    "When Hamas refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist, one opens one's eyes to reality." (Nadav) We never heard President Sadat nor King Hussein, recognizing Israel's right to exist, neither before nor after we agreed to negociate and make our peace with them, and gave up our fight to keep under our control the land we had captured from them. I just can't see any reason at all for demanding now from the Palestinians they should be the first to recognize such a right, unless of course, as an excuse for trying to keep for us as big a chunk of the West Bank as possible. By the way, you don't seem to be at all aware of the fact that in the UN Resolution 273 of May 11, 1949, by which Israel was admitted to membership in the United Nations, not one word is to be found, recognizing the Jewish state's right to exist. See for yourself: www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/UN/unga273.html I can only wonder to which reality will this fact make yours eyes to open.
