A leader of Hamas vowed Monday not to bow to American threats to cut aid, saying the movement did not need "satanic" US money. Mahmoud Zahar also addressed Hamas' much-anticipated social and economic agenda, saying the group intended to fight corruption, eliminate the "tourism of nudity" and use education to promote a culture of resistance "I wish America would cut off its aid. We do not need this satanic money," Zahar told a Cairo conference. "The Qassam Brigades will continue to increase in numbers, supplies and weapons...until the liberation is completed," he said of the group's military wing. He added that Hamas can develop the capabilities of its missiles. "Anyone who thinks the calm means giving in is mistaken. The calm is in preparation for a new round of resistance and victory," he said. "If the enemy has something to offer we will study it, but we will not abide by a truce that is for free."
