From Gaza, Sincerely

Mousa Abu Marzook, deputy chief of the Hamas political bureau.

In The Guardian, Thursday 22 January 2009.

02[…] to President Obama we say: the wave of hope that met your election was heavily dampened by your silence on the Gaza massacre. This was compounded by your pre-election statement siding with the Israeli settlers of Sderot. You would do well to know the history of the places of which you speak. Sderot, which may be known to some as an Israeli town, lies on the ruins of Najd, a Palestinian village ransacked in May 1948 by Zionist terrorist gangs. Villagers were forced from their beds and homes with nothing but the clothes they were wearing, rendering them refugees for the next 61 years. That is the story of Sderot. It is never a good start to get your tyrant and victims mixed up, but there is still room for a revival of passionate optimism. Only if you decide to fairly address the issue of the 6 million Palestinian refugees and the ending of occupation of Palestinian lands, including Jerusalem, will you be able to start a new relationship with the Muslim world.01

    I don’t know if you understand the Moroccan dialect, but in essence I said “May god make you victorious”, and victory does not have to be military, it can be a victory of justi7e, t can be a moral victory,…
    I bow to people that place justice and truth above anything else, and you are one of those “Just” people.
    Their spin machines are running full steam, but they cannot hide the truth for too long, we “speak” to each other not through “official” BBC or CNN or NBC or … microphones or cameras, but through these new outlets.
