NABLUS, (PIC)– Dr. Abdel-Sattar Qasim, Professor of political science, said that the prisoner-exchange deal was a historic and honouring deal and represents a defeat of the occupation government’s premier.
In a special statement to PIC he said the conclusion of this deals means that there was no other way the Zionist entity could have resorted to in order to free Shalit which forced it to accept the deal and this should be viewed as a historic achievement.
He stressed that this achievement is a real translation of determination and steadfastness, adding that this deal was similar to that reached in 1985 by the PFLP GC and Hizbollah.
He added that to clinch such a deal one needs lots of patience and determination and Hamas has both, that is why it managed to achieve this great deal.
He said that the deal united the Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Jerusalem and 1948-occupied Palestine. The deal did not distinguish between Palestinians and the fact that it included all female captives reflects the values of our people.
He said that the expression on Netanyahu’s face as he announced the deal reflected defeat.
