The head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, said on Friday that Hamas would never recognize Israel's right to exist, but would be willing to negotiate a long-term cease-fire with the Jewish state. In an interview with the Palestinian Authority newspaper Al-Hayyat al-Jedida, Mashaal said that Hamas would "never recognize the legitimacy of the Zionist state that was founded on our land."
