Hamas could make the very same arguments about Israel, that its constitution and charter calls for the creation of a Talmudic Kingdom extending from the Nile to the Euphrate. I don't think evoking and invoking these things is the right way to start a dialogue. Both sides have a huge reservoirs of mistrust vis-a-vis the others side. But if you want a ceasefire, Hamas says it is willing for a ceasefire. WIll Hamas use the truce to get stronger? Well, so what. Israel, too, will do the same thing. Besides, Israel is a nuclear state and more or less controls the world's superpower. Israel can defend itself in all circumstances. In short, Israel doesn't want peace with the Palestinians. Israel wants them to surrender unconditionally. And that will never happen.
