Hamas Won’t Renounce Resistance
: "GAZA CITY, 31 May 2005 — Hamas yesterday rejected calls from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for the movement to give up resisance and hold dialogue with the ruling Fatah party.
“We think that the past experience of our people with the Israeli occupation confirms that resistance is the main language that this occupation understands,” Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said in Gaza City.
“Peace agreements will only bring further losses and push back our cause,” he added, pointing out that Abbas’ Fatah party also maintains its own armed wing, the loosely affiliated Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades."
