1. typical arab terrorist
gm ,   south africa   (05.12.06)
he must think that israel is a fool. he openly says that hamas won't recognise israel's right to exist, but it will say that it does just so it can get what it wants. what people do says a lot more than what they say, so basically what hamas 'says' is that they are just trying to be more conniving and under-handed.
2. They will tell the Europeans whatever they want to hear
while to their own people they will continue saying that Israel would be wiped off the map.
3. we don't need your preudo-recognition
4. What's it to be?
Talula ,   Israel   (05.12.06)
Well now. We have on the same page of the news that Hamas suports a state next to Israel, then three news items down we have them saying that Hamas and Fatah should unite to fight Israel. Hurry up with the wall, cut off ALL supplies to them and be done with it already.
5. Interesting
Arie   (05.12.06)
hamass offering a "palestine" next to an Israel it doesn't believe exists. Now there's a fantasy!
7. No Truth
dave kafir ,   dallas texas USA   (05.12.06)
There is no truth to anything islamic people say. Go here and look at the real face of islam: There will be no peace until islam reforms itself out of the 7th century barbarism that it embraces. But take heart good people of the world, many, many more muslims will die than jews or christians or hindus or buddists. Where is the great muslim airborne ballistic laser system? How about the great muslim carrier task force? What is the status of the great muslim space station? These things do not exist because the muslims only learn to lie cheat steal and murder women and children. islam gaurantees ignorance and so in the great war against islam to come the muslims will die in huge numbers. muslims see how the USA stomped you in Afganistan and Iraq? Rolled over the best muslim warriors like ordinary bugs. The USA and Israel will smash you like bugs everywhere you try to fight us. And you know it. You muslims have no respect , no dignity. that is why you are angry, muslim are angry at themselves because they have nothing but dirt and goats. Muslims try to blame everyone else for their problems to falsly generate dignity and respect, but it is sad, there is none for the islamic people everywhere because islam is so far behind the rest of the world and islamic countries are the worst places in the world for anybody to live. Islam is so ignorant it will ask the world to crush it like what happened to the Nazis. I hope the crushing will happen soon.
8. Hamas Trojan Horse
Brod ,   Marshall, USA   (05.12.06)
This is all about Hamas Trojan Horse art of deception in accomplishing Islamists-Jihadists' goal of wiping off Israel. Israel should never fall into their trap. The same Islamists-Jihadists Trojan Horse tactic is being applied in Europe as part of their strategy to subdue Europe. Read "The Force of Reason" by noted Italian Journalist Oriana Fallaci. They do it by way of the Trojan Horse, exploding demographics and terrorisms. Israel should not be distracted by the deceptive peace proposal but rather should focus on the major issues that pertain to their security, existence and survival in the face of Iran's plan of wiping off Israel with their nuke as proclaimed by their leaders (Read P.224, "World on Fire" by Amy Chua).
9. They just checked Arafat's old files and speeches that
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (05.12.06)
were many times written by the glorious Jimmy Carter - the peanut farmer - for he wanted the Palis sound better - so USA and EU will accept them. So here we go again - the Arafat Saga all over again - then they whisper in Arabic - Jihad Jihad millions walk to Jerusalem - But when are those politicians are going to get the message ??????? Only when the Eiffel Tower and the whole nine yards go up in smoke and then again - they will search who really is as fault - they must have had a bad childhood They'll say
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (05.12.06)
Sworn to Israel's destruction, Hamas will say anything to get U.S. and European TAX dollars. Hamas knows that words, not actions, was all that America and Europe required of PLO/Palestinian Authority terrorist organization, who broke ALL agreements. For many years, American and European tax dollars financed the war against the Jews. The military wing of Palestinian Authority Abbas's Fatah party, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, is responsible for massive terrorist atrocities against Jewish innocents. U.S. EU, UN and Russia demand Israel give half of her tiny land to Islamofascists. The land in Gaza, Israel surrendered to the Islamo-Fascists has been transformed into Hamastan - terrorist training camps and a base for global terrorists. The U.S. EU, UN, and Russia with a political/religious agenda of forcibly removing the hated Infidel Jews from the Biblical heartland seek to duplicate in Judea and Samaria what Islamic terrorists were empowered to achieve in Gaza. The Hamas goal is conquest of Israel and Europe: HAMAS Targets Spain By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld | January 2, 2006 It is not only Palestine that children in the West Bank and Gaza are asked to liberate; now they are asked to liberate Seville. The HAMAS children’s magazine, Al-Fateh, in a recent issue, (No. 66), tells the children about the city called Asbilia (Seville) and calls on them to free it, together with the whole country, from the infidels and to reinstate Muslim rule... Qaradawi, calls on Muslims to conquer Europe, saying: “Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and a victor... Apparently encouraged by successful Jihad against Israel, HAMAS is now raising the ante, going international. Just as they have indoctrinated a generation of Palestinian children to commit suicide attacks against Israelis, they are now expanding their targets to include the rest of the Caliphate – beginning with Spain. It is only a matter of time, before today’s Palestinian children, and others exposed to HAMAS’ publications start offering themselves up for the next stage of Jihad in Spain.
11. #6 Liars
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
Well put! They want to be "next to Israel" but Israel does not exist, but they want wipe out Israel. The Palestinians should hold a new election.
12. #6 Liars, Liars, Liars!
