An amazing story from Avi Issacharov, one of Haaretz‘s best reporters: The son of one of the West Bank’s most notorious Hamas leaders has converted to Christianity. And he rejects his previous life with a vengeance:
“Send regards to Israel, I miss it. I respect Israel and admire it as a country,” he says.
“You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never have peace with Hamas. Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews. They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death.”
That would appear to be an accurate rendering of the prospects of peace with Hamas. In Gaza, the kids are being trained at terrorist summer camps.
