My Mideast Punchlines: a bonanza of non-sequiters…quack, quack.

Non-sequitur 1 (Wall Street Journal): Hamas dropped a longstanding call for Israel’s destruction and accepted the notion of a Palestinian state based on Israeli borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. The group, however, said it would continue not to recognise Israel’s right to exist and would eventually seek to control all of historic Palestine, making up Israeli territory, the West Bank and Gaza.

Non-sequiter 2 (AP): It has also dropped explicit language calling for Israel’s destruction, though it retains the goal of eventually “liberating” all of historic Palestine, which includes what is now Israel.

It doesn’t matter what terms Hamas uses to couch its charter. If it talks like a duck…..etc., etc.
