Hudna reported The leader of Hamas said Monday that his Palestinian militant group would offer Israel a 10-year "hudna," or truce, as implicit proof of recognition of Israel
Even though he said they would never recognize Israel.
if it withdrew from all lands it seized in the 1967 Middle East War.
Maybe they should not have attacked Israel. Would the arabs be willing to give up all the land they took in war, and go back to Saudi Arabia?
Khaled Mashaal told The Associated Press that he made the offer to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter
Dhimmi. Say that rimes with Jimmy. Jimy the Dhimmi.
in talks on Saturday. "We have offered a truce if Israel withdraws to the 1967 borders, a truce of 10 years as a proof of recognition," Mashaal said. In his comments Monday, Mashaal used the Arabic word "hudna," meaning truce, which is more concrete than "tahdiya" — a period of calm — which Hamas often uses to describe a simple cease-fire. Mashaal said Hamas would accept a Palestinian state limited to the lands Israel seized in 1967 — that is, the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.
In other words they want Fatah to give up the West Bank, and Israel to pull out of Jerusalem and the West Bank, so it can all be ruled by Hamas, that had the Gaza strip all to themselves after Israel pulled out, and tey just destroyed it.
But he said the group would never outright formally recognize Israel.

Holly In Cincinnati blogged This is nothing new from Hamas, which would love to import offensive weaponry for the next 10 years while ruling both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Hamas’ terrorist attacks will simply be farmed out to (or conveniently blamed upon) Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, Al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades etc…while Hamas claims to be at peace and that Israeli self-defense violates this ‘hudna’ (an Islamic temporary truce until victory can be attained over an unwary enemy).

Hamas had its chance to give up violence and become a constructive political organization when it won that so-called election. Hamas could have suppressed violence and dismantled the other terrorist groups (see above list) while working with Israel and the world community to ease the plight of its subjects. Did Hamas choose to grow up? No way! Hamas chose to blow its big chance and continue to bring misery to the Palestinian Arabs.

Only an ignorant, politically-correct, self-righteous moralizing fool would buy-into this nonsense.
