Hamas states Gaza is not occupied?[edit]

The claim in the article that Mahmoud Zahar has stated that Gaza is no longer occupied is very dubious, especially when just following the opinion of the UN, ICJ etc. that Israel is still the occupying power. Zahar is not talking about the legal status of the territory. He is talking about the fact that there is no Israeli inside the Gaza strip after the withdrawal. Here is the full quote: "Against whom could we demonstrate in the Gaza Strip? When Gaza was occupied, that model was applicable," Zahhar said.

This in no way supports the claim that Hamas has said that the legal status of the territories has changed. As far as I can see, this claim originated from an op-ed in the Jerusalem post by the executive director UN Watch: http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Op-Ed-Contributors/Hamas-says-Gaza-not-occupied-UN-disagrees

I am rewording the sentence to explicitly cite the op-ed rather than claiming this as self-evident. I have also found this interview where Zahar refers to it as "occupation": http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2009/02/200928195444472727.html Kingsindian (talk) 18:43, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

WHY "Jewish Owned Land" on Map, but NO "Arab owned Land"? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jewish_Land_Ownership_in_Mandatory_Palestine,_1947.svg - Because they want you to get the FALSE impression Arabs owned the rest. - ` 2/3 of what became Israel was STATE LAND under the Ottomans (miri), then British; belonging to NO Arab.. Including ALL of the Negev Desert/which alone/itself became HALF of Israel. ` - — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.254.20.88 (talk) 00:07, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
