Khaled Mashaal, the leader of Palestinian militant group Hamas, has said their organization would be willing to offer Israel a 10-year truce if Israel were to remove itself from the lands it seized during the 1967 Middle East War.
Mashaal has said he made the offer on Saturday while speaking with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and while the Hamas leader hinted that a Palestinian state would be limited to the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem there was no outright declaration that they would recognize Israel.
During Carters talk with Mashaal the Hamas leader said his organization would not look to block a peace deal between Palestinian President Moahmoud Abbas and Israel so long as Palestinians favored the deal.
Israel has not responded to Mashaal and view Hamas as the United States does, a terrorist organization. Israel has recognized that a Palestinian state should exist they have never expressed a willingness to return to the borders created prior to 1967.
“Border Reform”?????? That’s rich.
Guess what happens in 11 years?!
That’s sounds like a deal. NOT
Ten year truce? Border “reform”? These jihadist ass-clowns are almost funny!
“Israel has recognized that a Palestinian state should exist they have never expressed a willingness to return to the borders created prior to 1967.”
Nor should they.
Why would you make a deal with a bunch of proven murderers and liars?
LOL. grrrreeeat deal.
Didn’t Muhammed offer a similar 10-year “Hudna” while he prepared to destroy the rival tribes?
Even if Hamas pretended to offer a real peace treaty and not this bogus “10 year” pause the Islamo-jihad scumbags cannot be trusted.
Jimmy Peanut is a dangerous nutjob.
Carter has to be this generation's Neville Chamberlain.
“Why would you make a deal with a bunch of proven murderers and liars?”
Yup, and in one large respect, they’ve been very honest about their real goal of destroying Israel.
How can we tell if the Muzzies are lying?
Don’t need to.
Hamas is straight-up Islaamist, push-Israel-into-the-sea. They’ve always been honest about that.
Jimmuh Carter’s Peace Plan. Extra crispy, please. BTW, did I mention that Jimmy is a liberal/Marxist/Democrat?
I’m not sure what is more entertaining: the hubris of this demand or the cravenness of Carter.
Wow, what a deal!
Israel gives up a bunch of land PERMANENTLY and Hamas “promises” to not blow up Israeli citizens for 10 years, a promise they can’t keep, a promise they don’t want to keep, and a promise that doesn’t mean anything even if they could keep it, since the land is forever and 10 years is only 10 years.
My counteroffer for Hamas would be they would get one more day to consume oxygen for every day they stopped their attacks.
