Prime Minister
We Will Never
Recognize Israel

James Baker wants Israel to make concessions to the Palestinian government, so that America can achieve it's objective in Iraq (or should I say, to achieve Baker's objectives, whatever they are). But, one has to wonder what motivation Israel would have to negotiate with a government which refuses to ever recognize its existence.

( PA (Palestinian Authority) Prime Minister (Hamas) Ismail Haniyah told reporters in Iran that he and his colleagues will never recognize Israel.

Western leaders are pushing for the formation of a PA unity coalition including Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in the hope the government would recognize Israel.

Haniyah has stated repeatedly that Hamas will never recognize Israel, even in the framework of the unity government.
