The Palestinians’ Three No’s: What They Mean

What does Hamas, the Palestinian terror group that rules the Gaza Strip, mean when it says that it “won’t pay any political price” in return for a truce agreement with Israel? Answer: No to recognizing Israel, no to abandoning the dream of eliminating Israel, and no to disarming.

In recent weeks, several Hamas leaders and spokesmen have repeatedly been quoted as saying that their group will not make any political concessions as part of a truce deal with Israel. The statements came as Egypt and the United Nations continue their effort to reach a truce that would end the ongoing violence along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel.

“We want a decision to end the blockade on the Gaza Strip,” Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a recent speech marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of his group. “Any understandings that are reached to end the blockade will not be in return for a political price.”

Haniyeh’s remarks were echoed by several Hamas leaders and officials belonging to Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ,) the second largest terrorist group in the Gaza Strip.

In an interview with the Gaza-based Al-Istiklal newspaper, senior PIJ official Nafez Azzam claimed that the Egyptians and the UN were recently close to achieving a truce deal that does not require the Palestinian terrorist groups to “pay a political price.”
