Quotes-start.png "There are certain minimal requirements for statehood, not least of which is accepting the right of one’s sovereign neighbor to exist. At present, no representative of the Palestinian people concedes this right to Israel. As its 1988 charter makes plain, Hamas unapologetically seeks Israel’s destruction. This is why Hamas was formed: to eradicate the Jewish state as a preliminary step in the jihadist quest for global hegemony." Quotes-end.png
