Deputy chairman of Hamas political bureau Musa Abu Marzouk said that like the USSR and the Berlin Wall, the day will come when people ask where Israel has gone. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Russia Today TV on May 17, 2021. Abu Marzouk said that this is just one war within a series of wars – and a war will come when Hamas negotiates with Israel about the end of their occupation, and their leaving Palestine. He added that "Israel will come to an end, just like it began." For more information about Musa Abu Marzouk, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 5818, 4492, and 1043.
Musa Abu Marzouk: "This is not the final war. It's not like it was in Vietnam and elsewhere, where things ended up with negotiations. This is just one of a [series] of wars, and a war will come when we negotiate with them about the end of their occupation, and their leaving of Palestine. Israel will come to an end just like it began, and our Palestinian people will return to their homes, because injustice cannot last and people must get what is rightly theirs.
"We are no dreamers. Until recently, they mocked Hamas's rockets and called them children's toys. I do not believe anyone is saying this today. Until recently, the whole world supported the white government in South Africa, but things have changed. Where did the Soviet Union go? Where did the Berlin Wall go? The day will come when people ask: 'Where did Israel go?'"
