Senior Hamas Official: Hamas and Fatah Have Failed Their People – Khaled Abu Toameh (Jerusalem Post)
The leaders of Hamas and Fatah have failed their people and have turned them into “beggars and street vendors who can hardly earn a living,” senior Hamas official Ahmed Yousef wrote on the Palestinian Donia Al-Watan website on Monday.
“We have all made mistakes – Hamas and Fatah alike. Hamas and Fatah have failed to reach agreement on a unified national vision. We have failed in the management of good governance.”
“Hamas and Fatah failed the day they showed the world – with ignorance and political idiocy – that the factions are more important than the homeland. We failed when we showed the world that the position of the leader has become the goal of everyone.”
“Fatah is a par excellence partner in the state of failure and degradation.”
