Hamas MP says Abbas not welcome in Gaza

Nov. 8, 2012 9:58 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 9, 2012 2:38 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas-affiliated MP Yahia Mousa said Wednesday he would not welcome Mahmoud Abbas to the Gaza Strip, after the president was reported to have considered a joint visit with the Turkish premier.

"No hello, no welcome, no greeting, your visit is refused. Gaza is the house of the revolution and the revolutionary, and we don't welcome anyone who sells our homeland," Mousa posted on his official Facebook account.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said last week that he plans visit to the Gaza Strip soon, and had had previously proposed a joint visit to the Gaza Strip with President Abbas. "He was warm to the suggestion," Erdogan said.

In October, Qatar's emir visited Gaza, breaking the isolation of its Hamas rulers, and drawing the ire of Abbas' government which is locked in a bitter rivalry with Hamas in Gaza.
