"Peace Partners" in Their Own Words


In Ha'aretz, July 29, 2011, Mahmoud al-Zahar, a prominent member of Hamas, a terrorist organization which has the stated goal of destroying the Jewish state, is quoted as calling President Mahmoud Abbas's UN bid for statehood within Israel's borders a "political scam." The Ha'aretz article states,

He (Mahmoud al-Zahar) is equally unequivocal on the so-called two-state solution, which aims at an Israeli state and a Palestinian state existing side by side. 'We are not going to recognize Israel. That is very simple. And we are not going to accept Israel as the owner of one square centimeter...'

How does Fatah, which formed a unity government with Hamas this past spring, and is often held up as a "partner for peace" with Israel, weigh in on this "two-state solution?" Nabil Shaath, Head of Foreign Relations in Fatah declared in a July 13, 2011, broadcast, "We will never accept the 'Two States for Two Peoples' solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict."

Fatah is regularly cited as the "moderate" group.
