Hamas can prevent the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, warns Hamas TV editor
Al-Aqsa TV “Hebrew Affairs Editor and Expert” Mu’min Meqdad: “There is no doubt that the resistance [Hamas] or the negotiator gave the occupation (i.e., Israel) very little time to implement these understandings. I think that the coming days will be a test for the occupation. If the occupation evades [its responsibilities], I believe that the resistance [Hamas] can deprive the occupation the pleasure of a number of the coming opportunities, such as the European Song Contest (i.e., Eurovision). There is still room to maneuver in the coming days… [Hamas] will monitor… the implementation of the understandings… If the occupation changes its mind or evades these things, there is no doubt that the resistance will have the last word.”
