    · Soon after its election, Hamas began to go public with its new position. For example, in May 2006 Haniyeh told Haaretz that the Hamas government would agree to a long-term truce with Israel if it withdrew to the 1967 lines, and a few months later he told an American scholar that "We have no problem with a sovereign Palestinian state over all of our lands within the 1967 borders, living in calm."[11] (emphasis added)

    · Perhaps even more important was the May 2006 joint statement of senior Hamas and Fatah members who were imprisoned in Israel. The prestigious "Prisoner's Declaration" went much further than the earlier Hamas overtures: abandoning the previous ambiguities, it called for the establishment of a Palestinian state "in all the lands occupied in 1967," and reserved the use of armed resistance only in those territories.[12] (emphases added)

    You want to buy a bridge, one owner?

    Just because Israel consistently rejects peace offers does not mean they are never offered.

    I would hope that the international community would enforce any infractions by either side.

    Hamas never made an offer. That is a straight up LIE. In fact they have pretty much been attacking Israel since they illegally seized the area they have. Hamas has STATED for the record they will never remove from their creed the absolute destruction of Israel and the driving of all Jews into the Sea.

    Why? They have done absolutely NOTHING to any Palastinian entity even those that claim to Govern. They continue to pour money into the illegal Government of Hamas and continue to run interference for it on the International front.

    Isn't that the government that was elected? Illegally elected?

    Hamas was NOT elected to run any of Palastine. They used armed force to seize the area they run now, murdering elected officials and Fatah members as they did it, killing police and government officials.
