U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told her “townterview” at the Newseum in Washington, DC on January 29 that she hopes Hamas will turn into a “political entity.” She said it is her “great hope” that they will be “at the table” of negotiations in the future.
Watch video at Breitbart where she references her old pals the PLO (and Fatah).
Meanwhile, here’s what Hamas says about negotiations via The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement.
Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement.
There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors. The Palestinian people know better than to consent to having their future, rights and fate toyed with.
And contrary to Clinton’s naive and foolish “hope” of Hamas renouncing its jihadist existence, Hamas plans to establish a military academy in the Gaza Strip to train and educate schoolchildren.
He said that children in grades 7-9 could join the school and graduate with a diploma or a BA in military affairs.
Haniyeh said that the new academy would educate and prepare children for the establishment of a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea.”
