When a democratic country is threatened by a terrorist country, what can be done?
Khalid Amayreh. writing in The Palestinian Times says this:
"The leadership of the Palestinian Islamic resistant movement, Hamas, has reasserted its principled refusal to recognize the Zionist entity (Israel), saying that Israel is an illegitimate state based on ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
"Ismael Haniya, the legitimate Palestinian Prime Minister, told foreign dignitaries visiting Gaza last month ... "We will not cave in to pressure, we will not betray our people's trust, we will not recognize the illegitimate Zionist entity. This has always been our stance, and it will never change."
