Hamas: Suicide Bombings Will Continue

(IDF)- Belying the notion that Hamas is about to accept a cease-fire, Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmad Yasin told a crowd of 50,000 at a Gaza rally on Dec. 27, 2002, authorized by the PA, that the suicide bombings against Israel will continue. Yasin emphasized: "The jihad and suicide bombings will continue - the Zionist entity will reach its end in the first quarter of the current century. It is therefore up to you [Muslim holy fighters] to be patient - the Hamas takes upon itself the liberation of all Palestinian land from the sea to the river in Rafah [in the south] and until Rosh Hanikra [in the north]." The rally was fully covered in the PA daily Al-Ayyam on Dec. 28.
