A former member of Hamas was interviewed about his views towards Israelis and Palestinians:
“You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never have peace with Hamas. Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews. They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death.”
A pragmatist would tell you to recognize the reality and behave accordingly… what do you think?
