Hamas Speaks

Yet again it's a question of whether or not people are listening to what Hamas are saying- or if they are continuing to hear what they want to hear. Cognitive dissonance in action I guess. How many times will Hamas have to declare their intent on destroying Israel before people stop thinking that a return to the 1967 borders and any other Israeli concessions to terrorists will cause peace to bloom?

The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas rejected on Monday criticism by al Qaeda's second-in-command and said it was still committed to Israel's destruction despite a power-sharing deal with the Fatah faction.

"We will not betray promises we made to God to continue the path of Jihad and resistance until the liberation of Palestine, all of Palestine," Hamas said in a statement, in a clear reference to Israel as well as to the occupied West Bank.

So much for the moderating effect of Hamas actually being in power. And what are Hamas anyway, some kind of Islamophobes who think that jihad is all about warfare?
