    Despite the bogus claims of some Hamas apologists here, the duly-elected terror-rat gov't of "Palestine" has once again stated they have no interest in rational discussions which could end the suffering of those hapless "Palestinians." Peaceful coexistence just isn't on their agenda:
    Hamas PM blasts Palestinian leader over TV remarks

    By DIAA HADID | Associated Press – 22 hrs ago

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The prime minister of the Hamas-ruled Gaza strip criticized the Palestinian president on Friday for comments given to Israeli media, alleging that they contradict longtime Palestinian territorial demands.

    Ismail Haniyeh said Friday that Mahmoud Abbas' remarks, aired on Israel's Channel 2, were "extremely dangerous."

    Abbas, who was speaking about borders of a future Palestinian state, said the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem are Palestine — and the rest is Israel.

    He said that while he would like to see his birthplace — Safed, now a town in northern Israel — he doesn't want to live there.

    "I am a refugee but I am living in Ramallah. I believe that the West Bank and Gaza is Palestine. And the other parts is Israel," Abbas said. "I want to see Safed. It is my right to see it but not to live there," he said.

    Palestinian officials did not return calls seeking comment. But Abbas's remarks broadly reflect the official Palestinian position of reaching an agreement where refugees will receive compensation while a smaller amount would be allowed back.

    Gaza's Islamic militant Hamas movement, alongside many other Palestinians, said Abbas' remarks suggested millions of refugees and their descendants would not return to the places they fled in wars with Israel.

    If it were up to me, I would consider Gaza & the West Bank as Palestine. But never again will East Jerusalem be a part of it. Look what happened last time Israel agreed to that.

    Abbas has clearly deliniated the postion of the non-Hamas "Palestinians" of which he may be the only one. Nonetheless it was a courageous move by Abbas and now the "Palestinians" have a very clear choice to make. More of the same with Hamas or a chance for a better future.

    Abbas left the government in 2007 and Fatah got trounced in the last legitimate elections.

    So, who does Abbas speak for?

    Abbas is a political leader ----recognized as such by some people living on the west bank----and probably by some people in Gaza He likes to pretend that he is very moderate---he is probably playing a game ------

    Then why does the world recognize him as the Palestine leader? And don't answer with your usual BS answers.
