One-State Solution

Hamas Style:


Hamas on Thursday called on the UN to rescind the 1947 decision to partition Palestine into two states, one for Jews and one for Arabs.

The group said in a statement, released on the 60th anniversary of the UN vote, that "Palestine is Arab Islamic land, from the river to the sea, including Jerusalem... there is no room in it for the Jews."

Regarding the partition decision, Hamas said that "correcting mistakes is nothing to be ashamed of, but prolonging it is exploitation."


This is partly why Annapolis was a bit of a waste. All talk of a two-state solution is meaningless when one of the key actors in the region thinks this way. Carl at Israel Matzav seems to take the flip of this opinion, and oddly enough, appears to agree with Hamas that the 1947 partition plan was a mistake.

If both sides are indeed that far apart, then I don't know how any kind of peaceable deal can be reached.
