Hamas wants talks with Europe and the US
Telegraph (London) ^ | Feb. 4, 2010 | By Philippe Agret, in Gaza City for AFP

"Hamas is ready to dialogue with the world, international community, the US, the (Middle East) Quartet and the Europeans," Haniya [Palestinian Prime Minister and leader of the Palestinian Islamist movement] said Wednesday.

The Islamist movement, which has been in power in the Gaza Strip since June 2007 after a week of vicious street battles with Fatah loyalists, remains a pariah of the international community. It is considered a terrorist organisation by the United States and the European Union refuses to hold formal talks with the group. One of the main obstacles to opening a dialogue is the Islamists' refusal to recognise Israel's right to exist, a position inscribed in Hamas's founding charter.

The international community demands an explicit recognition. "They have to recognise us first, the right of the Palestinian people, we are the victims," said the 48 year-old, who merely repeated that Hamas supports "the establishment of a Palestinian state with the 1967 borders". The Palestinians want their future state based on borders before the Arab-Israeli war of June 1967, with its capital in east Jerusalem, which is predominantly Arab and was annexed by Israel in the conflict. The Hamas prime minister said his movement had come "closer in political terms" to conditions issued by the Quartet - the US, EU, Russia and the United Nations - to open dialogue, including a "long-term ceasefire".

Hamas has stopped rocket attacks against the Jewish state since the end of Israel's devastating offensive against the Palestinian enclave a year ago. Haniya said he was determined to "establish Palestinian reconciliation and to have fair elections... in all Palestinian homes, including Jerusalem".

Regarding "reconciliation, it is moving. It needs a strong push to reach a signature" with Fatah, the rival movement headed by the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas.

"It is no secret that the US and Israel do not want reconciliation but we are committed to reach it." (Haniya)

"Hamas was created in 1987 by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi and Mohammad Taha of the Palestinian wing of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood."

I wonder if Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi is any relation to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud who paid for the American President Obama's Harvard Law School Education. Perhaps, instead, Sheikh Ahmed is also a relative of Sheikh Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden who is the leader of those who attacked the American homeland on 9/11.

Hmm....any relationship between these three muslim Princes/Sheikhs, four if you count Barack Hussein Obama, after all I'm SURE he's a muslim, I know he's a member of the Black Muslim Brotherhood (of Kenya AND USA) and I imagine he's well on his way to earning his own Sheikhdom.

I guess Palestinian Prime Minister Haniya has forgotten that America does not sit down with terrorists of heads of terrorist states (at least not publically).

Oh yeah and here’s a little hamas history on BHO:

2008 Obama is forced to cut ties with Robert Malley, his foreign policy advisor after the latter told the Times of London that he had been in regular contact with Hamas.

Hamas sounds a lot like Obammy.
They want “dialog”, but only his way.

BINGO! I remember several years ago what the Goat F$#&er Yassar was alive. Hammas was loosing leaders on a weekly basis. Israel was bombing the leaders cars weekly. It was a beautiful site.
