Peace in the M.E.

Palestinian unity government won't bring peace: Peres

Wed Dec 6, 2006 3:34am ET

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres said on Wednesday a Palestinian unity government would be a facade aimed at easing Western economic sanctions rather than a new framework for seeking peace with Israel.

"Hamas doesn't want peace, even if we give them 1967 borders," Peres told Israel Radio, referring to the governing Islamist group and the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip, territory Israel captured in a war that year.

Peres said Hamas, which advocates Israel's destruction, would effectively be at the helm of a unity government of non-political technocrats it has been trying to form with moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction.

"Hamas wants to use Fatah as a cover, a facade, so they can get money," Peres said.(link)
At least someone in office in Israel has figured out that Hamas DOES NOT WANT peace. Unless of course you count the piece that comes with all the Israelis dead. [heh]

Maybe one day there will be peace in the middle east, but I rather doubt it.
