This, of course, is nothing new, but this time around it was announced at a speech Haniyeh gave in Iran to 30,000 people celebrating the 1979 Iranian Islamic Revolution, or rather the descent from a cultured, civilized nation into the religious hell-hole that it now is.
Ahmadinejad and his mullahs have much in common with Haniyeh and Hamas, they all want Israel wiped off the map, and not much is going to change that mindset. Haniyeh said to the throng,
“They want us to recognize the Israeli occupation and cease resistance but, as the representative of the Palestinian people and in the name of all the world’s freedom seekers, I am announcing from Azadi Square in Tehran that we will never recognize Israel,” Ismail Haniyeh said.Which, obviously, leaves no room for Israelis, and makes any peace brokering efforts absolutely pointless. The U.S., U.N., Russia, and more recently the E.U., have all played their parts in attempting to bring peace to that region, but negotiations have never been fruitful because Hamas refuses to renounce violence or recognize Israel.
“The resistance will continue until all Palestinian land, including al-Quds (Jerusalem), has been liberated and all the refugees have returned,” he said.
Looks like things aren't about to change any time soon.
