As mentioned here previously, the Palestinian News Agency Ma’an recently reported that a celebration rally to mark the 25th anniversary of Hamas is due to be held on Thursday, December 13th, in Schem (Nablus) – with the Palestinian Authority’s blessing. 

The short film below shows a Hamas event which already took place on December 10th 2012 at Birzeit University near Ramallah.

On December 5th another event was held at the same university to celebrate Hamas’ “victory” in Operation ‘Pillar of Cloud’, with photographs posted on the Al Qassam Brigades website.  

British readers may be interested to know that an organization called ‘Friends of Birzeit University holds charitable status in the UK and that students’ associations in some seven British universities are twinned with their peers in Birzeit.
