Rabbinical courts to stop automatically placing financial burden on divorced fathers.02:39 02.12.15 | 0 comments
It's not easy for anyone to make a 180 degree change to long-held positions...especially when there is a theological nd emotional basis to them. In this context, Meshal's words are definitely worthy of further investigation. Obvious gestures, such as the prisoner exchange and a cessation of rocket attacks and checkpoint removals, are one way for both sides to gauge the other. Remember.....Hamas has no interest in seeing Iran emerge as the region's dominant power. The Sunni-Shiite split (not to mention Arab-Persian animosity) is too powerful for such a development to be appealing to them. Nor are they interested in global-Jihad minded Sunni extremists establishing themselves in the area. The Hamas agenda is very different from bin-Laden's. All these developments point to a possible softening of Hamas' position on the conflict and should be encouraged and investigated.
