Hamas Recognizes Israel……?

Eh….not so fast. When I first read that wild al-Reuters claim reported in the Helsingin Sanomat (subscription only), I just waited for the other shoe to drop, …and it of couse did.

The Haaretz reports that :

Hamas denied Wednesday that its Damascus-based political chief Khaled Meshal told Reuters in an interview that his group would consider recognizing Israel once a Palestinian state is established. One hour after the Reuters interview was published, the Hamas government spokesman Ghazi Hamad told Haaretz that Meshal said, “Israel exists – and that’s a fact.” However, Hamad maintained that Meshal did not say anything about recognizing Israel. “There was no change in our stance that Hamas does not recognize Israel.”

So the al-Reuters piece is highly suspect……as usual. And the Euro Left will heave a collective sigh and hope for that tomorrow that will never come. *L* KGS
