Lets hope these bright fellows never have to apologize for the extinct Jews when they realize their mistake.
DON’T BELIEVE IN HAMAS TOUGH WORDS

Norwegian pro-Pal activists and intellectuals don’t harbor serious belief in the earnestness of Hamas rhetoric and intentions.
(On Hamas) “If Israel retreats to the 1967 borders, this will be able to start genuine talks. By then, I am certain Hamas will withdraw from their present standpoint of never recognizing Israel”. (Bjørnar Moxness, leader of the Marxist “Red” party.)
“Hamas holding this opinion are not news. What is new, actually, is Hamas supporting Mahmoud Abbas as his Fatah government applied for observer’s status in the UN, This is the first time Hamas enters cooperation with more moderate forces in Palestine. This is promising, thinking of a peace solution, says Annichen Lundgård, leader of the Palestine Committee in Norway”.
“Both the Palestine Committee and the “Red” holds the opinion Israel’s policies are the main obstacle for a peaceful solution: For as long as Israel maintain its blockade on Gaza and invade ever greater parts of the West Bank, there are no foundations for peace talks. If, on the other hand, Israel relates to international law, there will certainly be a basis for genuine talks”, says Lundgård.
“I am not an optimist in a brief perspective. But I don’t think hateful words in a celebrative speech are any absolute obstacle to a peace solution. In a longer perspective both parties know they are dependent of some sort of coexistence”, says Jensehaugen, a postgraduate at the NTNU
