    Once again Hamas demonstrates the Palestinian and Arab world view that only a one-state solution is possible in the resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict; i.e., a state in which Jews are expelled or killed. Period. When will the rest of the so-called peace loving world get this fundamental fact. It is easy for the leaders of Hamas and other groups to sit it Iran and call for never ending war. Their ideologies lack any concern about the lives and fate of the Palestinian Arabs. They can make their violent pronouncements at a safe distance from the battle lines while wasting the lives of those they claim to represent. Since a war with Israel is, in the eyes of Hamas and Iran, a war to the death in which Jews should and would be exterminated then a simple question needs to be asked. Why is not the leadership of Hamas, Iran and those others who support and disseminate such ideas not charged with genocide as called for by the UN's 1948 Declaration against Genocide in which those who foment genocide are equally guilty as those who commit genocide. Once again the world remains silent and the UN demonstrates its hypocrisy. The issue is not about any Jewish settlements on the West Bank since the Palestinian and Arab desire to eradicate Israel goes back to 1948 when Egypt illegally occupied Gaza and Jordan the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The core of the problem is simple: until the Palestinians and their Arab State and now Iranian supporters give up the idea of driving Israel into the sea there cannot and will not be peace. As is stands right now the idea of a two state solution from the Palestinian side is a charade designed to pave the way for a one state solution in which the land is judenrein.
