Show of defiance in sea of green: Thousands of Palestinians gather at rallies to celebrate birth of Hamas

Tens of thousands of Hamas supporters formed a sea of green as they marched through Gaza City to mark 27 years since the formation of Islamist movement Hamas.

‘Just as we liberated Gaza… we will repeat the experience in the West Bank,’ senior Hamas leader Mahmud al-Zahar said in a speech at a similar march in southern Gaza…

Fathy Hammad, a former cabinet minister, saw the large turnout as showing Hamas – the de facto rulers of Gaza – remained popular despite the war’s devastation and the hardships of an Egyptian and Israeli blockade of the coastal territory…

      Envy? Certainly not. There is no one to envy…all the Pally attempts to attack Israel end in failure and jail. They are inviting the Israelis to defeat them.

    Delusional! Thousands are preparing to be targets for air-to-ground missiles and die as they catch them!

    When a billion or more are stolen year after year by the top brass in the hamas thug regime running gaza, coming up with a couple hundred thou out of petty cash to put on a parade doesn’t seem like much of a big deal.
