Former Israeli General Says Israel Should Make A Peace Deal With Hamas



He says that Israel should end the naval blockade and recognize the Hamas government.

quote:

The Israeli government will need to make political compromises in order to reach a security arrangement that will ensure the end of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, former IDF Maj. Gen. (ret.) Giora Eiland told Haaretz on Sunday.

“Israel’s bottom line interest toward Gaza is a security issue – that they won’t fire at us,” said Eiland, who also served as the head of Israel’s National Security Council. “Consequently, if we can reach an arrangement, it’s preferable to give ground on certain political issues in exchange for a better security arrangement.”

This sort of agreement would include “a mutual cease-fire and an Egyptian guarantee of not just quiet, but also that no weapons will enter Gaza,” Eiland said, adding that “this arrangement would be guaranteed by additional parties, for example, Qatar and Turkey.”

Among the political compromises that could be made in exchange for such a security arrangement, Eiland listed lifting the naval blockade of Gaza “so that the European Union member countries could send under supervision dinghies into Gaza’s port.”

Eiland also suggested that Israel recognize Gaza as a state under Hamas’ rule. “This is a country a ruled by an elected government and I expect that this government will act in a responsible manner, like a state would,” Eiland said.

Geez.

If we used records anymore, people might understand my reference of you being a broken one.

Can you get a little more geopolitical than thinking any support for Israel is based on fundi Christians?

Folks like you said the same thing about the IRA, the ANC and Haganah before they signed peace deals.

I certainly didn't because I avoid Israel discussions on this board for the most part like the plague. So I've never stated a single thing about anything you just referenced. Nice try though.

Focus on the bolded word "Folks like you"

Only one of those groups has anything to with Israel and that was a long time ago. I know citing other examples and using evidence isn't the norm on this board, but it can be helpful

It carries the same inference in that you're trying to lump with some group so you can continue your tangential talking point. You said the first comment. It was stupid. Deal with it.

I know that. But I can see how my post could be misinterpreted. Whatever.

You really do need to brush up on your history of the issues if you're going to engage in constructive debate of the thread topic. If you did, you would know exactly what I meant.

I don't need to be a foreign policy wonk to realize that Hamas shouldn't recognized as anything but what they are.

All I did was explain why involvement in terror doesn't preclude organizations from making peace, which seems to be a concept you refuse to accept. Are you not aware of how many of the world's most notorious terrorists have visited the White House during the administrations of both Republicans and Democrats, and been greeted as statesmen? The most recent example of this is Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood.
