    Naturally, the Guardian doesn't address how the Hamas Charter, which calls for the destruction of Israel, is compatable with the "two state" solution, that appears to be so popular these days.

    The article also states that the Palestinians have been occupied for almost a century. How can that all be Israel's fault, when it has only existed since 1946?

    Mind you, they couldn't have claimed that they were being oppressed for longer than that, as most of the descendants of the "Palestinians" only moved there about 100 years ago from Iraq, Eqypt and Syria.

    someone should speak for palistine. It just shouldn't be Hamas, I say they have lost their speaking privelage.

    Palestine has never existed as a sovereign state. The mandatory province called Palestine, which was part of the Ottoman Empire, was never independent.

    Hamas, as repugnant as they are, do actually speak for the "Palestinian people", as they were democratically elected, and in fact, the other main faction, the Fatah group, has just made a pact with them to temporarily join forces. It should be recognised that Hamas has a popular following, refuses to recognise Israel as a state, and in fact is actually committed to its destruction through that party's charter. Using that as a perfectly fair justification, all those payments made every year to those "Palestinian People" by America ($600 million last year), the EU ($400 million last year) and most idiotically of all, by Israel, should be stopped immediately.

    Stop that Jizya tax now.

    Derius is right... Hamas did win a majority vote. Though some say this was more of a protest vote against corruption in Fatah.

    The thing is, action speak louder than words.

    I know he is right, and I have heard the same reason you give. But Mahmound Abbas is the palestinian president and - so far - he has no bonds with hamas. I only said that cause there is so much going on over there.
    I say there is alot more than corruption involved.
    ... my only argument would be Bush was elected too, twice, and not everyone supports him.
    Remember I always try to see all sides.

    Mahmound Abbas is indeed the Palestinian president and is not linked with Hamas. He also leads the Fatah party, which has as terrorist component al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades....

    All everyone ever talks is politics.
    Abbas is also the only one seeming to try and work something out, though that may soon include with hamas too.
    No one involved is innocent including Israel, but I am way beyond caring who started it and keeping a score card tally. All the fighting is solving nothing. You can't tell me there aren't people in palestine who would just like to start having a life. Look up how many refugees fled palistine over the years, blaming hamas (ect) and Israel for destroying their futures. As I said in my first comment, someone does need to speak for palistine, and add then someone has to listen. I think thats how the whole mess stared. No one listens to each other.
