“This decision runs against international law which ensures peoples’ right to resist the aggression and occupation with all possible means including the armed struggle” “This decision runs against international law which ensures peoples’ right to resist the aggression and occupation with all possible means including the armed struggle”

In its press statement on the Paraguayan decision, the group said: “This decision runs against international law which ensures peoples’ right to resist the aggression and occupation with all possible means including the armed struggle”

This is confirmed by the UN resolution A/RES/37/43. Therefore, the decision doesn’t serve the stability and security in the region, and it will harm the good relations between Palestinian and Paraguayan peoples”.

“This decision will also strengthen the Israeli state-terrorism practiced against the Palestinians for decades and provides the occupation with the cover to continue crimes” the statement read.

The Hamas statement also stressed that it is “a Palestinian national resistant movement that struggles for the freedom and independence of its people. It doesn’t antagonize any nation and the struggle is only against the Israeli occupation”.

The statement concluded calling on Paraguay “to immediately retreat from the decision and to take any needed measures to support the Palestinian struggle for freedom and independence and prosecute the Israeli war criminals”.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Paraguay’s decision. Netanyahu said in an earlier statement that Israel is “working so that more countries will also take this important step.

    @Trimonde not all the South Amercan countries are cowards like Argentina sit on the fence all the time. As for the free world, I suspect you mean the non alligned. Freedom is subjective and I guess the Venezuelans are not feeling very free at the moment. Kirchner wants to take you down the Venezuelan model and hand the country over to the Russians and Chinese. Good luck with that.

    ... And to think just a few years ago, all of Latinamerica was immune to British and American conflicts with the Middle East, basically because they were irrelevant to us, did not touch us ever, and we had done absolutely nothing to them at all to warrant any animosity. We still haven't! LOL! Yet somehow “pro want the US and UK to be our friends” dimwit political leaders are now tying to make it our business.
    You know something, you guys are no longer the “leaders of the free world” now you are just the “ruining the world leaders”! LOL
