In a statement, Basim Naim, a member of the Hamas Political Bureau, called Lula a “freedom fighter” and considered his election “a victory for all oppressed peoples around the world, particularly the Palestinian people, as he is known for his strong and ongoing support for Palestinians in all international forums.”
