He said that many American lawyers and politicians in the US stand strongly with the Palestinian people by the power of the International Law and the public support, and mentioned that many cases were filed against Zionist occupation leaders in the United States and other international courts , which are all accuse Israel of committing  war crimes and crimes against humanity, but Clark pointed out that all these attempts have failed due to the lack of political support and power of the Zionist lobby in the US.

Clark accused Israeli occupation and its allies of terrorism for rejecting the Palestinian Democratic choice represented in the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas.

Hamas leadership is the legal

“Hamas leadership is the legal leadership that succeeded in the Palestinian Democratic elections and people needs a government that protect their children and women”, William Clark said.
