Hamas leader vows to continue jihad

GAZA, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal, marking the group's 25th anniversary with his first visit to Gaza, told a massive rally Saturday "jihad is the way to liberation."

"Resistance is the means not the end ... for 64 years we have tried all other options but to no avail ... there is no victory without resistance," the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency quoted him as telling the crowd estimated in the tens of thousands.

"Jihad is the way to liberation, along with all types of national and diplomatic struggle ... there is no value for all those types without resistance."

Meshaal extended an olive branch to its rival, Fatah. The two groups have been at odds since armed clashes between the two broke out in 2007.

"Reconciliation means the unity of the political program ... one president and one parliament and one representative, which is the PLO ."

Meshaal said he supports national elections but Hamas should be a political partner whatever the outcome.

He continued Hamas' hard line against Israel.
