GAZA STRIP (Dispatches) –
Palestine’s Hamas resistance movement has denounced normalization deals with the Zionist regime, saying they are aimed at legitimatizing the regime in the Middle East and striking up an alliance with Tel Aviv.
In a statement released Saturday evening, the resistance movement described the so-called Abraham Accords struck by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and several other Arab countries with the Zionist regime as “very dangerous.”
The agreements, it said, seek to assert the occupying regime’s military, political and economic hegemony over the region, plunder its wealth, marginalize the Palestinian cause, and isolate the Palestinian nation from the rest of the Arab and Muslim world.
The movement warned that the normalization agreements could affect the aspirations of Palestinian people as well as Arab and Muslim countries, and jeopardize their national security.
Hamas called the Abraham Accords a Zionist-American project aiming to foment tensions among Muslim and Arab countries in order to sideline the Middle East conflict, and divert attention from the struggle against the regime as the occupier of Palestinian lands and the greatest threat to the region.
The agreements, Hamas said, seek to exhaust the Palestinian nation’s resilience, marginalize Palestinians and their resistance forces as well as anyone who supports them and stands with them.
They aim to give the Zionist regime a free hand to advance its expansionist projects by expropriating Palestinian lands, Judaize the occupied Al-Quds, demolish Palestinian buildings and homes, displace Palestinians and expand settlements, it added.
Hamas called on the countries that have signed normalization accords with the regime to correct their wrong political approach and to align themselves with the anti-Zionist ideals of the regional nations.
The movement finally called for a strong and effective strategy to confront all the projects that aim to liquidate the Palestinian cause, foremost among which are the so-called Abraham Accords and the “deal of century” crafted by former U.S. president Donald Trump.
The Biden administration says it will encourage more Arab states to normalize ties with the Zionist regime during a ceremony marking the first anniversary of former president Donald Trump’s controversial deal.
“We will encourage more countries to follow the lead of the Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a virtual meeting with ministers of the three countries as well as the Zionist regime.
The deals stirred widespread protests among Muslims nations and the Palestinians say they were a stab in the back of the Palestinians.
