Now let me get this straight. For years Hamas has been shunning negotiations and pursuing a violent course. Now they are threatening more violence if the Israelis don’t negotiate. Hey, nice way to show your new moderate colors, Haniyeh!
From the Jerusalem Post, :
Hamas sources warned on Thursday that if Israel did not begin its negotiations with the Palestinians, they would return to their armed struggle.
Furthermore, Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced in his inauguration on Wednesday that all members of his government were “potential shahids (martyrs).”
That will be quite a spectacle: cabinet members blowing themselves up on buses.
