Meshaal Says 'Resistance' Depends on Situation
[An Nahar] Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, chief-in-exile Khaled Meshaal, on the third day of a trip to Gazoo, told students that different situations called for different measures -- from rockets to a truce.
He also renewed his call for efforts to implement a stalled Paleostinian reconciliation deal between his Hamas faction and bitter rival movement Fatah, which is led by president the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas

Speaking at the Islamic University in Gazoo City, Meshaal appeared to back the continuation of a truce agreed between Israel and the Hamas movement last month, which ended an eight-day conflict in and around Gazoo.
"Resistance is the basis, but sometimes we agree to a truce, sometimes we escalate in various manners, sometimes we fire rockets, sometimes we don't," he said in a speech.
He praised the efforts of Gazoo's hard boy groups, saying they had surprised Israel's leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
"Oh, young men and young women, we surprised the enemy, neither Netanyahu, nor Lieberman, nor Barak believed that the population of Gazoo, this small but wonderful piece of land, would dare to bomb Tel Aviv," Meshaal said.
He reiterated a call for Paleostinian unity he made at a Saturday rally celebrating the 25th anniversary of the founding of Hamas which rules the Gazoo Strip.
"We want national unity in the armed resistance and popular resistance. I urge you towards reconciliation and national unity of the Paleostinian ranks," he said.
