Tens of thousands of Hamas supporters attend a rally marking the 21st anniversary of the Islamist movement's creation in Gaza City. In an address to the crowds, Ismail Haniya, the head of the Hamas administration in Gaza, boasted that US President George W. Bush's administration had failed to defeat his movement, which had only grown stronger. Busloads of demonstrators flooded into Gaza City from across the densely populated coastal strip to hear Haniya's speech, waving the green flags of the Islamic Resistance Movement.
