Hamas rejects Arab League peace proposal

 

(JNS.org) The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas has rejected a revised peace initiative by the Arab League. The Arab League’s peace initiative calls for Israel to completely withdraw to the pre-1967 lines, as well as a “just” solution to the Palestinian refugee situation. The proposal, modified during a recent meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Arab League leaders, includes the possibility of “land swaps” between Israel and the Palestinians. “The so-called new Arab initiative is rejected by our people, by our nation and no one can accept it,” said Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of Hamas, Al-Jazeera reported. “The initiative contains numerous dangers to our people in the occupied land of 1967, 1948 and to our people in exile,” Haniyeh said. Hamas refuses to recognize the state of Israel.
