Fatah warns against the extreme Islamic movement of Hamas

«Hamas had staged a coup in the Gaza Strip. To legitimize Hamas will harm any chance of achieving peace with Israel».

To talk or not to talk. Not even pretending to talk about the possibility of soon to start talking about peace.

A senior PA official in Ramallah used these words to condemn politicians from the European Union, who works towards the EU legitimizing Hamas. While several Western Powers hardly voices any criticism of Hamas, the Arab Palestinian Authority now brands their Muslim brethren as an «extreme Islamist movement».

The Arab Palestinian Authority did over the weekend expressed concern over Hamas’s growing attempts to gain recognition from the international community. The official warned that meetings between Hamas and Westerners was “playing into the hands” of the movement and undermining efforts to achieve reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah.

«Those who are trying to legitimize Hamas are harming the Palestinian Authority and any chance of achieving peace with Israel», he said.

Hamas officials, meanwhile, said that their group accepts the two-state solution but only as a temporary one. Mahmoud Ramahi, another top Hamas operative in the West Bank, said that his movement was indeed willing to accept an independent Palestinian state within the pre-1967 lines, but only on a temporary basis and without recognizing Israel’s right to exist.

My comment:

Every time the state of Israel is willing to give up land, or compromise on Zionism in a bid to get a peace agreement with the Arab Palestinians, the Muslims starts to fight each other.

The Jewish state has every reason to keep the peace talks at bay. Because it is simply impossible for the Israeli Government to negotiate with a deeply divided enemy, that do not even talk to each other. Neither do they know what they want, nor if there is anybody willing to talk about anything. Like Benjamin Nethayahu said last week.

To talk with the Arab Palestinians, is like talking to someone who sits up in a tree. And every time we try to offer them something to come down and negotiate, they just increase their demands and climb higher.
