Hamas Political Bureau member Salah Al-Bardawil said in a May 28, 2019 speech that aired on Al-Aqsa TV (Gaza-Hamas) that Palestine belongs to the Palestinians, and he criticized the Arab nations for "footing the bill" for the "rope and gallows" and the shackles that are being placed on the Palestinians and their dignity, their religion, and their moral values. He said that President Trump, Jared Kushner, and Jason Greenblatt cannot overpower the will and the blood of the Palestinians, and that the Palestinians are capable of the crushing the Deal of the Century.
Salah Al-Bardawil: "Our people have rights. This is our land. The day has come when the Arab nation is footing the bill for the shackles that are placed on the necks of our men and women, and on our dignity, our religion, and our moral values.
"The rope and the gallows are bought with Arab money. From the ocean to the Gulf, and from the Gulf to Hell, they are the ones preparing [our] funeral? And what has become of us? That vagabond Trump ‒ let him squawk. Let [Jason] Greenblatt and Kushner make statements and hints. Can they overpower our will, our decisions, our blood? They cannot. So why is the Arab nation voluntarily giving them money?
"If we have to ‒ our weapons are within our reach, and we are capable of crushing the 'deal' along with its 'century,' Allah willing."
