Hamas to soften stance on Israel, Muslim Brotherhood in policy document


[5/1/2017 3:58:15 PM]

AMMONNEWS - The Palestinian group Hamas will remove a call for Israel’s destruction and drop its association with the Muslim Brotherhood in a new policy document to be issued on Monday, Gulf Arab sources said.

Hamas’s move appears aimed at improving relations with countries in the region, which label the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, as well as with Western countries, many of which classify Hamas as a terrorist group over its hostility to Israel.

Israel: Hamas trying to fool the world with new policy paper
Israel said Hamas was trying to delude the world by issuing a new policy document on Monday that purportedly softens the Palestinian group’s policy towards Israel.

“Hamas is attempting to fool the world but it will not succeed,” said David Keyes, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“They build terror tunnels and have launched thousands upon thousands of missiles at Israeli civilians,” he said. “This is the real Hamas.”
