Here's the thing; he's addressing his "dignity is more important than dollars" riff to police and security officers...whom the Pally government is unable to pay. These security forces are still under President Abbas' (read Fatah's) control, but Hamas is setting up a rival "security" force under the interior ministry's control, which will consist of militants loyal to Hamas and be headed by Jamal Abu Samhadana, the #2 most wanted by Israel. Draw your own conclusions.
