Hamas Terrorist Leader Returns to Gaza for First Time in 45 Years


hamas-leader-khaled-meshalKhaled Meshaal, the political leader of Hamas, returned to Gaza today for the first time since leaving after the Six Day War in 1967.

He entered Gaza through Egypt, beginning a three-day tour of Gaza, which a Hamas spokesman described as “a fruit of the victory of the resistance over the occupation.”

Meshaal is expected to address a huge rally in Gaza City tomorrow and to discuss reconciliation with the Fatah movement, which now controls much of the West Bank. Upon his return, he said in a statement, “I consider this moment my third birth, and I pray to God that my fourth birth will be the moment when all of Palestine is liberated.”

Hamas says in its charter that is committed to the destruction of Israel.
