    Ignoring the evidence of contradictory statements by various Hamas people on a range of issues and imagining this is actually, the one party position that they all agree on. How exactly will Hamas make such a committment to a nation it does not recognise? Is Hamas committing to disarming all non PA government forces to ensure this has any meaning? How will Hamas make such a committment to a state, it does not recognise? Ignoring the fact that the world agrees with Israel, that it cannot have secure borders without a peace, how would Hamas ensure Israel had secure borders without a peace? By agreeing to limit it's military capability, not having any foreign military associations ...? How would Hamas make this committment to a nation it did not recognise? All Hamas is saying that they want Israel to end occupation, but they have no intention of recognising Israel within the next 50 years, if ever.
