The Saudi delegate to the Annapolis farce apparently was spouting off about how there couldn't be a REAL peace conference--or a real peace, for that matter--without the participation of Hamas: http://www.tpmcafe.com/blog/coffeehouse/2007/nov/26/on_hamas_saud_al_faisal_agrees_with_colin_powell_who_agrees_with_brent_scowcroft_who_agrees_with_zb. You know what? He's right. But.............how can you have peace where one side denies the existence, let alone the legitimacy, of the other? See my post yesterday on how Hamas is calling on the U.N. to rescind the 1947 Partition Plan.
As an aside, check out the comments below the link I posted above. They are a very good insight into the mindset of the left.
