Hamas Spells it Out
by Chas Newkey-Burden
In recent years some people have claimed that Hamas is happy to live in peace, provided Israel returns to its pre-1967 borders.
Yesterday, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal spoke at a ‘victory’ rally in Gaza. He emerged from a model of a Hamas rocket, and stood on a stage which represented the whole land of historic Palestine.
He said: “Palestine is ours, from the river to the sea and from the south to the north. There will be no concession on an inch of the land.”
“We will never recognize the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation and therefore there is no legitimacy for Israel, no matter how long it will take.”
Well, at least they have made themselves clear.
