Hamas As A Political Party
Is A Violation Of The Oslo Agreements

Haaretz came up with an interesting suggestion for Ariel Sharon. From the Eurabian Times:

Sharon can demand that the Americans explain to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) that Hamas' participation in the Palestinian Legislative Council elections is a blatant violation of the Oslo B agreement, which states that the ballots will be closed to organizations and individuals that commit or advocate racism or pursue the implementation of their aims by unlawful or undemocratic means.

Racism practically drips off every page of the Hamas charter of August 1988. "The Nazism of the Jews," says the charter, is what provoked World War II, in which the Jews "collected immense benefits from trade in war materials, and prepared for the establishment of their state ..."

Wow, I didn't know that the Oslo Agreements made such a stipulation. If that is so, then the Palestinian Authority was in violation of their own agreement from the minute they signed it. After all, the Palestinian Authority Charter (posted on their UN website) calls for the destruction of Israel.
