"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." This opposition to Israel in particular, and Jews in general, was a new theme which would keep recurring. There is political opposition to Israel as a Western colony, and religious opposition to Israel as foreign government controlling a portion of Dar al-Islam.
"We're not calling for conflict or the continuation of the bloodbath in this region. We are a government that looks out for the interests of the Palestinian people," Haniyeh said.
Any person, organization, and government that do not strictly follow the HAMAS as well as the Muslim Brotherhood’s interpretation of the Qu’ran are their enemy.
Give the HAMAS a chance”. This is a sentiment that I sincerely wished the world could afford to give them. Unfortunately, as I showed in my first post, HAMAS very roots make it impossible for them to allow any thinking person or government to give them a chance.
HAMAS continues to confine its attacks to Israelis inside Israel and the occupied territories.
[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad: "Allah is the all-powerful, but most people are not aware."
And the Jews will not be pleased with thee, nor will the Christians, till thou follow their creed. 'Say: Lo! the guidance of Allah [himself] is the Guidance. And if you should follow their desires after the knowledge which has come unto thee, then you would have from Allah no protecting friend nor helper." Sura 2 (the Cow) verse 120. There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time(27), an exercise in futility. The Palestinian people are too noble to have their future, their right and their destiny submitted to a vain game. As the Hadith has it:
Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Quzan its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.
"We won't interfere in the Israeli elections and there is no difference between one party and another since all of them are responsible for our miserable situation and all committed crimes against us," Zahar said.
"The important issue for us is bringing (people) who recognize the Palestinian people's rights and work on ending the occupation (to the Palestinian territories) and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," Dahlan said, adding that the Israeli election was an Israeli internal issue.
kenshiro2012 seem to providers the best indicators of what might happen.
both sides ignored the current climate of former terrorist organisations switching to more political means to carry out their mandates, i.e. the IRA, ETA, etc.
This was a tougher debate to judge.
Kenshiro addressed the question more directly
Extremely tight, I had to read it over a few times. Both debates were interesting, well thought out and presented
Chissler [...] admitted that it was possible Hamas would not moderate itself in his closing argument. Kenshiro just kept reciting the past as indication of the future. Chissler should have shown how becoming part of the political process was already changing Hamas
