Oweis later offers us a clue as to what he believes Hamas has said those "rights" consist of:Hamas does not rule out peace talks with Israel if they realize what it considers Palestinian rights.
Actually, Hamas has not said this. The terror group has offered merely a 10-year "hudna" (cease-fire) if Israel withdraws from all territory beyond the 1949 Armistice Lines. So where did Oweis get the notion that Hamas had made this statement? From Jimmy Carter:Hamas had said it could live peacefully alongside Israel if Israel withdrew from all Palestinian land it occupied in the 1967 Middle East War.
A perfectly understandable conflation of the two.Earlier, Carter said that Hamas is prepared to accept the right of Israel to “live as a neighbor next door in peace."
