Islamic Jihad urges continued resistance to Israeli occupation

Nov. 27, 2008 6:14 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 27, 2008 6:14 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The Islamic Jihad movement affirmed it will not give up its use of "resistance" as a way to stop Israel's attacks on Wednesday.

This pronouncement came at a meeting titled "Islamic Movement in the Shadow of the Changes in Palestine," which was held by the Palestinian Media Assembly. Attendees included the head of the Islamic Union of Unions, Yousef Haseineh and a number of leaders of the Islamic Jihad.

"Regardless of who will rule the Palestinian state, America and the occupation want to establish a state that will first and foremost recognize Israel, and once the Palestinians recognize Israel, they will loose their right of resistance," warned Ibrhim An-Najjar, a leader of the Islamic Jihad movement.

A resolution that establishes a Palestinian state that is "weak and separated into cantons aiming to recognize Israel" will do the same, he added.

In regard to Fatah and Hamas, An-Najjar indicated that the strength and quality of their relations depends on "the extent to which these factions cling to the Palestinian principles of historical Palestine as a whole and refuse to give up any of their parts or recognizing Israel."

An-Najjar said the movement condemns the arrests of Islamic Jihad members in the West Bank.

He also rejected the recent proposal involving resettlement and compensation as a solution the issue of Palestinian refugees.
