Hamas Official Talal Nassar: Hamas Accepts Palestinian State within Pre-1967 Borders




Published on Oct 3, 2018

During an interview on Turkey's Channel 9 network, Hamas official and political analyst Talal Nassar said that while Hamas has accepted a Palestinian state within the pre-1967 borders, it does not accept a two-state solution or "relinquish" the rest of Palestine. Nassar gave the example of the Prophet Muhammad, who circled the Kaaba in Mecca while it contained 160 idols and smashed the idols when he conquered Mecca. Nassar said Hamas can agree to pre-1967 without recognizing Israel, which "constitutes treason." The interview aired on September 13, 2018.
