Hamas Threatens Israel -- Thanks to the US

Congress has a proposal on the table. They are preparing to ratify a bill calling for global recognition of Jerusalem as the Jewish capital and linking that recognition to the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state. I find it brilliant. Hamas, scared crapless, has threatened to ramp up the violence against Israelis if the bill is passed.

The bill also notes that while Jerusalem is central to the Jewish faith, it is not mentioned even once by name in the Koran.

“Jerusalem is essential in Judaism, it is mentioned in the Bible 766 times,” the proposal states.

Hamas is saying they want Jerusalem as the capital of a Muslim Palestinian state and will not accept less. Now I know it's smart in negotiations to shoot for the moon and to be talked down from there but they are simply out of their minds if they think it's going to happen. But their plan seems brilliant. They are making all sorts of wild demands, like wanting control of the Gaza boarder crossings, etc., and when Israel turns them down -- Israel will be the one blamed for not cooperating.

'Israel will be the one blamed for not cooperating.'

From what you quoted from Congress, it sounds like they don't really care what Hamas has to say about it. Israel may be blamed by the Europeans, but the US is now in a position to tell them all to pound sand.

No matter what's done the Europeans won't like it right now.
Then again, Europe is all talk and very little action.

They wouldn't do that. They are a peaceful religious organiztion practicing the Religion Of Peace.

I haven't looked at the link yet. But, I want to know who introduced this proposal.

Gindy: The proposed legislation was submitted by Senator Sam Brownback (Rep.-Kansas).

TS, you're right; I'm guessing the US won't blame Israel but the rest of the world will.

felis -- you got that right about Europe.

lol gindy

Yeah, it'll die, unfortunately. Only Republicans seem to be interested in it. Good for Brownback, though. He's also onboard with tougher action against the Arab creeps enjoying happy-fun genocide in the Sudan.
