Declares “There is No Other Way but to Sacrifice Our Souls“
I take it then that means negotiations for peace are out of the question?
excerpts from MEMRI:
“Hamas will lead the entire nation with a new policy and a new strategy. We will say to the Arabs and Muslims, both the leaders and the people: ‘Let us make use of Hamas’ victory.’ Hamas’ victory does not constitute a predicament for the Arabs and Muslims, it instills strength in them. Let us make use of this in order to outline a new strategy, with which we will address the world, and force it to respect us. The days of enslavement are gone.”
- Khaled Mashal, known around here as “keep moving”.

Then there’s an interesting interview with another Terrorist, about Hamas’ keen ability to speak from two sides of the same mouth, I posted ad nauseum about that here under Propaganda War
Marzouq: Our Rejection of Negotiations Has Nothing to Do With Religious Law, but With Interests
Interviewer: “Hamas has to determine its position. Does it support a state within the 1967 borders – the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and Jerusalem as the capital – or does it support a state within the 1948 borders?”
Musa Abu Marzouq: “We presented a platform…”
Interviewer: “Because Hamas is talking in two voices – to the Palestinians it says 1948, and to the foreigners it says 1967.”
Musa Abu Marzouq: “No, no. Hamas… Hamas is clear on this matter. Hamas believes that historical Palestine, that is, all of Palestine, belongs to the Palestinian people.”
Interviewer: “‘Historical Palestine’ means 1948.”
Musa Abu Marzouq: “We say that all of Palestine, from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, belongs to the Palestinians. They have a legitimate right to this land.”
Interviewer: “That’s the voice directed at your own people, while the voice directed outside speaks about 1967.”
Musa Abu Marzouq: “We use one voice in all forums. But we also say that we are dealing realistically with the current phase – an independent Palestinian state with full sovereignty over the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. That is what we presented to our people in our elections platform.”
Interviewer: “Is this a partial or phased solution?”
Musa Abu Marzouq: “Yes, it is a temporary and phased solution. This is not the permanent solution.”
