time ...................................in total misery.

Yes, it's very sad, the plight of the Palestinians. What's sadder is that they, as a nation, allow such a few of their, supposedly own, to continue to perpetuate their hardships.
