IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz cast his doubts on statements made Sunday by incoming Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, in which the Hamas leader said that his organization wanted to end the bloodshed and the longstanding conflict in the region. While visiting the draft boaaard at the Tel Hashomer Base, Halutz said that "we had anticipated that Hamas would try to sell ideas in which they themselves do not believe." "Let's wait and see if there will be tangible evidence backing up these statements. It is impossible to ignore facts on the ground. But as long as there are no such fcts, we'll take his statements with a grain of salt," Halutz concluded.
