From the Palestinian Authority foreign minister visiting France:
Ziad Abu Amr, on a three-day visit to France, met Monday with French counterpart Philippe Douste-Blazy and was holding talks Tuesday with Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin….
“I must admit I’m both surprised and impressed with the speed and the magnitude of Hamas’s transformation,” he is quoted as saying. He cited Hamas’s willingness to accept a future Palestinian state contained within territory Israel occupied in the Six Day War as an example of the movement’s ideological shift.
From Hamas itself:
Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan said in response to reports that Israel was planning a major operation in the Gaza Strip, “Hamas and the Palestinian people are fully prepared for the next battle with the Israeli enemy. Our response will be painful because our men are prepared for jihad and martyrdom. Hamas remains committed to jihad as a strategic option for liberating all of Palestine. This enemy understands only the language of force and we will teach them an unforgettable lesson.”
