"Hamas might have been open to reconciliation a few years ago, and it was open to accepting any peace deal Abbas made two years ago." When and where was Hamas ever "open" to reconciliation? When it overthrew Fatah in a violent coup in Gaza, perhaps? When and where was Hamas ever "open to accepting any peace deal Abbas made two years ago"? Are you referring to Hamas' old, short-lived assertion that it would accept any "Palestinian State" negotiated by Abbas, perhaps? Hamas never has, and never will, agree to accepting the existence of Israel in the middle east. Stop spewing the lies and deceptions, Mark, and stop making everthing wrong with the universe Israel's fault. We've heard the same nonsense from you tens of thousands of times already...how Israel destroyed Abbas, how Israel has never allowed for peace where everyone else wanted it, how Cast Lead was ineffective, and on and on and on. We get it Mark. You hate Israel. We got it, alright? We got it! We got it! We got it!
