On September 30th, a conference titled “Promise of the Hereafter – Post-Liberation Palestine” funded by Hamas and sponsored by Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar.
Notably, the “Promise of the Hereafter” conference stated that a Jewish “brain drain” must be prevented as part of the effort to set the stage to realize “Hamas’ strategic vision.”
The Conference resolution further stated that “we [Hamas and Islamic Jihad] must differentiate between Jews who should and should not be killed.”
According to a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), it was organized by the Promise of the Hereafter Institute, established in 2014.
Dr. Issam Adwan, chairman of the conference’s preparatory committee and former head of Hamas’s department of refugee affairs, said that the conference’s recommendations would be presented to the Hamas leadership.
In a statement to the conference delivered by Hamas political bureau member Kamal Abu Aoun, Sinwar stated that “we are sponsoring this conference because it is in line with our assessment that victory is nigh” and that “the full liberation of Palestine from the sea to the river” is “the heart of Hamas’s strategic vision.”
According to MEMRI, the conference’s concluding statement said that the “liberation of Palestine is the collective duty of the entire [Islamic] nation, first and foremost of the Palestinian people. It is [therefore] crucial to formulate a plan for utilizing the nation’s resources and dividing the labor among its different components, each according to its abilities. That is the responsibility of the Council for the Liberation of Palestine.
The Council for the Liberation of Palestine will be headed by a general secretariat, led by a steering council, which, upon the liberation of Palestine, will become an executive council headed by an interim presidential council until the holding of presidential and parliamentary elections and the formation of a new government,” the statement read.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad official Khader Habib said at the conference: “The resistance is engaged in an existential conflict with the Israeli occupation, and it will emerge victorious, as promised by Allah. … The only conflict which the Quran discusses in detail is the conflict between us and the Zionist enterprise, which is the pinnacle of evil on the global level.”
It was a significant conference for Hamas and Islamic Jihad with many claims of what would allegedly happen if Israel were to collapse, but no actual concrete steps for any sort of adequate actions to be undertaken.
It seemed like a way to launder money more than anything since it simply repeated old rhetoric and made few new statements.
