    Hamas would consider any Palestinian peace deal with Israel as a truce, the Islamist movement's second-in-command Moussa Abu Marzouk said in a rare interview with American Jewish daily Forward.

    "We will not recognize 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 Marzouk 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.


    "When we reach the agreement, our point of view is, it's a hudna" or truce, Abu Marzouk, the deputy director of Hamas' political bureau, told the Forward.

    After Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin signed the Oslo Accords in 1993, his successor, Benjamin Netanyahu, who opposed it, made many changes, he noted.

    "Let's establish a relationship between the two states in the historic Palestinian land as a hudna between both sides," added the leader of Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip that remains under Israeli blockade.

    "It's better than war and better than the continuous resistance against the occupation. And better than Israel occupying the West Bank and Gaza, making all these difficulties and problems on both sides," he argued.

    Abu Marzouk did not exclude that his position on recognizing Israel could be "completely different" in "10 years."

    Hamas is currently renewing its Advisory Council (Majlis al-Shura), which will select the movement's political bureau.

    Part of the Hamas leadership, particularly in Gaza, accuses the political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal of having agreed to too many concessions toward reconciliation, declaring that he would "give a chance" to negotiations with Israel.

    GAZA, (PIC)-- Ismail Haneyya, the Palestinian premier in Gaza, has said that Israeli occupation has no future on the land of Palestine.

    Haneyya, speaking at a reception for members of aid convoys Miles of Smiles 12 and Ansar 2 after the Friday congregation, affirmed that his government and the Hamas movement would never recognize occupation.

    Wael Al-Saqqa, the head of Ansar 2 aid convoy, said that more aid convoys would be sent from Jordan to Gaza.

    He announced the establishment of a fund for financing small projects with a capital of a quarter of a million dollar that would finance 30 projects, adding that the foundation stone of the first project would be laid down in Khan Younis on Sunday.

    As long as Hamas is part of the deal, Israel will not speak with them or negotiate in any way. Hamas is a terrorist organization, and cannot ever be trusted with any future peace chance.

    "Terrorist" is Israeli propaganda bullshit.

    Hamas will not recognize Israel's "right" to occupy Palestine. Anyone else in the world would feel the same way. Why should Hamas be any different?

    99% of the world see Hamas as a terrorist organization.

    Most of the world recognizes Israel's right to exist, except for Muslims and puppets of Muslims who wish to harm Jews out of hatred and Antisemitism.

    Israel exists, Hamas is a terrorist organization.

    No they don't. It is a "western" thing. The UN does not.

    No they don't. About 130 countries recognize Palestine. About 90 countries recognize Israel.
