Hamas Rejects Palestinian Authority Statehood Bid

Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, announced today that they would not support Mahmoud Abbas’ Palestinian Authority attempt to unilaterally declare Palestinian statehood. Hamas isn’t opposing the PA’s attempt because they agree that negotiations with Israel should be primary, of course; they oppose it because it would assume that the Palestinian state would not embrace Tel Aviv, Haifa, and every other inch of Israeli land.

This leaves the Israelis dealing with two varying Palestinian positions. The first is the PA, which demands a return to the pre-1967 borders, surrender of Jerusalem, and a wave of Palestinians into Israel that would swamp the Jewish State. That’s the moderate position. The second position is Hamas, which just wants to destroy Israel outright. Both positions destroy Israel altogether.
