Hamas: Hey, we ain't no sellouts,bubba!

An AK 47 and the original manual, the Qu'ran - at a Hamas mosque. Just another day in the Religion of Peace.

While a large chunk of the gullible West seems willing to swallow the fiction of the new Palestinian Unity Government, Hamas is going to some lengths to ensure the Islamist brothers that nothing has changed when it comes to Israel.

“There isn’t a chance any Hamas leader will ever recognize Israel,” said outgoing Interior Minister Said Siam. “We will not betray our values and we will not betray our land. We will leave this world as shahids (martyrs) without recognizing Israel.”

Hamas spokesperson Dr. Ismail Radwan also declared that Hamas’ values had not changed. Hamas considers resistance operations to be a strategic option to respond to the enemy’s crimes, Radwan declared.

This seems to follow along the lines Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh expressed, when he said that `resistance' ( terrorism) against Israel was the core of Hamas strategy against Israel and would be exercised 'at a time and place of our choosing.'

Hamas underlined that today with an attack by a Palestinian sniper they took credit for near Kibbutz Nahal Oz, north of the Gaza Strip which moderately wounded an Israeli man, Koby Ohayon, an employee of the Israeli Electrical Company who was conducting infrastructure work at a gas terminal near the kibbutz.

And just a few hours after the shooting incident, Hamas was linked to another terrorist attempt when Egyptian security forces captured a Hamas homicide bomber at the border awaiting orders to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel.

Nor is this duplicity limited to Hamas, as I've pointed out many times.

Money quote:“Today we start a new stage in our national struggle towards establishing an independent Palestinian state. This is the struggle started by the shahid (martyr) Yasser Arafat, and which we are coronating today on the day of our national unity.”

By none other than `moderate' Mahmoud Abbas, just last Saturday.
