I've posted a hundred times..Israeli acceptance as a ZIONIST STATE IS POSSIBLE...It's Israel's move! . Hamas: any peace deal with Israel would be 'truce' - Yahoo! News Hamas would consider any Palestinian peace deal with Israel as a truce, the Islamist movement's second-in-command Mussa Abu Marzuk said in a rare interview with American Jewish daily Forward. "We will not recognise Israel as a state," he reiterated during an interview conducted over two days in Cairo, where he has lived since leaving Damascus along with most of the Hamas leadership in exile. Abu Marzuk stressed that while under the reconciliation agreement with Fatah leader and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Hamas did not object to the rival Palestinian faction negotiating with Israel, his movement's position remained that any deal must be put to a referendum of all Palestinians, including refugees. edited- please only snip approx one third of an article, due to copyright issues, thank you.
