Hamas rejects US President Obama’s demand to recognize Jewish state, says US favors Israel at expense of Palestinian freedom.
Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri responded to US President Barack Obama AIPAC speech Sunday, saying that “the American government has failed in the past, and will continue to fail in its attempt to convince Hamas to recognize the Israeli occupation.
“They have a clear preference for Israel, at the expense of the freedom of the Palestinian people and its right for self-definition and the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state,” he said.
In the speech made during the AIPAC conference Sunday, Obama slammed the Fatah-Hamas unity deal. “The recent agreement between Fatah and Hamas poses an enormous obstacle to peace,” he said. “No country can be expected to negotiate with a terrorist organization sworn to its destruction.
President Obama has failed to convince any of the “peace partners” presented to Israel, that peace is around the corner.
Hamas want the International community to recognize Arab Palestinians in Gaza as a “peace partners”, who strangely enough works for the destruction of Israel. That is a heavy camel to swallow. In fact to big, even for Obama.
What is the solution?
Obama’s search for a compromise will continue. The rebranding of Hamas will lead to their “acceptance” of the 1967 borders, and a recognition of mini-Israel if Israel recognize Hamas.
The Islamic terrorist organization is permitted by “allah” to tell lies, as long as they more or less secretly keep on pushing for the final destruction of Hamas.
The temptation or reducing Israel to a state at the size of a large conzentration camp will be a too big temptation for Iranian backed Hamas.
