"Formal recognition of Israel could only be considered by Hamas once such a Palestinian state is established, Reuters quoted Meshal as saying." - Haaretz Hamas continues with its moderation process. It first agreed to the Prisoners' Document, establishing a state within the '67 lines (essentially adopting Fatah positions) and now will recognize Israel after that. Pressure works to change people's views, as it changes animals' behavior and composition. As far as Israel is concerned, this statement should not have changed much. Israel should push for the establishment of a national unity government in the PA, which would enable it to negotiate with Abbas and reach a peace agreement, while Hamas is on a hudna. This is also the Spanish (now EU) Peace Plan. Instead, Israel is working to intensify the civil war in the Territories, making it impossible to negotiate. Something is rotten in the mind of the Israeli government.
