Unless the West comes across with more jizya.
RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) – Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal warned Israel could face another Palestinian uprising unless conditions in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank improved.
Let it be remembered that the conditions in the Gaza Strip and West Bank are of Hamas’ own making. The Israelis handed over the economy and infrastructure of Gaza to the “Palestinians,” including the greenhouses that were worth many millions. The Palestinians destroyed the greenhouses and used Gaza as a base for jihad attacks on Israel.
Meshaal told the Palestinian daily al-Ayyam in an interview published on Monday continuation of a Western economic embargo of the Palestinian government and military actions by Israel would “give notice to a huge explosion that would not only affect the Palestinians but also the entire region, especially the Zionist entity”.
“I warn and say that I see that the current situation is heading in the direction of the conditions that prevailed in the late 1990s … that paved the way for the al-Aqsa intifada,” Meshaal said. “I warn and under ‘warn’ I put many red lines.”
