Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen: Hamas Is ISIS in Palestine

Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen said that Hamas is a terrorist movement and that even if it were to rehabilitate the people who were imprisoned or had their arms or legs broken, it would return to its old ways within a matter of months. In a TV interview against the backdrop of the violent crackdown on the economic protests in Gaza, Muhaisen called Hamas "ISIS in Palestine." The interview aired on the official PA TV channel on March 19, 2019.

Following are excerpts:

 

Jamal Muhaisen: Even if [Hamas] were to apologize today to the Palestinian people, and rehabilitate the people who languished in prison, or had their arms or legs broken – in 2-3 months Hamas would return to its old ways, because it is, in fact, a terrorist movement.

Hamas is a terrorist movement. Hamas is the ISIS of Palestine. Therefore, we must get rid of this terrorist group, which controls the Gaza Strip.
