6. #2 educate yourself
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (11.26.12)
Read Article 11 and 13 of the Hamas charter below, and tell me what the negotiations should be about Article 11 the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf.... It, or any part of it, ...should not be given up. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king or president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organization nor all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that. Palestine is an Islamic Waqf land consecrated for Moslem generations until Judgement Day.... Any procedure in contradiction to Islamic Sharia, where Palestine is concerned, is null and void. Article 13 Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of Hamas. Abusing any part of Palestine is abuse directed against part of Islam....There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time.
7. #6. Well aware
Tim ,   Brighton   (11.26.12)
Of course the Charter is anathema But the Charter is not written in stone Though its negation clearly is a prerequisite to normalising relations This should not though stop the talking
8. No doubt, some guarantees from Great Powers will be needed.
Michael ,   California, USA   (11.26.12)
The U.S. and Britain are in good position to step in, if asked, through the UN perhaps? Eventually, only close supervision by the Great Powers can guarantee long-term progress toward peace in the region.
9. Egypt can guarantee Hamas compliance,only
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (11.26.12)
I think that Morsi has sleepwalked right into a trap that's going to lead to Egypt taking control of the Gaza Strip.That's the only way that he can ensure that Hamas complies with the terms of of the agreement that he's so proud of. But forcing compliance on Israel is another matter altogether,because: Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty,Article VI... 4. The Parties undertake not to enter into any obligation in conflict with this Treaty. 5. Subject to Article 103 of the United Nations Charter in the event of a conflict between the obligation of the Parties under the present Treaty and any of their other obligations, the obligations under this Treaty will be binding and implemented. If Morsi doesn't like that,he should have read the Treaty first before committing himself. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
10. Hamas Charter not written in stone?
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (11.26.12)
It certainly is set in stone.The terrorists' stone hearts. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
11. #5 ab Dondula WTF Are You Taking About?
Total Defeat? Oh so Israel DESTROYED 1000 Terroroist Haven's and hamas Claims Victory? Israel Has Been A Sovereign Nation, since before the best part of your pedophile, maurading, murder so-called prophet ran down his baba's leg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Masalami Gochba
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (11.27.12)
BACK! What are the points of these meetings? Gaza is Egypt and it should be. Otherwise, this is a real waste of time for another 64 years to come.
13. Israel And Hamas Speak To Each Other Directly
Tim Upham ,   Tum Tum, WA   (11.28.12)
Do not have Egypt be a third party, Egypt should order that Israel and Hamas speak to each other directly. That is the only way this will be resolved. Mohammed Morsi says he will honor the 1979 peace accords with Israel, and called upon Hamas to follow it as a role model for coexistence. President Morsi, here is your chance!
