    ?Though the numerous interviews and political statements that Hamas leaders have given in Cairo, Gaza and Damascus have sometimes been confused and full of contradictions,? This means that they want to create confusion. If their intentions were good, they would make them clear. ? they nevertheless allow one to clearly discern what is happening to the movement. Its leaders are aware of the urgings of the Arab countries and the international community, but are sticking to the opinion that there is no possibility that they will recognize the State of Israel? This is the goal they have in their charter. The repeated it during the electoral campaign and once the outcome of the elections was known. ? However, the tone of their statements has changed. Now, for instance, the Hamas leaders say that the problem is not whether they will recognize Israel, but whether Israel will recognize the rights of the Palestinians.? This shows that Hamas sticks to its goal and has found this pretext, because it is not true that Israel doesn?t recognize a ?Pal? state. Israel is constantly demonstrating the opposite.
