So, it might come as no surptise to you that I am intellectually delighted to bring you the words of the Hamas PM of "Palestine":-
In a defiant speech delivered to a teeming crowd of Hamas supporters, the Palestinian prime minister, Ismail Haniya, insisted on Friday that his Hamas movement would not recognize Israel despite the cutoff in Western aid that has strangled his government.
Mr. Haniya nearly collapsed during his speech on Friday, apparently because he was fasting for Ramadan.
“I tell you with all honesty, we will not recognize Israel, we will not recognize Israel, we will not recognize Israel,” Mr. Haniya said to thunderous applause from tens of thousands of supporters, many waving green Hamas flags, at the Yarmouk soccer stadium in Gaza City.
Now, what would the recognition of Israel mean to Hamas if they would do so? Would it hurt them?
Anybody spot someone who would coexist with Israel here?
