“Our problem is with the Israeli occupation. Israelis are killing our children. The West has been oppressive, too. You are biased toward Israel. You support Israel. You are capable of telling Israel, ‘Enough.’ You are capable of telling Israel to withdraw. Why is the West concerned about the security of Israel and not concerned about our security?
“The West has nothing to fear from Hamas. We’re not going to force people to do anything. We will not impose Sharia. Hamas is contained. Hamas deals only with the Israeli occupation. We are not Al Qaeda.”
