Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told thousands of Iranians at Tehran University that his government would never recognize Israel and would continue to fight for the "liberation of Jerusalem." Making his first visit abroad since the militant group Hamas took power in March, Haniyeh criticized the U.S. for demanding that Hamas recognize Israel as a basis for renewed peace talks and before international aid to the Palestinians resumes.

The world shared the American people's gratitude for the special forces who rid us of Osama bin Laden, but there was one flagrant exception. "We condemn the assassination of an Arab holy warrior," declared Ismail Haniyeh, the prime minister of the Hamas regime in Gaza, who also deplored "the continuing American policy … of shedding Muslim blood. " This is the same Hamas that has launched hundreds of suicide bombers and thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians. Hamas terrorists have held Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier, in solitary confinement for nearly five years without a single Red Cross visit.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Friday that he would be willing to sacrifice his job if sanctions on his Hamas-led government were lifted. It was the latest indication the Islamic militant group Hamas was nearing a deal on a unity government with President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party. "When the issue of the siege is on one side, and my being prime minister is on the other, let the siege be lifted to end the suffering of the Palestinian people," Haniyeh said.

Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip, on Monday denounced the U.S. killing of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. "We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior," Haniyeh told reporters, according to Reuters. "We regard this as a continuation of the American policy based on oppression and the shedding of Muslim and Arab blood. " His words were likely to do nothing for the reputation of the Islamist party, which popularized suicide bombings against Israel and is considered a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, in his most extensive public comments in more than two weeks, said the Israeli military offensives in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon were an attempt to establish regional dominance under the pretext of rescuing kidnapped soldiers, and he called for unity among the armed Palestinian factions. "The aggression was there before the kidnapping of the soldiers," he said in a speech before Friday prayers.
