Hamas\' Sheikh Yassin Calls on Palestinian Delegation to Pull out from Summit
The spiritual guide of Palestinian opposition group Hamas, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Monday called on the Palestinian delegation to pull out from the Camp David summit with Israel, stressing the need for resistance instead of negotiations.
"We say to the (Palestinian) Authority and to the negotiating team at Camp David: you should withdraw from the useless talks that cannot give the Palestinian people their rights and come back to the trenches of resistance and Jihad (holy war)," Yassin told reporters in Gaza City.
