Secretary of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council Amin Maqboul:
 “Dear brothers, commanders and men of the Islamic resistance movement, Hamas. Dear brothers, representatives of the national and Islamic factions. I am happy and honored to be with you on this great, historic day as the Hamas movement celebrates 25 years since its founding. This movement that has sacrificed thousands of Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded for the sake of Palestine, for Jerusalem, and for an independent Palestinian state. Today, I am happy and honored, on my behalf, on behalf of all the factions active in national endeavors, and on behalf of the Fatah movement, to congratulate you on this blessed occasion. My brothers, dear brothers and sisters, this day would not have come about had it not been for the coherence, solidarity, and mutual assistance within our Palestinian nation, all of which was achieved after the oppressive and bloody Israeli aggression against our people in Gaza. Masses of our people came out from all places – the various cities, villages, and refugee camps of the liberated [West] Bank – in order to reinforce our nation, standing tall and strong in Gaza, and to support it, as it resisted and responded to the occupation’s aggression, aircraft, warships, and tanks – by shelling its cities and settlements. May those hands be blessed. Blessed be those hands that taught the Israeli occupier a lesson, that won victory and refuted the enemy’s claim that he was invincible.”
