Hamas calls for overthrow of Israeli-Palestinian Oslo peace accords
Can you feel the hate coming out of Gaza?
The Islamist Hamas movement called Tuesday for the overthrow of the Israeli-Palestinian Oslo interim peace accords, saying the 1993 deal paving the way for an eventual peace had been a “dangerous event.”
In a statement released on the 18th anniversary of the signature of the accords by Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Hamas said it “was the most dangerous agreement on the Palestinian cause and the rights of our people.”
Hamas, which has administered the Gaza Strip since 2007, consistently refuses to recognize Israel, and calls for it to be destroyed and replaced by an Islamic state covering all of historic Palestine.
Since the accords were signed, Hamas has launched a series of suicide bombings and other attacks against Israel, killing and wounding hundreds of people.
