    Khalid Mesha'al's Reuters interview coupled with the words of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin (PBUH), reiterated by PM Haniyeh, about a long term truce and reevaluation of the Hamas charter by a future generation, can be cautionly accepted as being in concert with the Beirut Declaration. Such a position puts Hamas ahead of Likud, which still forbids Palestinian rights and sovereignty. "Respecting" past agreements is spot on since it is the bigger goal to conduct and conclude a final resolution within months. (al-Nakba 2008?) With the bottom line definition of terrorism being the Kamakaze against civilians...knowing that Sderot would prefer a broader definition as would Ramallah, Nablus and Jenin...it is baffling why Hamas cannot the find words to renounce a thing it has not practiced since Aug 2004. Such words are all that remain for full international cooperation. The next task the world will be looking for is Consolidation, the Palestinian method of choice for disbanding partisan militias.
