Former Hamas Leader Khaled Mashal Calls For West Bank ‘Guerrilla Warfare,’ States: ‘I Resist, Therefore I Am’
Former chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau Khaled Mashal said that resistance is the basis of day-to-day life for people under occupation, and that just as people say “I think, therefore I am,” the Palestinians say: “I resist, therefore I am.” Explaining that the abandonment of Jihad leads to humiliation and death, Mashal said that resistance is the pinnacle of life. He criticized Fatah for not engaging in “resistance” and added: “The West Bank, which spans over 5,600 square kilometers, and which has mountains and valleys… has everything necessary for guerrilla warfare.” Mashal’s comments aired on Al-Jazeera Network (Qatar) on December 2, 2018.
“The Quran Goes Even Further Than That By Defining Jihad, Resistance, And Self-Defense As The Essence Of Life”
Khaled Mashal: “For peoples under occupation, resistance is the natural way of life. It is the basis of day-to-day life. This is because it is inconceivable that we live under daily suffering and all of its implications under occupation, without living our daily lives with the resistance. It is the natural and reciprocal response. Just like they say: ‘I think, therefore I am, as Palestinians and as a great nation that is creative when it comes to resisting, we say: ‘I resist, therefore I am.’
