This is very promising news, Israel and Hamas coming to terms on a Palestine State.< br /> RAMALLAH, West Bank -- In an apparent change in long-standing policy, a top Hamas leader said Friday the militant group would accept the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as well as a long-term truce with Israel.

Hamas' statement came as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak described Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as the Palestinians' best chance for peace.

Mubarak's comments could mean warming relations between Israel and an important Mideast peace mediator at a crucial time. It was a marked departure from past comments from Mubarak and other Egyptian officials blaming Sharon for the escalation of violence in the territories.

I find it odd though, over the past 10 years Arafat called for death to all Jews, and now a month after his death, Hamas and Israel have come to terms?

Who was blowing smoke here, was Arafat suppressing the Palestine people for his own gain?

Time will tell, I hope this works out for both sides!
