Hamas has been given its marching orders from its spiritual and financial guiding light. Iran is the master; Hamas is their proxy. When Iran says “fight,” Hamas fights. When Iran says “take a break,” Hamas gathers itself for the next battle.
Don’t believe any of the ceasefire talk you might hear coming from Hamas “politicians”; Iran has given the command: fight on. This from “Countdown to Israel’s destruction has begun, says Ahmadinejad,” by Dudi Cohen (with aid from Roee Nahmias) for Ynet:
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki urged Hamas and the Islamic Jihad to carry on with their armed struggle against Israel during meetings with leaders of the Palestinian groups in Damascus Saturday.
According to the London-based al-Hayat daily, Mottaki met with Hamas’ politburo head Khaled Mashaal and a delegation of Islamic Jihad leaders in the framework an official visit to Syria.
“The Palestinian people are a mighty people and there is a need to continue with the resistance,” al-Hayat quoted Mottaki as saying.
Al-Hayat also reported that Mottaki met with a top political advisor to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah as well as a delegation of the pro-Syrian Lebanese Amal faction.
If this was Iran’s message to Hamas, I wonder what Mottaki said to Hizballah?
