The next time CNN or any other Western media outlet interviews a Hamas leader, it would be advisable to ask him whether his movement was willing to change its charter. Unless Hamas does so, the talk about changes in its strategy only serves to spread the movement’s campaign of deception.

  1. No they're not. Simply put, the world WANTS to agree with hamas. Most global attitudes towards Jews have not changed in 1500 years. All that changes are the excuses for continuing it.

  2. Abbas is just another arm of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Jihad effort to take whatever they can from Israel and then take the rest. Arafat said himself that he is fighting Israel with a new weapon —– politics. Might we call this politics of terror?

  3. Hamas is not fooling too many…the real issue is that most folks in the world don’t like the Jews and really could care less if Israel survives or not; and frankly, many folks wish for the destruction of Israel, both some left wingers and some right wingers agree that they hate the Jews and want the destruction of a Jewish Israel. It is something we need to accept: there are a lot of folks that want us dead or crushed

  4. As much as I hate to say this, Hamas' position is not that unreasonable. It's like when you're being arrested and you start throwing your arms around and shout at the officers: "I didn't do it, let me go!" But they tell you: "Look, first we have to book you and then the judge will take a look at your case. That's the procedure!" Here we have a clearly defined by the international law case of illegal occupation, so first we have to stop that. First of all, before everything else! And then figure out the politics behind the unreasonable demands and the unwillingness o fulfill them.

  5. Occupation? Israel left Gaza years ago. What you are alleging is that wherever Jews are it is "occupied." Israel should have sent gaza back to the dinosaur age – then only mother nature would occupy it with what's left of her roaches

  6. Don't be ridiculous, Gaza is a huge prison, it's a typical WWII ghetto: sealed from the outside, closely watched and tightly controlled so as to create harsh and unlivable conditions for the population. Think regular prison, where the guards, although representing only 5% of the population and controlling less then 3% of the territory, are in complete control of the entire facility.

  7. Well, Grief likes to quote the Mandate, which by Grief's own admission had lost its legality as soon as it was lifted. He dismisses the League Of Nations, the UN altogether, he makes no mention of the ICC rulings regarding Israel, nothing about the refugees legal status… Of course, we know that In 1950, the International Law Commission listed the following sources as forms of evidence to customary international law: treaties, diplomatic correspondence, practice of international organizations, decisions of national and international courts, national legislation, opinions of national legal advisers and Mr. Grief does love to quote him some Israel's own laws…
