Leave It To The Palestinians...

...to shoot themselves, and the peace process, in the foot. It has been the history of the Palestinians, whenever peace is close, to do something to stop it. From Munich to Camp David, history is littered with the failure of the Palestinians to grasp peace with Israel.

The latest chapter, with the terrorist organization Hamas winning a majority of seats in the Palestinian parliament may be the last, and worst, bullet the Palestinians can shoot at themselves. Hamas has not changed, or recanted their charter, the Martyr's oath:
"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious...The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised...
That's the beginning. Here's the final paragraph:
Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Muslim people. 'May the cowards never sleep.'"
I'm having some trouble seeing these folks as "partners in peace." It's time we realized that the Palestinians have never wanted peace. They want victory. Hamas has offered to give them that victory, and the Martyr's Oath of Hamas spells out the terms of that victory, the total destruction not just of Israel, but of Judaism. At least Hamas is honest about its goals, at least for now. Their honesty may change as they gain political power. The goals won't. But the honesty may fade as they seek to consolidate their gains before launching their next attack on Israel, and it's ally, The United States.
