    You will have Zionists move the goal post each time Palestinians make concessions. Hamas will recognize Israel today and tomorrow a new demand will arise. Who knows, maybe demand Hamas members shave their beards and curl their sideburn. To me it's all smoke and mirrors, Meshal is correct to demand recognition of Israel COMES AFTER PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD. To the sane people, this make perfect sense whereby recognition of Israel becomes AN OFFICIAL ACT OF THE STATE OF PALESTINE and not just whistleing dixie between talking heads--who you never know might get poisened or end up in a coma the next day. Only THE STATE OF PALESTINE CAN RECOGNIZE ISRAEL. Hamas, PLO or the dozen other organizations speak for themselves but ONLY A PALESTINIAN STATE AND GOVERNMENT CAN SPEAK for the people. If Zionists had any brains, they would be working tirelessly to establish such a state inorder to remove any doubt about Israel's legitimacy. There will always be groups in Israel and Palestine who will refuse recognizing one another. That's not the issue, Jews have a state on Palestine while Palestinians inherit a brutal military occupation that enables the occupiers to usurp more land. That is the issue, ending the occupation and not quibbling over semantics about recognizing Israel when ISRAEL not only doesn't recognize a Palestinian state but has worked to erase such a reality with daily land grabs. What Zionists want is our annihilation and I'm sorry if Hamas or other resistance forces don't make their job any easier.
