Hamas affirms it will not recognize Israel...
It seems everybody wants to interpret varioius Hamas' statements as accepting of Israel. But, this is just silly.
Meanwhile, in a letter written to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar denied that he had agreed to recognize Israel's right to exist.
He wrote that the Palestinians wished to live in peace and security with their neighbors, but claimed that he did not mention Israel.
