Hamas' 'New' Charter
From the JTA:
Hamas developing new charter
Hamas officials reportedly are working on a new charter that would give the organization a more moderate tone, while still calling for Israel’s destruction.
The Jerusalem Post reported Friday that Hamas officials are meeting in Beirut and Damascus about amending the charter, including eliminating anti-Semitic language, according to people advising the group. The goal is to reform the language to be more politically oriented as Hamas becomes the majority party in the Palestinian Authority Parliament.
The charter would countenance a long-term cease fire with Israel based on its pre-1967 boundaries, but still would call for the destruction of the Jewish state.
In other words, we still want your land and the annhilation of your race, but we won't call you "filthy, Zionist, Jew scum" while we are plotting against you.
