"Hamas leaders want peace and they want to have reconciliation not only with their Fatah brothers but also eventually with Israelis to live side by side, with two nations, both sovereign nations recognized by each other and living in peace."Hahahahaha! Look, I want peace in Israel, ok? Really I do. But this is not going to happen, Hamas do not want peace and they will not accept Israel. Let's just remind ourselves of their charter:
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time, an exercise in futility." "Leaving the circle of struggle against Zionism is high treason, and cursed be he who perpetrates such an act." "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight Jews and kill them"And those are just the anti-Zionist parts! Forgive me for being cynical, then. So, no, Hamas should not be removed from the terrorist list, Mr. Carter. He also says:
"My feeling is a feeling of sadness, anger and despair after seeing all this destruction that was caused to innocent people... I know that the Israeli destruction of houses, infrastructure, and factories in Gaza was carried out by American weapons"I wonder what his opinion is on the destruction caused to the not-so-innocent people. And if he knows that those weapons were used to destroy Hamas' weapons... in houses, and factories - not forgetting the mosques and schools of course. He wasn't exaggerating when he said he's in love with the Palestinians, he's blinded by it.
