Seinfinnization of Hamas

Bush, on Palestinian political party Hamas:

"A political party, in order to be viable, is one that professes peace, in my judgment, in order that it will keep the peace."

So much for the Republican Party. He goes on:

"And so you're getting a sense of how I'm going to deal with Hamas if they end up in positions of responsibility. And the answer is: Not until you renounce your desire to destroy Israel will we deal with you."

This seems to be a common response to the seinfinnization of Hamas. Hamas' official platform no longer calls for the destruction of Israel. I know it's difficult, but Bush should really try to keep up with the news. Letting this type of organization in the political door is always a good idea, as is talking to their leaders.