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
Quote from Al Jazeera this today: "We should rather target a Jew or an Israeli instead of targeting our brothers from the Arab and Islamic nations" - Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas spokesman,7340,L-3250052,00.html
13. Note the difference from the Quartet formula
Shai ,   Israel   (05.12.06)
The Quartet formula says "side by side _in peace_". Clear as day, then, what Hamas intends.
14. To #12 And how can u explain repressing ppl in the name of
Muhammad-Ali ,   Montreal   (05.12.06)
15. To #10 Hamas doesnèt need to conquer Europe to make it
Muhammad-Ali ,   Montreal   (05.12.06)
Islam, Europe will demographically become Islamic by itself.
16. give me a break...
marianne ,   Colorado, USA   (05.12.06)
17. Palestine is already next to Israel: it's called Jordan.
sk ,   USA   (05.12.06)
18. Hamas rhetoric
Hilda ,   USA   (05.12.06)
If Israel falls for this latest garbage, they deserve what they get.
19. Global bully dictates to the EU
Jenny ,   NYC   (05.12.06)
" Hamas committed to maintaining calm among the Palestinian factions, and enforcing the Islamic Jihad, which has been responsible for all suicide bomb attacks in Israel in the past year, to refrain from terrorism, on the condition that financial aid was renewed." So either pay us or we will launch suicide bombs. Is this guy a PM or a Mafioso??? What a shame. Can't wait for the EU to cave. Don't say you didn't see it coming.
20. To #14 - Explain what
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
Go back and read my comment - I did not mention doing anything in the name Judiasm. Apparently the Hamas spokesman thinks "Jews and Israelis" should be targets. Aside from Israeli Jews I can only assume I am part of that group, since I am also a Jew. I suppose he is also including Israeli Arabs too. Would you want a "neighbor" who thinks you should be a "target"?
21. #15 - Hamas doesn't need to conquer Europe...
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
Maybe you're right, Europe may become Islamic by itself. Is that the goal? To conquer the world - and force everyone to abide by your laws? To "advance" Europe to the 10th century? Hey - ever notice that Arab/Islamic newspapers don't allow a "talk back" section?
22. To #20 What abt a neighbor who wants to take ur land
Muhammad-Ali ,   Montreal   (05.12.06)
and is killing ur children.
23. To #21
Muhammad-Ali ,   Montreal   (05.12.06)
1. It's not my fault if we get more children than the European. 2. We brought Europe from the dark ages to the "light ages" and if we were still in the 10th century, I wouldn't be using a PC and Pakistan wouldn't have had the nuclear bomb. 3. JPost didn't have a talkback feature until last year.
24. To Muhammad #22
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
C'mon Muhammad - be honest - do you believe that Israel is aiming for children? Suicide cowards that board a bus are INTENTIONALLY targetting civilians, including children. Are you opening a debate about who the land belongs too? Spare yourself the embarrassment. By the way - where were you born?
25. to #23 Muhammad
Robby ,   San Jose, USA   (05.12.06)
1. I didn't say it was your fault, I asked you if that was the plan. 2. Are you sending this from an Arab/Islamic country or a Western one? You're in Canada my friend. And speaking of Pakistan - would you like to live there? I doubt it. 3. What is your point? What does that have to do with the Jerusalem Post?
26. Isarael was re-named Palestine by the Romans.
Palestiniansareamyth ,   USA   (05.13.06)
So there is no Palestine! Arabs need to go back to Arabia!
27. Why is it ESSENTIAL that HAMAS recognize Israel?
howard ,   pacific coast, usa   (05.13.06)
The whole point of RECOGNIZING Israel is NOT the words! The point is that Hamas makes a clear and convincing statement to its own people and to the world that it has given up on its genocidal dream (a.k.a. nightmare) of destroying Israel. The words themselves are NOTHING. The reason why recognition is essential is that to successfully put -- to its own people -- the case for recognizing Israel, Hamas members would be forced to change their mindset to one that was not irrevocably genocidal. They would have to introduce into the radical Islamist dialog a set of concepts that would allow coexistence with Israel and indeed with Jews, middle eastern minorities and westerners. Without recognition, such a change will not happen, and there will be no end to terrorism or to the required military response. This "compromise" does NOTHING to achieve such things, and is therefore utterly worthless. The reason they refuse to recognize Israel is that they still hope to destroy it, still plan to destroy it, and cannot conceive of a world in which they would ever accept its existence. Plain. And. Simple. Thank you ever so much, Russia. We're SOOOOOOOOOOOOO grateful that you intervened. Should we send the bodies of the terror victims to the Kremlin?
28. #26 stop your rambling!
Shai ,   T-A   (05.13.06)
The real world exist even from the US : go to the territories and tell the natives they don't exist... yes, today, palestinians exist and are a nation. Maybe they were not one in 1948 but nations have a beginning. After all, the US didn't exist in 1775 and nobody says that the legitimate owners of america are the indians.
29. 28 Shai ,T-A : Yossi's and Uri's Gopher is bathing in his
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (05.13.06)
Liberal Left nonsense again - as usual - he doesn't care that his brêthren gets murdered en-masse Shai - is your second name - Ahmed move to your friends the PA/ Arabs
30. Muhammad-Ali: As usual has NO clue - why don't you move to
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (05.13.06)
Ramallah - since you are obviously not happy in western society - all you do is foster support for terrorism
