Russia: Hamas to end attacks against Israel

Well here is some positive news…

From USA Today:

Hamas supreme leader Khaled Mashaal promised during a meeting Tuesday with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow that the militant Palestinian group will end missile attacks and other violence against Israel, Lavrov said.

However, Mashaal said his group is not ready to recognize the Jewish state. Renouncing violence and recognizing Israel are key demands of international peace negotiators before ending a financial aid boycott of the Hamas-led Palestinian government.

Hopeful, but we will see how ling this lasts. I mean, if they do not recognize Israel’s right to exist they must be planning on doing something about that, right?
