Hamas: We Will Treat NATO Forces as 'Occupiers'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/2/14 | Elad Benari

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s suggestion that NATO forces be deployed in the future Palestinian state is not well-received by his rivals, the Hamas rulers of Gaza.

A spokesman for Hamas said Friday that the faction would regard any international military presence within a future Palestinian state as "occupation" forces, reported the Ma’an news agency.

During a rally in southern Gaza, spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that any international forces stationed in “Palestine” as a result of a peace agreement with Israel would be treated the same as “the Israeli occupation.”

Abu Zuhri called on Abbas to withdraw from negotiations with the United States and Israel, saying the talks only served to "terminate the question of Palestine and what is left of Palestinian rights and principles."

"Nobody has authorized you (Abbas) to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people, or on behalf of Hamas or any other faction," he said, according to Ma’an.

"Why don't you tell the truth about what is going on in the secret negotiations? If you are honest, go out to your people and tell the truth and give them details."

Abu Zuhri urged all factions to oppose the ongoing peace talks and any emerging agreement, saying that after decades of on-and-off talks, negotiations have proved a "mirage."

Abbas’s suggestion was made in a recent interview with the New York Times. In that interview, he said he would agree to let Israeli troops remain in the Palestinian state for a transitional period of five years.

After the five-year transitional period, Abbas said, the Israeli forces could be replaced indefinitely by an American-led NATO force, with troops throughout the territory, at every crossing and within Arab eastern Jerusalem, along with Palestinian Arab police and security units.

Some liberals seem to view Islam as their favorite religion, even radical Islam, imo.

Wonder what they will think of this threat to their liberal UN.

the Pals should be slaughtered , to the man . There should be no trace of any Palestinian people after one year of dealing with the situation . Then , and maybe only then , the middle east might stand a chance for peace . Without them , it could happen . None of the other Arabs want them . They are the black sheep . Enough with the black sheep already . They have no right to hold peace in the middle east forever hostage . Kill um all .

WTF is NATO doing in the Middle East anyways?
Is this a back door route for Russia to attack Germany now that the Fulda Gap is closed?

Of course they will, infidels are infidels. This does not harm the peace process any more than killing Jews, so there will be no boycott movement.

NATO has to be in the middle east and Russia will come too, eventually. They will declare “peace”, and then Armageddon starts.
