Hamas Says It Does Not Want Rockets Fired

Many Middle Eastern leaders are seeking to find new ways of ending conflict in the Middle East and bring about some type of agreement between Israel and Palestinians. Great Britain has announced it will enter discussions with Hamas political leaders and even allowed a prominent Hamas official to speak in London. After recent rocket attacks on Israel from Gaza, the Hamas leadership made clear it will not support such violence. “Regarding the report about rockets fired from Gaza, we emphasize that these rockets have no link to any of the Palestinian resistance groups and are being fired at the wrong time. We emphasize that the security agencies are investigating who is behind such acts.”

There is evidence Hamas understands it has to make moves to reflect a regional desire for peace and it most probably is ready to enter into what is termed a long term truce with Israel. Hopefully, if negotiations between President Abbas of Fatah and Hamas can conclude with some form of compromise, the stage will be set for serious negotiations with Israel. Perhaps, the modern problem is the inability of Israel to enter into such an agreement.

    Step one is for Palestinians to use the tactics of Martin Luther King–non violence peaceful protest. The world will force Israel to compromise if Palestinians would simply follow the model of Martin Luther King and Gandhi. Lay down arms, find friends among Israelis who seek peace, and take to the streets in peaceful protest.
