Hamas leader corrects Abbas’s propaganda: Jihad, not despair, behind Palestinian violence


The Hamas leader in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, unimpressed with Mahmoud Abbas’s propaganda remark to Christian media that the current ‘knife attacks’ were the result of Palestinians’ despair, said, “This intifada is a jihad, a holy war fought by the Palestinian people against the Zionist occupation. Only a holy war will drive the occupier out of Palestine.”
