This seems as a rare independent step of real politics of the EU, to start mid level talks with Hamas. Whether we like it or not, Hamas has been for quite a while "incountournable" in Palestinian society. Talking with them will probably strengthen the more moderate elements in the political wing of the organisation. As for the European Union paying lip service to its "muslim invaders" and once again proving its apparently inherent anti-semitism, anyone who knows a tiny little bit about political and demographic reality knows that this is pure disinformation and simply totally wrong. Those who claim that one should not talk to Hamas because its statutes say that it wants all of the state of Israel being eradicated, should be consequent and ask for the same treatment of - amongst other Israeli groups - Likud politicians (meaning also the current leadership of the State of Israel). Isn?t it the Likud statutes that call for the establishment of a Jewish state on all of "Eretz Israel", thus statutory denying any right of self-determination of Palestinians on Palestinian land ?
