Question: Why do people seem to disregard that Hamas has gone on record multiple times saying they’d accept peace with Israel on the terms of them withdrawing from the West Bank (1967 borders) and insist all Palestinians want to kill all Jews?
Answer: I don’t believe it. Hamas fired 4500 missiles into Israel over 52 days in 2014. Then accepted a cease fire after Israel retaliated.
This time, it fired the same number of missiles in 10 days. Also used the time in between to build vast network of tunnels as well as its missile arsenal. It’s all deliberate and self destructive.
Israel’s Iron Dome shot down 90% of the missiles and some of their own missiles landed inside Gaza killing their own people. Israel has now demolished most of their tunnels.
It is time they learnt it is not worth it and started really trying to live in peace with Israel. Then they would get no more bombs from Israel but probably a lot of help to make life better for their people.
But Hamas doesn’t want to do anything constructive. If they do the same again and build up their weapons, they will end up with the same scenario or possibly worse for themselves.
The Palestinians have had opportunities to make peace with Israel and accept most of the terms they wanted but refused each time, because they are stuck in the mode of destroying Israel as the only solution.
It’s time for Hamas to make a real change to their ways.
