"Honoring the truce, which was sponsored by our Egyptian brethren, is the duty of each and every one of us. Violating it shall constitute a sin."

Moussa Abu Marzouk is Hamas Political Bureau Deputy Chairman. He said arming will continue. Self-defense is legal and essential. All governments must protect their people. They're obligated to do so. 

"There is no way to relinquish weapons. (They) protected us, and there is no way to stop obtaining and manufacturing them, said Marzouk."

He added that Hamas doesn't oppose Abbas' November 29 UN nonmember status bid. At the same time, he said "Occupation needs resistance, not negotiations." 

Forty-five years under militarized control proves it. Israel only respects might. Liberation requires long-term struggle.

Hamas also urges healing. It wants reconciliation and national unity with Fatah prioritized. Israel, of course, won't tolerate undoing divisions it instituted after Hamas' 2006 electoral victory. Hamas is too valued an enemy to lose.

In a show of good faith, it granted amnesty to Fatah prisoners and suspects. A committee will be established to implement it.

Previous reconciliation attempts failed. Implementation never followed. Fatah subverted efforts. It did so collaboratively with Israel. Expect little more now than earlier. Washington and Israel won't allow it.

Anti-Hamas accusations began. It didn't take long. Haaretz headlined the following: 

"Report: Israeli spy satellites spot Iranian ship being loaded with rockets for Gaza." Rupert Murdoch's The Sunday Times was cited.

Satellites can identify much on the ground. While still in port, they don't know cargo ship destinations. They may not determine contents accurately. Haaretz's headline is irresponsible. Consider the source.

Murdoch is a longtime pro-Israeli stalwart. Jewish organizations gave him numerous awards. He got them for decades of supporting Israel's worst crimes.

Haaretz quoted an unnamed Israeli source, saying:

"With a lot of effort, Iran has skillfully built a strategic arm pointing at Israel from the south."

It's hard imagining any respectable broadsheet publishing what it knows doesn't wash. Doing so inverts truth.

Hamas threatens no one. Israel represents Palestine's overwhelming existential threat. Decades of occupation harshness, Gaza's siege, and unrelenting persecution show it.
