Hamas aide: Group to undergo ideological changes

Hamas will undergo ideological changes in the near future, according to Ahmed Youssuf, PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh's political adviser, Army Radio reported. In an interview with the London-based newspaper Asharq al-Awsat, Youssuf said that "diplomatic activity could achieve our demands, instead of armed resistance." He added that "Hamas will accept the establishment of a Palestinian state with the 1967 borders, with the implementation of the Right of Return, in exchange for a 10-year cease-fire with the option of an extension."
