Negotiating with Hamas

17 06 2008

From the AP:

Israel and the radical Islamic group Hamas have agreed on a truce to begin Thursday, Egypt’s state-owned news agency said Tuesday.


The agreement is designed to end months of daily Palestinian rocket and mortar assaults on Israeli border towns and bruising Israeli retaliation. Egypt has been laboring for months to broker an agreement between Israel and the Islamic militant Hamas, which do not have direct contact with each other.

Even if the negotiation process breaks down after employing an intermediary, namely the Egyptians, I wonder if President George W. Bush, or John McCain for that matter, will accuse the Israeli government of appeasement?

After all, Hamas, despite the winning a clear majority of the seats in the Palestinian parliament years ago, is still regarded as a terrorist organization.
