GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Wednesday said it does not accept the two-state solution, following reports the party had changed its position to accept the state of Israel.

The Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq reported Wednesday that Hamas politburo chief Khalid Mashaal asked Jordan's King Abdullah to inform US President Barack Obama that Hamas accepted the two-state solution.

Hamas said in a statement that the report was baseless and that Mashaal did not address the two-state solution in his meeting with the Jordanian king in Amman on Monday.

Senior Hamas official Yahya Moussa also denied the report and said recognizing the two-state solution would indicate acceptance of Israel's occupation of Palestine.

Hamas will not change its position, Moussa told Ma'an.

No Palestinian will agree to give away an inch of their land

#1) I wish all Israelis had the same conviction about their land. We could settle this dispute within a week!

Oops! For a brief moment it seemed like HAMAS was moving into this century.

Hamas politburo chief Khalid Mashaal is still dreaming about moving into his beach side villa in Herzliya near the golf course. Dream on!

Hamas represent half of Palestine's government, and it "denies accepting a
Two-State solution," which only gives Israel more international justification
to maintain the One-State (of Israel) and NO-State Palestine status-Quo !!

Then Hamas becomes an observer to any peace process - a situation its ego-driven leaders cannot tolerate. Look for a change in position down the road.

Consider accepting the Palestinian's method, of prolonging a
long-term UNsettled dispute, rather than accept a bad Settlement.
Arabs and Nazi States accept genocide, and yes Israel is too humane for it's own good, but Israel will never stoop to the enemy's level of inhumanity, so:
- Many states will continue to condemn Israel,
- Israel will continue to ignores their condemnations, while
- Jewish Settlements continue to go up, and
- unpermitted Arab construction goes down !!!!

With this thinking there will never be peace and there will never be a REAL country called Palestine!

This is why Israel doesn't have peace with the neighbors yet. Because a lot of the neighbors are completely unreasonable, irrational and insane.

# - what the Palestinians are asking for is that Israsel abides by International law. Not that hard to understand is it? #10 - it seems you find that difficult to understand too. # 3- Have you read the Likud charter? It says "no Palestinian state." so what's the difference between Netanyahu's stance, and that of his far right affiliates, and Hamas?.

The problem has nothing to do with Israel. It is all based on a false premise about having an enemy if man did not have a real enemy he would make one the greatest ability a human being is not to be caught up in a group think but think for yourself. Fear of the unknown causes a person to disassociate and so cannot differentiate and associate what is. The ability to reason is paramount one has to change the group think which is only to identify .

To #11 The difference is that there is a country called ISRAEL and not one called Palestine! Who is dealing from strength?

So Hamas denies accepting the 2-state "solution ???" ... Excellent ...because that's exactly what we do, too (despite what our government says). So as far as we're concerned, Khalid Mashaal is the best man on our side. Believe me, we couldn't ask for a stronger ally to support our position. Maybe I should suggest bringing him and Hamas into Netanyahu's coalition. That would boost the rate of our settlement-expansion full-blast.

I realize it's a matter of principle, but Hamas would be better off if they played the Zionist game: figure out what terms the other side can't possibly accept and offer that...then claim the whole pie when they're 'intransigent.' You're wrestling with a pig, and you're going to get dirty. Accept it.

To Abe #11 'The difference is that there is a country called ISRAEL and not one called Palestine! Who is dealing from strength?' And who is dealing from justice? When the strength is gone, what will happen? ...and the strength is going. Rather quickly, actually.

# 13 - "might is right? eh? And this from the "light to all nations"? (per Ben Gurion) That light has well and truly been extinguished - (if ever it was actually alight) - and all by Israel's own actions. Well done!

To#19, Yes Gabi in the Middle East MIGHT IS RIGHT!! sorry to say but there is no such thing as compromise at this time on either side. Hamas calls for the total destruction of ISRAEL. How would you deal with that?
