PA daily: The way Palestinians responded to Israel's Gaza offensive demonstrated their right to a state

“In these difficult days, [living] under this oppressive attack (i.e., Israel’s Pillar of Defense operation that aimed at destroying the terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, November 2012) and confronting Israel’s bloody illusions, our people – by weapon and by will – has presented itself most honorably and in a way that is appropriate for itself, for its national initiative and for its just goals, first and foremost its right to an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.”

Note: In response to Hamas' ongoing rocket fire against Israel, Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense on Nov. 14, 2012, aimed at crippling the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. On Nov. 21, Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire. This video was one of many broadcast by Hamas during the conflict, as part of their campaign to scare Israeli soldiers and civilians.
