Hamas lawmaker: UN bid serves Obama, Israel

Sept. 14, 2011 1:02 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 14, 2011 1:02 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Palestinian lawmaker Salah Bardawil says the bid to join the UN is a "tactical move" that supports President Barack Obama’s next election campaign.

Bardawil, of Hamas, warned that the move would "set the borders for a Jewish country," therefore contributing to normalizing recognition of "the state of occupation and its borders."

The move would amount to the "criminalization and elimination of Palestinian resistance."

He added that the step was a mistake akin to the signing of the Oslo Accords.
