Hamas is under pressure twice over, from both the worsening domestic situation in the Strip and the militant organization potentially losing its main threat against Israel.23:32 03.05.16 | 0 comments
by having Syria and Israel state, in Arabic, Hebrew and English, each sides acceptance of the other's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Arabs of Syria and of the Jewish people respectively. Until and unless the Syrians makes such a statement, that would be based on League of Nations decisions and United Nations resolutions as well as the universally accepted right of all peoples to national self-determination and independence, including that of the Jewish people of course, there is no reason to trust the Syrians. In 1948 the Syrians invaded Israel with the full intention of annihilating it. It did so again in 1967, and again in 1973, using the Golan in all of these cases as a launching ground from which to attempt the elimination of the Jewish state, always as part of larger coalitions of armed forces. Syria is presently a major component of such a coalition, Iran-Hizballah-IslamicJihad-Hamas-Syria, that has declared in broad daylight its intention!!!
