Hamas is a recognized terrorist organization, even the EU admits this officially. But behind the scenes, the Europeans are desperately trying to give Hamas the European taxpayer’s money to finance terrorism like in the past with the cherished Arafat. Fur this purpose, Xavier Solana, an arch-enemy of the State of Israel, advised Hamas to join formally a unity government so that the millions of Euros can flow again. Meshal’s comments had exactly this aim. Nothing has changed since 1988 when Hamas wrote its charter and stated explicitly its aim, namely the destruction of Israel. PM Olmert is completely right on this point. As long as Iran’s proxies, the Hamas terrorists, are not crushed, there will be no room for peace discussions with the Palestinian Arabs.
